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.
