Audio from Caroline Kennedy's media interviews: 'Uh, You know, You know,You know, Uh, You know,You know,'Topics: Political News and commentaries
Far from being an orator, Caroline Kennedy makes Harry Reid sound almost charismatic (Video counts the uhs and you knows).
Excerpts from the DAILY NEWS:
... A defiant Caroline Kennedy says she "wouldn't be beholden to anybody" - including Mayor Bloomberg - if she's picked to become New York's next U.S. senator.No problem, she's a Kennedy and a Democrat, so whatever she says, isn't, does, doesn't do or say, and how she says it is just fine for the adoring Dems and their media. Besides, Harry Reid is looking forward to having a worse orator in the Senate.
"I'm really coming into this as somebody who isn't, you know, part of the system, who obviously, you know, stands for the values of, you know, the Democratic Party," Kennedy told the Daily News Saturday during a wide-ranging interview.
"I know how important it is to, you know, to be my own person. And, you know, and that would be obviously true with my relationship with the mayor."
... Criticized for ignoring reporters after her name surfaced as a possible Clinton replacement, Kennedy sat down with the media this weekend. Displaying her notorious shyness during the 30-minute chat, the mother of three, author and public education advocate was pleasant, but spoke softly and rarely made eye contact. Her speech was often punctuated with extra "you knows" and "ums."
... "Andrew is, you know, highly qualified for this job," she said. "He's doing a, you know, a great job as attorney general, and we've spoken throughout this process."
... "You know, I think, you know, we're sort of, uh, sharing some of this experience. And um, as I've said, he was a friend, a family member, and um so, and uh obviously, he's, you know, he's also had an impressive career in public office."
... "It's really, you know, it's not about just the Kennedy name," she said. "It's about my own work and what I've done with those values."
Am I the only American damned tired of dynasty politics?
