“Joe Kennedy III announces run for Barney Frank’s seat”

Sounds like a gay marathon.

“All righty boys, first queen to lay hand on Barney Frank’s seat wins.”

The Kennedys: can’t drive, can’t fly, can’t ski, can’t pilot a PT boat, but THEY know what’s best for us.

Dunno why this sprung to mind: "He was so politically connected that he could get a charge of buggery reduced to 'following too close'" :)

I recall when Scott Brown was running for “Ted Kennedy’s” seat - Senator Brown’s comment was that it was not “Ted Kennedy’s Seat” - it was the “People’s Seat.”

I think the title was supposed to be “Kennedy to pursue Barney Frank’s seat”

If he takes Barney’s seat, do the gerbils come with it?

Does the Mass. Legislature screen for drugs and alcohol prior to being able to run for office?

Dang, you beat me to it!

I was going to suggest that Kennedys are like cockroaches, as you can never be certain that the last one in the house is dead and there’s always a chance they’ll come back.

The sole exception was poor Rosemary. Find out how Joe Sr & Rose dealt with her rebelliousness.

He was supposed to announce at the Newton Center T stop, but he released a video instead.

I suspect he couldn't find the 4th CD to save his life.

Give me a break, When is Assachussets going to stop voting these genetic deficients into office? Haven’t the Kennedys done enough damage to the country already? Just think: Every single problem this country faces today is a direct result of a Kennedy and/or an idiot from Harvard. That bastion of mega intellect Harvard, with luminaries such as Barney Frank, Jamie Gorelick, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy, GW Bush, Obama... If everyone just ignored anything and everything coming out of this toilet of a state, the country would be a hell of a lot better off. Don’t forget: The most successful people in the world are Harvard dropouts which must drive mutants like the Kennedys crazy because success and creating jobs is against the law of the Kennedys. The rich like the Kennedys must be allowed to sit on their arse generation after mutant generation and leech off the hard work of illegals and the poor by using money and socialism as an excuse. F the Kennedys, F liberals and F Assachussets.

I like this from his bio on wiki:

“There, he worked for the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, which provides free legal services to low-income people in civil matters.”

Yeah but what they don’t mention is how it completely misleads the poor, that 99.9999999999 times out of 100 they will get rejected for representation. It’s a scam solely made to boost the image of slimebags like the Kennedys.
