I always thought the clan after the RFK and JFK were self-absorbed, greedy douchebags; much like the Baby Boomer generation that idolized them.

I preferred them as bootleggers.  It's honest work.

One guy is the Kennedy dynasty now? What about the other guy,  you know the one who is an actual elected official?

This deeply saddens me.

It was John Kennedy that put us on a crash course with the Moon, and kickstarted space science as more than just an odd little sideshow in the US.

How far the family has fallen.

thurstonxhowell: I disagree. The reason for it is always stupidity. Just plain old "ass or a hole in the ground?" stupidity.

Agreed, but there is a difference in the stupidity

Left-Winged Anti-Vaxxers tend to float conspiracies about coverups, profit mongering by the Big Pharma, and the toxin gambits.
Right-Wingers tend to float "Personal Freedom" BS and the Religious crap.

Arkanaut: Headline:  The Kennedy dynasty ...
TFA: Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

But I'm sure every family member shares identical political beliefs, which they hash out over Thanksgiving dinner.

RFK has been a nutbag for several years.

IIRC, he's the guy that tried to get the TDAP and MMR vaccines banned by the FDA.

Gulper Eel: Bobby Jr. is also big on the no-nukes-anywhere-because-TSUNAMI stoopid circuit, but the greens in Westchester still hit their knees for him.

Those are no  moons greens; those are space stations NIMBYs.

WTF Indeed: I always thought the clan after the RFK and JFK were self-absorbed, greedy douchebags; much like the Baby Boomer generation that idolized them.

Baby Boomers are truly history's greatest monsters.

That's about as true, and defensible, as "gay marriage threatens my marriage."
