Caroline Kennedy: Check out the Comments in the NY Daily News and Then Go Read Matt LaBash on Detroit Today

There's an interview of Caroline Kennedy in the New York Daily News today, where she pushes the idea that she won't owe any political favors to anyone because she hasn't made any significant campaign donations.

I found three things of interest here:

1. the snide and subtle dig at Caroline's overuse of the phrase "you know" (she's not the only public figure to do this, but usually those "you knows" and "likes" get edited out of the copy);

2. conspicuous by its absence is the use of her married surname, Schlossberg, and the fact that she's a Catholic married to the grandson of Jewish immigrants with whom she's had two girls and a boy; and

3. all the comments coming into the online commentary for this Daily News article. Wow. Those readers hate her, don't they?

Me? It's a time of crisis in our country, and while I'm not a New Yorker, I'm thinking that every seat in the US Senate needs to be filled with the best and the brightest our country has to offer.

Take away her surname, and I'm not feeling confident here.

And, if you want to read about how bad it could get for all of us, go check out this great piece by Matt LaBash about how Detroit is doing. (thanks to Will Collier over at Vodkapundit for the heads up here.)

In fact, just stop everything and go read LaBash's piece right now. It's one of the great ones.
