This follow-on generation of Kennedys is a bridge too far.

What happened, the Kennedy trust fund running low? Why not, his whole fricken family before him sponged off the tax payer monies so he might as well do the same.........

Just what Connecticut needs is another parasite member of the kennedy family ruling over us.

He should move back to Massachusetts the loser

Hey all he has to do is say he celebrates abortion and homosexuality and that he Hates God/Christ, that combined with the name Kennedy, wont even have to campaign much.

Imagine having to go through life carry such a name as Ted Kennedy, Jr.

Not to visit the sins of the father on the son, but it's like being saddled for life with a giant "kick me" sign.

I guess he hasn’t found happiness with a real job, and now he wants onto the public dole for the rest of his life. Don’t let him start pilfering the public largesse, unless you want him to think it is his appointed destiny.

Do the Kennedy’s actually run for office, or do they just buy the seat and walk in. And that being the case, they’re jerks for not being honest about it

I can’t wait until these guys are down to running for city council seats. It’ll be entertaining to see the press covering them as if anybody else at that point really cared.

This Kennedy clan mirrors the hordes of Americans who WON'T work. Those lazies think it's their RIGHT to suck off the gubmin teat for always and ever.

Sadly it keeps them in ghettos, prisons, government housing, on welfare, food stamps and medical care.

If you notice DENTAL work ISN'T part of the deal and most welfare sucker have horrible teeth.

The Kennedy Clan mirrors major league problems in America.

Can anybody here name one Kennedy who ever had a job in the private sector? Family controlled non profits corporations or political positions don’t count. Has a Kennedy ever done any kind of work? I know I might be irritating people by asking such a dumb question.

I’m 81 years old and when I was FIFTEEN J.F.K. was elected as my congressman.

I’ve had that damned family foisted on me ever since.

No wonder I’m cranky.

There's this bridge on the Merritt Parkway that's a bit rough, if you're not expecting it. (It's been a while since I've been down that way.)

Isn't his brother Patches? Patches was a constantly stoned congresscritter. Heck, when he went to pick up his controlled substances in his district, he was in such a hurry for his refills, that he turned into oncoming traffic to get to the pharmacy (car paid for by "Friends of Patches Kennedy").

However, while in The District, he set his sights on running over the local constabulary, blaming Ambien for his "sleep driving".

Supposedly Great Grandpappy Joe Sr. was a bootlegger back in prohibition days.

He also was a whoremaster, a hard core Jew hating anti-Semite, and a Nazi sympathizer.

This is the one who had a leg amputated because of bone cancer. According to the Wikipedia biography, he narrowly missed being on the plane that crashed into the Potomac in 1982 (only 4 of the passengers on the plane survived).

The district is competitive. It’s current incumbent, rat Edward Meyer (who was a RINO in the NY State Assembly in the 1970’s before switching to rat, losing a bid for Congress, and moving to CT, weird) won with just 52% in 2010 and 53% in 2012.
