Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

The Department of History Repeating Itself chimes in today with this story about Teddy the Red-Nosed Senator™ once again near a body of water with people’s lives on the line – and once again he turned his back on them.

Fortunately, however, this  time no one died.

The Cape Cod Times reports the Massachusetts Democrat was walking his two Portuguese waterdogs on the shore at about 11:15 a.m. when he spotted the men cut off from the shore by rising waters.

Hyannis Fire Capt. Craig Farrenkopf told the paper Kennedy and a friend tried to retrieve the men in a 13-foot Whaler before they were forced back by rough waters.

One presumes that it wasn’t King Chappaquiddick’s attorney this  time.

Shortly after the attempt, a crew from the fire department was able to pick up the men in their 20s in three trips and bring them back to shore. They were transported to Cape Cod Hospital with mild hypothermia.

They were fortunate.  Some who have depended on the Fat-Assed Fop™ to save them from raging bodies of water found themselves dead shortly thereafter.

The six had been fishing at the end of the jetty, where uneven rocks make walking difficult when tides rise. The Times reports heavy winds topped 35 miles per hour, making harbor waters choppy.

Farrenkopf said Sen. Kennedy waited on shore as the rescues took place.

Probably because he didn’t have the cover of night this time like he did back in 1969.
