THIS IS ALL ELIOT SPITZER'S FAULT  8:47 pm January 21, 2009

Caroline, You Know, Dropped Out Because Paterson Wasn’t Going To Appoint Her, Anyway

by Ken Layne

Caroline, NoWhen this BREAKING NEWS broke 40 minutes ago, Caroline Kennedy was dropping out of the whole “You know, I am famous, politically, so anoint me senator” deal for “personal reasons.” Ha, and now it turns out (according to the New York Post, which is apparently correct) the “reason” was she wasn’t the “person” Paterson will choose to run out Hillary Clinton’s term in the Senate.

Paterson, the blind lieutenant governor who only rose to this kingmaking perch because of the filthy cock jackal antics of Eliot Spitzer, sort of mentioned yesterday that young Andrew Cuomo might be a better pick, what with his actual experience representing the citizens of New York.

And now, it is finished, probably, even though she wrote that nice endorsement column for the NYT that sort of helped Obama finally claim the nomination he had already pretty much won. Caroline Kennedy is surely a nice lady who knows many things, and now she’ll have some time to actually prepare to run for public office, if she decides to continue this weird pursuit.

I wouldn’t discourage that “weird pursuit.” The rich need hobbies — it keeps them from managing hedge funds. That’s also why we let them think they’re smart and beautiful — the more time they spend putting their wise life lessons to paper or starting a line of cosmetics, the safer the world is for the rest of us.

I notice that you accept uncritically the New York Post’s reporting on the reasons why. Is this deliberate bias on your part? The New York Times and the Washington Post cite very different motivations in their reporting.

While the Post version certainly leaps to the mind, I would remind you that it comes from the same reporters who told us not 24 hours ago that Kennedy was a lock – and a week before that Steve Israel has it sewn up.

My point is that the Post has shown the reporting in the Senate seat to be heavily padded out with imagination, supposition and conjecture. We know she is out, but I think we’ll need to wait to know why and whose idea it really was.

Sadly, our blind governor did not notice that Caroline had stylish rich-girl hair.
The governor does have this in common with now top-seeder Andrew Cuomo, both have boinked hussies not listed on their marriage licenses. At least Cuomo will give better parties since the Food Network’s Sandra Lee has had semi-homemade carnal knowledge of Andrew Cuomo’s turkey baster.

Senora Kennedy Is Make Very Good Senator

Guest Opinion
by Rosa Ortiz
Chief of Housekeeping Staff
Estate of Caroline Kennedy

Buenos dias! I am Rosa. I twelve years work for Senora Caroline Kennedy and her family so I am write for you today to tell you why Senora Kennedy is make very very good senator for Nueva York. Senora Kennedy is very busy now with party menus so she tell me to write this when I am finish with floors and make the bed for guest wing. I am now finish so I write this.

Senora Kennedy is very very sad that television man say he no think she is make a good senator in Washington. This is not right for you to think this too because Senora Kennedy is make very good senator! Here is the reasons:

Senora Kennedy she is from famous senator family. Senora Kennedy father was El Presidente. She have tio who is senator. She have many cousin who also is senator, even all the ones with the drug problems. Why she is only one who no is senator? This is no fair to her. In my old country was the law that all family of el Presidente is also Senator or Minister until the revolucion.

Senora Kennedy is many plaques. She have a diploma from the Senator school and many trophies. She have many famous photografias and autografias. I know this because I have to clean her office every Tuesday and is very hard for to dust all this many things.

Senora Kennedy have very many busy jobs. She is edit the book for the children and the poetry. She also choose the winners for the many awards she is boss for. It is make her very tired, but every day Senora is go to work for the volunteer to raise the money for the awards and the charity. She have many parties at the home and the museum. She work very hard to shop for the new gowns and invitacions. She is also make the seating arrange and hide the tequila from Tio Teddy so he not get borracho. This she do for the poor.

Senora Kennedy she is the good mother. She is raise her two girls by herself, with the nannies, and every night read the girls the poetry book she edit. The nannies are go now because the girls they also are go off now to Senator school.

Senora Kennedy she is always know the issues. Every morning she always tell me, “Rosa, where is my New York Time paper?” Then she read it before she go to Fifth Avenue for the shopping. When she get back she tell me to put it in the recycle because to save the planet.

Senora Kennedy is the good boss for the people. She treat everybody on the staff very nice and no yell. We all get one day off in the week and she give the $200 bonus this Christmas. Except Maria because she broke the crystal bowl in the office when she dusting.

