Camelot Returns

All this flap about Caroline Kennedy being qualified and leap-frogging over others and all that other malarkey--I say forgeddaboudit.
Caroline is not just a Kennedy, she's THE remaining Kennedy from the White House Camelot Days.
Should a non politician be considered for a vacated Senate seat?
Well, why not?
As long as Sonny Bono and his fitness trainer widow could clutter the halls of Congress, are you telling me Caroline Kennedy has to first pass some kind of wacky sniff test?
She's Caroline Kennedy, she smells like GOLD, all right?
If I were a New Yorker I'd be sending the governor money to ensure CK gets that job.
I mean, come on, if The Caroline Kennedy appeared at your office wanting something, what would you say, no?
It's her time.
it's her legacy.
Put her in the Senate and let's be done with it.

Sorry, I was distracted when I envisioned Caroline Kennedy at my door wanting something... did you say something?

I give her anything she asks for. But that's mostly because I am in love with her.

Lulu Maude said...

It's only right to see what she stands for, what her motivations are.

I'm not celebrity struck. Her positions sound good, those that I've heard of, but I'd like to know more.

Nepotistic dynasties are, how do I put this? UnAmerican. Yes, she ought to be qualified by some other measure than her last name.

kzip said...

Hell, I love a good dynasty, and I say her last name qualifies her to do any fucking thing she wants.

Perhaps Caroline would be more "qualified" if she was an alcoholic, screwed up every business she ever owned, got through the best schools on her daddy's name, even though her grades were less than passing, and was allowed to evade being sent into battle, she could go ahead and run for President.

I don't like Bush either, so you are backing my point. We do better with people qualified for office, or at least people interested enough in politics to fight for a seat rather than have it bestowed on them. She doesn't even vote consistently:

And that's not because she couldn't get her shift changed at the Cracker Barrel. She just didn't care.

At any rate, this isn't my problem. I'm not from New York, nor do I ever plan on living there.

Mommy said...

What got me were the people who say she is not qualified because she has never had to work a day in her life. That means she has no sense of right or wrong? Why? AND do we want a politician who could not be bribed or the Govenor of Illinois?

Dusty said...

since she will be a senator from NY this doesn't affect me one frankly m'dear..I don't give a damn.

Is that bad of me? ;p
