Liberal Heroes, Part 2: Ted Kennedy

The so-called Lion of the Senate was revered by liberals far and wide for his communist views on all things, especially nationalized healthcare. He was better known for Chappaquiddick, where he got drunk and went for a late-night drive with a young woman and crashed into a creek. Good ole Teddy abandoned the girl to drown, and walked away.

An escapade of Teddy's dating back to 1961 shows more of his true nature. None of this is surprising. These are liberal values on display, nothing more, nothing less. At least nobody was abandoned to drown this time.

    The memo said that during Kennedy's stop in Santiago, "he made arrangements to 'rent' a brothel for an entire night." The memo said Kennedy allegedly "invited one of the Embassy chauffeurs to participate in the night's activities."

    The memo suggested other officials had run-ins with Kennedy on the trip. It said that in Mexico, Ambassador Mann -- presumably longtime State Department diplomat Thomas Mann -- pushed back when Kennedy wanted to invite "certain left-wingers" to the embassy residence for interviews.

Teddy was meeting with communists in Latin America. Again, no surprise. It's what fellow travelers do.
