The slobbering Massachusetts media have gushed over the “astonishing” fundraising prowess of congressional hopeful Joe Kennedy III. With a war chest of nearly $2 million, the Democrat running to replace Rep. Barney Frank has a massive financial lead over GOP candidate Sean Bielat.

Cue the whining and begging.

That’s not a joke. In addition to dish racks, the Kennedy camp’s wish list includes art supplies, food, staples and “silverware (real, not plastic).”

Real silver? Clearly Kennedy is a Man of the People™.

Givers that they are, Bielat and his staffers have put together the Joe Kennedy, III Campaign Gift Registry to have a little fun at Kennedy’s expense.

Because the Bielat for Congress campaign believes that every campaign staffer deserves a stapler, we created an online gift registry to help the recent graduate provide office supplies for his staff.

A portion of the proceeds donated to the Joe Kennedy, III Campaign Gift Registry will be used to send a box of supplies to one of his four campaign offices in the Fourth Congressional District of Massachusetts.

Thoughtful, right? Maybe Kennedy will end up with a new set of silverware (real, not plastic).

Who says Republicans aren’t generous?
