“Kennedy, a lifelong bachelor,...”

43 is “life long”? Who edits this stuff?

Engaged in more hard core drug abuse washed down with a 1/5th whisky no doubt.

I HATE those rum-running Kenndys.

The future Mrs. Patches ain't bad looking. Good for him.

Not so good for the 3-year-old stepdaughter, though. If I were the kid's actual father, I'd be filing for sole custody about now (and praying that I didn't get a registered Democrat as the judge in the case).

Dr. Edward Peters, canonical lawyer and advisor to the Vatican's highest court, stated recently that Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not eligible for Holy Communion because he's living in concubinage with a hottie blond....and quite openly, to boot.

Well, here we also have Patches Kennedy openly shacking up with the demure lady pictured in the article. I wonder if he'll engender the same verbal volley as Andy. After all, what's sauce for the spaghetti should be sauce for the corned beef.

thanks for posting that picture..
I hope he finds true and total Happiness..and so she has a three year old child...no big deal, he may very well be a good step father to the child..

he is not one of my favorite people but he is entitled to private life respect...as for his political views they are a problem...and we can criticize them but in this case lets give him the benefit of a doubt..

I wish them happiness.

43 is “life long”? Who edits this stuff?

My guess is that nobody was good enough for daddy, what with appearances to keep.

But daddy's now gone, and finally sonny can live his own life.

Wow, that IS hoping big!!

I`m just hoping Patches doesn`t do harm to his new family in a drunken rage. Amy had better know... once she says those vows, it all changes for her and her daughter.

She should also know prosecution of abuse or any other criminal act by a Kennedy is verboten.

Since leaving Congress, he has been focusing on mental health advocacy and recently accepted a two-year visiting fellowship at Brown University’s Institute for Brain Science.

Brown is trying to figure out how his brain was able to float in alcohol for over 30 years and still keep the man breathing and able to raise and lower his right arm for hours every day.

What a find for that young lady!
