    • The Flynn Pardon Is The Right Thing To Do + Mishandling Russia
      So, Michael Flynn has been pardoned by Trump. His crime was lying to the FBI about talking to the Russians before Trump was inaugurated. Even a man like Trump can do the right thing occasionally, usually for the wrong reasons. It is entirely reasonable and routine for a President-elect’s advisors to talk to foreign governments. […]

Today on “Dynasty”

Caroline Kennedy, Oprah Winfrey

Ruh-Roh!  From the NY Post:

The odds of Gov. Paterson choosing Caroline Kennedy to replace soon-to-be Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in the US Senate are no better than 20-1, a source close to the governor said yesterday.

The source was responding to news that Sen. Ted Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and other family members have been pushing hard for Caroline to replace Clinton.


Among other candidates said more likely to be chosen by the governor are Attorney General Andrew Cuomo or either US Rep. Carolyn Maloney of Manhattan or Kirsten Gillibrand of Hudson, a favorite of the state’s senior senator, Charles Schumer.


A Democratic source said Clinton would be dead-set against seeing Caroline take her seat.

“Why would she want to see that seat go to someone who essentially double-crossed her?” the source said, noting the Kennedy family’s endorsement of Obama in the primary. “It’s a nightmare scenario for her.”

But she’s a Kennedy!  SHE’S ENTITLED!

What will Governor Paterson do?  Tune in to the next episode of “Dynasty

  1. I had this in post down below:

    there’s a new contender for Hillary Clinton’s vacant Senate seat – the TV nanny with the braying laugh. Fran Drescher has gone public with her bid for Governor Paterson’s appointment as the replacement senator from New York.

    I want a Cadillac Escalde or a Mercedes “S” class. I don’t think I’m going to get either one though.

  2. Hillary is working for Obama and she has a problem with Caroline?


  3. I think I’ll put my money on Chuck Schumer’s choice.

  4. I so hope the Gov doesn’t “appoint” her. I would prefer Cuomo if the only woman who has a chance getting appointed is CKS. We don’t need to keep the seat for an unqualified woman when we have so many qualified ones. I generally support Paterson, but this would seal the deal for me. He would lose it all.

  5. I am so happy Paterson doesn’t care about bowing to Ted Kennedy. Looks like he actually cares about his state enough to put some excellent choices on his short list.

    Carolyn Maloney!!! Puleeez!!!

  6. I just walked through our main entrance and they had CNN on the teevee. They had feed of Caroline speaking at some podium, with a banner “Developing Story” and the crawl saying: Will Caroline Kenedy take Hillary’s Senate seat?

    Above the crawl was the title “Caroline’s Decision.”

    What freekin’ decision? It isn’t hers to make.


  7. Madamab — Since you are in the heart of the City, who would you recommend for Hillary’s replacement? Maybe we could all get behind her.

  8. Alwaysthinking…madamab wants Carolyn Maloney, per her comment above. 🙂

  9. Gov. Paterson is a bit of a legacy himself. He is the son of Basil Paterson, who is a player in NY politics (New York Senate, etc.). Gov. Paterson put his time in and has been in politics his entire life. I am not sure that he will be pressured by Ted Kennedy and I am not sure that he will be impressed by Caroline’s good deeds. He knows who the players in NY politics are and he wants the best for NY. If Obama and Cllinton get into the picture, however, he probably would be turned.

  10. PS – I put my two cents in on this debate over at Blue Lyon, if ya’ll like to check it out:

    Carolyn, Not Caroline

  11. bluelyon– writing while someone else is talking (oh, well….

  12. no worries AT.

  13. She’s too passive for Alexis, does resemble Krystal a little, but not glamorous enough. KInda of an older Sammy Jo, I think. Didn’t Sammy Jo start out nice, turn out bad?

    One of the bottom lines this year is that Dems seem to be such ordinary, feeding-at-the-trough, I’ll get mine politicians. Would a Caroline appt simply be a payback for scratching Obama’s back? It would appear so.

    The thing I resent about Caroline is that she wants to stay above the fray. Nice work if you can get it, but she hasn’t worked for this. I still say we need a figurehead monarchy in this country, where the Obamas and some Kennedys, etc can travel the world making pretty speeches and looking good, while the Hillarys serve as POTUS and get things done.

