I don’t have any particularly strong feelings one way or the other about Caroline Kennedy’s throwing her hat in the ring to be appointed senator from New York. On the one hand, I’m a dyed-in-the-wool old-school tax-and-spend Democrat who aspires one day to be a limousine liberal – so “Senator Kennedy” has a distinctly pleasant ring to it. On the other hand – entitlement! Eh, what’re you gonna do?
But Congressman Gary Ackerman (D-NY) had this to say about Ms. Kennedy:
I don’t know what Caroline Kennedy’s qualifications are. Except that she has name recognition, but so does J-Lo.
Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got; she’s still Senator Lopez from the block. And imagine how much better C-SPAN would be… “I yield the remainder of my time to my booty-licious colleague from the great state of New York.”
