We'll cross that bridge when we come to it, Mary Jo

by CynthiaYockey on July 25, 2009

Just so all you young whippersnappers know, it’s been 40 years this month since Sen. Ted Kennedy drove off a bridge on Chappaquidick Island in Masschusetts late at night after a party and left a young staffer, Mary Jo Kopechne, behind in the car to drown. The analysis of his motives was epitomized by this joke:

“Teddy, I think I’m pregnant. What are we going to do?”

“We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, Mary Jo.”

So it seems that story was vivid in Iowahawk’s mind this week as he contemplated the healthcare reform bill now before Congress, Sen. Kennedy’s support of that bill and how others who placed their lives in his hands have fared.

    One of the things that has kept me alive since my stroke back in ’05 is the determination to live to pee on Kennedy’s grave.

      Peter,

      I don’t have any particular animus toward Ted Kennedy, what with having been liberal for so long, but YOU are dear to me, so let me know the time and date, and I’ll be your lookout.

    Cynthia, I still contend that, although you voted lib, you lived conservative. I base this on the fact that you fiercely defended the love of your life and how you are taking care of your Dad, even though it costs you.

    And, as I compete for the longest sentence award…Those clues tell me about a conservative life. Life is far more than politics, we do not always vote the way we live. If we did these modern Dems would have about ten percent of the Congressional seats.

    As you are well aware I am no expert on the lesbian lifestyle. In my purposely rural life I know more than a few old spinsters sharing homes “to save money”. In my career as a deputy sheriff I had no reason to inspect the bedrooms. Nor those of the old bachelors. These folks live conservative lives. Yet they mostly vote liberal. Go figure. So, we see the left ignoring their promises to the Alphabet Community while they end the vouchers program that lets poor black kids go to the same schools Obambi’s kids go to. It seems to me far more folks will start wondering why they vote different than they live.

      Peter,

      So many social conservatives want homosexuals dead, or to be no more than second-class citizens with fewer rights than illegal aliens, and treat us so badly in every way they can, that they are the face of conservatism for homosexuals, so they vote for the liberals who — don’t take this the wrong way — only give them lip-service. However, I do believe that with more conservative gays and lesbians now like me to explain conservatism, gays and lesbians will vote in increasing numbers for fiscal conservatism since we are predominantly an entrepreneurial community.

      Cynthia
