Chappaquiddick Blues

I found an excellent funeral dirge for old Teddy, hopefully they’ll bury his ass soon and we can finally be done with this disgusting Kennedy fetish.

By the way, can anybody name this band?


  1. HSLD says:

    I don’t know who they are, but I’d like to hear some more. That sort of music is right up my street.

  2. Daphne says:

    I like them too, HSLD. I dug around for a half hour and couldn’t discover the name.

    I bet you like Chris Whitley and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

  3. Nick M says:

    What seems to have been forgotten in this wankfest over TK is that he was morally reprehensible at Chappaquiddick. So, top post Cats. I am sick to the back teeth of hearing how he was the “Lion of American Liberalism”. He wasn’t. He was a fat self-satisfying git who was like choice three amongst his brothers.

  4. Daphne says:

    Word, Nick.

  5. RAB says:

    The Kennedys used to fantasise that they were were just Irish Peasants, hard handed sons of the soil, when in fact they were more akin to Norman robber Barons.

    They took what they wanted in both money and women, trampled others rights while posing as the champions of freedom.

    They were the embodiment of “entitled” evil, and none more so than Uncle Ted.

    The Kennedy myth will live on, whatever we have to say about them though.

    This piece nails Teddy pretty well.–left-young-woman-die.html

    And dont forget folks, Big Daddy Joe would have sold out Britain to Hitler in a goddam second, so much did he hate us.

    Lovely people! Saviours of the world!!

  6. RAB says:

    Oh and as for the band, well it should be

    The Dead Kennedys!

    But it’s the wrong answer, they could never play Blues like that, fairly pedestrian though it is.

    If you like that HSLD, I could point you to a million better…

    He was a sociopath. No doubt about it. Failing to report the Chappaquiddick accident for nine hours, calmly returning to his motel and talking with friends as if nothing unusual had occurred; the TV address where he turned it on himself (“I wonder whether some awful curse did actually hang over all the Kennedys”); naming, as Mr.E. pointed out the other day, his dog “Splash”…

    He thought he was smarter than everybody else. Worse; like any sociopath, he thought everybody else was inconsequential; not exactly real. As that Mail article reports, “ Mary Jo’s mother later said: ‘I don’t think he ever said he was sorry.’” That’s because he wasn’t. Life was about him alone, and the only important thing was not to get caught. And he didn’t, the bastard.

  8. Daphne says:

    Nick, that’s slang for “I agree.” 😉

  9. Ian B says:

    Worse; like any sociopath, he thought everybody else was inconsequential; not exactly real.

    Reminds me of the Cambridge Apostles, whose in joke was that everything in the world outside their group was just “phenomena”.

    I wonder if they’ll bury him in an ass hole.

    “I am sick to the back teeth of hearing how he was the “Lion of American Liberalism”. He wasn’t. He was a fat self-satisfying git who was like choice three amongst his brothers.”

    That’s exactly what makes him the ‘Lion of American Liberalism’. Especially since the Democrats corrupted the term ‘liberal’ to what it now stands for…

  11. Nick M says:

    Well if they bury him up Lord Mandelson’s ass-hole then…

    Well it would be like all my Christmas’s had come at once.

    Exactly Julia and we are stealing it back. One pixel at a time.

    The video was posted by Bill Stu who played with a band called Morgan Stu from 1991 to 1996 and they released a track called Chappaquiddick Blues during that time so I am assuming that is who it is.

  13. alf stone says:

    Sorry I got my dates mixed up it should read 1986 to 1991.

  14. […] … I just want to thank Countingcats for (a) bringing this little gem to my attention, and also (2) for reminding me exactly how useless […]

  15. Sam Duncan says:

    Oh, this is good. I’ve just been nosing around the LA site through that trackback. Do any of the lefty pressure groups have a Keeley Hazell portal? I think not…

    (And yes, I am a bit late. What can I say? I didn’t know.)

  16. Paul Marks says:

    One of the few times in my life I found myself agreeing with “Hezza” – Lord H. was on the B.B.C. “Any Questions” show and he punctured the BBC lie that Senator Edward Kennedy helped with the Ulster peace “process”.

    “I was in the Major government, have talked with John and have read his account – and Senator Kennedy was of no help at all. What he did do was support the IRA – for decades”.

    Lord H. also pointed out that when Mrs Thatcher spoke to Congress only one person did not stand up – Senator Edward Kennedy.

    So much for his “politeness”, “grace”, and his “human feeling for people on the other side of politics” even Fox News has come out with this nonsense.

    The only person who has not had a good word to say about Edward Kennedy is Glenn Beck – who has ignored the death.

    Nor was Senator Kennedy even the “lion of the Senate” anymore – indeed it is hardly a secret that the most powerful person in the Senate since the Democrats took control after the elections of 2006 has been Dick Durbin (he of the Durbin/Daley machine that won Barack Obama the caucus events, Clinton won most of the primaries, and thereby got him the nomination).

    The Kennedy endorsement did not even win Obama Massachusetts in the nomination struggle – whereas the Durbin/Obama “activists” at the Caucus events were vital.

    Even in 2008 Edward Kennedy was yesterday’s man.

    A nasty piece of work to the end certainly – but no longer one of the enemies top people (whatever the left say about him now he is dead).
