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.
Just as soon as Rush is over.
Would be funnier if he had scheduled it for 4:20. Whoo Hoo!
wearing a neck brace?
Friday is "Throw out the trash day".
And maybe a Spotted Poland China Pig will develop personal aviation skills and emerge from my....well, we all know that a Kennedy won't do the right thing.
Just more blather from a POS with a royalty complex.
Kennedy:"I didn't do it. Booze MADE me do it!!!"
He's running for President.
What tavern is he holding this press conference at?
Breaking... Kennedy just crashed into a barricade at the Capitol on his way to his news conference... developing.../s
What a hard worker. That's only 12 hours after his late night vote he was rushing to.
I want his cell phone records to see who he called from the car after the wreck but before the officer started asking questions.
Nobody bought the first round of lies so here come the second round.
Who cares. Booze, driving and getting away with murder are a Kennedy gene.
They need a little time to sober him up.
No doubt he'll be announcing this is all Bush's fault.
He's going to admit to drinking with Porter Goss that night.
"Congressman, are you a hawk or a dove?"
Darlin' and I have been discussing this very thing on another thread:
Isn't that what they always do? It's SOP for the Kennedys.
First they have to call ALL their advisors in and brainstorm how to handle it; then he'll come on TV, probably in a living room setting, and have a "heart to heart" talk with all of the country.
I'm so tired of this long therapy session we've had with this family for the last 30 plus years.
Isn't that the truth ? ! They'll probably give the interview to Barbara Walters or Diane Sawyer... soft focus lens, soft lighting, cozy room, lots of old "Camelot" clips and photos. We have dysfunctional families in all walks of life but this particular family has become a pox on this country. Its time for ALL of them to give up their driver's licenses, retire from public life and set up a rehab center at that vaunted Hyannis "compound". The country needs a break from their endless soap opera and all of the Kennedys need therapy.
So....you've seen this "show" before?
I'm picturing soft yellow sofas, perhaps a fireplace in the background, are you?
Or they could go for the Gold and have him sitting in a Adirondack chair on the lawn of the "compound" in Hyannisport, with the sound in the background. Perhaps a dog or two. Open collar buttondown shirt, maybe yellow to highlight the redness in his hair.
What do you think? How I'm doing?
The interior option should have lots of family photos in silver frames on every table and a bronze bust of President Kennedy.
The exterior option would surely have the camera pan slowly past the flag pole out to the water where a graceful sailboat bearing the simply initials JFK passes by. Of course, the crowning piece of stage craft would be the sound of a new generation of Kennedys romping through a game of touch football.
Aw, heck, it all just to heart tugging and memory invoking to choose, they'll have to do a two part segment, one inside, one outside.
Well, he'll probably have to do a two parter anyway; the first "explanation" never works. (See last night for example.)
The Kennedy bust is a brillant touch; but since we already have that, perhaps a small plane circling it he background OVER the sound to, of course, invoke the memory of John John.
And, of course, the pictures in the frames would be Rose (not Joe) and Jackie (not Joan).
I dunno, thought about including the sound of a plane but just couldn't go there.
1) He crashed his car
2) It was the fault of the drugs, man
3) He is being pilloried by the VRWC
4) He calls upon democrats and "Great thinkers" everywhere to support him as he is the victim of the VRWC
5) Uncle Ted's buying the next round...
ROFLMAO..........you are so very, very bad.
And I love it!
is cynthia mckinney invited?
Speaking of records, Wifey was listening to Rush, who said he got emailed by a " highly reliable source" that there's a paper trail....bar tab, in possession of a D.C. waitress.
I'll bet the farm that he isn't planning on resigning.
My guess is that he'll deliver political threats prior to any announcement, and that the announcement might be:
1. Betty Ford clinic...have compassion on poor Kennedy alcohol genes that I have.
2. It's all a lie and nobody died, so shut up.
That's one toke over the line......
im predicting that maybe...he might admit his drinking problem and seek help...
Howlin, you shoulda been around back in the late '50s when Papa Joe was selling (Matress) Jack Kennedy to America. Every other issue of Look, Life and the Saturday Evening Post had a suck up article. IMO, they were the first political organization to perfect and practice "spin."
Wow.. St. Patty'$ Day II
News conferences galore today!
You got that right tho, the Sunday talk shows will be about Goss and not the culture of .. *hic* .. Korruption in DC.
Maybe papa Ted sold his soul to Rove in order to get a news story to kick Patches off the front page.
Where's Kwasi Imfume? Where's Al Sharpton? Where's the NAACP? Where's NOW?
I wonder what lie he's going to come out with now??
How long are we going to allow the elected officials to run the country as their own personal fiefdom?? Are we their servants??????
Scenario #2: Pleads the Fifth on draining the fifth. A frightened waitess from the Hawk and Dove is brought forward to say she mistook another sot for Kennedy. Says she has never seen him before in her life as Senator Edward Kennedy stands behind her jingling a set of car keys and making gurgling sounds.
Scenario #3: Fights back tears as he admits to drinking to alleviate the pain he feels because of the War in Iraq, Cindy Sheehan, New Orleans, guest workers and toenail fungus; besides that Karl Rove was driving and this is a a vast right wing conspiracy as someone obviously has drugged his drugs.
Leaves the podium shouting, "Do you f@#$ing people know who I am?
You need to pick a word that couldn't possibly mean "hired help."
Gives him some time to pound a few before the conference.
"I am an Alcoholic-American"
LOL. Uncharacteristically bad timing on the part of his handlers. In light of the Goss resignation he could have just layed low for a few days and polished up his act.
Another Kennedy trait....waiting OVER 24hours from the time of the crime to actually address it.
Maybe he is going to tell us which VOTE he was late for...and how he was going to vote. He is a Kennedy, and in America there are priviledged classes, just ask THE KENNEDYS.
Turn your lie detectors on.
Wonder if he slams his own B12 shots?
PDF of police report. Scroll to page 6 of 6 to see it. He was wasted...
I'm afraid mine would break.
Hmm. At least he didn't say the current was too strong to swim against.
This Administration is so horribly tone deaf media wise. Why not let Patches shift in the wind for a day?
Methinks his silent and now secluded, Fat Sweaty daddy is involved in the cover up.
