The unfortunately named Fredric Dicker, a scrivener who writes for the authoritative New York Post is asserting in his column that “ Despite claims that he's still undecided, Gov. Paterson is ‘certain’ to pick Caroline Kennedy to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton in the US Senate, several unhappy contenders for the job have told friends and associates in recent days. ‘
Morose contenders, says Dicker, “based their conclusion on the view that Paterson, after nearly two months of indecision, would ‘greatly embarrass’ and 'entirely humiliate' Kennedy, anger her prominent political family and even offend President-elect Barack Obama by picking someone other than President John F. Kennedy's daughter.”
Corruption busting Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, viewed by some Democrat accomplices in the media as lacking the experience to preside over the sleep inducing senate as Vice President, no doubt is preparing a congratulatory note to the inexperienced Caroline.
There are also emotional and aesthetic reasons why Paterson should choose Caroline, whose uncle, the renowned Sen. Ted Kennedy, will soon be begging admittance at Heaven’s gate: His soul will rest easy knowing that -- Camelot lives!
And Caroline's elevation to the US Senate will scotch forever the notion that one needs experience to be a US senator, good riddens to it.
