Was like a sack of potatos on The Colbert Show and her speaking voice is tres annoying.
John-John got all the good genes
Excuse me miss, but I am QUEEN of the Potatoes.
Rumer "Spud" Willis
How many times did she say "ya know?"
tres annoying? Now, that''s really annoying. %0D
"John-john got all the good genes".\
You got that right.
The Agnelli Family
Why does she bother?\
It is obvious that she does not want to bother, and yet she still does. \
No one else can "carry on" the Kennedy myth? No one?
She never did have an ounce of charisma. She always seemed anemic. Polite but DULL.
I have been associated with her in a professional sitation and she is very bright, polite and funny and can be a bit off color now and then but does she have loads of charisma? No. She has the rep for being a kind and loyal person -but if you don''t know her very well do not mention her family, unless that''s the topic of conversation (re:book proposal, etc) %0D\
She is who she is and that is significant to some people. She is an active patron of the arts and works hard for her causes. She can still draw lots of money and cache to a cause. Is she suited for the media? No. Not really.
Ugly fake bitch.
One of the funniest things in politics was her potential appointment as senator. She was on her "listening tour" in upstate New York. The news filmed her running AWAY from people because she didn''t want to talk to them. She was wearing one of those floor length frau coats that looks like a comforter. RUNNING. It was fucking hilarious.
OP, that''s MiISS Mrs. Kennedy Sloutchturd to you.
I liked her up until the time she sorta ran for the Senate. She just thought she could waltz on through just because of her name. She had absolutely no answer to give as to why she thought she was qualified to be a Senator. Not as smart as she''s reputed to be.
Charisma? No. Big Bucks? Oh yeah. You can''t have everything.
Didn''t it turn out that she hadn''t voted in years?
I think she gets much more credit than she deserves because of who she is. Her books, for instance, are a joke. The fact that she took up space in law school just to become a housewife is annoying to me.
Has anybody ever figured out what her husband Ed Schlossberg does for a living, if anything? That was a big joke when she married him - nobody could figure out what he did for money.
Tell us about her books, R14 -- I''ve heard about them, but never read one.
Didn''t Schlossberg run museums or something?
[quote]I have been associated with her in a professional sitation and she is very bright, polite and funny and can be a bit off color now and then\
You mean she tells fart jokes to endear herself with children? I hear it''s a surefire tactic.
Her books have had a strongly liberal ACLU type slant, and it is for that reason, not any lack of "charisma" - a cheap playground taunt lacks meaning or reality - that cause the press to crucify her. You should have been pleased that we had a real progressive politics for a change, but no your jealousy is such that you wanted to tear her down long before she opened her mouth.%0D
She''s no Jackie O
You know some people have public personalities and others don''t. Bobby Kennedy had what, 9 or 10 kids. Some of them are public others are not. Caroline doesn''t have a public personality. John did. %0D\
And you know what? When I first heard the rumors about Jackie and Gianni Agnelli, I thought people were being vicious and mean and crazy. I was certain it was completely false and off the wall. But now, I think it is probably true. John was tall and dark and very French/Italian.
I think John Jr took after Jaqueline''s dad Black Jack. He had all the charisma you could want. Couldn''t be faithful to save his life though. Jackie had grown up with a pretty poor image of married life.
John Jr. had the looks, but he was no genius and what did he do but take up space in law school, too? He didn''t really run that magazine he was in charge of either.%0D\
I did like him for what he was, but he really didn''t have more on the ball than Caroline except for being handsome.
I wonder why Caroline went to law school even though she never actually worked as a lawyer. It's kind of a joke that she considers, (and other people) herself a lawyer. What a big waste of time and money.
This horrible, entitled troll of a woman is apparently about to be our next ambassador to either Canada or the U.K.
You know, because she's so incredibly QUALIFIED. *rolls eyes*
I recall her senior thesis at Radcliffe was on "Roman Gardens". Oh, how tres Jackie Bouvier.
I thought she was being considered for Ambassador to Japan?
Ahh, I think you're right R27... Which makes it even more odd, in my opinion.
It was originally the U.K. but I think I got Canada somehow confused with Japan. She's being considered now for Japan.
Yeah, "qualified". *snicker*
Like, um, you know...whatever.
She's a cunt.
Jackie and John-John's father.
Of COURSE he was the only good looking Kennedy...he was Italian.
Gianni Agnelli being JFK Jr.'s bio father has been disproven. JFK Jr. was conceived during the 1960 campaign, and Jackie's whereabouts were accounted for literally every single day. She and Agnelli had no contact at that time, and only met one another once or twice years later. JFK Jr. had the dark Bouvier looks.
given her elitist upbringing and education i cannot believe how often she says "ya know".
someone should say to her "no Caroline, I don't know. please tell me."
bobby Kennedy was the hot one. totally totally hot. no wonder Ethel didn't want to remarry. she couldn't top that.
sorry she lost her father and brother so young, but she certainly milks her father's legacy wonder if any of her kids will follow the business
Caroline is a typical frau who lucked out by being born. She has a hideous, rat-like Irish face.
WIshful thinking about Agnelli. People used to say I was a dead ringer for JFK Jr. and I have no Latin blood.
R37 is also in his mid-fifties but his friends INSIST he looks early thirties... at the most.
Dear Caroline Kennedy,
You don't need to tolerate this negativity. Call my lawyer, Allison Hart. The law firm is Lavely and Singer. She will send threatening letters to the webmaster and this harrassement will be deleted immediately.No one needs to be so abused like this.

R37 sorry to disappoint you, but back in 1962 all of our mothers said we were dead ringers for JFK jr.
R38 well they did until this year when my hair started to turn grey.
She's a terrible public speaker (in terms of delivery, liveliness, etc.), but, as someone who teaches public speaking, I can tell you that being a great public speaker in those areas does not ensure a great leader or thinker. Go with ideas and reasoning all the time.
She is nothing more than a well-monied and well-connected person.
How does she really spend her days?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
