Publisher to Pay Ted Kennedy 235,294 Bottles of Chivas for Memoirs

Twelve, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing, has purchased the worldwide rights to Ted Kennedy’s memoirs for $8 million. That equals 235,294 bottles of Chivas Regal Deluxe Blend, or 44,444 bottles of Chivas Regal Royal Salute. Obviously the senator is quite excited.

It’s the highest amount paid to a politician for a memoir since Dan Rostenkowski got 22,727 postage stamps for his book, “Pardon me, Mr. President,” which will be released just as soon as the content is transcribed from the wall of his old cell.
