Deep waters

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jan 08, 2005

A tip of the hat to the Washington Times, for noticing the irony (scroll down to the bottom of the column) when Sen. Ted Kennedy berated attorney-general-designate Alberto Gonzales.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Chappaqquidick? Yes. But is also carries the smell of the Salem witch trials. In order to determine if a person accused of witch craft was guilty, they tied them up and threw them in the water. If they floated, they were guilty and were burned at the stake. If they drowned they were innocent. How's that for a Catch-22?

    Mr. Kennedy knows a thing or two about drowning, unfortunately for Mary Jo.

    Caught the irony. Bet Kennedy never will.
