    Some may say and too fob off his infamy, that: disgrace is followed by redemption, that Ted Kennedy's good works in the course of his long political career in Washington should outweigh the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident, for which he is often remembered.

    Many democrats seem to portray this car crash, implies Kennedy was involved in a simple accident which his passenger died. They seem to regard it as an unfortunate occurrence that could perhaps happen to anyone at any time. However for Americans the incident epitomised the most heinous abuse of privilege imaginable, from one of it's members of American royalty.

    This is because only a members of a rich and powerful family would be able to escape serious punishment for the situation that Kennedy found himself in,and his response to it.

    The whole incident symbolised to many the injustice of a system that is not supposed to consider wealth and standing in the context of the American law, and it only adds to the legacy of bad behaviour of all kinds attributed to the Kennedy clan.

    . . . it's not for nothing that one historian described the Kennedy familly's arrival in Washington as akin to the Borgias taking over a respectable northern Italian town . . .

    . . . and it is the sign of an empire (not a republic anymore) in steep decline when such parvenus and mountebanks can be considered ersatz nobility . . .
