Memo to Caroline Kennedy: Stop trying to force your son on America
NY Post ^ | 8-9-17 | Maureen Callahan

Posted on 08/09/2017 9:39:40 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

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 I’d 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 family’s last last great hope.

Is anyone asking for this?

Lots of Kennedy generational "dirt" reprised in the rest of the article, in case you have short memories.

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?

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.

The Japanese were asking Obama the same question.

When Caroline was appointed Ambassador to Japan, the Japanese response was, “Geez guys, wasn’t Hiroshima and Nagasaki bad enough?”

Another Kennedy.

They can’t captain a boat, ski, drive a car or fly a plane, and we need to listen to them!?