  14. Puma SF, not sure how much the guy who wrote the article knows as Bloomberg’s name hasn’t come up that I’ve heard and I really doubt he would want to be a Freshman Senator, lol!~ Quinn was rumored to run for mayor until Bloomberg got the third term run okayed. She may wait and run when he’s done.


    You can click on my name to go to my site, then click the petition link in the second box down from the top on the right.

  16. okay…madamab. I signed one petition but I think I missed yours. I will sign! (Have been out of touch for a few days — family, you know…)

  17. Done signed, Madamab! (uuugh, I said “done,” my hated mis-use of the English language.) Sorry I missed your petition…been tied up like most people this season — with caring for a mentally-ill brother and a none-too-healthy husband, a daughter in a third-world country working for the US, and a son who has been laid off in this economy. C’est la vie, though, we must forge ahead in our fight for equality!

  18. The only thing Caroline is, is a freekingly rich hereiss. Her publish work is what: a cook booK? Or is that a Children Book? And that is supposed to qualify her to vote on economic bailout packages, among other things.

    Are we still in a Democracy, or did I just wake up in another century???

  19. Somebody tell me, is Teresaa a troll?

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the Gov. does the right thing!!! Kennedy is a princess, the real dillatant that those Obots were claiming about Hillary. Clinton clawed her way. She earned every vote here in New York. Even before she was a Senator, she fought for women and children’s rights. What has C. Kennedy done of social value? NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!! She has to have her teenage son tell her who to vote for! Appointing her, will give the seat to Giuliani in 2 years. Petterson is smarter than that, hopefully.

  20. One of her books is about the Bill of Rights. It’s for grown-ups but still not a qualification for Senator. Obama’s books about himself apparently qualified him for Prez though.

  21. KendallJ:

    Teresaa only hates Hillary on days that end in “Y”

  22. I want a cutout of CKS with two beer guzzling guys groping her. This will prove just how this is really ok with everybody.
    Just saying

  23. Teresaa,

    You sound like a broken record. Grow up.

  24. It’s fine if CK becomes Senator-but only after an election.
    Not because she chose Biden as VP.

  25. Myiq .. ROTFMAO .. !!

    “Teresaa only hates Hillary on days that end in “Y”
    Myiq2xu on Dec. 8, 7:22 pm … lol .. too funny.

  26. myiq2xu,

    I’m not sure why you’re pushing this story so hard, but it’s just not gonna happen, IMHO.

  27. We already have a candidate who has led on women’s issues.

    Rep. Carolyn Maloney is my choice – she has taken the lead on issues involving violence against women, and is a great feminist replacement for Hillary.

    No to Caroline and the dynasty.

  28. I don’t understand why teresaa is being excoriated for asking what seems a legitimate question. why would Senator Clinton have a problem with the woman who supported Obama when Senator Clinton is about to become a part of the Obama administration?

    some who supported Senator Clinton and voted for her are disappointed and angry with her joining what they see as the “enemy”.

    Actually I thought that being a PUMA was all about being against Obama. If Senator Clinton is a “part” of the Obama Administration where does that put her?

    Is it “Clinton hating” to ask such things here now?

    I don’t “hate” Senator Clinton. But I don’t respect her as I once did. Does that make me a “Clinton hater” too?

  29. So, the question is, will Obama embrace the Entitlement that the Kennedy’s feel, even though those type of claiimes was the opposite he campaigned on. Even Billie Boy Richardson got in on that gig.

    Really, that must be what it is. The nerve that the Kennedy’s would be presuring to place in someone who has been working in arts and writing as a Senator, because they feel she is ENTITLED as long as she wears the name KENNEDY! Quick Daryl Hanna, claim you married her brother secretly before he wed the other and you too can claim to be a Kennedy and have a seat in the Senate.

    I’d rather go with Joan Jett!

  30. Fuckity-fucksticks!

    My local news station just reported that CK is “on the verge” of being named to replace Hillary.

    Who is pushing this story in the media???

  31. Thank you “madamab”.
    Unfortunately I heard Paterson is softening to the un-qualified
    Caroline & Bloomberg “echoed” it!

  32. Kenosha:

    Teresaa shows up almost every day bashing Hillary.

    We’ve grown weary of it even though we allow it.

  33. For Caroline Kennedy to push for the appointment is embarrassing. For Ted and Bobby Kennedy to endorse the appointment for the senate seat is disgusting.
