quote of the day

Patrick Kennedy certainly is a Man of the People.

Kennedy's decade in the House has been marked by prodigious fund-raising, occasionally bad behavior (such as shoving an African-American airport security worker) and a tendency to blurt out things he quickly regrets. "I don't need Bush's tax cut," Kennedy shouted to a shocked crowd of young Democrats in 2003. "I have never worked a f-----g day in my life."

The Democratic operative said: "He's like the boss' son who sort of falls into the family business and doesn't really belong."---Lloyd Grove

But he's a Kennedy: A champion of the poor and the downtrodden--- especially those who never worked a fucking day in THEIR lives, either.

Kennedys are known for their Rich Liberal Democrat Compassion. They LOVE to give away taxpayer other people's money to leeches and parasites while keeping their own inherited fortunes for themselves. They also spend a LOT of time just keeping their own spoiled criminal asses out of jail.

That's hard work.


Just got back from a week vacation...did ya miss me?

I'm back and what struck me about this story was through (via your blog) all that you have gone through made me aware that this idiot has no plans to get on the straight and narrow.

I learned that you have to FIRST ADMIT you have a problem before recovery can start. It seems to be this jerk is preferring to use the more respectable "prescription addiction" excuse, rather than come straight out LIKE YOU HAVE HAD THE GUTS TO DO and say "I AM A DRUNK. " .... "just like my mommy (Joan) and my daddy (Senator Stupid)."

This rehab crap for him is just a way to stay out of least HE didn't KILL ANYBODY....yet.

Maggie is correct.

My Momma always tried to teach me that if I couldn't say sumthin good about a person just don't say nuthin at all. But of course I never paid much attention to Momma and usually have been the worse for it. But I just can't think of anything 'good' to say about the Kennedy family except that Arnold's wife Maria probably looked pretty good in a T back..way way back.

It only goes to show the old adage "Do I say, not as I do"
Off Cape Cod and the infamous Kennedy Compound, evironmentalists have said is the ideal place for an alternate energy windmill farm. Guess who is screaming the loudest about it blocking thier view of the ocean?
The Kennedys of course. So I guess young Patrick is indeed carrying on the family tradition in his actions and words recently.

All political points aside (and the obvious preferential treatment that a Kennedy generally receives)... there are easier things in life than having Ted and Joan Kennedy as parents. Please don't flame with the obvious need for personal responsibility. There are just easier things than being born of that troubled pair. (Patrick's sister was battling cancer in her thirties.)

A Kennedy will always give you the shirt of someone else's back.

They guy is a fucktard just like his daddy. This rotten fruit did not fall far from the tree.

Posted by: FLorida Bill on May 8, 2006 12:00 PM - YEAH NOT IN MY BACKYARD! Yet, they truly car! They people that elect this family should be ashamed of themselves!

Posted by: Anastasia on May 8, 2006 12:48 PM

Yeah they can car all they want - I really meant care - oops!

"A Kennedy will always give you the shirt of someone else's back."

... and make you pay to launder and press his shirt.

The Kennedys definitely promote the democratic concept of supporting trash 'n troublemakers with taxpayer money. If all people on welfare were honestly in need, and not leveraging the system... supporting their monthly government windfall with drug sales, babies for profit, the sense of entitlement... then we'd see public aid serve its original purpose. Aid for those in need (and here legally).

I can't say anything about Ted Kennedy that hasn't already been said. His handling of Chappaquiddick just covers his career from A-Z. But still... the kids have lousy parents. It's great when people overcome their obstacles, and certainly the family money would make things easier. But Lloyd Grove's article says it best, how even party members see Patrick Kennedy as troubled. The weight of the world on his shoulders.

That bizarre comment about never working a day in his life, hey... very bad public statement. But it's probably been shoved own his throat so much. We all get defensive.

Some of the Kennedy kids I do feel sorry for. I hope Patrick can get help and get better.
