Another political dynasty

The American fascination with power and criminal activity, which made the Godfather such a national hit, can been seen in the hoopla over the Clinton wedding.

The groom, Goldman Sachs escapee and hedge-fund hustler Marc Mezvinsky is the son of “Fast Eddie”, recently released from a five year federal stretch for fraud.

Chelsea also worked at a hedge fund, has a mother famous for her banking shenanigans and a father whose radical deregulation cleared the way for the financial plunderers.

Of course the Kennedy dynasty was founded by two of the worst Boston hoodlums ever – Patrick Kennedy and Honey-Fitz (Fitzgerald) – which is saying a very great deal indeed!

The next generation produced the Prohibition racketeer Joe Kennedy and then the three disreputable Kennedy brothers – so the Clintons have some way to go.
