Caroline Kennedy

Same as Leona Helmsley? Mrs. Helmsley, you'll recall, was once quoted as saying that paying taxes were for the little people.

Ms. Kennedy is apparently cut from the same cloth; she's famously refusing to disclose anything whilst she campaigns for the appointment to the Senate. The further you read this article, the shadier her finances seem.

Frankly, Ms. Kennedy has only one thing to offer – the Kennedy name. Without that, she has nothing that makes her a plausible pick. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

Well, other than a sense of entitlement that's probably bigger than even New York.

Somebody remind me again about how Sarah Palin was unqualified to be Vice President, because she was only Governor of Alaska? But Caroline Kennedy is qualified for an appointment to a safe Democratic seat?
