Can’t be any less qualified than, say, Al Franken.
I thought the Senate was the careful, thoughtful, deliberative chamber.
As a nation we have become a caricature. Sad.
He is definitely Robert’s son and a Kennedy. One could easily pick him out in a line-up.
He's a Kennedy - eventually, you'll get to, if he doesn't off himself in some senseless way first.
The Kennedy epidemic continues to spread, with new cases being reported as far west as Illinois.
I hope he’s the nominee. Republican chances of winning will be boosted.
But, but, but...what about Mr. Burris??? How can a rich white guy come in and take away a ‘black’ Senate seat??? Does Kennedy royalty trump racial quotas???
Leave it to a mom to ask the ‘tough’ questions.
Carpetbaggers.. Kennedys and Clintons.
Northeastern liberals have infested almost every state in the union. Yesterday, California voters tried to reject what they sow.
New York didn’t heed the warnings, will you Illinois?
He looks like he could be Nigel Incubator Jones - Upper Class Twit of The Year.
Personally, there are a few more surnames I would add (including Bush)!
We are just a few elections away from selecting all of our "leaders" in "American Idol" fashion! Deliver free beer and snacks to registered homes with the proviso that, if you don't "watch the show" and vote..., the beer and snacks will be added to your IRS tab!
Can we go for any time without this cancer on the body politic infesting the senate in some way.
PLEASE...Your family has done enough to..err..for this country.
Oh God, not another KENNEDY!!! Edward Munch
wow he really looks like his dad a lot. i will say this.. at least he has some experience running a business, and probably has more knowledge of politics than an ordinary joe off the street. it could also be a plus that he does not seem to associate with blago. still, another kennedy, feh.
Please, Illinois voters, spare us this extension of the Kennedy plague. But based upon what Illinois has been sending to the Senate in recent years, I’m not too hopeful.
Not another one! May the curse end!
