I understand that John Kenndey is going to put his name forward to contest the Dublin South by-election for Fine Gael. John was on the YFG National Exec, and ran for one of the NUI Seanad seats last year.

Before the by-election came up I think John had been planning to go forward for the locals, not sure which ward he lives in though.

The dead American President to run for Fine Gael? He may be past his prime but surely his remaining vigor, drive and debating ability will upstage Enda Kenny.

THIS VIDEO makes exactly clear how I feel about this news. Watch it, please:

I am delighted to hear this news. John Kennedy is perhaps the brightest hope for the future in Fine Gael.

A young, telegenic candidate, an inspiring public speaker, a man with a ten year record of service to his country through his determined and visionary leadership of Dublin Young Fine Gael. Kennedy is without a doubt the candidate to win this seat for his party. He is a true Reaganite conservative, and in Fine Gael terms he is without doubt the man to lead the party into the election after next.

Although Kennedy has not yet actually won an election in which another candidate was running, (Having been constantly unopposed in YFG) that is merely testimony to the jealousy felt by many in YFG that Kennedy's immense talents are not their own.

This jealousy cost him his senate seat, it cost him the chance to run for the Dail in Dublin South the last time, when that awful Olivia Mitchell wouldn't stand aside in favour of the next generation, and it has cost him dearly in his attempts to win a nomination for the council. It also cost him when some nobody annihilated him for the Vice Presidency of Young Fine Gael, despite a nationwide campaign by KENNEDY's thousands of supporters.

When this fantastic specimen of human evolution gets his name on a ballot paper before an actual electorate, the Liberal establishment will tremble.

Through innumerable letters to the Irish Times, Kennedy has proven that he has what it takes to cut it at the highest level of political discourse. When he appears in the audience of Q&A, with his steely gaze fixed at the camera from under that made-for-government quiffe, I get off my seat in anticipation, as do thousands of fellow KENNEDY supporters nationwide.

A day is coming when the values of John McCain and John Kennedy will be the values by which Fine Gael governs this country. I fully expect that the Fine Gael national executive will move immediately to adopt Kennedy as the Fine Gael candidate, and dispense with selection procedures which may leave him open to shafting by his jealous colleagues.

During the Lisbon Treaty debate, if people had only listened to Kennedy, we would have won. Time and time again, in the letters pag of the Indo, the Times, and the Examiner, this great man showed us the way, but we ignored him.

Now, at the urging of his thousands of die hard supporters, John F.G. Kennedy has decided to allow his name to be placed in nomination for the election to fill a seat in our national parliament, - and not any seat, - the seat held for many years by the late, great Seamus Brennan, a man, despite it all, not fit to lace Kennedy's canvassin' boots.

I am officially endorsing John F.G. Kennedy for this race. I hope you'll all join me. Together, we can get behind one candidate, unite the party, and put KENNEDY in the Dail, where he belongs. And after that, he will have my support for his inevitable rise to the highest offices in the land.

I'm not insane.

I SUPPORT KENNEDY!!

Why would anyone think that supporting our very own JFK would make you insane????

Kennedy for Senate didn'y quite make it because the stupid Liberal elite NUI panel wouldn't give victory to this country's greatest hope for incremental conservative change, but KENNEDY FOR DUBLIN SOUTH will be the beginning of a national tidal wave.

It's not comedy.

It's well beyond time that our party drank the KENNEDY Kool-Aid, and realised that he can be much more than the running joke and constant loser they have made him in the past. He can be a real catalyst for change, he can be THE ONE, the man who leads us out of 30 years of political desolation towards the promised land of a KENNEDY administration.

I would strongly urge FG supporters to eh, support JK. Very bright chap. Very innovative education policies and political reform. If I was Taoiseacht, I would make him minister for local government, until he builds popularity then push him on to something bigger.

Apart from the fact he is very thin and is /was a member of YFG, I know nothing about the guy. Are we supposed to? Are we supposed to care?
