CNN reports Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) will hold a press conference today at 3 p.m. in Washington, D.C. to discuss his recent traffic incident on Capitol Hill.
You're half-right. He left the Mrs. behind, and he avoided the Today Show.
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.
My sympathy for him vanished when he said "I don't remember waking up and driving". Come on Pat! Just tell the truth and you'd have support - but this??
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.
I'll take that...
That's a new one.....I'll have to remember that if I'm ever pulled over....
Geez, Kennedy is a mess and if he is taking all these meds, drinking, or whatever he can't be conscious enough to work in congress and needs to step down!
What is his problem with PAIN?
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?
He must have really screwed up to be this "truthful."
I think we ought to take the car keys away from all Kennedy's until they submit to a daily blood test for sobriety!
Great moments in reporting:
Major Garrett - "I've been told that he was taking X and Y. I 've been told by doctors that each when taken causes drowsiness. I've also been told by doctors that taking them together can cause extreme drowsiness."
Capitol Hill police are investigating at the bars!
What doc in his right mind would advise taking the two together?
OT-was Rosemary's lobotomy done at Mayo?
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."
