Caroline Kennedy would like to become senator of New York.
Well who freaking wouldn't?
Hell, I wouldn't mind becoming a senator. Of course, it's along the same lines of listening to these 20 something girls who say, "Well I like traveling."
Again, who freaking wouldn't? They make it sound like it's a hobby they slave at or major in during college.
It's the issue of whether you are so luxuriously rich and paid for that you can AFFORD to travel. And thus it is the same thing when it comes to becoming senator.
If you can afford to become a senator, well then isn't it a cute little noble "hobby" for you? No, no, it's not a serious job where millions of people's lives depend on the decisions you make. No, it's like traveling or playing Barbie.
Now I've tried to warn you people about nepotists. It is the nepotists that are largely to blame for our problems today. People who had no skill, no game and no talent, but instead were put in charge of the country's most powerful positions because of who their daddy was.
George Bush the son of Bush '41.
Nancy Pelosi, daddy's girl of Baltimore's mayor.
Al Gore son of a senator.
Barack Obama, had mommy pay for everything to go to Harvard and went straight into politics and on the public dole
Ted Kennedy, brother of JFK, neither of which I recall built the empire Joseph Kennedy did.
Not one of these parasites and nepotists ever did a damn thing in their lives worthy or noble (bar JFK of course). Not one of these preppies ever worked a day in the private sector and therefore, no matter how many years of "public service" they have, are thereby incapable of making the real world, tough decisions every day normal REAL men and women like us have to. They got their jobs based on who their daddy was, their connections and no matter how bad they bungle it, because they have the money, they can afford the PR and campaign expenses to buy them a seat.
But as much as I loathe these inferior humans, they are ultimately not the ones to blame for their perpetual and dynasty like life long, and multi-generational long political careers.
It is the American people.
Americans have largely fumbled the ball on this one, somehow thinking we have to constantly and perpetually elect these scumbuckets into office. That we have no choice. But if there was something that told me Americans are forever lost and have completely abdicated their responsibility of being stewards of this democracy, it is this past election.
If I recall correctly, everybody wanted "change." And who got elected?
Joe Biden a 84 term senator and his never-set-foot-once-in-the-private-sector-community-organizer-cum-state congressman-cum senator-cum president-elect Barack Obama.
And who got berated, yelled at, and vilified?
Sarah Palin the only person in recent memory to run for office WHO WAS A FREAKING NORMAL PERSON. And what was the main criticism?
She doesn't have enough public experience.
The hypocrisy is only what socialists can conjure;
Palin didn't have enough experience, but Obama did.
We want change, but Palin would be a normal blue collar person like us. Let's go with the veteran, life long insiders.
And now, lil Miss Princess, Caroline Kennedy wants to become New York's senator.
Did she flip burgers?
Did she work retail?
Has she ever waitressed?
Did she pay her way through college?
No, of course not.
Oh, but you watch. You watch those "street smart" New Yorkers. They're going to fall for it hook line and sinker. They'll vote for her just like those moronic imbeciles in Boston voted for Ted Kennedy. And even though she has no clue, could not even fathom what normal hell it is to live a normal everyday person's life, oh, she's still somehow going to be able to help you. She's going to know what it's like to be facing foreclosure. She knows what it's like to have to scrimp and save to pay for health insurance. Oh, I'm sure she knows.
Americans, specifically, New Yorkers have a chance to pull their heads out of their asses and elect a normal person. And if you don't, then you can expect to have the same things;
A perpetuity of incompetent, spoiled brats who view public service as a cute little hobby and a means by avoiding work at all costs, and the economic mess we've gotten ourselves into.
