  •  Wasn't Markos' point about Caroline Kennedy (0+ / 0-)

    that it was objectionable to appoint her to the position on the basis of her name and little else? Robin Carnahan doesn't have that problem.

    I would have argued that her brother Russ would, but he's actually turned into a pretty good congressman.

    •  Nope. (0+ / 0-)

      Markos' point, expressed yesterday and previously, is that all political dynasties suck and he hates them.

      Nothing about appointments, nothing about Kennedys in particular.  Simply that he hates the idea of someone holding office if that person has a relative who previously held office.

      John McCain, you are _not_ my friend.

      •  Kos said he hates dynasties (0+ / 0-)

        in the context of quoting someone else discussing why Caroline Kennedy probably shouldn't get the Senate seat.

        •  Nope. (0+ / 0-)

          Markos has made this point before well before this Senate seat became vacant, and his diary from yesterday is quite clear.  It has nothing to do with Kennedy, or any details of this particular case:

          I hate political dynasties. Hate them.

          It's quite clear Markos feels about political dynasties as Gollum feels about Hobbits.  Except, of course, when he doesn't.  It'd odd, and I'm curious what happened to change his mind overnight.

          John McCain, you are _not_ my friend.
