Caroline Kennedy, The More "You Know"

Mrs. Caroline Kennedy is pining for the open Senate seat that is being vacated by Hillary Clinton and is battling the media perception of her entitlement.  Unfortunately Mrs. Kennedy doesn’t help her case with her constant use of you know in this interview.

  • There is a despiration in the background. Her realization that at 51, she’s behind the curve when it comes to Kennedy standards. Her use of nervous ‘you know’s.’ Her willingness to break bread with Al Sharpton. Her obsessiveness to meet with other people whom she would not give the time of day to before the Presidential election. Her shameless puffery of work among New York public schools, that, while admirable, amounts to resume inflation. Her children are now 20, 18, 15. Her husband is either in deep background or no longer in her life. There are also the rumors that her friendship with New York Times Co. CEO Pinch Sulzberger is a bit more than casual. To endorse Caroline Kennedy for the U.S. Senate is to ignore the slings and arrows fired at Sarah Palin in September. Midlife crisis does not a candidacy make.

  • Her meeting with Al Sharpton is a big sign of desperation. To associate oneself with a bigot like Mr. Sharpton is incredulous. In addition to dropping her married name to capitalize on her maiden name is straight out of the Clinton political handbook of expediency.

    She’s actually getting an easy pass compared to what Governor Palin went through. I can talk ad naseum about media bias, but that would be beating a dead horse.

  • Wasn’t there recently a female candidate for high office who was criticized by the MSM for her lack of experience?

  • I thought she is [was] Mrs. Schlossberg?

  • You know, the thing about her is how absolutely uncourageous she is. What has she done, you know, that has shown that she is her own person? All of her beliefs and ideologies are right in line with the leftist wing (although I think they are the main house now) of her party. True courage would be if she, you know, lived and proclaimed her alighment with ALL Catholic social teachings.

  • I thought her last name began with “P”.

  • Gabriel Austin,

    I don’t know when she dropped her married name, but I hear she did it within the last year or so.

    Walter,

    I agree, she seems to be having a mid-life crisis and is desperately trying to make up for it by capitalizing on her name. Camelot never existed, it was a myth made up by the MSM during JFK’s presidency. Ted Kennedy and his cousins ruined the myth and Caroline may be puting the final stake into it with this run.

  • The ivy-league princess speaking like a high school dropout. Hilarious. Or painful (if you believe in the camelot stuff)

  • Thank Heavens Princess Caroline didn’t serve as mayor of her town for two terms and get elected governor of her home state, then we would know she was unqualified based upon the standards observed by the media in the last election! Credit should be given to the Princess for overcoming the twin disadvantages of being fantastically wealthy and bearing the name Kennedy. Imagine what she could have accomplished if she had started out with nothing and possessed the last name of Palin!

  • Caroline Kennedy wrote two books on the constitution.

    Sarah Palin probabaly could not pass a high school sophomore level U.S. government class.

  • Mark,

    Apparently most elected officials cannot pass a high school level government class:

    Writing books doesn’t make one a leader. If you’re going to start requiring flawless public speaking and writing as a sign of intelligence and leadership, you might want to check the way you spelled “probably” in your post.

  • “Caroline Kennedy wrote two books on the constitution.”

    Snort! She wrote those books as much as her father, courtesy of Ted Sorenson, wrote Profiles in Courage.

    As for Palin, she accomplishes more in a month than Princess Caroline has accomplished in her entire wastrel life.
