HARTFORD, Connecticut (AP) - Republican Rep.
Christopher Shays defended the House speaker's handling of a congressional page
scandal, saying no one died like during the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident
involving Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy.
(ap) - "...the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident
involving Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy."... That's an Interesting Take. Seems
that a DWAI on the part of Bush (43) a Quarter of a Century ago, where no Person
Died, was Covered with a tad more Accusatory Tone by the AP... - tha malcontent)
"I know the speaker didn't go over a bridge and leave a young person in the
water, and then have a press conference the next day," the embattled Connecticut
congressman told The Hartford Courant in remarks published Wednesday.
(Ah... Shays is "Embattled" According to the AP...
Setting the Stage to Dismiss someone's Comments, AP? You're Certainly not
Cheerleading for one Side over the other, are you?... - tha malcontent)
"Dennis Hastert didn't kill anybody," he added.
Shays' comments recalled the Chappaquiddick incident, when Kennedy's car ran off
a Massachusetts bridge, killing his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy did not
immediately report the tragedy, and he later pleaded guilty to leaving the scene
of an accident.
(Kennedy's Car is to Blame for Mary Jo's Death?...
"Kennedy's car ran off"... Ted wasn't Driving, Apparently?... And of course, the
"killing his passenger" Solidifies the Fact the AP will lay no Blame at the
Senior Balloon's feet for his Actions that night... No, the Car did it...
Reminds me of the "SUV Kills Pedestrian" Stories... I will have to go back and
check my Archives, but MeThinks the AP didn't Blame Bush's Car for his
"Incident"! - tha malcontent)
Last week, Kennedy campaigned for Democrat Diane Farrell, who is locked in a
bitter fight with Shays that could help determine whether Democrats recapture
the House after 12 years of GOP control.
("Recapture" the House... Where it Rightfully
belongs, isn't that Correct, AP?... - tha malcontent)
"This is symptomatic of Chris losing his composure in a tight race," Farrell
said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday. "Chris
just seems to be lashing out in anger."
(No Denial of what Kennedy did, of course. - tha
Kennedy's office had a terse response.
"This just makes clear the real need for change in November. Beyond that I'm not
going to dignify such a desperate attack with a response," said Kennedy
spokeswoman Melissa Wagoner.
(Yeah, Kennedy's Actions in that Crime were the
Furthest thing from "Dignified", Melissa, so you go ahead and not Respond to
your Bosses Actions in the Death of another Human Being. After all, he was
given a Life Sentence... In the US Senate! - tha malcontent)
Farrell said the scandal, which polls show could hurt the GOP's bid to hang onto
control, has affected her because her 19-year-old daughter Margaret was a Senate
page when she was 16.
(PAH-LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!... I Hope she was
Outraged when a DemocRAT Actually had SEX with an Underage Page, not just Dirty
IMing... That has led to NO CHARGES as of today... Dishonesty Illustrated. - tha
"My first reaction to this whole scandal had nothing to do with politics," she
said. "It was as a parent who had a child participating in the program."
Shays cited Chappaquiddick in an interview Friday when he was asked about
Farrell's call for him to return money raised by Hastert. The speaker has been
under fire for his handling of disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley's sexually
explicit messages to young pages.
("Young Pages"... Notice the AP is no longer using
"Underage", but they are Keeping the "Scandal" Alive all the same! When this
"Scandal" is not talked about in Mid-November, I will be here to point it out. -
Farrell and other Democrats have called for Hastert to resign.
(Hastert is going to Resign like Tip O'Neil Resigned
when Studds (D) was Converting Underage Male Pages to Homosexuality on the
Taxpayers Dime... Get over it... Hastert's not Resigning. - tha malcontent)
