A mother of three

I keep hearing that one of Caroline Kennedy's qualifications for the senate is being "a mother of three".

Wasn't it just a couple of months ago when we were told that being a mother of five was a disqualification from higher office?

So, is three the perfect number? One or less, and you're not woman enough. (See Rendell on Napolitano) Five or more, and you'd be too busy taking them to hockey games.

It's like the old episode on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show", in which they were discussing how many lovers makes a woman "that kind of woman", and they decided it was six.

I'll say it again. Freedom of choice means the freedom to make ANY choice, not just the politically correct ones. Or, the choices of those you support, at the moment.

By the way, I wonder how these people handle the sudden, constant reversals of their positions on all these issues. One day, against dynasties. Next day, advance Caroline, Jesse, Jr., and Beau. One day, McCain's twelve houses, no good. Next day, Caroline's six + houses, no problem. One day, picket his church. Next day, invite him to give the invocation. What is it? Convenient amnesia? Ambien? Or, callow hypocracy?
