‘. . .He Leaves Very Big Shoes To Fill,’ Kennedy Said

So says Joe Kennedy III in a campaign video, opting to run for the seat vacated by the unlamented Barney Frank.

It may be that the Kennedy brand has recovered from the passing of Ted. According to the Boston Herald:

The UMass Lowell/Herald poll — the first to test the younger Kennedy’s appeal in the newly configured 4th Congressional District — shows no evidence of “Kennedy fatigue.” More than two years after the death of U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, nearly three quarters of voters in the district have a favorable opinion of the Kennedy family — including 42 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents.
The survey of 408 registered voters in the district was conducted from Feb. 2-4 and Feb. 6-8 and has margin of error of 6.4 percent.

Or not. The resemblance between Joe Kennedy and Lance Burri cannot be denied:

We’ll wait for those closer to the problem, like Da Tech Guy and Bob Belvedere, to weigh in.

But for now, supporting Sean Bielat is a must-do.

    Shoes, schmoes.

    The real question is, can Kennedy Cubed fill Barney’s shirt?

    The answer is: Sean Beilat won’t even try.

    Barney left a big SEAT to fill.
    Support Sean Bielat folks. Those in and around MA do.

    It was shoes that Frank was filling?

    I thought it was his wallet.

    […] at The Other McCain, Admiral Smitty notices that 3.0 bears a striking resemblance to a certain cave-dwelling, berry-eating blogger from a real cheesy state.  This is disturbing and […]

    Let Him That Hath Understanding……

    As you may have heard, the Kennedy Monster has risen from the seas of Chappaquiddick again to plaque the decent citizens of this bless’ed Republic. Joseph Kennedy III [or ‘Joe Kennedy 3.0’ or ‘Joe Joe Joe’ as he is called] will be running for…

    I don’t think its his shoes Barney would like Joe to fill.

    I’m not a resident of MA, but I will do whatever I can to promote Sean Bielat, because we don’t need to spawn another liberal elitist, career politician with an entitlement mentality, named Kennedy. It’s time to do things differently, and send some “real folk” to DC.

    If we can add more true conservatives, regardless of the district, to the numbers in the legislative branch, it will benefit all of us. Support Sean Bielat.

    “HIT THE FREAKING TIP JAR” for Sean Bielat. We can’t afford to allow another coronation. No more “Kennedy Seats”… PLEASE!

    Anyone that is good enough to get endorsed by the same thugs that beat up innocent bystanders in the streets, and feels it’s just to violate free speech, needs to be kept OUT of Congress.

    I stand with Sean Bielat, and will help him to become the next Congressman in the 4th Congressional district! Lets show our support for Mr. Bielat by going to, and making our voices REALLY matter, with our dollars!

    The choice is simple. On the one hand, you have the latest Kennedy empty suit. Joe, III, son of Joe II, who is the errand boy and cheerleader for Communist, America hater, Hugo Chavez. He is a young man who served in the Peace Corp (honorable, but telling) during an era of armed conflict when his classmates fought and died, who worked only 6 months of his adult life in a political appointment, who just moved out of his mother’s house in the Peoples Republic of Cambridge to the district he’s running in. OR, you can vote for Sean Bielat, husband, father, Marine and successful businessman.

    My recommendation? The obvious. Support Bielat first with a donation at and then with your vote!!!

    (And maybe hit Stacey’s tip jar? He’s spot on in this.)
