Re: Yeah, Just Like Chappaquiddick

Dave, interesting this Washington Post editorial page mention by David Ignatius of Chappaquiddick, one of not even a handful of (passing) mentions over the last few decades on the Post's editorial page (almost all of which regarded it, like David Broder in 2003, as nothing more than an "accident"; in 1993 Howard Kurtz termed it an "incident"; only Richard Cohen, in 1991, called it a "coverup").

If anything, Ignatius blurted out the truth that dare not speak its name. The liberal media culture has covered for Ted Kennedy since 1969. It has been complicit in his shamelessness. Now it wants to tar Dick Cheney with the Chappaquiddick brush? As one of its therapists might advise, you don't want to go there!
