And from Bos. Herald

http://bostonherald.com/news/politics/view/20220215perfect_union_for_joe_k3_afl-cio_endorsement_questioned_by_gop_foes/srvc=home&position=4

>>The Massachusetts AFL-CIO endorsed the not-yet-official congressional candidacy of Joseph P. Kennedy III yesterday — a pre-emptive move one prospective GOP opponent called a tactic straight out of the Camelot playbook — but Republicans say premature union nods could backfire on the Democratic dynasty’s scion.
“Well, that is shocking,” a sarcastic Sean Bielat told a Herald reporter who informed him of the endorsement. “It’s the first step in the coronation process. This is how the Kennedys do things.”
Bielat announced his candidacy for the redrawn 4th Congressional District seat in January; Kennedy hasn’t announced yet. (WILL TOMOROROW...) A University of Massachusetts at Lowell/Boston Herald poll last week suggested Kennedy gets a huge boost from name recognition. The poll had the political neophyte who just moved into the district last week trouncing Bielat, 60 percent to 28 percent — despite Bielat’s hard-fought, well-financed race against U.S. Rep. Barney Frank in 2010, which Frank took with 54 percent to Bielat’s 43 percent.

Wasn’t there a Kennedy on the ballot in the Scott Brown vs. Martha Coaklie Senate contest too?

Maybe Mr. Bielat could persuade another Kennedy to get on the ballot...like old Joe did for Jack.

Ch 4 Boston
http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/02/15/kennedy-gets-2nd-endorsement-despite-no-official-campaign-announcement/

>>BOSTON (CBS) – Joseph Kennedy III will officially announce plans to run for Congress Thursday, a campaign source tells WBZ-TV. The Massachusetts AFL-CIO endorsed Kennedy Sunday, days before he was set to officially announce his run for Barney Frank’s old seat in the fourth congressional district.
“I guess the unions like Kennedys,” said Boston College political science professor Dennis Hale. “They certainly have plenty of reason to have liked his other family member in the Senate, Edward Kennedy.
>>Hale believes, however, that even though some organizations might give him a pass because of his name, Kennedy will have to actively campaign to win the fourth congressional district seat.

Great. Just what America needs.

Another bloated, fat, alcoholic, philandering sob from that family of congenital degenerates mucking up the political scene.

There was a libertarian named Joe L. Kennedy, “no relation”.

Who knows.

They should save their time and money and not even have an election.

He can be designated by right of coronation - the people of Massachusetts have devolved into a mass of mindless zombies over this race of scum.

He’s not fat or bloated, he’s got red hair (a “ginger” some people would say) but

—he’s a Kennedy

—he was living in his mom’s house till now. Just moved into
the district.

So far no scandals or whatever but the very fact he’s
part of the Kennedy family instantly gives him a huge
advantage. (His dad, Joe Kennedy II, the son of RFK,
did serve briefly in Congress and was said to be running
for gov. awhile back but he had bad reputations and
scandals.)

no surprise. Moves into district this week, automatically at 60 per cent in polls due to his family name.

Yeah, he’s not bloated yet. But give him a few decades and he’ll mushroom into the kind of behemoth his cetaceanoid uncle became. Between women and booze and they all do.

You could a run a horse’s @$$ for office in Massachusetts and if its name was Kennedy, those idiots up there would elect it.

Though as said, in the special election of Jan. 2010 for
what had been Ted Kennedy’s seat, a libertarian named
Joe L. Kennedy did run as an independent. He and Dem.
nominee Martha Coakley lost to Scott Brown. But yes NOT a member of THAT Kennedy family. So...

Just when we thought the Kennedy malignancy was in remission, another tumor grows.

However, despite the fact that he’s carpetbagging into the Banking Queen’s former district, he won’t have 1/2 of the EBT drones to call on as they’ve been re-districted out.

Bielat, on the other hand, has to worry about a MA GOP whose chairman openly supported and financed democrats (i.e. Chuck Schumer and Devaluate Patrick).

We're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little more now if we can and the rest next quarter.

Kennedy for whatever! At least with the Kennedy label you know what you’re getting! A dr_nk_n wh_r_m_ng_r offside of the rehab with a pilot’s license, a Che shirt and a Catholic archbishop strapped to his ankle.

Wasn't it nice of the MA State Legislators to carve him out his very own territory while kicking Barney Frank to the curb ...

He's creepy looking too... red hair and translucent skin... reptile !

How Ray Bradbury! I think you mean BOOTlegger, as in every bottle of Scotch imported to this country since 1933 has a tribute to the Kennedy family.

Funny thing is, his mother, who divorced his father, seems pretty together. He actually graduated from Harvard Law, unlike his father who struggled to get through Zoo Mass Boston.

He’s probably a complete cipher politically, but he isn’t the complete nullity that his father was and he’s probably got a whole lot more intelligence and self discipline than his fat bloated uncle. But so does the average cocker spaniel.

I’ll support Sean Beilat, even though I live in Nikki’s 5th District, but he’s going up against the least worst Kennedy (so far) in a couple of generations. He’s definitely NO Patchs.

I haven’t heard him speak publicly yet, but his Dad and cousin Patrick were so awful and yet consistently got elected handily. The kid could be a real threat. BTW, he’s a lot better looking than either of them, too.

....Another one.

Is there a dammed endless supply of them? Does any of them know anything aside from politics? Has to be the biggest no talent bunch of a family that ever existed.

YES. When they are not boozing, bootlegging, philandering, screwing the American public, or sympathizing with Nazis,........... they are breeding - like the proverbial rats.

Isn’t that redundant? I thought horse’s @$$ was another name for Kennedy.

My Dad (RIP) was the prototypical Irish Catholic from the Northeast.

But shockingly for his time he always said: “A Kennedy is somebody who wants to give your tax money to the poor and get credit for doing it.”

How did his dad get to be Joseph Kennedy II if his father was Robert Kennedy?

Well, he may well be a congenital degenerate, but the other crap hasn't shown up .... yet. Besides, he has the best academic record of the bunch, is quite presentable, and hasn't killed or raped any one ... yet ... at least that we now know of.

Hell, he might even be drug-free. The Massholes couldn't ask for more than that from their rulers, now could they?

A new POSER from a family of professional politicians whose karma is constant tragedy and agony.

I wonder if Las Vegas is making any odds on "what" may befall Joe III.

It’s kind of complicated
Joe Kennedy Sr “The patriarch”, Hitler apologist
Joe Kennedy Jr—killed in WW II plane explosion

RFK’s son Joe Kennedy II, really should be Joe III
Joe K II’s son Joe III (this lad), really should be Joe IV

One poss.: The Joe killed in WW II didn’t live to
father any kids, etc., and somehow the family figured
Bobby’s son Joe should be Joe II. Confused yet? Maybe
because it’s not a direct line, either; Joe II being the
son of RFK, not “Joe Jr” who again didn’t live to father
any kids.

And there are voters out there who can’t wait to vote for him. Ch 7 Boston was interviewing a couple who seemed
to treat it like the Kennedys have the right to keep
giving us politicians. It’s the royal family, it’s a political
tradition, etc.

“If his name were Joseph Patrick instead of Joseph Patrick
Kennedy III, his candidacy would be a joke”
