Former first daughter Caroline Kennedy on Thursday coasted through a Senate confirmation hearing to be the next U.S. ambassador to Japan, promising to carry forward her father John F Kennedy’s legacy with humility.

The soft-spoken Kennedy told the Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday that if confirmed, she would work to strengthen the crucial bond between the United States and its Asian ally on trade, the military and student exchanges.

Won’t we ever be rid of this scourge of Kennedys? They breed like rabbits and all go into politics.

Keep enough of the masses dependent and dense, and that image is the result.

Alcoholism, insanity, sexual deviance....the Kennedy hallmarks. They should have a family crest made up for that.

I didn’t know Caroline is a lesbian. Must be if nominated for ambassadorship during this administration. It is a part of the criteria.

The confirmation hearing will never see the light of day for that very reason. It’s debilitating, and grounds to scrap the idea of confirming her. Her entire family would roll over in the grave to hear her trapped in such an abhorrent, bad habit.

She has the resources to correct it and did not.

Her entire family struggles to crack three digits IQ-wise. Ever hear Joe or Bobby Jr try to talk without a script? John-John? How about Patches? Like the British Royals, they are all idiots on parade.

she is so unsuited to carry JFK’s legacy, and today, she’d have to be a republican to do it
