What's not to like about Caroline Kennedy?

She's perfect for the Senate seat. She looks like she's straight out of central casting. First--the debutante slouch, taught only in the most expensive private schools in the nation; then there's the slight equine resemblance, emphasized when she tosses her mane artlessly away from her face; and the aforementioned straight I-can't do-anything-with-it hair, which takes endless time and money to achieve; and lastly, the air of entitlement, of deserving to be a Senator by acclamation, without going through the dreary business of running for office.

Next at bat: Chelsea Clinton.

Your cynicism scythe and your sarcasm sword are very sharp, Madam. What a beatdown.

Well, at least we escaped Amy Carter.

Or maybe not. She might jump out of the woodwork like Caroline Kennedy sometime, too.

Sarcasm is my middle name.

By the way, Jimmy Carter's son ran for the Senate from, I think, Nevada.

Two Dogs said...

Your parents named you very well.

And yes, Jack Carter ran in Nevada.

Thank goodness I don't live in Nevada. Harry Reid and the possibility of being led by a Carter again?

Oh no. No no no no no.

I especially liked Princess Caroline's refusal to release her financials. Shocking request from the plebes, that.

Great stuff, Miriam!

I thought I was the only one who'd noticed the Mr. Ed resemblance.

A very ladylike, well-educated Mr Ed.
