Remember how Vanity Fair said Caroline Kennedy's kids made her stop running for Senate, and we were all "nuh uh"? She went on the TV to prove us right!
Not that any public statement this woman makes on her disastrous senate "run" can be believed, but on Today today the Princess of Camelot said "nonsense" to charges that Rose and whatever the others ones are named push her around.
"Anybody who knows my children and knows me knows that that is absolute nonsense," said Ms. Kennedy, who was appearing to promote this year's winners of the Profile in Courage Award, founded to honor her father, former President John F. Kennedy.
"All in all, it was a great experience for me," Ms. Kennedy added. "I know you may find that hard to believe, but I met a lot of interesting people, I saw, you know, how much there is to do."
And when asked what had driven her to withdraw abruptly in January, Ms. Kennedy deflected the question.
"That was the right decision," Ms. Kennedy said, adding, "When you make the right decision, it doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks."
And when faced with a question on David Paterson, the guy who embarrassed the nation by jerking around a woman who thought she was entitled to be appointed to a Senate seat for no reason in particular, she was all annoyed! "As I said, I've moved on, I'm looking on to, you know, what I can to, and hopefully I will be able to be, you know, courageous in my future services," she said. And then she bit Matt Lauer's face off and the world rejoiced. Except she was appearing via remote so that didn't actually happen.
Anyway, breaking, Paterson and the press are still the actual real-life reasons Caroline gave up the Senate thing.
