The Press' Self-Immolation
said this week that there are three central reasons to appoint her cousin to the Senate: her grasp of financial matters, her scholarship of the Bill of Rights and her experiences as a working mother. "There are very few women in the Senate and very few mothers... And we really need someone with that experience, and I think Caroline will be great."
Let's cover and condense that part again:
She has a lot of money, she co-wrote books called the "People magazine coverage" of the Constitution, and she is a working mother. (Emphasis added).Wasn't there a woman, a relative newcomer in politics, recently who was also a working mother? And the Washington Post lauded her similarly. Right?
As for me, I'd as soon support Caroline Kennedy-Schlossberg for Senator as I would allow her brother to pilot my small private plane.
When you produce a product that no one wants, you eventually lose your job and the company you work for goes under. No one wants to be lied to about why Caroline Kennedy-Schlossberg would, without any detectable legislative skills and absolutely no experience in public office, make a great Senator; and a talented new comer, with tons of executive experience (compared to anyone else running from either party) is a joke and a drag on the ticket.
The people writing the stories and otherwise putting out the newspapers which are indistinguishable from Democratic public relations have only themselves to blame for the very sad state of modern journalism.
Toodles, journalists, it's been fun.

I find the Caroline Kennedy love in perplexing also but it does not take a genius to determine why Sarah Palin was a joke and a drag on the ticket, you betcha.
Eric, if you think that Sarah Palin would have fared any better if she were a Democrat, you are only fooling yourself.
While I share your skepticism, well more like down right hatred of the lefties that dominate the media, lets not be too rash in our "Palin Protectionism." First of all, don't forget that Sarah was at first, treated somewhat fairly by all it took was a couple "missteps" so to speak... maybe one about seeing Russia from her house, or a statement about a certain individual "Pallin around with terrorists"...
And then there is the fact that she is not intelligent, as anyone who watched her speeches/ interviews knows.
Not to mention we are talking vice president vs. Senator... Everyone knows that the ONLY job of the VP is to be ready to take over the Pres spot if something goes wrong... senators, don't have such responsibility, in fact, their staffs do most of there work.
Adimittedly, her real comment was:
"As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border."
--Sarah Palin, explaining why Alaska's proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience, interview with CBS's Katie Couric, Sept. 24, 2008
also, do we think the Kennedy label may be just as important as the liberal label in her pretty media portrayal?
I'll just go back to personal reflection of my dominance...
P.S. Are you married to my mother yet?
