Just Another Girl On The IRT

Freestyle musings from a pseudo-intellectual hellcat in high heels with Huxtable aspirations in a ghetto fab world. Proudly sponsored by bouts of bitchy mood swings, one too many swigs of Turning Leaf, the letters F & U and the madness that is the Rotten Apple.

Inherit the whirlwind

Sweet on CarolineNo sooner than the whispers percolating for weeks snowballed into screams with confirmation that in fact yes, Caroline Kennedy is asking to be considered as the next junior senator representing my great state in the U.S. Senate did the knives come out and the jackals ready to pounce.
Who does she think she is? A Senate seat isn't another family heirloom to be passed down. Why her, why now? She's never stood up for anything before. What the hell makes her qualified?
You think Illinois would have all the intraparty backstabbing fun?

Much of the skepticism and concerns are well within bounds and justifiably deserve merit. That is until you consider whom the main source of opposition is coming from. A coordinated attack doesn't just sprout up from thin air and talking points don't script themselves.

"Caroline Kennedy, although I’m sure a fascinating and engaging person, simply doesn’t have the experience or Washington know-how to get it done for New York." - Stuart Applebaum, president of the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union

"We don't know if Caroline has that fire in the belly. Being senator of New York is a 24/7, 365-day-a-year endeavor." - Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Queens, Brooklyn)

"I don't know what Caroline Kennedy's qualifications are. Except that she has name recognition, but so does J.Lo." - Rep. Gary Ackerman, (D-Queens)

Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it's enemy action.

So what do these hacks all have in common? They're all footsoldiers in the Hillary or Mass Suicide personality cult.

The same brown nosing lackeys who peddled the imaginary sniper fire bullshit with a straight face on the cable news yakkers are the same ones taking potshots. The same water carrying cronies who elevated resume padding to a fine art with the puffed up peace treaties she signed in her downtime with foreign ladies who lunch are the same ones trying to cast Caroline Kennedy as some dizzy dilettante window shopping for a new hobby.

Hypocrisy thy flipside is irony.
