The Kennedy Curse

By Larry Mondello

OOOHHH the Kennedy Curse strikes again. What is it about that darn clan?
God must love the Kennedys. That's why he gave us so damned many of them. Congressman Patrick says no worries, he was not drinking alcohol when he was driving around in the middle of the night with no lights on and hit a traffic barrier. He now says he was on Ambien.

Wow, Congressman, that makes us feel much better. You weren't drunk, you were asleep! News flash for the Kennedy Compound: sleeping pills impair your driving, no matter how much dad taught you about driving after a night of Congressional research. The Kennedy way is to blame the pills, which must flow like M&Ms in Hyannisport. Throw the book at his Kennedy ass. Oh, and anyone who believes he wasn't drinking ... ok ... so no one believes that.

By the way, in blogger spellcheck, Hyannisport comes up with suggested change: Hangover.

You do the math. Oh, the mystery of the curse.

UPDATE: Rep. Kennedy now says he is checking himself into rehab for Rx drug addiction. He also says he received no preferential treatment. He was treated just like any other Kennedy. Watch video of his short statement today here

Update #2: I watched him read his statement. In all seriousness, I have a bit of respect for him and what he said and what he's doing for his problem. But if his depression is that severe and difficult to control, how can he stay in office? I sympathize with him as a person, not as a congressman. I also didn't care for the shot at the end about mental health parity. A statement that as a sitting congressman, you suffer from mental illness is no place for a political statment about a related issue. I'll stop now.

I'm starting to think the only Kennedy who wasn't actually retarted was the retarted sister.

Just because you are depressed i.e. saddled with a mental illness doesn't mean you can be a congressman. Heck he probably has a worker's comp claim.
