Save Joseph P. Kennedy III is taking the final steps to launch a run for Congress this year, hoping to succeed US Rep. Barney Frank, who will retire rather than run in his reconfigured district.

Kennedy is forming an exploratory committee for the seat. The 31-year-old today also announced his resignation as a prosecutor in the office of Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone Jr., where he has worked since September. He will leave state employ Jan. 20.

“I am announcing today my intention to explore a candidacy for the United States Congress in the Fourth District of Massachusetts,’’ he said in a statement issued this morning. He said he will decide over the next several weeks whether to formally run for office, after speaking with voters.

The Kennedys: can’t drive, can’t fly, can’t pilot a boat, but THEY know what’s best for us.

No more dynasties. I don’t care whether it’s Kennedy, Clinton or Bush. No more dynasties.

I agree, no more Kennedys, CLintons or Bushes, and I’d add to that Adamses while we’re at it.

We should be grateful that the Democrats didn’t hand Princess Caroline the NY Senate seat on a silver platter.

Anyhow, If JFK had lived he would have eventually just been caught with his pants down instead of achieving sainthood.

Big Daddy Joe Kennedy should be exhumed, slapped and re-buried for starting all this nonsense.

And, don't forget: kissing the asses of America-hating Third World leftist dictators like Hugo Chavez.

I blame Saint Patrick for the Kennedys in America. He drove the snakes out of Ireland.

If he were going to have run, it would have been last time around...with a weak republican.

I am not sure we, in Mass, have had enough of the three initial bastards.

If “he announced his resignation as a prosecutor in the office of Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone Jr., where he has worked since September. He will leave state employ Jan. 20”, will the Dimmies be labeling him a QUITTER???
