A Wealthy Vagina

Caroline Kennedy would like to be appointed to fill Sen. Hillary Clinton’s soon to be vacant US Senate seat. The daughter and only surviving child of Pres. John F. Kennedy has set aside her famously private ways, which she had maintained since her father’s assassination in 1963, and has now expressed a strong desire to serve in the US Senate.

This formerly private scion of the Kennedy dynasty has gained some significant support.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is reported to have urged New York Gov. David Paterson to appoint Caroline Kennedy to the Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Clinton. Sen. Reid is said to believe in Caroline Kennedy’s qualifications to serve as a US Senator.

Just what qualifications is Senator Reid thinking of?

According to Gov. Patterson, Caroline Kennedy Paterson is a strong potential candidate whose appointment would keep a woman in the seat and whose personal connections would allow her to raise the roughly $70 million required to hold the seat in the coming years.

So, since Mrs. Kennedy’s previous endeavors have been largely outside the political arena – with the exception of the Barack Obama campaign – and since she has no legislative or executive experience, it seems that her real qualifications are her genitalia and her access to wealth.

Isn’t this exactly the same sort of gynocentric sexism and pandering that the Feminists and the rest of the Liberals so vehemently accused Sen. McCain and the GOP of committing during the 2008 elections with the nomination of Gov. Sarah Palin as their Vice-Presidential candidate? With Mrs. Kennedy having no track record for supporting or advancing what are normally considered women’s issues, and with her having by far and away less experience than the much maligned Gov. Palin, the thinking American would expect to hear hue and cry from the various significant feminist groups and PACs.

The thinking American who expected such outrage from the Feminists would apparently be wrong.

Despite the National Organization for Women (NOW) and the Feminist Majority having previously jointly endorsed Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY)  to take Sen. Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat, both groups have been very close to silent on the topic of Caroline Kennedy being given that seat. They do not act as if they are particularly bothered by Maloney, a woman with well over 23 years of experience as a legislator, being possibly sidelined in favor of another woman with little experience beyond that of a NYC socialite.

Given their silence, if Gov. Palin continues in the political limelight will these feminist organizations still malign her as a politician and a woman? Given these feminist groups’ silence on Kennedy, will anyone still listen to them if do continue to insult and denigrate Gov. Palin in the future?

    You really are a sick divisive hateful bigot.

  2. jonolan Says:

    Was that vitriol in response to this post, or was it just a generalized indictment?

  3. TRO Says:

    That’s the best argument he has, Jonolan. Which, of course, is no argument at all. The left knows it cannot attack conservative ideas rationally so they resort to irrational hatred and intolerance for any view other than their own. Thus the name-calling because if you can denigrate the person making the argument you don’t have to worry about the argument itself. It’s the easy way out. What was patriotic dissent under a Republican Administration is now divisive and bigoted under a Democratic one. Funny how that works.

  4. jonolan Says:

    Quite true, TRO – at least in the case of these Leftists who argue via insult instead of actual argument. Just remember that they’re not all like that; some of those on the Left are quite intelligent and skilled at both argument and Liberal Apologetics.

    In partial support of Bruce, couldnt you have titled your post something like …”A wealthy socialite” or “pretty face, old money”. The genitalia reference is quite frankly upsetting and opens you up to all sorts of labels including the one’s that bruce correctly ascribed to you (not in a general manner but in respect of this particular post). Whatever Ms Kennedy is, frankly she is more than just her genitalia!

    Bigpunisher, welcome aboard.

    I’m afraid I must to some extent disagree with you. So far the only two (2) “qualifications” for the US Senate that anyone has acknowledged that Mrs. Kennedy possesses is her gender and her access to wealth.

    Why shy from speaking the truth because it might offend a few people? Especially when the truth itself is offensive.

    Within the context of Mrs. Kennedy being given Hillary Clinton’s vacated Senate seat, all she is is a “wealthy vagina” since the man who will make the decision has stated that the criteria for appointment are being female and having enough wealth to fund future campaigns.

    Is Mrs. Kennedy more than that? I believe she is; she’s done a lot of good for the NYC school system’s funding over the years. Is she being treated as more than a “wealthy vagina” by the Dems? I don’t believe so and I’m somewhat shocked and disappointed that the Feminist organizations aren’t screaming about it.
