Patrick Kennedys unexpected decision not to seek reelection to the US House prompted widespread reflection yesterday on how swiftly the political climate had changed, from the adulation for Edward M. Kennedy after his death to the voter fatigue that has helped end the familys decades in power.
With Patrick Kennedy bowing out amid dismal poll numbers, some read the shift as a measure of the declining political cachet of the family name. Others say it goes deeper, reflecting the fading popularity of the activist federal government the Kennedy family has long championed.

There's always janitorial services.
Perhaps some of the Kennedys are actually going to work for their salary.
Although I suppose you could just follow the trail of carnage he leaves with his car...
The congressional IQ (as low as it is) went up a smidgeon after the death of the felon.
Of course, religious folks can always use the Kennedy family as proof that evolution does not always work.
We’ll quickly get over it. We got over “a congress without” a Lodge, a Saltonstall, etc. Hopefully soon we’ll have a “congress without” a Byrd and a Rockefeller.
Pondering a crime scene without criminals.
“Pondering a Congress without Kennedys”
Pondering a garbage can without stinking used diapers.
In honor of the occassions lets PARTY.
Pondering a news cycle without Kennedys, and cycle after cyle with never a mention of Kennedys.
A better world for all.
Maybe people are just wising up to the Kennedy’s unearned sense of entitlement. Patrick, a drug addled moron, is entitled to a House seat because he is a Kennedy. Caroline, an incomprehensible nitwit, should get a Senate seat because she is a Kennedy.
Yecchh! These Kennedys make me vomit!
It will be safer to drive around the Capitol at night.
Did someone say ... WORK?!!
Cwe then have a sign put on the capitol building that says:
“Entering a Kennedy-free Zone”
Sorry typing too fast previously.
Can we then have a sign put on the capitol building that says:
Entering a Kennedy-free Zone
“Pondering a Congress without Kennedys...” suffocating liberty.
I feel more optimistic already. I hope they don’t let the door hit them in the backside, or maybe it should.
