Wake up Rhode Island. Do you really want someone representing your interests that cannot remember getting out of bed?

I haven't followed what he was wearing when arrested. Was he in PJ's or a three piece suit?

I will think of this the next time Pelosi talks about a "Republican culture of corruption" or "Democrats stand for accountability" or somesuch hogwash.

This nation should be incredibly angry with how the Kennedys have unashamedly used the murders of two of their family to protect them from all manner of criticism and accountability. They are a corrupt group with several decent members, yet a corrupt group nonetheless. As an American of Irish heritage, it amazes me that people in this country think of Italian fictional families like the Corleones and Sopranos when they think of corrupt business families.

Based on Joe's dealings with phone and oil companies and his crippling of a young woman (who subsequently talked of suing him to get more money); the late Michael's perversions; the utter carelessness with their own lives and those of others; the drugs and booze and the casual attitude toward their use; and Teddy's nauseating moralizing while being pro-abortion, a public drunk, and at least an involuntary murderer, the obvious truth is that the Kennedy family's business IS corruption.

He should get a DUI regardless. Even if the cops pretend to believe his lie about not being drunk, being under the influence of drugs is also grounds for a DUI, and he has admitted that.

Oi! Don't blame us! The GOP needs to meet us halfway here. They need to RUN CANDIDATES in the blue states. They need to support the guys that do run. They need to buy ads. They need to send us signs to put in the yard. I turn out every election, and it's always Patrick Kennedy vs. Some Guy. Guess how that turns out?

Seriously, the party has totally given up on the definitive blue parts of the country. They don't see the overall strategic value in doing better in these areas, even if they don't win. And they don't even dream of actually winning. If an area is totally ignored by the party, how do they ever HOPE to gain ground?

I just had to ask around to find out if anybody's running against Patrick this year. Yeah. Some Guy.

I agree, but unfortunately there's no physical proof of intoxication.

I was waiting for the Kennedy family's silent butlers in the news media to attirbute this latest abomination to the "awful curse" plaguing the Kennedy family. While it took an amazing 24 hours, sure enough, CNN ran a trailer across the screen right before the Larry King Show last night about the AWFUL CURSE, as though some evil mysterious force shoved alcohol down Patrick Kennedy's throat and frog-marched him behind the wheel of the Mustang. So, the AWFUL CURSE causes you to: 1) dunk a woman off the bridge and then go to sleep with pleasant dreams at your hotal; 2) crash your car while driving recklessly on Nantucket and paralyze a young woman for life; 3) take sexual advantage of an underage babysitter; 4) get indicted for rape; 5) drive drunk with abandon around the Capitol Building then lie through your teeth when caught.

Perhaps (and I can show no proof for this) the biggest scam in America is that in some states ... there are NO elections.

lying,
corruption,
arrogance,
idiocy,
Machiavellianism,
Communism,
globalism,

All of the MSM that I heard is really proud of Patrick as well. Said how courageous that he is.

He is a Cocaine addict, a drunk, schizophrenic.

Now all of you that are unhappy with the Republicans, is this what you want running the country????

…took the prescribed amount of Phenergan and Ambien

Would he have used this defense if Ambien had not been in the news a short time ago for causing people to “sleep drive” as well as sleep walk?
On CNN this morning a segment showed him apologizing for being addicted to painkillers and stating he was going to the Mayo Clinic for treatment – and how he is the victim of a terrible chronic illness. Now we are to feel sorry for him – he is a victim.
“My courage to seek help will give others the courage to seek help” – not only are we to feel sorry for him because he is a victim, but praise him because he is a hero!

The networks and CNN would be doing gavel-to-gavel coverage of this if Kennedy were a Republican.

The double-standards and hypocrisy of Dem crimes vs GOP crimes is absolutely incredible.

You know as well as I do how they came up with the cockamamie story about Ambien. The first public statement was a disaster; perhaps the Kennedy family attorneys got involved and hurriedly researched the internet for a "prescription drug" excuse. Ambien has been in the news lately although only a tiny fraction of its users have had the supposed side effects. Presto, a day later, a new excuse and Papa Ted ("Patrick, can you use this neck brace I have in the closet") is so "proud" of his son for stepping forward to get treatement for this awful thing done to him by the drug companies. All but the most gullible (and the willing helpers in the press) can see through this garbage.

. . . the obvious truth is that the Kennedy family's business IS corruption.

You mean, like Joe Sr's thriving business smuggling booze during Prohibition? If he hadn't been a smashing success there (achieved by being ruthless enough to succeed in a mob/gangster/criminal enterprise) there wouldn't have been the financial backing to produce the degree of infestation of Kennedys the country has now.

But where Joe's was red-blooded, bare-knuckled, dog-eat-dog crime, his spawn have weakened to predatory, bullying, inflict-suffering-on-the-weak-and-play-for-sympathy-later crime (oh, did I just describe many congressthings?)

I can keep up with all the Kennedy spawn but isn't this the same Kennedy son who went to the courts with his sister and was made guardian for his mom due to her drinking? Is he one of the one's involved with trying to have her committed when her tried to sell some of her own property?

This is an outrage.

He knew exactly what the hell he was doing by claiming he had to vote at 3 am so as to try and thwart law enforcement.

1. That is abuse of power.

Further, we now know he was drinking at this bar before the accident.

He issued a statement Thursday saying he had consumed "no alcohol prior to this incident."

2. That is an outright lie compouned by making a false statement, and he issued it from his office while in an official capacity.

It is unreal to me how much his father got away with. Look at the fawning media coverage he recieved after he killed Mary Jo.

These people are disgusting.

You are very correct in your assessment. I was reading the posts at DU regarding this mess, and they are very, very upset and angry.

They thought they had it all wrapped up after Duke Cunningham's conviction. Duke disappointed many of us. Even a fool knows a week is a lifetime in politics.

After McKinney, and now this, the Democrats look like complete jack asses.

You have nailed it. They do it all the time here in the People's Republic of NY. Two years ago they ran Whatshisname Jones against Chucky Cheese Schumer. Jones lost. Who knew?

What happens with the stupid party is that they allow these clymers like Kennedy and Schumer to get entrenched and then when they actually run a decent candidate as when Romney ran against the Cape Cod Orca in '96, the fight is extremely tough leads the genius leadership to conclude it's not worth the fight and the money. So they give up and that's where we are now. (Except for Hellary because somehow they're deluded that she's the one candidate they can go after.)

Actually, I don't think Any Guy is running against him, but that could change, the filing deadline is June 28th per today's NY Post.

Good post, though, you're right, you can't beat somebody with nobody and no support.

Here's a post from DU--my God, this is incredible:

"Rather, Kennedy stood before all the cameras and said it like it was. No wimpy tears, nada, stating voters come first. Took the blame like a MAN, a STATESMAN at that."

Uh, was that before or after he said he took prescription drugs, and LIED that he was "on the way to a vote" (he was clearheaded enough to use that one, a grasping at straws involving the DC police not stopping anyone who has to make a vote for certain reasons), or was that before or after he drove while under the influence--potentially endangering lives--and said he "didn't recall", or was that before or after he got preferential treatment from the cops?

It's really amazing how they laughed their asses off over Limbaugh, who never drove under the influence that I know of, but are prostrating themselves over this poor victim.
