It's been a busy month for Joseph Kennedy III.
The son of former U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II and grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy is engaged to be married to Lauren Anne Birchfield, a fellow Harvard Law School graduate.
The announcement comes a little more than a week after the 31-year-old Kennedy formed an exploratory committee as a first step toward a run for the U.S. House seat held by retiring Rep. Barney Frank.

Pass that to Joe 3’s mummy Sheila Rauch Kennedy
When Joe 2 knocked up his secretary and wanted an “annulment” so he could marry again and remain an unfaithful catholic, she refused to cooperate, took on the Kennedys and the Catholic church, and won
Good girls always seem attracted to bad boys.
That family is so unattractive. JFK Jr., of course was the only exception.
yes—from Wiki. entry on Joe II:
(Joe II married Sheila Rauch in 1979)
The Boston Archdiocese initially granted Kennedy the annulment, which was only discovered by Rauch after the decision in 1996. Rauch, who is an Episcopalian, wrote a book Shattered Faith: A Woman’s Struggle to Stop the Catholic Church from Annulling Her Marriage explaining that she was opposed to the concept of annulment, because it meant in Roman Catholic theology that the marriage had never actually existed, and claiming that the Kennedy family influence made it possible to unilaterally “cancel” a twelve-year marriage. A tribunal decision in favour of annulment is automatically appealed, and the decision is not effective until a second, conforming, sentence is granted. Instead of allowing the appeal to take place in the United States, Rauch appealed directly to the Holy See.
The original decision was overturned by the highest appellate tribunal of the Roman Catholic Church, the Roman Rota, in 2005. Rauch was informed of the decision by the Boston Archdiocese in 2007. As the first decision was never confirmed, there was no time at which the Church declared the marriage to be null or gave Kennedy permission to remarry.
SO TRUE!I was trying to be nice in saying the same thing.
Looks were all he had, he was as dumb as a stump, and he paid for it in the end with his life (and took two innocent people with him).
Joe Kennedy did. Right after he bought the Ambassadorship to London with the million he made during prohibition.
The Kennedys are like cockroaches. Just when you think you have a handle on the problem more pop-up.
“...after the 31-year-old Kennedy formed an exploratory committee”
For those that know the Kennedy family history, this term could have multiple meanings.
Ah, forgive me folks but why in the wide world ‘o’ sports is something like this appearing here? Who gives a rip about the f’ing Kennedys?
“hell cheat on her”
I rather IGNORANT thing to say. If you knew anything about Kennedy history, you’d realize that he’s already cheating on her.
...but I’ll forgive you.
Mmmmmm......if he loses the race, he can always become

Kennedys are the Kardashians of the east coast.
The Kardashians never killed anybody.
Remember when that great greasy barrel of cheap bourbon died, and we were all told by the media how much we loved and admired him, and to line up at the sidewalks as his overloaded hearse drove by (the rear tires about to burst)--?
And the cameras showed that no one was lining up on those sidewalks to watch his Last Ride (which should have been over the Chappequidick Bridge)--there's not as much love out there for these buck-toothed airheads, despite the gushing and fawning of the prostitute press.
I was hoping we could go one without the name "Kennedy" in politics, at least for a few more years. Looking at one is like looking at your cat's lastest hairball, and knowing you're going to end up having to clean it up.
The "Camelot Cousin" and "his long-time GalPal" (Boston Herald).
Can you guess the troubled life that will happen to any children from this marriage.
