London - (Rotters): Senator Ted Kennedy's lifetime of drunkenness, chicanery, priviledge and forked tongue doublespeak has been likened to that of a trickster survivor of The Titanic by one London newspaper commentator.
The senator's Oldsmobile Delmont 88 went down off Chappaquiddick much like the tragic Belfast-built 1912 liner but minus any icebergs.
"That ship was cursed, attracting the wrath of karma in the same way as the Kennedy family," is how one Ted Kennedy humbugwatch source explained.
"He should have gone down after going down because poor Mary Jo never got up again."
The surviving Titanic lifeboat at the London Maritime Museum has now been christened the RMV Barack Obama.
