Caroline Kennedy’s run for NY senator has surprised me on a few counts.
1. I’m surprised Caroline decided to run in the first place. This would seem to go against her lifelong very private grain. In this regard, for all of her 51 years, she has behaved like her mother, not her father. Her sudden dive into very public big time politics seems out of character.
2. I’m surprised by how much of an airhead Kennedy sounds like in interviews. I know she is well educated and cultured. But she sure comes off as not.
3. I’m surprised liberals are joining in the chorus to rebuff her candidacy. I was shocked to hear Alan Colmes question her legitimacy last night, for instance. And wow, even CNN is poking fun at her?…
Of course, CNN had to find a way to draw in Sarah Palin, calling her wink a tic, which it certainly isn’t.
Here’s the Perfunction video mentioned in the CNN blurb…
You know, as an aside, I’m intrigued that pro-abortion Kennedy draws in her experience as a mother as an asset to her candidacy for U.S. Senator, although in the aforementioned interview she couched this with an interesting pro-abortion tag:
And so, you know, I think that, you know, I bring, you know, my life experience to this, and you know, that includes, um, you know, being a mother. Um, I understand sort of those choices that women make.
