CALLER: I've been sitting here, I thought of another great story that you told about back in the old days when people could say stuff on the floor of the Senate that they don't say now. You were talking about some southern Democrat that was talking about Ted Kennedy doing offshore drilling.
RUSH: Oh, yeah. Well, that was Howell Heflin.
CALLER: Okay. But that story that you told, I'll tell you what, I couldn't stop laughing.
RUSH: You want to hear the story again before Womb to the Tomb?
CALLER: Oh, yes.
RUSH: The thing is, this is a true story.
RUSH: What happened was -- this is back in the late eighties, I think -- Senator Kennedy is vacationing off the coast of the south of France and he's got a young nubile, very limber and flexible young woman with him, scantily clad in a nice bikini. We know this because paparazzi were taking pictures from neighboring boats, and the New York Daily News published the pictures, and there were a series of four pictures. The first picture shows them cavorting out there on the boat. The second picture shows us the scantily clad, nubile, very flexible and limber young woman diving in the water off the edge of the boat. The next picture showed Senator Kennedy jumping in after her -- which was a first for Senator Kennedy to go in the water after a woman -- and then the last picture showed them back in the boat making... uh, "having intimacies," let's say. The pictures made the rounds, and they showed them to Howell Heflin, a Senator from Alabama. He was a huge guy, and he looked at the picture and said (rare Howell Heflin impression), "Well, I do declare! Ha! Why, it do look to me like Senator Kennedy done changed his position on offshore drilling."
....then there is the waitress sandwich stories I think with Dodd
OH. MY. GOSH.
“which was a first for Senator Kennedy to go in the water after a woman . . . “
LOL . . .classic.
I have a feeling (and no, it isn't gas) Unca Teddy will be exempt...
Kennedy dumping diesel fuel into Nantucket Sound
He asked the crewman "what the hell are you doing?"
When told that he was moored in coastal waters near shellfish beds and people swimming, the man replied, "whatever."
My wife's liberal relatives were busting me for listening to him. I told them what you are really missing is the comedy.
I then repeated Rush's imitation of the Senator and the story and they busted a gut laughing :-).....
Love the part too where Rush says Kennedy dived into the water after the woman... “Which was a first, by the way.” LOL.
This story STILL makes my side hurt from laughing..
Oh my gosh, I remember there were actual T-shirts of that picture of Kennedy “offshore drilling.” That was the funniest thing. Someone must have that photo SOMEWHERE.
Did Rush say this again today? I didn’t listen because I thought he was on vacation. I’d heard his impression before and it is hilarious.
No, it didn’t happen today. It came to mind because of the current controversy of offshore drilling.
That would be darn credible if it were not said by a radio actor.