Senora Kennedy knows how to call the taxi. Senora Kennedy say to tell you she sometime call taxi by herself.

This is why you should no listen to the people who say she no be a good senator. Senora Kennedy is make the best senator because she is the pure full blood of the Kennedy, and no one drop of mestizo. When she is senator maybe she give you $200 bonus if you no break anything or be disloyal. Extra $100 if you write a good blog about her.

I have to fold laundry now. Also Tio Teddy is come to the party tonight so I have to lock the liquor cabinets.

Scandalabra January 21, 2009 at 9:27 pm

And it seems to me you lived your life

“Sources said the reason Paterson had decided not to tap the daughter of John F. Kennedy was her poor performances in media interviews and in in private sessions with various officials.”

Palin’s case that it’s class bias with Caroline falls apart here. People who have trouble expressing themselves are at a disadvantage in getting a job. Both gals should spend a little time at Toastmasters before venturing out publicly again.

Now Caroline is just looking unstable. NY Times, 5 min ago:
In a dramatic and confusing turn of events, Caroline Kennedy informed Gov. David A. Paterson on Wednesday that she would withdraw from consideration for the vacant Senate seat in New York, only to hours later signal that she may be interested in the seat after all.
According to a person who spoke with her, Ms. Kennedy called the governor, who will choose a successor to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, to tell him that she was no longer interested in the post. Two other Democrats said they were also told Wednesday that Ms. Kennedy’s candidacy was in doubt.
The news appeared to catch the governor off guard, throwing the Paterson administration into confusion and setting off conflicting news media reports.
The news appeared to catch the governor off guard, throwing the Paterson administration into confusion and setting off conflicting news media reports.
By 11:30 Wednesday night, the person said, after conversations between the governor’s operation and Ms. Kennedy’s camp, Ms. Kennedy was preparing a statement to reassert her interest in the job. But a draft of the statement, which was read to The New York Times, did little to settle the contradictory reports, with less-than-forceful language that said: “I remain interested in the possibility of serving in the U.S. Senate.”
Ms. Kennedy believed that the job was hers if she would accept it, the person said, but aides to Mr. Paterson declined to comment on whether that was the case and her weeks of auditioning for the job did not earn her much obvious support among New York voters or in state Democratic circles.

Caroline Kennedy has withdrawn from consideration for the U.S. Senate Seat vacated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“I informed Governor Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate,” Kennedy wrote in a statement released just after midnight Thursday.
There was a five-hour window of confusion Wednesday night about Caroline Kennedy’s regarding the Senate appointment. New York City newspapers began reporting her withdrawal around 7 p.m., but NBC News reporter David Gregory said repeatedly on air that the reports were mistaken.
The Associated Press, which had initially reported Kennedy’s withdrawal, reversed course and released a 730-word story stating that, “After wavering briefly, Caroline Kennedy renewed her determination Wednesday to win appointment to the U.S. Senate.”

How about Bubba? The Upstate Wingnuts would have a collective core meltdown.

[re=225456]Servo[/re]: Oh yeah, no drama there. And after weeks of slime-throwing the people of this country would put out a contract on Bubba and Hilary for dragging us through it all again.

Yes. I also admire the family’s dedication to public service and for that reason I’ve been trying for many years to be adopted into to the Kennedy family, that and the money.

While visiting our nations capital, Dont forget to relax at one of the districts many watering holes and lounges. Come enjoy the new drink developed by the DC mixologists, the “Cock Jackal”, Glenfiddich, Orange Kool-Aid and an olive with feta insert. Guaranteed to be expensive, but yet tacky at the same time. A real career and marriage builder.

Inquiring minds want to know…. Where’s Ed Schlossberg in all of this? Is his the name that dare not be spoken?

Some of us began to wonder when she announced her campaign slogan would be, “Apres moi, le deluge.”

C. Kennedy reminded of a PTA president in a very exclusive school who was swept in Obamamania and decided that she’d like to “make a difference.” This is when you go volunteer for a community action group. Make some speeches in solidarity with the little people (to a Kennedy, someone who does their own dishes). Try to save some affordable housing, get a crosswalk installed somewhere street urchins play, that kind of shit. Once you’ve been photo’ed doing shots with Teamsters, then you take advantage of your fundraising potential and run for office.

The above is the proper trajectory. You just don’t say, “I think I’d like to be more involved. I know! I’ll let that blind guy appoint me to the US Senate.” Call me old fashioned, but it just shouldn’t be that easy. It isn’t like the Senate of the House of Lords.
