Newsmax ^ | 12/24/2012 | Newsmax

Ted Kennedy Jr. is seriously considering a run for the US Senate seat of John Kerry if, as expected, the Massachusetts senator becomes Secretary of State.

Kennedy's brother, former Rhode Island Rep. Patrick Kennedy, told the Boston Globe that leading Democrats, including Senator Charles Schumer of New York, want his brother to consider a campaign to replace Kerry and hold the seat for Democrats.

Seriously, the Kennedys are like drunken, coke snorting, babysitter molesting, adulterous cockroaches that drive off bridges. You get rid of one, and another one pops up. What has Teddy Jr. ever done to deserve being in the US Senate, other than having an obese drunk philanderer father who was there for 50 years? When will these people ever go away?

I assume the Massachusetts voters will go for it. After all, the seat does belong to the Kennedy clan...

Do I need a sarcasm tag?

Let’s face it...it is Senator-Elect Ted Kennedy Jr. It is that way now, and it will be that way after idiots hand $10-20 million over to Scott Brown. Why bother? Just forget it.

In my opinion, the Kennedys are God’s curse on America.

We can’t expect much out of MA voters but I’ll still take Brown over a Kennedy anyday.

He will have to work on his drinking skills and murder skills.

He has the last name Kennedy.

And he has an enormous head.

Not much of a brain, but having a big skull and outsized head does seem to be a qualification for the job.

At least it didn't hurt his father any.

Enough! The only thing that the Kennedys have going for them is name recognition and a fawning media that falls over itself for ANY news at all about a Kennedy or a cousin, neice or nephew.

Thin resume, environmentalist, night school law grad, now runs a consulting firm he started with family money. The firm advises companies how to grease Democrat politicians on health & tax issues.

Just the smarts to represent voters in a liberal eastern state. Will listen to Obama Admin talking points & vote accordingly.

Please! No more rat-faced Kennedys gracing the already evil political spectrum.

Camelot was a musical and certainly didn’t describe the evil that was going on in the White House.

The Kennedys were, and are, an ignorant gaggle of imbeciles. Caroline is a perfect example.

The drunken, fat asshat uncle was a serial rapist much like Billy Goat Clinton.

They can’t find anything to do with their time so they enter the corrupt political system.

The Kennedy family is a criminal enterprise that specializes in politics and nonprofit organizations.
