    I know it is the National Enquirier but...they have been right before....

    I bet Jesse Jackson is so proud.

    ------
    The National Enquirer splashes this week with a shocking story about Sen. Ted Kennedy’s secret love child with a Cape Cod woman whom the mag says he dated during his days as a swinging single.
    According to the tabloid’s source, the boy, named Christopher, just celebrated his 21st birthday and is “mature enough to make his own choices about his background and biological father.”
    A Kennedy family confidante told the Enquirer, “This is one of the biggest secrets in the Kennedy family and known to only a few people including Ted’s ex-wife, Joan.”
    As for the senator, his spokesgal Melissa Wagoner last night called the tabloid tale “irresponsible fiction.”
    Here’s the story according to the Enquirer: Back in 1983, Kennedy, then 51, took up with Caroline Bilodeau, an attractive brunette, several months before divorcing Joan, the mother of his three kids — Kara, Ted Jr. and Patrick.
    Bilodeau’s friends told the Enquirer the local lass became so smitten with the senator, she “had dreams about being the next Mrs. Ted Kennedy.” But the love affair came crashing down when Bilodeau told Ted a baby was on the way, the mag reports.
    “Caroline announced to the family that she was two months pregnant around May 1984,” blabbed a Bilodeau confidante. “Ted was not happy about the news. He already had three kids with Joan and knew a baby out of wedlock could hurt him politically.”
    According to the Enquirer, the scandal-scarred senator begged Bilodeau to have an abortion, but she refused.
    “He told her he couldn’t undergo another scandal — not after Chappaquiddick, not so close to his divorce from Joan” said the source. “He was very angry when she defied him and had the child.”
    During her pregnancy, Caroline’s friends noticed the unemployed young woman who lived with her parents bought a black Mustang convertible, an expensive Shar-pei puppy and moved into her own apartment.
    “Later we learned she received about $15,000 from someone in the Kennedy camp,” said the friend.
    When Christopher was born in a Cape Cod hospital in December 1984, Kennedy was nowhere near the delivery room. But he did, according to the Enquirer, take a paternity test shortly thereafter to determine if the child was his.
    After Bilodeau got the results, she moved back in with her parents but “always seemed to have money,” said the source.
    Kennedy’s former flame did eventually find love with a man she met in a pizzeria. They married and he legally adopted Christopher and raised him as his own son, sources said.
    “She has always been very protective of Christopher and wanted him to have a normal life, not the life a Kennedy lives,” said the friend.

    The National Enquirer!!??!?!


    And you believe it?????

    You can't mean the magazine that says space aliens went to last years Mardi Gras, Batboy is a secret US government agent, The Olsen twins are actually triplets, and that the US economy is going to crash in six months, every six months. If anything this proves that Ted Kennedy did no such thing.

    The DUmmies and Kos Kidz treated the National Enquirer like the New York Times when it ran a story on Bush getting drunk. :shrug:

    If the story turns out to be true, then the real news will be that Ted Kennedy doesn't have more than one love child.

    I'm surprised that he doesn't have one in every state.

    Shocking! Or not.

    What's there to be outraged about? Is Ted Kennedy some sort of well known prude or moralist or something?

    The outrage is that someone that is supposed to know better is acts like, shall we say... a stud in heat, then goes on to lecture people on their shortcomings. The hypocrisy of this person is incredible and the fact that he is so brazen about it, without any shame at all, is what enrages most people.

    I believe that Ted Kennedy does not hold a candle to his brother John. Although the reputation of the Kennedy licentiousness is known far and wide and is well deserved. The Kennedys have slept with starlets from Gloria Swanson to Darryl Hannah and Marilyn Monroe. Even so, at least John was willing to stand up for America, which is more than I can say for Teddy Kennedy.

    Kennedy is no friend of the right. He's always shooting his mouth off about Bush, Iraq, Social Security, the latest judicial nominee and trying his damnedest to obstruct the conservative agenda. Thanks to him (and Dubya's complicity) we have a very expensive Medicare reform package (a misnomer to say the least) which we can't afford. Although, I have to say, one that you and those of your generation will be paying for till your dying day.

    Kennedy is responsible for the death of Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick island, then there's the famous "waitress sandwich" incident where he and Sen Chris Dodd of Connecticut shared a waitress in a restaurant (and I don't mean split the tip, either).

    To say the guy is a walking hard on, is to be charitable.

    I can't say I'm shocked at this development, only that #1) someone didn't come forward sooner and #2) there aren't more of them

    Please don't tell me you all are taking this seriously. I know that Ted Kennedy has done a lot of dubious things in his life, but this is the National Enquirer, you can't take seriously anything they print. If I saw this on CNN, Time, Fox, MSNBC I'd believe but not from the Enquirer rag.
