Boston - (RIP Mess): It's been over for nearly 30 years. But as they meet again across a crowded Our Lady of Perpetrator Help Basilica funeral aisle today Joan Kennedy and Bill Clinton will know their torrid five year fling eventually led to the downfall of US President Nixon.
Ted Kennedy's first wife, co-dependent, alibi and 12-Step recovery dodger Joan had a drunken, madcap tryst with fledgeling comeback kid Bill Clinton monitored by the CIA on Nixon's orders.
Secret Service agents discovered the seedy affair during the 1972 McGovern White House campaign when Clinton ran the Dems' Texan operations from a Lemmon Laws Avenue HQ in Dallas.
GOP presidential candidate Nixon was convinced the Kennedys were about to expose his campaign's sordid personal spying network and ruin yet another promising White House bid, last scuppered by John F Kennedy in 1960.
But what the Security Service stumbled on shocked the GOP and the Democrats to the very core of their roots.
Joan Kennedy was a CIA/KGB double agent who recruited Clinton in a series of turgid honeytrap maneuvers.
Her puppetmaster was Jackie Kennedy's brother-in-law the Lithuanian/Polish Prince Stanislaw Radziwil, sometime husband to Caroline Lee Bouvier Canfield, and bagman fot the Vatican's notorious P2 Lodge global fraud ring.
One drunken weekend the Joan and Bill roadshow resulted in a pregnancy that Clinton hastily 'took care of' in a very hush-hush surgical intervention.
"The rest is all hysterectomy, as they say in the business!" operating gynacologist/obstetrician Dr V Smartt commented today.
Chelsea Clinton is pure mythology.
