As if I needed one more reason to hate the Kennedys ...
I've been watching the documentary "Taking on the Kennedys" about Kevin Vigilante's run against Patrick Kennedy for Rhode Island Congressman. I really wish Vigilante had won because Patrick, like the rest of his corrupt drunkard sexually assaulting lobotomizing family, is total crap. Of course he had a few extensive operations, but I think his appearance of being mentally handicapped is purely genetic.
I also wish Vigilante had won because he tried to play so fair. ("She asked me if I had ever used marijuana. I said yes. What was I going to do, lie?") Yeah, Hillary.
My ex recently told me that when we met he was intimidated because I was so Hillary Clinton-esque. This probably explains why our break-up was inevitable.
Why not Teresa Heinz Kerry - cultured, multilingual? Or Angelina Jolie - hot, UN Ambassador? Ok, I may be neither of the above, but I also don't have a butch blonde haircut and a philandering husband. And no matter how many times it behooves me to do it, I play fair.
Crunching conundrums, blasting boredom, eliciting criticism, languishing while laughing, blaming poetry (and/or the lack of) for all of my choices, leaving it to the stars or the people better equipped to handle it, cackling at catastrophe and saying sayanora to sourpusses and sore losers
