Let’s just call it what it is: the natural fallout when you’re a member of a family riddled with entitled, underachieving drunks, drug addicts and adulterers, whose treatment of women is historically deplorable.If nothing else, turning this gaggle of riff raff into a kind of uncrowned American royalty reveals a singularly appalling flaw in the country’s imagination – exacerbated, as always, by the compliant, partisan media.
Although, in truth, I wonder if the family actually qualifies as a dynasty any longer. I believe there are very few Kennedy’s holding office these days, and none whom anyone is seriously talking up as a future figure of national interest. No doubt, a Kennedy can still probably win election in Massachusetts or in some nearby liberal hell-hole with relative ease; however, with respect to national appeal, the brand seems to have been damaged beyond repair. Maybe, one day, a blood member of the family will even turn Republican ( stranger things have happened).
