So now we have an N.R.A. handmaiden in Bobby Kennedy’s old seat? Kirsten Gillibrand, a k a Tracy Flick, accepting the honor with her Republican pal Al D’Amato beside her on stage? Gross.
This is what passes for opinion these days? Talk about catty.
Then the Democrats would have had another Kennedy in the Senate representing New York — Bobby’s niece and a smart, policy-oriented, civic-minded woman to whom the president feels deeply indebted in an era when every state has its hand out.
I just don’t know if, like, you know, Caroline Kennedy was, like, the right person, you know, to represent New York in the Senate.
Instead they have Gillibrand, who voted against the Wall Street — as in New York — bailout bill. And who introduced a bill to balance the federal budget annually, which suggests she would oppose the $825 billion in deficit spending that President Obama proposes to rescue the country, not least New York.
Like I said, I’m liking these blue dog Democrats a lot better than Republicans these days. She’s against having my tax money go to bail out rich bankers in New York City? I should remember to send her a Christmas card next year.
