Keeping it in the family

I don’t normally blog about politics, but this is just draw dropping.

Apparently there is a battle in NY to determine whether Andrew Cuomo or Caroline Kennedy will replace Hilary Clinton, who is moving from the Senate to the administration of the President Elect replacing George Bush and whose own Senate seat may be filled by the appointment of Jesse Jackson Jr.

When did nepotism become so chic in this country?

And where are voices of those who supposedly speak truth to power?

  1. Matt makes a very good that nepotism in the American government does go way back.

    But in this election it seems to have run rampant. Also, the two Senate appoints are exactly that, appointments. The nepotistic beneficiaries don’t even have stand for election until the next cycle.
