A Kennedy considers running for House seat (Camelot Returns!?)
Boston Globe ^ | 2/27/10 | Frank Phillips and Susan Milligan

Posted on 02/27/2010 4:09:58 AM PST by coaltrain

With speculation mounting that US Representative William D. Delahunt will not seek reelection, Joseph P. Kennedy III, son of the former congressman and great-grandson of the Kennedy family patriarch, is eyeing a run to succeed him in the 10th Congressional District, senior Democratic sources say.

The sources say that Kennedy, a 29-year-old assistant district attorney on the Cape considered by many to be the most promising member of his generation to extend the family’s political legacy, is not close to making any decisions and will not speak publicly until Delahunt announces whether he will seek another term. The discussions are taking place very privately among Kennedy family confidants.

One potential hurdle, however, is the political climate in the state, and especially in that district, which went heavily for Republican Scott Brown in last month’s Senate election.

Now this would really inspire the people of MA, who have long professed a belief in “merit” instead of “heredity”.

Great. Another Kennedy who thinks he should be running things because he’s, well, because he’s a Kennedy. A 29-year-old assistant district attorney? Whose father is in bed with Hugo Chavez? This is the most qualified and experienced they can come up with in the entire Congressional district?

His past MAY BE replete with drugged and raped women... and possibly murder... drunkeness and dui... and a purchased diploma... after all... he is a kennedy!

If he’s 29 now he’d have been around 21 when the planes went into the buildings. It’s odd he didn’t buck up and join the military. It’s something that really surprises me for a guy who apparently is now considering putting himself into a position to vote for other men to be sent into combat.

This guy is hooked up big time with Hugo Chavez and Venezuela's Citgo subsidiary. Better start the foreign sourced campaign contributions audit right now.

He’s probably one of the more handsome members of that family. The jawline is all Kennedy, however. I’m sure that the penchant to spend other people’s money is too.

What's his position on "wind"?

How long is his rap sheet?

Can he swim and tell a credible story? ....

"Joseph P. Kennedy III, son of the former congressman"

That would be son of Joseph P. Kennedy II, who since leaving congress has been working with Hugo Chavez (through a Citgo funded NGO) to bring the benefits and wisdom of socialism to the people of the US?

And nephew of the late Senator from Chappaquiddick whose name appears on KGB archives for secretly volunteering to assist Soviet leaders undermine US efforts to defend against their goal of nuclear world domination?

How far could that apple have fallen from that rotted family tree?

“...extend the legacy...” of flunking the bar, drinking, killing women, covering up for it, using the ambassador’s felon money to get elected so that he can spend our money, spaz at skiing, spaz at flying (and killing more women) ..etc, etc.

Is there any Kennedy that actually has had a real job and created something?

Do Kennedys have the muscle motor control genes?

Do Kennedys have brains?

Actually the Kennedy’s are taught from birth that they have to participate in community relations and give back due to the gifts they have been given. Maybe the younger generation will turn out better than the some of the older ones.

Eunice’s kids. Even Maria had a job before marrying Arnold. Eunice is the only decent member of the original family. Her children have turned out great.

Politics aside, I would tend to agree with that.

I think they are taught from birth that they are superior beings due to their bloodline, that they are supposed to be in charge, and that they are destined to rule over us as our Overlords because they are so much smarter than we are, and know better than we do what is good for us. Apples do not fall far from trees, and what kind of arrogance does it take to be 29 years old, an assistant district attorney, with zero experience, and considering a run for Congress rather than city council or the state legislature?

Yeah, Delahunt will probably retire and Carrot Top will probably run. Had he run in 2008 he would have won handily; he sure picked the wrong year to stop sniffing glue. (Airplane! reference; I’m not implying that Joe XVI sniffs glue.)

"Ginger Kennedy" has withdrawn his name from consideration for a Senate seat.

I guess he had better offers---as a Crest spox and Clairol package model.

Excellent.

As an aside there sure isn’t any doubt about the paternity of any of these Kennedy kids. Except for the goofy red hair the family resemblance in evident in this one.

Too bad Jr. didn’t have any kids so we could see if the Kennedy mouth merely skipped a generation with him.
