I am JFK's love child, B.C. man says [Canada]
Toronto Globe and Mail ^ | 2/11/8

Posted on 02/11/2008 3:56:17 AM PST by NativeNewYorker

The man who American journalists are investigating as the possible illegitimate son of John F. Kennedy lives in British Columbia and bears a striking resemblance to the 35th president of the United States.

So much so, that people will sometimes stop him on the street.

"Not in a funny way, but in a scary way," the man named Jack said during a meeting Saturday morning.

Jack, who has asked that his full identity not be revealed at this time, approached The Globe and Mail on Friday after the newspaper ran an article about the possible existence of a John F. Kennedy love child living in Vancouver. Wary that he would become the subject of a media hunt to discover his identity, he said he chose to come forward.

No doubt he’ll be announcing his intention to run for office soon.

" The Post said Vanity Fair had decided not to publish the story after contacting the office of Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy"

Ain't that a surprise?

It would have been nice to actually see a picture of the guy. Guess that would be too much to hope for from the MSM.

"Vanity Fair needs help. We need JFK DNA and, barring that, DNA from any male Kennedy directly related to Joe Kennedy [JFK's father], either in the U.S. or Ireland [for a Y chromosome analysis]," Jack read from a prepared statement on Friday.

Hahaha, good luck with that. Unless he can get to the next car accident scene or plane wreck...

Jack said he did not cast a ballot in the recent Super Tuesday primaries, adding that he is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. "I couldn't imagine my mind being hijacked by dogma like that," he said.

So, he's a Democrat. ;)

This fellow is on the level, I think...

~snip~
“I told Vanity Fair that I would sign an agreement with the Kennedys immediately, in which I agree not to pursue any financial remuneration from the JFK estate whatsoever.”

So is he coming forward? Or did Vanity Fair find him? He would not say. But he hinted there is a more to the situation than tawdry details.

“This isn’t a story about the fairly silly, trivial ‘discovery of JFK’s illegitimate son,’ “ he stated on Friday, “although it appears that way.” He said the information he will reveal could have a “potentially profound impact.”

LOL...I have to admit I scanned the article but only because I was looking for a picture. I mean, come on, they write a story about a guy that looks like JFK and then don't let us see for ourselves.

The Global and Mail is about as mainstream as Canadian media get. (I spent six months in Ontario one night.)

I actually like the Globe and Mail. They tend to support the establishment view, ( Capital Punishment, no, Nationalized Health Care, yes, yada, yada, yada) but their tone is distinctly more adult and their outlook much broader than just about any American outlet. The Boston Globe and New York Times in particular.

I can’t read the New York Times or Boston Globe, not on mere ideological grounds, but on the ground of intellectual coherence and a somewhat pedantic and exceeding boring literary style. The G&M otoh is almost always delightful, even though I rarely find myself in agreement with their views.

The NYT and BG deserve to go out of business, they provide overpriced shoddy goods.

Easy, they can get Kennedy DNA off of any of Teddy’s booze glasses,.... or bottles. Or, maybe off one of the cars he wrecks. Come to think of it, his son Patrick would be good for that.

I'm a little confused. Is Canada a state or is it a possession like Puerto Rico? How many votes do they have in the electoral college?

I can see the use of the euphemism because it’s certainly not the child’s fault. But this guy isn’t a child any more, JFK was a horndog, and I’d be willing to bet the family’s been paying this guy and/or his mother to keep thimgs quiet. So as far as I can see, no need for anyone to try to gussy up the situation.

He'd have to catch the bottle before it - hic - is tossed out the window and into the drink. Probably best to stake out Patches' latest rehab locale.

Nah, skip the DNA tests. Does this love child have a history of womanizing, drunkenness, and vehicular mishaps? When was the last time he skied into a tree? A simple questionnaire will resolve this issue in short order.

Arrogant elitist. Translation: "I couldn't imagine focusing my brain long enough to perceive any transcendent principles of right and wrong, good and bad, better and worse.

If he can prove it with DNA any office in Massachusetts not currently held by a Kennedy relative is probably open to him. Those people are real Royalists up there. Birth and rightfulness counts for everything. As Democrats in general tend to that royalist bent the Clintons have taken that position in the general party. Unlucky for them they are just getting going when the Messiah comes along calling for Change!

Exactly, you don’t hear Republicans making that claim of being “open minded” about Democrats that are running.

These crossover Democrats vote Republican in the primary but Democrat in the general election even when their guy GETS the Republican nomination.
