Seeing the Kennedys in the Rearview Mirror

"The Kennedys were more than a rich, bad family who gained temporary political power. They were demagogues of oligarchy. Disguised as populists, they championed the definitely privileged and supposedly enlightened few....There is something more horrible than hoodlums, churls and vipers and this is knaves with moral justification for their cause. The Kennedy's thought the world would be a better place for having them run it."

Mordred had a Point-Camelot Revisited, P.J. O'Rourke in Give War a Chance, 1992
