I just saw a documentary on TV and he was killed because of right wing haters - so how would you consider him a Republican? Are you saying the right wing eats it's own? I'd doubt he was really a Republican since this documentary claims he was killed by the Tea Party of that day.

AP and UPI was how we got the news in those days. Not a tweet or anything online. And it meant there was a bulletin of some kind. And I went over and Merriman Smith - who really became legendary for dictating on the run, the UPI reporter – had dictated that shots were fired at the presidential motorcade, the president perhaps fatally wounded. That was the first thing that we saw. And then of course it rolled out there in Parkland and then the announcement of his death.

We didn't have the network up at KMTV because NBC would give back a local station one hour of midday programming. I ran down, there was a garden show on the air. So I put it on over the garden show and then did that a couple of times. And this was unusual but it was not unheard of. As I came running out of the announce booth the chief engineer - with whom I didn't get along very well. A really curmudgeonly guy, old, kind of a gnarly guy – and he said,“What happened?” And I said,“Kennedy was shot.” And he said ,“About time somebody shot that S.O.B.” That was heard in other places, mostly in the conservative states. But he was, that was reflecting his real feeling, and they had to peel me away from him. I then ran back up and continued to work.

I don't know about his politics but he sure humped a lot of women. He bedded a mafia boss' girlfriend as well as dozens of other hot broads. He used to cavort in the nude on weekends.
