#rsrh Was the INTENT here to accuse JFK of being a sociopath?

Note that I’m using that term colloquially, not offering a clinical diagnosis.  But this is an incredibly unappealing portrayal of John F Kennedy: it relates the story of an ‘affair’ between a barely-legal White House press officer and a manipulative, domineering, insensitive, distant, and frankly cruel scumbag with Daddy issues and a profound inability to keep it in his pants.  If if is also a true account, then there are a number of former Washington press journalists that need to make public atonement for their part in covering it up at the time.

And when I say ‘atonement’ I mean ‘sackcloth and ashes.’  Also, I am not actually using figurative language.

PS: I hope to God that it isn’t a true account, by the way.  On general ethical principles.

    Political sniping being what it is, I have no idea whatever if it’s true or not, but new? I don’t think so. It was pervasive enough that I heard it contemporaneously, and considering that I was 13 at the time…

    “The evil tht men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones. So let it be with JFK.”

    As a former figurehead, given the jump to the left the Dems have taken, JFK is no longer useful … so now they can stop lying.


    p.s. Anyone know if the Dems have brought their knees in tight? …

  • Shel says:

    No, acat, I don’t know where their knees are, but I’m guessing this will be first November in a long time when they can’t take a last minute step to the right. (They’ve burnt so many bridges that might be getting hard.)
    If the polls and trends hold, they might be grabbing their knees for the next move in the dance…
