Another pro-choicer rejected for Vatican ambassadorship.
I am curious about how many times this administration plans to insult the Roman Catholic Church: Vatican blocks Caroline Kennedy appointment as US ambassador The Vatican has blocked the appointment of Caroline Kennedy as US ambassador, according to reports. Vatican sources told Il Giornale that their support for abortion disqualified Ms Kennedy and other Roman Catholics President Barack Obama had been seeking to appoint. You | Read More »
Heckuva Job, Paterson
Money quote from this devastating article concerning the New York Senate appointment fiasco: . . . One Democratic political consultant, who requested anonymity to candidly assess the governor’s performance, said Mr. Paterson had inadvertently pulled off something staggering: alienating three of the most powerful political families in state and national politics at the same time. “He’s managed to anger, in one fell swoop, the Kennedys, | Read More »
If this is how NY liberals are feeling, we’re going to have fun in 2010.
For those who don’t feel like risking the SAN/Intelligence loss that can come from reading one of Dowd’s columns, let me summarize: I like Blagojevich more than I like Paterson, because Blagojevich is clearly insane – do you hear that, Illinois voters? Insane – and Paterson did my friend Marquise Caroline Kennedy-Schlossberg wrong by not picking her right away. That let the awful, awful Clintons | Read More »
I Demand Popcorn
Link: Instantly opening a rift among New York Democrats, Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand – a little-known, pro-gun Democrat from a rural Republican district – won appointment Friday to the Senate seat left vacant by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Gov. David Paterson announced his choice a day after presumed front-runner Caroline Kennedy – a woman with considerably more star power but less experience – mysteriously dropped out of | Read More »
The Caroline Kennedy Fiasco
It has left massive amounts of collateral damage–starting with Caroline Kennedy, of course, continuing with the Governor of New York, and even encompassing the political circle of Senator Kennedy, who is quite mad with his niece. Such is the price, of course, of attempting to loft to great political heights a public figure who is quite clearly unprepared for the rough-and-tumble of politics. What was | Read More »
Caroline sacrifices NY Senate seat
ow, just when she had Paterson genuflecting before her, she throws in the towel. Maybe she’s figuring a seat will be opening up in MA soon. Uncle Teddy can resign and Deval Patrick appoint her. Makes sense to me.
Paterson Downplays Kennedy’s Chances
I’m beginning to think that New York Governor David Paterson really doesn’t intend to name Caroline Kennedy to succeed Hillary Clinton in the Senate: Caroline Kennedy’s lack of elected office experience “does not help her” in her quest to represent New York in the U. S. Senate, Gov. David A. Paterson told The Buffalo News on Thursday. “The notion that I have to take Caroline | Read More »
Palin: “Kennedy gets a free ride, Couric and Fey “exploiting” me.”
This is such a bunch of crap. While I never was 100% behind Palin because of the fact I do think she is a bit incompetent evidenced by her “Couric” interview in which she couldn’t even list a few daily newspapers that she read or she couldn’t define the role of the VP, I do agree with her on this issue. Said Palin: “I’ve been | Read More »
The Change Bus Drives Off the Cliff of Insanity
The Change Bus is rapidly swerving off the cliff of insanity & Barry hasn’t even taken office yet! I mean, seriously folks, this “presidential transition” has reality show train wreck written all over it. Consider what “The One” has brought us before even taking office: 1. BLAG-O-GATE: Who among us hasn’t enjoyed the splendor of Blog-o-gate? I personally love the fact that the clown is | Read More »
The Politics of Celebrity
The word just was put forth: Stewart Smalley is now the Junior Senator from Minnesota. It took a system that allowed for the discovery of ballots in cars, stuck in machines, and quite possibly down in the basement behind the furnace. Never can tell where a ballot is going to show up but, at least if you know what you want the eventual outcome of | Read More »
As Mel Brooks Might Put It . . .
It’s good to be a Kennedy: Like it or not, roughly 7,000 employees of New York City file 32-page disclosure forms each year divulging personal information about their family finances in an effort to bolster confidence in open government. But when Caroline Kennedy was employed by the city Department of Education from 2002 to 2004, as the chief executive of the Office of Strategic Partnerships, | Read More »
Omigod omigod omigod Paterson’s maybe going to go with Marquise Kennedy-Schlossberg…
I don’t know what wonderful thing I did in a previous lifetime to deserve this gift, but I’m hardly going to pass it up: Governor may be leaning toward Kennedy Two people close to Paterson tell AP they believe she’ll be his choice ALBANY, N.Y. – Officials say the daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy will be the governor’s choice to fill the | Read More »
My Faith In The Republic Is Strengthened
To wit: Caroline Kennedy’s second act as a Senate hopeful didn’t get much better reviews from New York’s press than her first. A New York Daily News columnist said “the wheels of the bandwagon are coming off.” New York Post State Editor Fred Dicker already put her on his list of 2008 losers. And The New York Times said “she seemed less like a candidate | Read More »
Marquise Kennedy-Schlossberg’s AP courtiers polish her words.
