Representative Gary L. Ackerman said on Wednesday that he meant no offense when he indirectly compared Caroline Kennedy, who wants to succeed Hillary Rodham Clinton in the United States Senate, to the actress and singer Jennifer Lopez.
What was he thinking? One’s a glamorous and powerful New York entrepreneur with an interest in human rights. The other has a famous father. If Jennifer Lopez knew what a Gary L. Ackerman was, she’d surely be offended.
