Portraits in Crassness

When is a revelation not really a revelation?

When it's about the lack of class that was the hallmark of the late-U.S. Sen. Teddy Kennedy (D-Mass.) and his trusty sidekick, Chris Dodd (D-Conn.). Their boorishness was the stuff of legends.

Kennedy and Dodd, who gained a bit of notoriety for their infamous "Waitress Sandwich" (aka: alleged sexual assault), have a new story being told about their sex prowls. This time, it comes from actress/author Carrie Fisher.

In today's edition of The Hill, piece notes Fisher's claims that Kennedy asked her some pretty frank questions while dining out with the star and Dodd:

According to published excerpts from Fisher’s new book, “Shockaholic,” the entertainer, best known for her role as Princess Leia, was fresh out of her first stint in rehab and on a date with a then single Dodd back in 1985. Kennedy joined the pair at dinner in D.C..

Fisher writes, “Suddenly, Senator Kennedy, seated directly across from me, looked at me with his alert, aristocratic eyes and asked me a most surprising question. 'So,' he said, clearly amused, 'do you think you’ll be having sex with Chris at the end of your date?’”

The celeb adds, “Chris Dodd looked at me with an unusual grin hanging on his very flushed face.”

While Fisher writes that she calmly quipped to Kennedy, “Funnily enough, I won’t be having sex with Chris tonight…No that probably won’t happen…Thanks for asking, though,” the author claims that the rather candid line of questioning didn’t end there.

Fisher continues in her latest tome: “’Would you have sex with Chris in a hot tub?' Senator Kennedy asked me, perhaps as a way to say good night?”

“’I'm no good in water,’ I told him.”

I guess we shouldn't be surprised when pigs act like pigs...

Carrie Fisher and...Ted Kennedy?
