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.

About time. Since I was in 4th grade it has been JFK and their clan in office.
The Dead Kennedys Rock
Void?? More like empty seat on the short bus.
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.
The entire family is a void...
Agreed - maybe we can get Jello Biafra to write another anti Governor Brown song?
Why do I have this rather melancholy feeling that a big weight has been lifted from the American peoples shoulders?
The Kennedy’s haven’t a spawn left that isn’t a moron or a drug addled idiot.
When the fat drunken blob checked out he never really left a vacancy. Perhaps the other Kennedy’s can see that.
Are you ready munchkins? Ding Dong........etc.
Pay back is as bitch, hah Joe? You never were able to keep it in the family.
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?
That nose looks like a baseball trapped in the toe of a red Christmas stocking.
“Kennedy plans to continue the tradition by championing a national effort to boost brain research. “
Maybe someone will find a brain for that bunch of dopes.
Who keeps the whiskey now?
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!
Good riddance to bad trash...Stevie666
Kennedys are the kudzu of politics. But...at least kudzu plants aren’t all drunks.
The Kennedy family is a void--more like a sink hole. Without a Kennedy in Congress, that void will be filled.
Will there be TARP funds available for DC area bars and liquor stores?
Wish I could find it now.
Who gives a rats a$$?
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.
I can’t keep these Kennedy’s straight!
Is this one the drug addict, the rapist, or the socialist?
Oh how great thou art America had Old Man Kennedy been sterile
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.
IOW if you don't have it in you, you can't borrow it from your ancestors.
Is this one the drug addict, the rapist, or the socialist?
There are several Kennedys that hit the trifecta.
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.Partisan media shill alert -- "his U.S. House seat" is no such thing. Thanks seanmerc. And for that matter, thanks Rhode Island!
Hooray! A Kennedy free congress .... For now. The forth generation of Joe Kennedy’ s great grandchildren are ready to go.
Next goal - An Obama . free Washington.
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?
Dead democrats, Can’t bury just one.
Or maybe get into oil with Colombia’s neighbor,Venezuela as a cover—there is one global warming kennedy left in that biz.
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 think I have a grain of sand around here somewhere that might fill that void. Feel free to use only half of it if necessary.
putrid is more like it.
Door. Butt. Out.
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.
Maria Shriver might as well be co-Governer. She’ll be gone soon too.
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.
