The Dynasty Lives

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.

Are there voters still impressed by candidates who claim years of college and a J.D. as experience?

We need more candidates who have lived paycheck to paycheck, made (and kept to) a household budget, or created a spending plan for a small business and tiptoed thru the multi-layered minefields of local, state and federal regulations.

THAT's experience to me.

Loosening your tie, rolling up the sleeves on your white shirt, putting on a gimme cap and pitching a few forkfuls of manure while the camera flashes go off does not mean anything to me!

Pitch out the whole barn and we'll talk.
