Posted on 05/07/2006 1:21:44 PM PDT by EveningStar
It can't be argued that the Patrick Kennedy adventure on wheels is being ignored by the media. But part of the coverage has been suffused in a bit of overweening Kennedy-dynasty sympathy. Washington Post reporter/columnist Dana Milbank, who danced a jig of mockery in orange hunter clothes over Dick Cheney's shooting accident, wrote in Saturday's Washington Post about the "miserable character" who suffered after the crash:
Kennedy tried to ignore the din of shouted questions as he walked to the door, but he couldn't avoid the woman in the front row who asked if he would resign. He shook his head. "I need to stay in the fight," he said. Then the latest victim of the Kennedy Curse disappeared...

The Kennedy Curse has been self-inflicted for the most part.
Now you know it's not his fault.
Beat you to it. [RAAAAAALLLFFF!!]
Seriously, the way Kennedys always get a pass after any moral or traffic-related mishap, it deserves to be called
THE KENNEDY BLESSING. Complete with get out of jail free card.
Having the Neocons in power drove him to drink, therefor it's not his fault.
They're just more visible.
If he can't get a handle on his bi-polar illness and addictions, he needs to be pathetic elsewhere - not the US Congress.
some people make bad choices. Kennedy's are masters of not accepting responsibilty for their bad choices.
I'd cry them a river, but they'd just drive a car into it.
Like father like son......
Look at the bright side: no innocent women died in the making of this latest Kennedy debacle!
Such as the Clintons.
Like Fadher/Modher ... just another drunk coming out of a clan full of drunks, druggies and really screwed up thinking...
How many doped out drunken slobs can one family have?
All normal families have their black sheep, but this is ridiculous!
Is what happens when there ain't no lifeguards at the Gene Pool........Family is advertising for condoms and abortion.......
The Kennedys are "rich trash"---take them out of the Hamptons and drop them in any trailer park in America, and they'd fit right in, character-wise.
My apologies to trailer owners everywhere, the majority of which are more moral and law-abiding.
Oh, the poor victim! Patrick is a victim of addiction, drugs and alcohol...
He has no control over these demons. He has no control over the drive that bedevils him.
So, if Kennedy is a poor, poor victim of the Kennedy curse which seems to involve booze, cars and bodies of water and otherwise, has no control and cannot stop wrecking things, and hitting airline security while he pops pills and binges on alcohol,
how in the heck can anyone trust an out-of-control man to legislate.
If you have a big problem exercising self-control because of your demons, it is in every area of life, not just one.
But, then again, most people in the US don't have the media covering for them, the US Congress gathering around a maimed member and covering good ol' boys, and lots and lots of money.
Fie on the lot of them....I'm coming close to a Patrick Henry moment with this country.
The whole bunch of them should get out of public life and stop inflicting the 'curse' on the rest of us.
You said "lifeguard"? Whose life?
