Breitbart.com ^ | 26 Dec 10 | Andrew Miga

Posted on 12/26/2010 2:44:21 PM PST by seanmerc

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Kennedys have held congressional seats, the presidency and the public's imagination for more than 60 years.

That era ends when Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island vacates his U.S. House seat next month, leaving a City Council post in California as Camelot's sole remaining political holding.

It might leave a void in the family, but it is a definite improvement for America.

About time we had a Kennedy-free government.

Be nice to have a Rockefeller-free, Coumo-free, Clinton-free government some day.

When the fat drunken blob checked out he never really left a vacancy. Perhaps the other Kennedy’s can see that.

Guess they’ll have to go back to organized crime, like they did before the old man got them into politics.
There’s no Prohibition, but maybe they could go into cocaine smuggling?

Maybe someone will find a brain for that bunch of dopes.

I'm confused! Are you saying that old Joseph got them out of organized crime and put them into organized crime? I must be missing sump'n here!

Kennedy's exit from Congress leaves a family void

The Kennedy family is a void--more like a sink hole. Without a Kennedy in Congress, that void will be filled.

Someone once posted a picture of a large sign in a bar somewhere that said, "NO KENNEDYS" on it.

Wish I could find it now.

It’s not an entitlement or family dynasty. As a
family they have done tremendous damage to
the country. There is no obligation to fill this
“void”. Just go away.

Rumor has it that one of Uncle Teddy’s last wishes was that Caroline get the New York Senate seat vacated by Hillary, so that a Kennedy would continue in the Senate after he was gone.

Uncle Teddy did not get his wish, as Caroline’s listening tour in her efforts to get appointed to that vacancy was such a disaster.

People like the Kennedys do believe that due to wealth and power and lineage and all that, that their family is entitled to things that you and I are not entitled to.

But all is forgiven because the Kennedys are good Democrats. And one Kennedy runs a non-profit organization to help the poor pay for heating oil. Another Kennedy cousin lectures us on global warming.

So, when various Kennedys have accidents in which a girl drowns, or a Kennedy behaves improperly with an under-age babysitter, all is forgiven because they are liberal, good Democrats, and Kennedys.

The same behavior would not be forgiven from a prominent Republican family. I think we all know that.

Reminiscent of an old American saying: "shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations."

IOW if you don't have it in you, you can't borrow it from your ancestors.

There are several Kennedys that hit the trifecta.

Partisan media shill alert -- "his U.S. House seat" is no such thing. Thanks seanmerc. And for that matter, thanks Rhode Island!

Not soon enough.

But it begs the question: How many Republicans from the same family could get automatically elected for 3 generations with a father/grandfather/great grandfather who was a pro Nazi and made his fortune running illegal liquor?

Really? Is there a double standard for our ancestors?

Arnold is still governor of California, at least for a few weeks. And Andrew Cuomo, married to a Kennedy, is the incomming governor of NY. And 50 years of bad legislation from allowing government workers to unionize and the 1965 immigration act are still in effect.

I concur.

Even as an “Irish” American, imo the USA would have been much better off right NOW if Joe Kennedy et. al. had never stained our nation with their FRAUD.

The Kennedys are low born un-American trash imo.

Good riddance to bad TRASH.

Since 1947 a member of the Kennedy family has held some type of federal elected office.

That’s about 63 years too many.

Since at least 90% of the TARP funds actually spent (at least $300 billion were never used) have either been repaid or are expected to be repaid, the DC area bars and liquor stores should be in excellent shape.
