If your name were Joseph Patrick, your candidacy would be a joke.
That is of course a paraphrase of what Eddie McCormack said to Ted Kennedy back in their 1962 Senate debate. But its just as true now of Teddys great-nephew JoJoJo Kennedy.
So what if he doesnt have any qualifications. Hell drive off that bridge when he comes to it.
Actually, he does have a record, and thats the fact that his name is Kennedy and he doesnt have a record, a police record that is. For a Kennedy, thats quite a record to run on.
Somebody said yesterday that politics in this state is like the movie Groundhog Day. The same thing keeps happening over and over and over again.
You have a bunch of trust-funded limousine liberals railing against the rich the one-percenters, as theyre being called this year until a coveted elective office opens up. Then a one-percenter steps up, and all the plebeians in the 99 percent are supposed to automatically step aside and genuflect.
Paging Granny Warren, paging JoJoJo Kennedy. Some of them married their money, others inherited it, or played the race or gender cards for their free rides. But beyond living in mansions, they all have one thing in common. They havent got a clue what its like to work for a living.
JoJoJo Kennedy a fourth-generation one-percenter.
Have you watched the kids 170-second campaign-announcement video yet? Its packed with embarrassing punch lines he doesnt even realize hes delivering, including references to stacking the deck and the super-rich.
But my favorite is when JoJoJo pledges to get people underwater back on dry land.
Er, does that include Mary Jo Kopechne?
Hell be running against Sean Bielat Peace Corps vs. Marine Corps. In any other state, it would be a no-brainer, especially since 31-year-old JoJoJo was living in his mommys basement in Ed Markeys Cambridge district until last week. Now the papers solemnly call him the Brookline Democrat.
Like Uncle Teddy before him, the lad was biding his time in the district attorneys office. And I give him credit last December, he prosecuted the Harvard groper. A lot of Kennedys would have recused themselves rather than go after an alleged perv who was lugged on the Red Line. Professional courtesy and all that.
Meanwhile, all the usual coatholders are gathering for this newest iteration of Camelot. But there is one job still open in this Kennedy campaign the Dave Powers slot. The pay is lousy, the tasks menial, but there are some fringe benefits included, if you get my drift. And I dont mean having an alley named after you in Charlestown after youre dead.

“Hell drive off that bridge when he comes to it.”
Ya gotta love it!
LOL! Did this inbred Kennedy REALLY say this? Funniest foxpas of the year so far.
Here, JOJOJOJO, I'll give you a head start on getting people underwater back on dry land.
Can’t remember exactly but Sat. Night Live once had this joke (spoken by Jane Curtin) on Weekend Update (’80): “President Carter and Sen. Ted Kennedy have agreed to a debate. Kennedy promises not to bring up the Middle East if Carter
promises not to bring up Chappaquiddick.”
something like that
Save for read after work.
At least he's an American and that makes him more qualified than one Baraq Hussein mohammed 0bama.
Did his parents have a stuttering problem?
It’s Howie’s nickname. He’s Joe Kennedy III, even though his father was RFK. Hid great-grandfather, father and now him were all Joes. Joe Kennedy Jr., Jack’s older brother, died during the War. And please spare me the posts denigrating Joe Kennedy Jr.’s service. It makes you look small.
And we’re already hearing “Get Back” song parodies, as in “JoJo was a man who...”
Gotta love those trust fund babies - he's right - beyond living in mansions, they main thing they have in common is they've never worked for a living - not one day...
The lyrics fit:
“Your mothers waiting for you
“Wearing her high heeled shoes
“And her low neck sweater...
