Um… okay. Whatever.
Now I don’t care who gets the Senate seat in New York, but the celebrity angle embodied in Caroline Kennedy wanting the job wouldn’t be so insulting if she didn’t speak like, you know, some teenager trying to figure out how to, um… well, you know, lie her way through a job interview.
A random excerpt from the interview itself on why Caroline Kennedy thinks she is qualified:
CK: Well, it is up to the governor to decide, and it is up to the governor to decide what’s best for New York. You know, I think that I could advocate for New York, I think that we are losing a very visible, very strong, very powerful advocate in Hillary Clinton, and I think it’s to New York’s advantage to have somebody who can, you know, bring attention to New York, you know, bring four people from The New York Times here to the coffee shop (laughter) and really put that to work for average people. This is not, you know, about me, it’s about what I can do to, you know, help New York get its fair share, help working families, travel the state, bring attention to what is going on up there. So that’s why I think I would be good.
