Why Ted goes to Hell CLV

Kennedy Legacy # 72

 This isn't a revelation, but a timely reminder. Just as Edward Kennedy was instrumental in the Bork Borking that triggered what has by now become a war to the death between Americans and ratbastardmotherfarkingcorksuckingdemocrats, Teddy was an early advocate of his party's now standard "Hooray for Democrats, Fuck the USA" model for governing.  Sorry Ted, it's Antenora for you.

Robinson, writing for, says Kennedy sent his close friend, former California state Sen. John Tunney, to Moscow with a secret message to Andropov: Help the Democrats battle Reagan in the 1984 presidential election, and in return Kennedy would help Andropov in dealing with Reagan.

Robinson recounts that Victor Chebrikov, a top KGB official, recorded the details of Kennedy's offer in a memo that was uncovered in Soviet archives in 1991.

Kennedy promised to:

  • Visit Moscow and prep the Soviets on effective propaganda. "The main purpose of the meeting, according to the senator, would be to arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they may be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA," states the Sovietmemo.
  •  Help Andropov get on U.S. television. "A direct appeal ... to the American people will, without a doubt, attract a great deal of attention and interest in the country," states the memo. "If the proposal is recognized as worthy, then Kennedy and his friends will bring about suitable steps to have representatives of the largest television companies in the USA contact Y.V. Andropov for an invitation to Moscow for the interviews. ... The senator underlined the importance that this initiative should be seen as coming from the American side.

According to the memo, Kennedy also had told Tunney that he planned to run for president in 1988. [Kennedy's Secret Soviet Overture Against Reagan]

    Tunney is still alive. More is the pity.
