Baby Kennedy Drops Out

Caroline Kennedy, not a week after her uncle’s collapse during our new president’s inauguration, has decided to drop her bid for Hillary Clinton’s senatorial seat. Kennedy’s candidacy was marked not by a long history of service and controversial politics, unlike the woman whose shoes she had attempted to fill, but by a distinct and nearly unprecedented total lack thereof.

To her supporters: we broke free of a monarchial government a few centuries ago because we chose to believe that lineage does not equal competence. Please stop embarrassing your fellow democrats- a Kennedy’s just a human being with an interesting family tree, no more, no less.

Old news by now, but equal-opportunity cynicism is good opinion journalism, yes?
