A fresh Kennedy kid is trying to decide if the fate of the Republic depends on offering himself for service in America's high councils.
He's Joe . He says he's earned Barney Frank's seat because, in part, of his "experience." Said experience consists of a tax-paid vacation in the Peace Corps and fully 30 months as county prosecutor. Take that, Iran!
Yes, Joe is one of those Kennedys, and in a properly governed nation that would be automatically disqualifying. Consanguinity, however slight, should be sufficient to complete the offense.
