Kennedy also extolled the virtues of alcohol. He clearly takes after his father.

And no one pulled him off the stage.

I guess that’s the duty of the people of Rhode Island.

But apparently, the Massachusetts-wannabes like having a public drunk representing them.

Can we chalk this up to a drinking problem.

"He droned on and on, frequently mentioning how much better the candidates would sound the more we drank," a witness told us. "Finally, he had to be stopped by a DNC volunteer."

I believe the Post is one of the sites that does not like its articles posted on other web sites. I don't want to get JimRob in any trouble.

Did Hank Williams Jr. write "Family Tradition" about his own family, or about the Kennedy's.

This is only a small part of a much larger piece, most of it NOT about Kennedy.
THIS JUST IN...

• As sometimes happens with Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.), he let his mouth race ahead of his brain Wednesday night at a gathering of Young Democrats at the Washington nightspot Acropolis. After presidential candidate Howard Dean spoke, Kennedy delivered an impassioned peroration against President Bush's tax cut. We hear that Kennedy told the crowd: "I don't need Bush's tax cut. I have never worked a [bleeping] day in my life." With that he got the audience's attention -- the dropping-jaws kind. "He droned on and on, frequently mentioning how much better the candidates would sound the more we drank," a witness told us. "Finally, he had to be stopped by a DNC volunteer." Kennedy's spokesman, Ernesto Anguilla, told us yesterday: "He was talking to the crowd; it was a rally-the-troops kind of speech about the tax cut. He was energizing the crowd and got caught up in it and used an unfortunate word, which he regrets using. . . . And no one pulled him off the stage."

This Kennedy just shows the lack of class that seems to run in the family! They are just a bunch of brain dead, drunken bums!

Hey Poofter Patrick, some of us do work, and welcome any of our hard earned money that stays in our wallets instead being confiscated and then wasted by drunken losers such as yourself.

Well, the Kennedys may be bad but its not like they're that Windshield Murderer lady down in Texas or something. You'd never see one of them leave someone stuck in a car to die a slow horrible death.

Hey, wait a minute ...

Sure, his comments could be chalked up to his drinking problem, but maybe he hasn't really gotten over his coke problem.

I wonder if there's a video of this? It would make great material for the next campaign!

Can't be done. The Washington ComPost is a litigator that only believes in freedom of speech for itself.

With lots of money thanks to a rum running grandfather and a corrupt as heck patriarch.

I would think you are right. "Patches" Kennedy seems to be substituting John Barleycorn for that magical white powder that used to be his drug of choice.
Whatever was of value in the Kennedy double helix string washed out before it got used in the formation of Fatboy, the senior senator from Mass. The following generation wouldn't stand a chance in a world where they would have to work a &%^@$*# day in their life.

What about Bob Dole (in the source article)? Can't we get up a fund to remove him from the scene? He's been an embarassment for far too long.

4th? For a Kennedy, that's barely a warm-up.

Their tolerance is so high, he's got to have 4 just to get out of bed...

Whether it's Patches having another public mental breakdown, or Robert Jr. sounding like he wants a timeout during an interview so he can run to bathroom and mainline some smack, I kinda' enjoy watching the Kennedy family's dance of slow political death and irrelevance .

When John (the only one with national political potential) Jr.'s plane crashed, that was the ringing of the family trees political power. Though Ted will enjoy a Strom Thrumond like political tenure in the senate, it's over for the rest of them.

Having them removed from America's political stage via the classicly undignified vaudevillian hook is appropriate.

A couple of hundred means nothing to drunk liberal elite's. They dump more on the monthly bar bill. But to a decent struggling working class family, it means the braces the kids need, or a well earned family trip.

Democrats are welcome to all the deadbeat "inherited money" crowd. We have the people who earned their money, not the losers living off the luck of being born rich.

No, no. Don't castigate him. I think he's actually right. The tax cuts should go to those who work, and lazy bums like him can even have their taxes raised if it will make them feel better. It'll leave more for those of us with JOBS. I think he's come up with quite a sound (and noble) idea.

Kennedy can donate his whole stipend to the government if he's wants. He didn't earn it, why should he care?
