Just when you thought it was safe to go back to ignoring Ted Kennedy...

Ted Kennedy has, over the course of his grotesque life, has been tainted by nearly every scandal imaginable. Booze, infidelity, lasciviousness, hypocrisy, venality, dishonesty -- the litany is the stuff of legends. But now our own modern Falstaff has finally broken that final barrier:

He's apparently got a "love child" of his very own, too.

Teddy's "youthful indiscretion" apparently happened way back in 1983 or so, while he was still married to his first wife, Joan Kennedy. (You remember Joan -- last Thanksgiving, when families traditionally come together, she was found drunk and passed out on the streets, with a broken shoulder.) Three years after his joke of a run for the presidency, shortly after his 50th birthday, Ted took up with a much-younger Cape Cod woman named Caroline Bilodeau, and the two had a grand old time.

Right up until the rabbit died.

Ms. Bilodeau resisted Teddy's pressure to "get rid of it," the Enquirer reports, and the two eventually parted ways. The Kennedys helped her financially, and she eventually married another man, who adopted young Christopher.

Yeah, I know, it's the Enquirer. But over the last decade or so, that paper has had a track record for accuracy that outshines the New York Times.

Jesus Christ, do you really want Teddah around that long? Kid's like 22, to be in the Senate I believe you have to be 36? No???

I seriously doubt his liver is gonna last that long, or the rest of him for that matter.

It sure would be irony though. It looks like one more reason to label him as the Senate's most dispicable member.

No one is more tired of this bloated tick than we here on Cape Cod. I hope this is true and his son is actually a conservative. That will really frost his martini glass. The Wizard of Uhs has struck again.

Steve Crickmore:

When long ago I worked in the msm media ago, and personally tracked down some of the Enquirer sources I found the National Enguirer surprisingly accurate..After all they are still governed by the same libel laws that everyone else in the print media is . The only area were the stories were legitimately weak was that without giving a date line some of their sensational stories were older than they appeared..
As for Ted Kennedy, his personal life seems to have continually betrayed his publicly stated principles. .Sen. Edward Kennedy, [D-Mass.], in a letter to a constituent, August 3, 1971
"While the deep concern of a woman bearing an unwanted child merits consideration and sympathy, it is my personal feeling that the legalization of abortion on demand is not in accordance with the value which our civilization places on human life. Wanted or unwanted, I believe that human life, even at its earliest stages, has certain rights which must be recognized -- the right to be born, the right to love, the right to grown old"...This does not seem to square with his begging of Bilodeau to have an abortion or does it.. Unfortunately Ted Kennedy's humbug piety and his diametrically opposite reckless personal behavoir makes the Enquirer story all too credible.

Barnstable County records has a deed with trustees Caroline Bilodeau Allen and Donald H Allen. Unfortunately their high-tech system is totally broken and I have no idea what the deed is for.

I figured we would have seen more development on this story, but nothing yet.
