  1. Nice picture. Is Chris Kennedy as fat as his late uncle,
    “Chappaquiddik Ted” Kennedy, the lady-killer?
    An up-to-date photo like this is what the media should use, instead of the usual college grad “file photo” they continue reprinting for forty years. Do we want this east-coast carpetbagger as our governor?
    Those who criticize Governor Rauner should remember that Bruce EARNED his own fortune, he didn’t inherit it like members of the Kennedy clan, whose family bankroll came from some very questionable “business” activities.

  2. And that IS the problem, Clint.
    For years, the leftist media treated the Kennedy family as “America’s Royalty,” until the disclosures of John F. Kennedy’s perpetual womanizing, Ted’s drunken antics while a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, and the reckless conduct of their offspring got some of them killed in stupid accidents, revealed how risky it is to elect any of them to ANY public office.
    Remember Ted, and Chris Dodd, both Senators, and the “waitress sandwich” incident?
    And John F. Jr. (“John-John”) who the liberal media was promoting as the future presidential candidate, who crashed his plane into the sea?
    The media thought “John-John” could WALK on water, but apparently he couldn’t FLY over it.
