Q. What do 15,000 bottles of scotch and Mary Jo Kopechne have in common?
A. All were killed by Ted Kennedy.

Roto-Reuters News Service. U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy, a towering figure in the Democratic Party who took the helm of one of America's most fabled political families after two older brothers were assassinated, died at age 77, his family said.

One of the most influential and longest-serving senators in U.S. history -- a liberal standard-bearer who was also known as a consummate congressional dealmaker -- Kennedy had been battling brain cancer, which was diagnosed in May 2008.

Q. What is the difference between Ted Kennedy and Pamela Anderson?
A. Pamela had life guard training.

After his brother Robert Kennedy's death, Edward was expected to waste little time in vying for the presidency. But in 1969, a young woman, Mary Jo Kopechne drowned after a car Kennedy was driving plunged off a bridge on the Massachusetts resort island of Chappaquiddick after a night of partying.

Kennedy's image took a major hit after it emerged he had failed to report the accident to authorities. He pleaded guilty to leaving the scene and received a suspended sentence.

After the Mary Jo Kopechne incident, had Teddy been black or Mexican, he would've died behind bars.
