Spin, Spin, Spin
I continue to get sick, reading the published reports of Caroline Kennedy seeking to be appointed Senator. Man, read this link! You can't make up sh-t like this. The liberal press is swooning at her feet. Just read the articles. You or I couldn't buy this kind of press under any circumstances. Being the daughter of an assassinated president does not qualify her, nor does it make Ms. Kennedy more deserving.
If Caroline Kennedy had campaigned for office and won - more power to her. The people would have spoken. When APPOINTING someone to high ELECTED office it would seem there are far more qualified New Yorkers than Ms. Kennedy.
If the DNC wants to appoint her chairperson because of her fund raising prowess among the New York liberal elite - well, that is their business. Bunch of elitist creeps anyway. Might as well fill the slot another slapped ass rich kid (think Howard Dean).
New York State is in the midst of a financial disaster. Many people in the state are on public assistance, and the local economy is f*&^ing doomed... Yet what the Liberal Elite tell us is that we need another Kennedy in the Senate and that this particular Kennedy is qualified because she sold a couple of books (somehow I don't think her name helped at all in selling those books... do you?).
When I read this stuff, I DESPAIR for my country.
Let us hope Governor Paterson does not continue this legacy of privilege. There is no place for nepotism in a Democracy.
