'NY Post' Vindicated On Kennedy Story
Man, last night all the haters were hating on thePost for breaking the astonishing news that the nice rich lady with important friends had decided not to demand a lifelong appointment to the House of Lords after all. Well, now your precious MSM liberal gray lady of record, theNew York Times,says the same thing, so it's official: Caroline Kennedy will be roasted and eaten by David Paterson, with mint jelly, for lunch.
Kennedy released a statement that sounded pretty goddamn definitive:
“I informed Governor Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate,” Ms. Kennedy said in a statement released by her public relations firm.
TheTimesalso cites a very credible source known as "a person who spoke to [Caroline Kennedy]" who says that "her concerns about the health of her uncle ... contributed to her decision." This makes zero sense, of course, but sounds better than "she knew that if she stayed in this thing any longer and got passed over, the worse her chances would be for actually running for office and winning in a few years."
