Five Fun Facts About Congressman Joe Kennedy [VIDEO]
It's not every day you get to run into a congressman.
Early on Thursday morning, I was able to track down Rep. Joe Kennedy III, as he began his 24-hour blitz campaign across the SouthCoast.
Now, when it comes to politics, I know diddly squat.
Down by the New Bedford docks at the public fish auction, the gaggle of press began flocking towards Joe and I knew that I had to get right to the front of the line for some "hard-hitting" questions.
I couldn't even tell you what he was running for if you asked me, but Google tells me he's looking for a seat in the U.S. Senate (whatever that means). Therefore, when it comes to interviewing anyone within politics, I only ask questions that I can understand and have some fun with.
So here's a little segment I like to call "A Cup of Joe with Joe:"
Gazelle: How do you take your coffee?
JK3: "Caffeinated, with milk. But with a lot of caffeine."
Gazelle: What kind of hot dogs did you order from Gary's Best in New Bedford the other day, and how many?
JK3: "Just ketchup and mustard. They were delicious, by the way." (he bought two)
Gazelle: Would you rather go roller skating or rollerblading?
Gazelle: Favorite throwback song, and then your favorite current song on the radio?
JK3: (we'll let you see his reaction in the video above, but for throwbacks, it's anything Bruce Springsteen or U2) "Not original, but true."
Gazelle: If you had to fight 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck, which are you choosing?
JK3: "I think I've gotta go with the horse-sized duck. I'd rather fight a duck than a horse."
Well folks, if you were looking for a politically packed interview, you've come to the wrong place. Perhaps his 60 seconds of Fun 107 fame will help out his campaign, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
