Kennedy the Third

IMG_8976

One more story for your pre-weekend distraction: A look at the campaign for Barney Frank's seat in Massachusetts, which pits 2010's GOP contender Sean Bielat against Joseph Patrick Kennedy III. The Republican: A veteran of the Marine Corps who'd be a fine recruit in any district. The Democrat: Son of former Rep. Joe Kennedy II, grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy. You're probably looking at the photo of the red-haired guy above and thinking "oh, yeah, I see it."

(Photo: Joe Kennedy III campaigns at a retirement party for a war hero supporter in Foxboro, Mass.)
