Dynasty Watch

Wednesday, October 05, 2005
I'll most likely be moving away from New York. One of the places I might end up is in St. Louis. Just for fun I looked up who the congresspeople are. And what do I find?

1st District - Bill Clay, son of the former Congressman of the same name
2nd District - Todd Hakin, entrenched Republican
3rd District - Russ Carnahan, son of the former Governor

I throw up my hands in exasperation at this point, since I'm either looking at Republicans or political dynasts. To add insult to injury, I then read that Jimmy Carter's son is running for the Senate.

Apparently I get to choose between corrupt theocons and aristocrats. Ah, the humanity!
