I’ve seen many derogatory statements about JFK and his brother. I have never been able to figure out why that family is held in such high regard, most of them have been nothing but screw ups.

For the same reasons that Odumbo and the Clintoon is held in high regard.

They are media creations. They came of age in the 60s, when the mass media were just starting to realize the power they had to create and perpetuate myths. Look at the Beatles, the civil rights movement, the whole anti-war tempest ... They never would have become the phenomena they were without media hyperbole surrounding them.

"Camelot" was just another myth to them. And it's one that mysteriously endures to this day, albeit somewhat tarnished by reality.

And the media tried to do the same thing with obama. And Hillary. And are trying to do it with [shudder] Chelsea, of all people ...

They’re all screw ups. But they’re revered because they’re rich. Even though the money came from the old man bootlegging during Prohibition. And, they’re rank commies. Libs love commies.

They were glamorous, as only quasi-retarded buck toothed bootlegging Irish trash can be.
