What kind of pain does he have?

Liver.


He's headed back to the Mayo Clinic. Hope for his sake that his father isn't driving; there's a LOT of bridges between DC and Minnesota.

So, when will the Rhode Island DA go to his doctor's office to seize his medical records to see if he was doctor shopping for his prescriptions?

He's going to "continue on the road to recovery?"

It's a damn bumpy road.

He should resign.

I called this yesterday on the ATRW thread.

To: Jemian You know what happens next right.

Patches goes on the Today Show...claims he has a drinking problem ...seeks forgiveness(has the wife cry on cue) then announces he is entering rehab.

A victim is born...

He's ignoring the fact that ambien only does that when you DRINK.

If nobody had come forward with bar tabs, he wouldn't be here.


you are damn right!

He makes it sound like he was sleep-driving. ("I don't remember getting out of bed, driving, and being stopped by the police.") Whew.

If he were at the bar all that time, he'd better hope and pray someone doesn't rat him out.

And how many people do you know who could "check himself into the Mayo Clinic" on such short notice? I wonder if his Congressional insurance pays for the treatment.

Oh brother, CNN is speculating about his addiction to "prescription drugs"..

This is a very calculated strategy. His aides came up with this during the night when they realized his goose was cooked.

If they cry "prescription pain medication", they hope to squash any criticism of his illegal behavior and special treatment by the police because they will cry "Well, Rush was addicted too!"

He was drunk, but drugs may also have been involved. Two of the police present have said they smelled alcohol. A waitress at the bar IDed him drinking there.

They way he will get away with it is once in rehab, they can treat you for all addictions - booze plus drugs. Then they can justify the cover up.

People from two bars came forward and said he had been in there drinking the night of the accident.

Nobody on TV says that phenegran and Ambien do this kind of thing.

the Betty Ford clinic

That's funny...I'm quite often over at the adjacent medical buildings for various parental medical things.

That entire 'campus' is surrounded by thick hedges, with chain link behind those...and every 20 or 30 feet there are signs saying, "No cameras - no photography".

I guess the Liz Taylors and Patrick Kennedys of the world don't want the National Enquirer running pics of them rambling around in their bathrobes.

He has no memory of the incident on Capitol Hill.

Scary if true. Good grief... When in trouble, hold a press conference and try to get sympathy for your 'disease'.

How does someone who is that screwed up achieve the success he has? - Oh that's right... a powerful last name.

Is there any surviving Kennedy that is ~not~ screwed up?

You're right, why should I be surprised. They are the Kennedy's that always get away with their driving ....er accidents.

I think we ought to take the car keys away from all Kennedy's until they submit to a daily blood test for sobriety!

Too bad Rat constituents don't bother to keep up with current events, and keep reelecting Rat losers.

If they happen to hear negative information about their representative, they just blame it on the right's hate speech/racism/xenaphobism/homophobism/et.al... and unworthy of their attention.

If they see proof, then their particular elitist representative deserves "understanding."
