The commentariat will say it was the “uhs” and “you knows” that killed Caroline Kennedy’s bid for Hillary’s Senate seat.

The halting media appearances certainly didn’t help. But ultimately, it was the regal sense of entitlement that done her in.

Dynastic expectations coupled with lack of public disclosure and questionable work ethics do not sit well with the American public.

Fare the well, Queen Caroline. Or, as us serfs like to put it: DLTDHYOTWO*!

*That’s “Don’t Let The Door Hit You On The Way Out” for those who do not rub elbows with the commoners.

Update: Via Allahpundit, the Associated Press reports late tonight that Caroline still wants in!

A person familiar with Caroline Kennedy’s decision says she has renewed her determination to win appointment to the U.S. Senate seat once held by her slain uncle, Sen. Bobby Kennedy.

The source says that after her surviving uncle, Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, suffered a seizure on Inauguration Day, Caroline Kennedy had misgivings about taking on the new job.

The source spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak for Kennedy. Earlier in the day, The New York Times and New York Post reported that Kennedy had ended her monthlong bid to succeed Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was confirmed as secretary of state.

Gov. David Paterson has said he hopes to make the appointment by this weekend.

Awkwardness. Intrigue. Grab the popcorn. It ain’t over yet.

Update 12:35am Eastern.
And the roller coaster ride comes to a screeching halt. Out. In. Out.

AP bulletin: Spokesman confirms Caroline has withdrawn.

Now, you can do like the moonbats did to George W. Bush and sing “Nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, goodbye…”
