combating liberalism and other childish notions

Daddy’s little girl will not make like Uncle Teddy and Uncle Bobby (and Daddy too). Caroline says no. And now that Hillary is officially Secretary of State, there is an empty Senate seat to fill.

From the New York Post via Fox News:

caroline-kennedy1Caroline Kennedy has told Gov. David Paterson that she is withdrawing her name from consideration to replace outgoing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in the U.S. Senate, The Post has learned.

Kennedy cited “personal reasons,” according to sources.

Her stunning move comes as sources revealed that Paterson had intended to appoint her to the now-vacant seat today.

The 51-year-old Camelot daughter’s decision removes the highest-profile name in the ring to step into Clinton’s seat, as she departs after getting confirmed as President Obama’s Secretary of State today.

The surprise decision leaves a crowded field of about 15 people, mostly elected officials, vying to replace Clinton — including Long Island Rep. Steve Israel, Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, upstate Rep. Kirstin Gillibrand and Rep. Carolyn Maloney.

A lib is a lib of course, of course …

In other news, I found that missing two-dollar bill I’d been looking for. It was between Pages 74 and 75 of my first edition copy of “See I Told You So” by Rush Limbaugh.

Also, Kermit the Frog’s voice has never sounded right since Jim Hensen passed away.
