Famed author Joyce Carol Oates is now trying her hand at the moral relativism of the left, attempting to gloss over the actions of a younger Senator Kennedy many Americans never knew. In case America wasn't getting the picture, that liberals really do not see anything morally objectionable in Uncle Teddy's actions (and lack of action) at Chappaquiddick in 1969 that left a woman dead, E.J. Dionne did his part with his aptly titled article "Ted Kennedy's Humanity".
You really must forgive me, dear reader, but I will not be participating in the maddening, hysterical race to hoist Ted Kennedy upon the altar of political heroism. Leaving a young woman to drown in his car at the bottom of a lake while never - never - acknowledging the inherent inhumanity of his actions that night deserves neither praise nor honor. And he shall be receiving none from The Tusk.
