Posted on 01/03/2012 7:25:57 AM PST by raccoonradio
Just what Congress needs, a new Kennedy. Dont underestimate the sheeple mentality here in Mass, especially in Fwanks ultra-liberal district. They have no problem voting for someone based solely on his last name.
(FOX 25/MyFoxBoston.com) There is new speculation that Joseph P. Kennedy III is ready to run for Congress.
Sources close to Kennedy have told Rhode Island Public Radio that the 31-year-old son of former Congressman Joe Kennedy is setting up fundraisers and taking a serous look at running for the seat left open by the retirement of Barney Frank.
The younger Kennedy is a Harvard Law School graduate and is currently a Middlesex County prosecutor. He could announce his plans within a week.

He’s not “looking”, he’s been waiting for the right opening and this is it. Sadly, say hello to another Kennedy in Congress.
Lock up your daughters, the Kennedys are back in town.
Frank decided to not run for re-election because re-districting put some conservative-leaning towns in his
district. But despite that, the prospect of having a Kennedy
in the MA 4th district will drive voters to the polls. They will gush over him. Hope Sean Bielat will run again—his
strong showing last time put a scare into Barney—but can
he beat a member of the Kennedy Crime Family?
Currently his dad, former 8th dist. rep., bombards the airwaves of Boston TV and radio with his “Citizens Energy”
deal, brought to you by Chavez and “the good people of
****hes been waiting for the right opening and this is it. Sadly, say hello to another Kennedy in Congress.****
Barney was told to ‘get out now - the boy is ready’!!!!
Political prep school - only the elite matriculate.
btw suppose Brown beats Warren in the upcoming election (if he did it would be just barely). Come 2018, Joe Kennedy III
could well be finishing his third term as a U.S. Rep and the
“Kennedy For Senate” signs would come out of the basement
Another Kennedy and another lawyer, just what is needed in congress. The MSM will vet this guy thoroughly, that we can be sure of. s/
This kid’s father was named after Joe Kennedy Jr. (JFK’s brother who died young).
Wouldn’t that make his dad Joe III?
Wouldn’t that make this candidate (the fourth Joe Kennedy in the family) Joe Kennedy IV?
That's a wild picture on my monitor. The stars seem to move when the screen is scrolled.
Now back to business. The last thing this country needs is more of the Permanent Ruling Class.
However bar owners and Liquor store owners are dancing in the streets at this news.
You would think so. Acc. to Wikipedia (who knows if this is true):
Joseph Patrick Kennedy “Sr”—the patriarch
“ “ “ “Jr.”—the son who died in the war.
” “ “ “II”—son of RFK, former US congressman. Technically he would be III, wouldn’t he?
And this one is “III” but really should be “IV”. From what I can gather all of the Joes have Patrick for a middle name.
But Joe II is not the son of “Joe Jr”, he’s the son of
RFK. Maybe that is why this is?
For the record THIS Kennedy is a twin, born in 1980; his
brother is Matthew Rauch Kennedy. Joe II’s first wife
was Sheila Rauch...they got the marriage annulled. (Or at
least HE did.)
WTF is wrong with massachusetts? Howie Carr’s head must be exploding.
He’s running for Bawney’s seat?
Coakley campaigned as if the seat was her’s. Warren will have to visit the Brockton’s, Lawrence's, Roxbury’s and New Bedford’s promising more government handouts and dishing out more evil Republican scare stories often.
This will be a close race.
They would never protest at the homes of the Kennedys, or Michael Moore’s house, etc. They think the same. Also at least in the case of the former, Hyannisport is a bit out of the way while, say, Dewey Sq. Boston is easier for the TV stations and newspapers to get to. Would TV cover a protest by Tea Partiers next to the compound? Doubt it—and the cops would get rid of them right away. There would be no
Occupy Kennedy Compound for the tea party. (We wouldn’t
Story from from father, who used to live on the Cape: One day my Dad any my stepmother were out for a drive and someone in a car asked them where the Kennedy compound was.
“We’ll show you the way to it,” my dad said, and drove toward the Kennedy Compound. The car (I think he said it
had out of state license plates) stopped and a man got out;
blind or lame, and he was led to the fence. The man
put one hand on the fence, smiled, and turned to his
driver: “OK, let’s go.”
It was a shrine. Just to have touched the fence...this is
what it has come to.
Yes but this gives him material for columns and shows!
Currently his dad,
Cousin. But I got your point.
