Dennis Miller Embraces 'The Kennedys' and Wonders Where the "America's Emerald Kings" Came From.


Earlier this month on the Dennis Miller radio show, producer/director Robert Kline talked about "The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings" based on my book of the same name. In the beginning, Dennis Miller asked about the origin of the phrase "America's Emerald Kings" and yes indeed there is some irony in that phrase. As I explained in the book, it obviously plays off the 'Camelot' imagery but underscores that the Irish roots as immigrants who came to the US as poor migrant workers. It also suggest the Irish idea of "chieftains", the Irish kings, and how the Kennedys seemed to embody that idea here.
