PROVIDENCE, R.I. Former Rhode Island Rep. Patrick Kennedy and his fiancee plan to be married this week at a private wedding ceremony at the Kennedy familys Cape Cod compound.
The 43-year-old Kennedy will wed New Jersey school teacher Amy Petitgout on Friday at what Kennedys spokeswoman says will be a small, intimate event.
Kennedy is the son of the late Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy. He represented Rhode Islands 1st Congressional District as a Democrat for 16 years. Since leaving Congress in January Kennedy has been named a visiting fellow at Brown University and has campaigned to improve brain research.
The wedding, which will be closed to the press, is scheduled for the Kennedy compound in Hyannis, Mass. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is set to officiate.
Wikipedia on Breyer, who will officiate:
>>Stephen Gerald Breyer ...is an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Appointed by Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1994, and known for his pragmatic approach to constitutional law, Breyer is generally associated with the more liberal side of the Court.
Howie Carr list ping
If you can’t get married in the Church, I guess a USSC Justice will have to do
Maybe this lady will straighten him out and they will both be happy ...
has campaigned to improve brain research.
improved gene pool among the Kennedys is all thats needed
“And no press? NO PRESS? You wanna know why the American public is fit (sic)?”
Why isn’t he having BJ Clinton perform the ceremony like Weenie & Huma?
Do any of the Kennedy’s ever get a real job and work. Here we have Patch’s who sucked on the Govt. teat for 16 years most of that time under the influence of one drug or another and they make him a fellow at Brown University.
Money won’t buy happiness I guess, but it can sure make you think you are happy.
He’s probably in “the program” at this point...will he be tempted if there is an open bar though?
I wonder if there’s a good view of the Vineyard from the compound (probably is). We all know about the situation his dad faced at a certain spot on the Vineyard. And a little over 10 yrs ago his cousin JFK Jr was en route to Rory Kennedy’s wedding at the compound (IIRC) and the plane crashed killing JFK Jr, his wife, and sister in law. Plane crashed off the Vineyard.
“The Vineyard triangle”?
And while I’m at it, Martha’s VINEYARD is an ironic name
for that island given the booze connections to the Kennedy Crime Family.
I’m not all that familiar with this particular kennedy. Is he more into the drug addict part of the clan, or is he just the traditional Kennedy drunkard type?
This thread needs a barf alert.
“spokeswoman says wedding will be small, intimate event..”
...followed by honeymoon eve which will be intimate small event.
Is it the genes or the ethanol enhanced environment all of them are brought up in with A Brave New World effects on them.
Pills I think...maybe some booze too. He treated a black female airport security agent rudely at one point. Had some misadventures with a borrowed boat. Has been described as “the runt of the litter of the runt of the litter”.
"Pragmatic" must be a nice way of saying he makes up stuff that isn't in the Constitution.
aw Gawd! now the drunken druggie POS is gonna BREED!!!
In his own handwriting:
good pic as post #9. he looks like he has a hangover, and she looks like she was paid to stand there, and can’t wait till her shift’s over.
with an Oldsmobile.
For those who don’t know, the nickname he has came from Clarence Carter’s 1970 pop/soul hit Patches, about a young boy who has to become the man of the family when his dad dies, and has to work hard (ironic) during tough times. “Every day I had to work the fields/ Cause that’s the only way we got our meals...(the dad said) Patches I’m depending on you son, to pull the family through, my son it’s all left up to you.”
(Howie Carr pictured it as Ted K saying the next generation of Kennedys, like Patches, had to carry on the family tradition. Of substance abuse, maybe)
my parody lyrics
My father was a drunk old man
I could see him with the Chivas in his hand
He put a blonde in the pond
Didn’t think he did anything wrong
Didn’t spend any time in jail
Got re-elected without fail
Oh life’s not easy for a Kennedy
The pills and the booze and the broads you see
One night daddy took me to his dyin’ bed
Poured himself a Chivas and in tears he said
He said Patches I’m depending on you son
To pull the family through
My son it’s all left up to you
I wanna party with that guy.
>>The wedding, which will be closed to the press
Ironic in light of the video linked above.
“AND NO PRESS? NO PRESS???”
LOL. As what, a Doctor of Mixology???? These Libs always have an escape hatch. Go down in flames in their careers and someone will give them a cushy job to cushion the fall.
nd God help this woman who is marrying him. We'll get the tabloid tales of cheating and drunken fights. Can't say she didn't go into it with her eyes open.
Run, Amy, run !
Meanwhile his birth mother, Joan Bennett Kennedy, was a lovely young lady who was no doubt driven to drink by her marriage to The Swimmer and she had some recent embarrassing incidents.
Wikipedia entry on Joan Bennett Kennedy:
>>Her later years have been shaped by chronic alcoholism, which had appeared during her marriage. It escalated with sporadic, uneven sobriety, repeated drunk-driving arrests, court-ordered rehabilitation, and a return to drinking. This ultimately led to kidney damage, with the possibility of dialysis and protracted complications from increasingly strict legal guardianship.
In 2005, she was hospitalized with a concussion and a broken shoulder after being found lying in a Boston street near her home.
