Moral: NY gets what it deserves. Women and Democrats first! Carol-ing’s never been so off-tune. Plus more.
Has the American Senate had unqualified senators seated in it
illustrious past? Certainly it has, but those senators were
elected, and when properly elected, the American people got the
government they deserved. But New York foisting a Kennedy on the
public is simply shafting the entire country.

Hmm…another Kennedy in the Senate? The current Senator Kennedy is the one the Washingtonians like to call the Lion of the Senate. He’s the one who swam away from a drowning girl. I call him the Cowardly Lion (with apologies to Frank Baum).
Now Caroline Kennedy has asked to be nominated to the New York Senate seat vacated by Hillary Rodman Clinton.
And, it’s being whispered in Illinois that Chris Kennedy might be appointed to the seat vacated by Barack Hussein Obama.
Haven’t we had enough of the Kennedys? No more Kennedys!
For that matter: No more Bushes!

If it wasn’t so pathetic, the possible appointment of an airhead like Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg as U.S. senator from New York would be a downright hoot.
But this is no laughing matter. Such a move would have a deleterious affect on our democracy, and not because of what Schlossberg might or might not do in office. After all, look who she would be replacing. Rather, such an appointment would send yet another a message that are ruled by an insensitive elite that appoints its own to high positions regardless of qualifications or lack thereof.
This can only increase the public’s cynicism, which is already gnawing away at our political foundation, and fuel the disconnect that is rapidly separating the American people and its government.
Something as absurd as Princess Caroline in the
U.S. Senate might not be the straw that finally breaks
the camel’s back. But then again, it could be.

I demur. Caroline Kennedy is the perfect senator for New York. Having been represented in the U.S. Senate by the Upchucker Schumer and a woman whose only qualification was that she was once the only female in the White House not currently sleeping with the boy president, I can’t think of a person on the planet who would fit in better than Caroline.
From her grandfather, stock swindler Joe, to her father to her
two uncles and all her siblings, no one in the family is worth
the powder it would take to blow them to perdition. No, I think
she’s perfect. The people of New York richly deserve her.

DEMOCRATS: INNOVATING FAILURE FOR KIDS
Re: RiShawn Biddle’s No Democrat Left Behind:
Am I the only one who remembers the Democrats’ past “new, innovative and experimental ideas for education?” One of my favorites was the open classroom. That’s where you build warehouse space, call it an elementary school, and put 500 hundred small children, bursting with energy, in a single echo-chamber space. No walls, no sound deadening materials, and expect teachers to teach and children to somehow learn over the din.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
