"I've done a lot of true life stories, many sports stories, but this one had a deep impact on this country," said Ciardi. "Everyone has an idea of what happened on Chappaquiddick and this strings together the events in a compelling and emotional way. You'll see what he had to go through…On the eve of the moon landing, Senator Kennedy becomes entangled in a tragic car accident that results in the death of former Robert Kennedy campaign worker Mary Jo Kopechne. The Senator struggles to follow his own moral compass and simultaneously protect his family's legacy, all while simply trying to keep his own political ambitions alive."

'Scuse me? What HE had to go through? How about what SHE had to go through? Slowly dying in the car flooding with cold water, knowing that he has abandoned her, knowing how this would probably affect her family, feeling betrayed, feeling guilty and likely feeling very scared.

What HE had to go through?

Where was this movie when it could have made a difference?

And at this point who the hell cares what he had to go through trying to follow his "moral compass?"

"What HE had to go through?"

Yeah, it was a major buzz kill. All day partying and for what?!? He even had to swim home. Give the poor guy a break!

It was probably hard trying to follow it with the needle spinning this way and that.

Political thriller. The real story.

Not very granular, but easy to read…

… moral compass.

Demo c-rats trying to resurrect the 'Family'
Hehehe < (sinister :D)
Cheers BTW,please note I find all politicians distasteful at the moment.

Terrement Inactive Member15 Dec 2015 9:26 a.m. PST


I find it much easier to track when I do NOT find them distasteful as the frequency is much less as is the duration.

Good Grief. At what point does the Kennedy mystic finally end. What he went through…right…you mean like serving the senate for many years after the event? Living a long life in wealth and privilege? How come I think Mary Jo would have changed places with him any time he wanted.

LOL. Terrement, I get you man stay well:)

Inkpaduta could not agree more, after the one crashed his plane a coworker remark about how that family had was tragically curse. I could only respond what tragically rich?

Ted Kennedy had a moral compass?

Personal logo The Tin Dictator Supporting Member of TMP18 Dec 2015 7:57 a.m. PST

I believe they meant "amoral" compass.

I can hear this in a college dean's office right now.

Dean: "Son, fat drunk and stupid is no way to go through life."

Student: "Why not? It worked for Ted Kennedy."

Forgive me if I don't wax rhapsodic about this Marxist buffoon. This is trying to put lipstick on a pig and send it out on a date.
