  • Did you know that Ted Kennedy created a sandwich?

    Well, him and Sen. Dodd, they created the “Waitress Sandwich “.

    “One night three decades ago, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. D-Mass., and his admiring protege Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, D-Conn., reportedly took their dates to a fancy Washington, D.C., restaurant, La Brasserie. Plenty of alcohol had been consumed.
    When the meal was coming to an end, the two women accompanying the senators repaired to the ladies' room. A waitress, Carla Gaviglio, was summoned to the private dining room by two members of the world's most deliberative body.

    In a lightning strike, Kennedy allegedly picked up Gaviglio and threw her on the table, knocking plates and other items to the floor. He reportedly lifted her up again and put her on top of Dodd, who was seated in a chair. Kennedy then engaged in an attack that continued until another employee entered the room and joined Gaviglio in screaming, causing others to enter the room.
    Oh, those high-spirited U.S. senators. They had gone out on the town in our nation's capital and created a new dish, the waitress sandwich. Why does anyone wonder why the victims of such attacks remain silent for so long? The power is all on one side. Few were inclined 30 years ago to call what happened that night an assault. Certainly no one was going to be punished. Instead, it was given a name to turn it into a joke.

    Kennedy and Dodd would each be elected to four more terms in the Senate. They would be hailed as champions of liberal causes. Kennedy's informal title became Lion of the Senate. After Kennedy's 2009 death, the taxpayers were put on the hook for $32 million (inserted into a defense funding bill) to help fund the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate in Boston. There's a replica of the U.S. Senate chamber, but none of that private La Brasserie dining room.

    Yes, there were always tales, depending on how close the next election was, that Kennedy was much better behaved now. But they probably meant little to Gaviglio. Dodd left the Senate after five terms, too unpopular in Connecticut to seek a sixth. He would find a new career as a lobbyist in show business, another center of the powerful inflicting themselves on the powerless.

    Maybe allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Roy Moore, to name just three whose chilling actions victims have begun to bear witness to, will change the nature of power. It was a hopeful sign when MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski last month expressed support for NBC's decision to boot commentator Mark Halperin from the popular "Morning Joe" political smorgasbord after allegations about his trail of victims became public.

      Odd how Ford's lawyer changes her tune depending on what party the accused belongs to “Paula Jones’ suit is very, very, very weak. She’s alleged one incident that took place in a hotel room that, by her own testimony, lasted 10 to 12 minutes. She suffered no repercussions in the workplace.” If you are a Kennedy or Clinton the left doesn't care how many women you abuse. There is something pathological about socialism that justifies the body count on the road to utopia.

        Paula Jones was a head case. Her father was a Pentecostal Minister. Take a look at any photo of her and realize that Pentecostals do not wear makeup. She came to Slick Willie's attention because she had a reputation for being "friendly". She later posed for Playboy. This is not a normal woman.

          So people raised by Pentecostal ministers deserve to be raped or don’t deserve to be believed?

            What I was saying is she was a collection of contradictions. Most Pentecostals grow up and lead normal lives. Some go a bit crazy. I grew up among Pentecostals. One had guys visit her during lunch at school when she was 12 and 13. They drove their car to a Junior High. This is not normal. How many Pentecostals can you say have posed in Playboy? When was Paula raped? I thought she declined the honor?

              People milking thier fifteen minutes of fame isn’t new and isn’t isolated to any religion as far as I know.
              But then I haven’t paid attention to Playboy magazine since the 1970s.

                  Even the Nazarenes I have met shake their heads over Pentecostals.

                    The “Waitress Sandwich “ was one of many sexual harassment events ignored by the Kennedy worshiping media over the years. Anyone else would have served time in prison for assault and attempted rape. Senator Teddy Kennedy, he proved that he was above the law over and over.

                    This is a must read if you want to know everything about Teddy's life of drug addiction, chasing women, and political power.

                        Hopefully in time statues will be raised in the memory of Mary Jo Kopechne, and schoolchildren will learn her story, because her sacrifice saved the USA from Ted Kennedy as POTUS.

                        Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                            I agree that Jones was not a case that had legal merit but that is not the point. It's about Katz being consistent. Katz also defended Franken.

                            “Context is relevant, he did not do this as a member of the U.S. Senate. He did this in his capacity of someone who was still functioning as an entertainer.”

                              Not likely, with history constantly being edited and redacted by the liberal revisionists.