Actually the dad’s annulment was never finalized - and in fact was overturned - and his new marriage ceremony was civil. The dad cannot receive the sacraments due to his persistent public sin (living in sin when he is still in a sacramental marriage to Sheila Rauch).
Howie already talked about this.
There is always a Kennedy around here threatening to run for office. Always has been always will. It usually never happens.
FWIW his father was a one term congressman. The Kennedy thing in Massachusetts is way overblown.
But it’s their duty to go into “public service”. God, how I hate that term.
Some video and audio of him from 2010. That year he was considered a poss. candidate for the seats of Mike Capuano (the 8th, formerly held by JFK, Tip O’Neill, and Joe II)
or William Delahunt (10th), “should he retire”. (He did, and Bill Keating got the seat. This piece of video says that while Joe III was ruling out the run at that time (May 2010)
he wouldn’t rule it out for the future...

Maybe that's why, but also, since Joe Jr died in 1944 in the war, and Joe II was born in 1952 when Joe Sr was still alive, that made him Joe II.
If Joe Jr had survived the war, would Joe II have then been Joe III in 1952? I know it's a silly question for most FReepers, but it is intriguing to me.
Is this the one that Chavez has Citgo paying a consulting fee to or is it the older Joe?
I wonder if there will be hefty campaign contributions from Anheuser-Busch, Segrams, and Jack Daniels?
Ted will drink to that!
Attention: This is not even close to an anti-Irish sentiment. Every masshole, for reasons quite beyond me, seems to identify with the Ould Sod ... even a Jewish Old Sod like Barney Frank ... aka "The Bugger of Bayonne," (Ah 'tis a fine broth of a sodomite he is!) and John Kerry, Leader of the Faux Hibernian Club.
The local Kennedy Idolators practically had me run outa town when as a selectman during the JFK Naming Frenzy, I tried to have the town's new sewage treatment plant named after him. Reckon there was more massholes infesting Maine even then than I had accounted for!
BTW, the kid at least looks like he has a few more marbles than Patches, but then, that is a pretty dismal standard.
You instead of bringing CAMELOT, you will bring CAMEL DUNG.
Barney’s seat is wide open.
We should start a contest..guess the date that Pelosi first predicts that the Dems retake the HOuse and shee becomes Speaker again..
JoeIII would have been reserved for the spawn of JoeJr.
At least they stopped making Oldsmobiles.
>>it’s NO fun being in the minority in the House. That’s why so many Dems have retired
Exactly, very good point. Bill Delahunt (MA-10) retired in 2010 and this time around we see that Barney Frank (MA-4)
and John Olver (MA-1; he’s very old) are not running for
re-election. Redistricting—10 seats into 9—may have lead
Olver into his decision (before Frank made his) but indeed
the “no fun if GOP controls house” is HUGE.
When Michael Kennedy was accused of raping a 14 yr old babysitter, someone called in to Howie's show and sang, to the tune of Playground in my Mind by Clint Holmes:
My name is Michael
I am a Kennedy
Therefore there's no way
These charges can stand.
Michael met a fate similar to that of Sonny Bono: hit a tree while skiing. In the case of Michael, they were playing touch football at the time
>>the babysitter did not cooperate with prosecutors....Kennedy died at the end of 1997 in a skiing accident in Aspen, Colorado. He was playing ski-football with several other members of the Kennedy family when he hit a tree. Kennedy was not wearing a helmet or other safety equipment. Some have alleged that the family had been previously warned by the ski patrol to cease the activity. Others have noted that the ski patrol issued no such warnings.
That would be the lad’s dad, Joseph P Kennedy II, born 1952
(and now has a mane of white hair). This lad was born in ‘80.
So, the older Joe has the Hugo connection.
Just like European royalty, the inbreeding becomes more visually obvious with each generation.
So is this Fox 25 or Weasil Lips blog? Make up your mind.
If it’s Weasil Lips blog, put it in Bloggers. If it’s Fox 25, then correct the link.
I thought of Weasel Zippers as a news site, not a blog. It does quote from Fox 25 though.
Maybe we’ll, ya know, get lucky, ya know, and this one will turn out, ya know, to have all the eloquence, ya know, of Caroline Kennedy - doncha know.
Ah HA! So it was the ski patrol's fault.
< /sniff> I'm gettin' all choked up, reminds me of my visit to Dike Bridge.
Here’s a shortcut to avoid the blog:
Sorry, I can't add "Can't Count" to my list of Kennedy shortcomings in my tagline. Not enough room.
And Massachusetts swaps a turd burglar for Joe Kennedy III pronounced: "da Turd."
