Teddy Kennedy's Love Child

According to the National Enquirer (yeah, we know, that National Enquirer), Ted Kennedy was a busy guy back in 1983, and there's a 21-year-old man to show for it.

In fairness, considering how a lot of people lived in the '60s, '70s and '80s, there were a lot of "love children". But when you read the details you are struck by the overall callousness of the arms-length treatment not only of Teddy but of the Kennedy clan.
“Caroline announced to the family that she was two months pregnant around May 1984,” blabbed a Bilodeau confidante. “Ted was not happy about the news. He already had three kids with Joan and knew a baby out of wedlock could hurt him politically.”
According to the Enquirer, the scandal-scarred senator begged Bilodeau to have an abortion, but she refused.
“He told her he couldn’t undergo another scandal — not after Chappaquiddick, not so close to his divorce from Joan” said the source. “He was very angry when she defied him and had the child.”
No wonder the senator's been so "pro-choice" (as long as the choice is abortion).

Some undoubtedly will say, "But the National Enquirer has such a reputation!" We'll just repeat what Jay Tea of Wizbang had to say:
Yeah, I know, it's the Enquirer. But over the last decade or so, that paper has had a track record for accuracy that outshines the New York Times.
Add to that better credibility than Senator Ted.

Please back this one up with something other than a tabloid!

Surely you have better sources. Mr. Kennedy may not be the apple of anyone's eye, but, if you want to destroy his reputation, lets do it with something along the lines of a conventional newspaper.

Do you not have any decency sir!

Mr. Anonymous, you raise several good questions.

On better sources? Not yet.

Destroying Teddy's reputation? He's done a pretty good job of that all by himself, and our little ol' Okie blog ain's a-gonna lose him votes in the People's Republic of Massachusett where it seems the eyes of a majority still see him as a shining apple. But that's quite a compliment, yes sirree!

On conventional newspapers? Print is dead, though portions of the body are still twitching, mostly trying to keep up with the cable news nets.

On our perceived lack of decency? Guess not.

Why no level of decency? Mr. Kennedy may be descpicable in your eyes, but he still is a child of God's and last I heard he has a soul.

"... and last I heard he had a soul."

And he, like all of us, should attend to it without delay.

Lets leave the judgement of the senator's soul to God...the rightful judge, otherwise mind your own business.

Have a nice day!
