Skip to comments.The Kennedy Scenario (Move to Appoint Bobby, Jr. to Hillary's Senate Seat)

This picture could have been worth a million words, and raised an interesting question.
There was Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the environmental activist, standing in front of the bridge that was being re-dedicated in his father's name. Behind him sat Michael Bloomberg, David Paterson, Bill Clinton and a regiment of Kennedy kin. From the front page of Thursday's New York Times, Bobby Jr. gestured during a speech in which officials rededicated the Triborough Bridge in memory of Robert F. Kennedy, Sr., the former attorney general and New York senator who was assassinated four decades ago.
The rhetoric echoed the spirit of his father, and raised the question: When Hillary Clinton resigns to become secretary of state, why not appoint Kennedy to his father's old senate seat?
"It follows some obviously very favorable and nostalgic publicity the other day," said Assemblyman Jack McEneny, an Albany Democrat and historian. "I think it would be something that a lot of people would be very pleased with. He's really distinguished himself in the field of the environment, and he's really been very youth-oriented at the law school at Pace."
An attorney, Bobby currently serves as chief prosecuting attorney for Riverkeeper and is active with the National Resources Defense Council. He is known and popular in the Hudson Valley, which means he could bring some regional balance to a cadre of New York Democratic leaders cluster in the five boroughs. And, as McEneny points out, his appointment would have that certain nostalgic appeal.

On the bright side, Little Booby has the same magical last name as Uncle Teddie, is as much of an environmental guru as AlGore, is as qualified as Hillary was when she climbed on the throne, has at least 50 IQ points on Cousin Caroline, and has been off heroin for the last couple of decades.
Whatever happened to RFK Jr.’s 1983 bust for heroin?
Oh why not, the Commies have seized control of our Government, how can RFK Jr do any more damage? Our Constitution and Republic are already bent over for the Democrat (i.e. Communist) equivalent of the infamous Carlin ‘Mongolian Cluster F*k’, one more mindless Commie stooge isn’t going to make much difference.
Listening to this guy talk will drive everyone crazy...
From White House to Crack House.
Let's see how much attention is given his heroin conviction.
A new posterboy for Upstate statehood.
“Whatever happened to RFK Jr.s 1983 bust for heroin?”
We just elected a president who has admitted to past use of cocaine. In his inexperience, contempt of country, prior felonious use of illegal drugs, flagrant unwillingness to provide credible proof he is constitutionally qualified for office and most liberal voting record ever held by a major party candidate, Obama has established a new, breathtakingly low bar for becoming president of the United States. Apparently, this is the change he and the lemmings behind him believe in. If we’re lucky, the Supreme Court will put an end to this charade in December.
How about a photo of Bobby standing on the bridge that made his uncle more famous?
Yes the environmentally concious Kennedys who want things to be put in to help the environment as long as it’s not in their backyard.
He appeared on Jeopardy! a number of years ago and seemed to be rather culturally illiterate.
Fox just interviewed someone who says Caroline Kennedy may be appointed by the NY governor to complete Hillary’s senatae term if she becomes SoS.
What qualification does she have?
She’s a Kennedy. Will that do? (sarc)
What qualification does Barry have? At least Caroline had experience in the Oval Office playing under her Daddy's desk when Barry was pooping in his diapers.
He is a textbook example of a monomaniacal demagogue.
After the 2004 election Rolling Stone published an article by him, detailing how Ohio had been stolen by Republican election fraud. He cited numerous “facts” to prove his case. A normal reader could easily have been convinced.
A short time afterward, someone who was knowledgeable about Ohio and Ohio election law wrote an article; which was published by a liberal leaning (I think slate or salon)magazine, which debunked and refuted every single “fact” Kennedy used in his article.
Some of what Kennedy wrote could have been mistakes born out of ignorance; but a number of them were clearly, unequivocally,conscious lies, that Kennedy must have known were falsehoods.
By no stretch of the imagination is he a liberal. He is a Stalinist and would have absolutely no qualms about stuffing enemies of environmental progress into boxcars for transport to reeducation camps.
