Comments welcome. Fortunately for Kennedy it's also being reported CIA Director Porter Goss is resigning so his story will get buried quickly.

Maybe he's gonna resign....

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.

Who cares!

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.

They need a little time to sober him up.

No doubt he'll be announcing this is all Bush's fault.

LOL!

Darlin' and I have been discussing this very thing on another thread:

To: Mo1

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.

"...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. "

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?

Doing great. Its a toss up, really.

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).

LOL. Yes, on the Rose and Jackie photos and the bust should be on or near the grand piano.

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...

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.

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."

Scenario #1: He admits a problem with substance abuse. Asks for understanding. He's a Kennedy. Bad luck seems to follow his family. *tears* *sigh* He has decided to seek help. Must now get back to doing the work of the American people.

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?

How about he discuss the equally suspicious traffic accident from April 16th in Rhode Island? Maybe he could answer questions about why his handwriting makes it obvious that he was intoxicated.

PDF of police report. Scroll to page 6 of 6 to see it. He was wasted...
