Skip to comments.Memo to Caroline Kennedy: Stop trying to force your son on America

On Tuesday, New York magazine published an essay by a 24-year-old law student who recently paddleboarded around Manhattan for the first time.
I signed up for the race because I thought it sounded cool, writes our participant. Of course, when I asked around, everyone said it was really hard and Id better start training.
The smugness, the entitlement, the painfully obvious observation one might wonder: Who cares?
Until you look at the byline and realize: Oh, of course. Another Kennedy foisted upon us.
Our diarist is none other than Jack Schlossberg, grandson of JFK, son of Caroline, accomplishment-free save for that 25-mile race around Manhattan which he curiously notes he lives on rather than in.
This semi-self-deprecating essay is juxtaposed with 14 portraits of Jack in black-and-white on his big day, muscular and shirtless and smiling, just one of the guys. He resembles no one so much as his late Uncle John F. Kennedy Jr., who, until his untimely death in 1999, was the Kennedy familys last last great hope.
Is anyone asking for this?

He should do what Kramer did and commute to work by swimming around Manhattan. If he has a job, that is.
This country was founded so our ancestors would not have to deal with dynasties. No more Clintons, no more Bushes, and no more Kennedies. Is that clear?
Right we DID have a revolution to get rid of hereditary, dynastic monarchies....
We don’t want any more of that crap
The smarter Dems (yes, they do exist) don’t wish to revive all that Kennedy mythology and adoration. Not now. The Democrats are having a hard enough time just getting rid of the Clinton’s who still think it’s 1997 and they are the center of the universe.
The last gasp of the Kennedy mystique died with Teddy, if you were old enough to vote for JFK you would be in your late 70’s today. To anybody under 50 Kennedy was someone you read about in History class.
He looks like his father.
“He, like, is my son, you know and he wants to , you know , like, um run for um, like a political um office um someday, and um we um, like wanted to, ...you know, like come on TV and like some junk.”
Was she dropped on her head as a child?
That girl has been exposed to way too much sun. Her skin looks worse than mine and I’m 20 years her senior!
Ha. Great Pet Sounds track!
Who the heck decided that the Kennedy’s were American royalty???
Shes still got those Kennedy rabbit teeth going on.
“Was she dropped on her head as a child?”
The Japanese were asking Obama the same question.
No more Kennedys, no more Klintoons, and no more Bushs. NO TO ALL OF THEM
“He looks like his father.”
Lucky for him.
When Caroline was appointed Ambassador to Japan, the Japanese response was, “Geez guys, wasn’t Hiroshima and Nagasaki bad enough?”
They can’t captain a boat, ski, drive a car or fly a plane, and we need to listen to them!?
