…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!

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.
