Report: Caroline Kennedy to Be Named Ambassador to Japan
Weekly Standard ^

Posted on 04/01/2013 5:28:56 AM PDT by Perdogg

Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of President John F. Kennedy, will be nominated to be the next ambassador to Japan, the Washington Post reports.

"Looks like there will be a Camelot East — make that Far East: Caroline Kennedy is heading to Tokyo to be the U.S. ambassador. Kennedy, whose support for President Obama during his 2008 campaign was seen as crucial, had been widely talked about as a candidate for the plum diplomatic post, but now things have apparently been firmed up," reports the Post.

“You know, this is big, you know.”

One wonders, you know, if the Japanese, you know, know what the expression you know means, you know?

(The Japanese will be getting a brilliant, intensely superior, intellectual genius as an ambassador from the U.S., you know?) /s/

IMHO

She's so painfully stupid, even for a Kennedy, that she poses no threat go the Obama's

Well, everything about the Obama administration is mediocre at best, so, why not Caroline? She'll represent mediocrity very well. Question is, why wasn't she considered to be ambassador to Libya? Women's equality would demand it.

Hopefully, this will be the last we hear about that "Camelot" nonsense.

Her first statement to the host government:

“On behalf of — you know — America, I offer a — you know — sincere apology — you know — for my Dad’s PT boat getting the way of the Japanese Imperial Navy’s destroyer during the — you know — War Against American Aggression.”

Considering the depth of the problems between China and Japan right now concerning manufacturing, currency, arms, the islands in dispute, N Korea and Kim’s bellicosity, and Japan’s economic debacle, I can’t imagine a worse pick other than, perhaps, Ashley Judd.

This isn’t the Court of St. James and Obama is making a huge mistake regardless of how competent the real ambassodor “under” the Clinton kid is.

We have a celebrity president being run by the DNC and now, apparently, The Real Housewives of NY is going live worldwide.

I’m diggin the bunker deeper.

Time to revive the Kennedy Kult Klan.

That was my immediate thought when I read the headline. But I think you may have left out a few: “Wells and I means.”

When I listen to liberals answering questions they ALWAYS begin with: “Well, ...I mean, ...you know.”

Greaaaat! If true, then they would be appointing a certified trust fund baby moron of the first order. Appointing to a rather important embassy station regarding N.Korea, russkies and chicoms (oh, excuuuuse me, the repuuublic of China LOL).

She should take her interior decorator husband out to the beach in MA and just STFU. Please, Dear Lord. The kenyan’s
last pimping hope for the demo machine, and putting us in physical harms way as war looms.

Rather like appointing her Grandad at the time to the Court of St. James— them needing a bootlegger pro-Nazi to have “diplomatic” (and other LOL) relations with the upper crust Fabian socialists of Great Britain, and the Duke of Windsor erstwhile king and his freaky deaky druggie American divorcee wife.
Obamaumao continuing FREAK show. John Kerry is ON the job, though!!

You’re right, I should “lighten up”, because as you have so clearly shown, making fun of others is such a cleaver and witty way to show one’s genetic superiority.

Sadly, that is the only qualification for most ambassadors, both Republican and Democrat. Do you remember some of the fools that prior presidents had as ambassadors?

With respect to the Caroline Kennedy / Kim Kardashian comparisons, I'd say that's an insult -- to Kardashian. As vapid as Kardashian is, you at least have to admit she made her own name and earned her own money. Kennedy is more like Khloe Kardashian -- famous simply for being in the right family and not good for much else.

Of course. I’m just annoyed that Obama is deflecting attention, AGAIN, with more newz-junk that the State Media will flog for the entire week.

Government by Snooki and JWOW.

Forget about those economic figures this week, or NK, or anything else that is remotely germane to the survival of this country.

Ruh Roh!! Damn funny post tomkat.

But, really:

Just imagine the little idiot caroline with her well known diminished language/mental capacity of her own, speaking with Japanese officials. “Ya know” a hundred times translated to Japanese? Gotta tell you..repeating that phrase (as a translater would do officially) is an INSULT to a Japanese person. Seriously, been there, done that.

“oh give me rand lot’s of rand under stolly skies above..”

Fact is, that while they might like moron rock stars for ambassadors—the language joke/observation is quite pertinent on top of all the added BS of “camer...rot” thrust into a critical defense partner of SEATO (in re: N. Korea client state of Chicoms).

Start with “Shogun”... (let’s ask caroline to get her 2nd Amendment re-pRY).

Soggieoreo. Gomenasai.

Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of President John F. Kennedy, will be nominated to be the next ambassador to Japan, the Washington Post reports.

A pulse, lack of felony convictions, and she's smarter than goldfish (but not by much.) Not common traits among Kennedy remnants.
