I started this as an update to my last Caroline entry, but I thought it merits an entry of its own.

The pearls keep rolling off her tongue – and the ones revealing her cluelessness about democracy are my favorite.

After being surprised and dismayed by her own voting record and declaring she would only become senator by appointment, she answered the New York Times questions about education

in an area like education, where she has some expertise. Ms. Kennedy would not say, for example, whether she supported proposals to abolish tenure for teachers and offer them merit pay instead.“To pick out the most controversial one as a stand-alone thing, I don’t think that’s really the way to go about this,” Ms. Kennedy said. “People can vote; it’ll be really interesting to see what happens.

It would be really interesting your bratiness, except we don’t get to vote for – or rather against you. And you are an empty vessel to be used by the same puppeteers that install figureheads in the rest of the government.