In July 2004, her son Edward had been appointed her legal guardian; in 2005 her children were granted temporary guardianship
Ted Kennedy’s son, he is considered the runt of the litter. On the night (Holy Saturday/Easter Night) that his cousin Willie Kennedy Smith, MD. was accused of raping a woman in Palm Beach at the family compound, Ted was shooting Long Island ice teas with his young son Patches, the traditional Kennedy family Easter libation.
I saw him accept some kind of award at McCoy Stadium (Pawtucket Red Sox) a few years ago and throw out the first pitch. His persona is that of a guy who could not manage the night shift at a Cumberland Farms (New England equivalent of 7-11.)
Yep, there'll be a whole new generation of drunken rich Kennedy degenerates to infect the body politic in about 20 years.
Yes indeed. By the way someone on the Herald’s comments to the article mentioned it’s the anniversary weekend of Chappaquiddick! Let’s see, Aug 16-17 is this wknd, and I think Chappa. was on Aug 18th...
>>On July 18, 1969, Ted Kennedy gave a a party on Chappaquiddick, a small island connected via ferry to the town of Edgartown on the nearby larger island of Martha’s Vineyard...Kennedy left the party at “approximately 11:15 p.m.” He said that when he announced that he was about to leave, Kopechne told him “that she was desirous of leaving, if I would be kind enough to drop her back at her hotel.” Kennedy then requested the keys to his mother’s car from his chauffeur, Crimmins (etc)
What year was it that Howie Carr boardcast from the “party house” on Chappaquiddick? It was like the 30th or 25th anniversary of the “incident”. Howie definitely has stones, going after a political bigfoot like that.
She has to be out of her mind to marry this drug addict.
1994, the 25th anniversary. At one point they had Howie’s interview with the diver posted on howiecarr.com; I grabbed it and some pics and made a youtube vid out of it. At that time Howie was on WHDH AM 850 (I think a month later
WEEI “moved” from 590 to 850, and Rush and Howie then wound up on WRKO 680. You will hear the intro from announcer Jim Cutler—often heard on ESPN, etc.—”on WHDH”...)
I think the grandkids have pretty much exhausted Grandpa Joe’s treasure horde. The Kennedys want the Hyannis Compound to become an “National Historical Site” and be aquired by the Federal Government. Basically, they want to sell the place and hope they can get a premium with a politically connected sale to the government.
Oxycotin with a booze chaser was his poison of choice.
Maybe he can get a job at his cousins “charity” selling Hugo’s heating oil to poor people(see Citizens Energy).
True story told by my Dad, who is now in a rest home at the age of 90: Some years ago, when my Dad still drove, he and my stepmother were out for a drive near Hyannisport and a car pulled up and they asked where the Kennedy compound was. My dad agreed to guide them there (it wasn’t far). A blind man got out and was led to the fence by others. He put one hand on the fence, as if he was touching something special, magical. He smiled and said, “OK, let’s go.”
That’s what the Kennedys mean to some people.
I have family members who worshiped the ground teddy walked on - they would vote for him no matter what - there was no reasoning with them - even tho ted was a murderer didn’t matter - he was “their ted” and he got their vote - they even watched the funeral with tears streaming down their faces - watched all the specials that followed with tears in their eyes - they spoke of him like he was a family member - I shudder at the thought.
Was “Amy” born with a penis?
“...brain research,” he conducted on himself.
“Drinks for everybody!”
He’s the ultimate loser.
Found on a link to a Salem (MA) News story on Ted Kennedy Jr speaking at Salem State University...
Heard on the Hill: Kennedys Vodka-Fueled Bar Trip
By Emily Heil and Elizabeth Brotherton
Roll Call Staff
April 27, 2010, Midnight
>>>Rep. Patrick Kennedy was spotted doing vodka shots last week at a Capitol Hill bar just hours after he spoke about his history of substance abuse at a charity event.
>>An HOH tipster and a pal were sitting at the bar at the Capitol Lounge around 11 p.m. on Tuesday when the Rhode Island Democrat walked in and took a seat between the pair. The tipsters friend asked the Congressman what he was drinking, and when Kennedy replied vodka, the group ordered vodka shots, the tipster tells us.
>>After slamming down the first round, another was ordered, then a third. Our tipster and his friend stopped doing shots, but Kennedy drank three more until the bartender cut him off, at least from obtaining any more shots, our tipster says.
>>Our tipster adds Kennedy was in a lively mood, joking with others at the bar and even boasting about President Barack Obama, calling him the best president ever.
>>When our tipster countered: Wait a second. What about your uncle? referring, of course, to President John F. Kennedy the younger Kennedy jovially responded, Oh yeah! Good one, and slapped our tipsters back, he says.
No word on when Kennedy left the lounge, as our tipster headed out before the Congressman.
Earlier in the night, Kennedy received an award for his work on mental health issues at the annual fundraising dinner for N Street Village, a local charity that helps low-income women battle homelessness and drug addiction.
>>Kennedy who was introduced at the soiree by his one-time substance abuse sponsor, former Rep. Jim Ramstad (R-Minn.) touched on his personal history in his acceptance speech. The Congressman recalled the late night in 2006 when he crashed his car into a Capitol Hill barricade and subsequently headed to rehab for a prescription drug addiction.
HOHs multiple calls and e-mails to Kennedys office seeking comment were not returned by press time.
