The name vaguely rings a bell.
Do you mean the MTV girl from the 90s?
No, I think they were a ‘dream’ family conjured up by the liberal media of the 60s and carried on until the murderer Teddy croaked. Kinda like the “Dallas” fiasco....
Like the Brady Bunch and Robert Reed?
Kinda like the Dallas fiasco....
Where Bobby turned out not to be dead after all? Just a bad dream?
Wow. That is a brutal riposte! And I’d bet my life that KKT did not write it. Probably a team of vicious Dem speechwriters got together on it (with Tokyo Rove sitting in).
Or Kennedy the Republican MTV VJ.
Are those the same Kennedy’s with the adulterers, murderer and the rapist in the family and the guy who loves Hugo Chavez?
Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last!
Look, enough of saying bad things about the Kennedy’s like the father was an Anti-Semite and booze runner; the son stole a national election; they can’t drive over bridges very well; Teddy’s middle name was Chivas; rapes aren’t rapes in Palm Beach; sure they don’t know how to fly; yes they kill women in the ocean; sure they f**** Marilyn Monroe and had her killed; sure they’re lousy skiers!! You know all those nasty untruths people say about them!
She was so frickin hot
What hyperbolic feigned outrage on a rather tenuous stretch of an interpretation of Sarah Palin’s meaning.
Quick kick it back in the water
These people must have a different constitution than the one signed by the founders.
They see all kinds of things in theirs that I can’t find in my copy.
The Democratic Party is now a creature of the Left, which means that considerations of truth are set aside in favor of political expediency. Since the day Palin emerged on the national scene, the Dems have tried to portray her religious beliefs as extreme and un-American. They have tried to associate her with Holy Rollers and snake handlers and Aryan Nations-types. And this will not stop as 2012 draws nearer.
“Faith runs as a deep current through my family,’’ she writes. “Faith inspired my uncles’ and my father’s dedication to justice.”
Like justice for Mary Jo? How about the justice the Kennedys delivered to Ngo Dinh Diem, the Catholic premier of South Vietnam in whose brutal assassination the Kennedy brothers acquiesced?
Faith runs as a deep current through her family. A little too deep. In fact it runs so deep as to be invisible.
Which is exactly the point Palin was making and which this member of the lucky sperm club of Hyannis Port failed to grasp.
Do any have real jobs yet?
Are there any out of jail?
This woman is so full of it: She writes
“No nation on Earth had ever framed in law that faith should be of no interest to government officials.”
Well, no nation except Nazi Germany (which my Grandfather really liked) and Soviet Russia (which Uncle Ted and my dad tried to help at every turn.
Sheesh. This woman is so thick. Debating her would be fun, but not much sport. Anyone with an IQ of 95 would decimate her. Maybe this is why the Gipper had such an easy time throttling her dad back in 1967.
Sarah Palin doesn't 'sit in judgment' of anyone's faith, as Townsend states. That is just Townsend's guilt talking. She knows full well that the Kennedy family's adherence to their professed (Catholic) faith was mostly a sham and had no real impact on their political stands, much less, their 'private' life, except when it was convenient. So, Townsend tries to pretend that Sarah Palin postulating that a politician should embrace their faith and not distance their political positions from it somehow equates to 'judging' others religious beliefs. That is nonsense writ large but considering the source and the Kennedy family history e.g. Teddy/JFK philandering, no one should be surprised.
Besides, these days, leftists get a few brownie points for bashing Sarah Palin about anything at all. Truth is distinctly optional, as it always is with liberals. Fortunately, the ersatz Kennedy 'dynasty' has finally, mercifully passed and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend's opinion about Sarah Palin's comments in her best-selling book regarding politicians and religion are mostly irrelevant to the average American.
During the Super Bowl in 2001 -- Maryland Lt. Governor and member of the Kennedy family - Kathleen Kennedy Townsend -- was being interviewed about the game which included her state's team the Baltimore Ravens. She was asked what her favorite play of the game was. She responded, "my favorite part was when the other team scored a football and then we came right back on the next play and scored a football too."
Who are the Kennedys?
Are there any left? If so, what's keeping them?
Notice the source? Only the New England media continues to prop up the irrelevant Kennedy crime syndicate...the rest of America has moved on.
ROTFLMAO here in New England...
Wow. Thanks for posting that link. Being the Great Communicator began with having great ideas built on a rock-solid foundation.
Awwwww, did the blue-blood Kennedy’s get their little feelings hurt by a little truth?
Well, I can’t be bothered to read the article, but I have almost finished Sarah’s book.
What she says is that in America there is freedom of religion, but that in recent years the liberals have been demonizing religion and demanding that it be removed from politics. Unless, of course, it is brought in for leftist purposes.
She cites JFK’s meeting with the Protestant ministers, when JFK promised that his Catholic faith would have absolutely no effect on his political decisions. None. And as it turns out, he happily kept that promise.
What she says, correctly, is that was a pretty sick thing to do. (My words, not hers.) Kennedy began the popular liberal meme that religion is a private matter—unless, of course, it is used by someone like Martin Luther King who is doing something about which the liberals approve. (And I would note that King has been kind of relegated to the background in recent years, has become a name that is often evoked but never described in much detail. Because he was religious. And because his daughters are pro-life.
Instead of seeking to “run away from religion,” Palin asserts, Kennedy should have embraced his Catholicism. And the electorate, she extrapolates, should embrace leaders who interweave their faith into their decision-making.
“Not only does she want people to reveal their beliefs, but she wants to sit in judgment of them if their views don’t match her own. Who anointed her our grand inquisitor?”
It seems to me that Kathleen Kennedy Townsend is reaching quit far to make such an assertion.
Lemme guess, they all vomited up their scotch in unison.
Palin contends that Kennedy sought to "run away from religion." The truth is that my uncle knew quite well that what made America so special was its revolutionary assertion of freedom of religion.
Palin's book makes clear just how dangerous her proposed path can be. Not only does she want people to reveal their beliefs, but she wants to sit in judgment of them if their views don't match her own. For instance, she criticizes Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), a Democrat and a faithful Catholic, for "talking the (God) talk but not walking the walk."
Who is Palin to say what God's "walk" is? Who anointed her our grand inquisitor?
(My guess, abortion-loving Pelosi and the Kennedy's don't 'walk with God).
Kathleen needs to spend her energy baking cookies for her murderer uncle who is in prison. He is her mother’s brother. What a dysfunctional family.
Michael Skakel = Kathleen’s cousin
The Kennedy’s seem to get dumber with every generation. It’s quite an American accomplishment that not one will sit in the new congress.
You’re a joke. We made it clear that we don’t want you in Maryland. Now get out of my country too.
ROFL. But must they die “politely”?
Those people are poison. It’s a shame they still have their ill-gotten money. I think they deserve to live poor. God knows they’ve used to the poor to build their political careers.
True and I don’t believe any of them have any morals other than themselves and ‘planet earth’ all the while trying pass themselves off as Catholic. They make me sick.
...no nation except Nazi Germany (which my Grandfather really liked) and Soviet Russia
Hell ya talking about?
Nazi and Soviet Government Officials were real interested in people of faith. They sought them out, and then they killed them.
