#rsrh Kennedy clan shuffles out new zombie scion.

In case you missed it: Joseph Kennedy III is running for office in Barney Frank’s soon to be former district (Frank is kind-of, sort-of threatening an endorsement). Kennedy, of course, didn’t have the guts to run in Rep. Delahunt’s suddenly-open seat last cycle; guess he figures that he has a better chance this go-round.

I should be nicer; it’s not this kid’s fault, strictly speaking, that his family history simultaneously smooths the way for a career in politics and makes Kennedy look exceptional for managing to avoid too-public exhibitions of substance abuse. I should, but I probably will not. Contrary to Kennedy mythology, not having one in MA politics is not a violation of the Commonwealth’s constitution…

    It’s *sooo* tempting to make an Oasis* joke here… the red hair, the fact that he looks like earlier Kennedy clones…

    I think it’s the voters of MA who are the zombies: “Must…vote…Kennedy…”.

    Are you sure? I mean, have you taken a good hard look at MA’s constitution?
