Not-So-Sweet Caroline


Caroline Kennedy's adoption of the Sarah Palin handbook continues apace. This weekend the would-be senator gave interviews to NY1 and the Times, in which she refused to answer questions with any degree of detail and, in the latter, made clear her disdain for the "media elite," specifically the reporters Nicholas Confessore and David Halbfinger:

“Have you guys ever thought about writing for, like, a woman’s magazine or something?” she asked the reporters. “I thought you were the crack political team.

Ouch! We're not sure whom we feel more sympathy/outrage for here: Confessore and Halbfinger for getting their balls shot off or the women's magazines that got hit with the shrapnel. Somewhere Mariane Pearl and Cindy Leive are keening and wailing, and we're sure whatever bizarre photo shoot Bazaar was planning with an oiled-up Kennedy dressed as Rosie the Riveter just went up in smoke.
