Here is a little story that Sean Hannity, Limbaugh and the rest will be sinking their teeth in for a while.

Was Patrick drunk as a skunk while driving?
Was Patrick breaking the law?
Is Patrick another Kennedy disgrace?







ROLL CALL reports: According to a letter sent by Officer Greg Baird, acting chairman of the USCP FOP, the wreck took place at approximately 2:45 a.m. Thursday when Kennedy's car, operating with its running lights turned off, narrowly missed colliding with a Capitol Police cruiser and smashed into a security barricade at First and C streets Southeast.

“The driver exited the vehicle and he was observed to be staggering,” Baird’s letter states. Officers approached the driver, who “declared to them he was a Congressman and was late to a vote. The House had adjourned nearly three hours before this incident. It was Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy from Rhode Island.”





He was probably drunk. That seems to be not only a trait of the Kennedy's but with many in Washington.

Hannity was all over this one last night like a cheap suit.
Politics is such a dirty thing....

Of course, Cheney's shooting incident is still fresh in our minds...What happened to that little cover up?


Lets hang him here. Was Patrick Kennedy drunk and involved in a cover up? I think he probably was. I also think Cheney didnt get quite as much coverage for his...unfortunate accident...but hey, nothing is fair.

Drunks as skunks and managing the world. I look forward to at least three weeks of the Kennedy incident, while the Cheney incident was snuffed in two days.

S'ok, conspiracy solved. He was just a bit tipsy on his medication!

I'm trying to fnd the report that i saw on tv yesterday, but it definately said that the first officers on the scene were ordered to leave it for "two seargents" to deal with, and they were'nt allowed to administer a breath test.

I know i'm stating the obvious here but this stinks of a cover up.........and alcohol!

I was trying to compare another Kennedy unfortunate disaster with current disasters in Washington.

Cover ups are everwhere! As i said before, just look at the Cheney shooting incident.
That dissapeared soon enough, with not much coverage from the media, in spite of accounts that Cheney had been drinking!!!!



It was swept under the rug. Ohhh, he had coverage of the accidental shooting...but not of the presumable drunken stupor.

This one on the other hand, will take off like a rocket.

Well cars do kill more people than shot guns.

Cheney did not crash into a police barricade, he accidently shot a friend. Hunting accidents do happen. That's why the news media couldn't make a big deal out of it because the public wasn't buying the coverup angle.

With the Kennedy's you will always find a disaster!

In most states medication is not an excuse. You are driving while impaired, and it will get you the same thing as drunk driving.

For some reason too many people think if they have a prescription, it lets them off the hook - NOT! So it shouldn't make any difference what caused the impairment, it would still be his fault, and just as bad as being intoxicated. In fact, being too tired is considered driving while impaired too, at least in NY.

Yeah i know, it's pretty much the same deal over here in the UK as far as driving whilst groggy on meds is concerned.

It just made me smile that they were trying to pull the old medication chestnut on this one when they were'nt even allowed to breathalize him. If Kennedy is'nt done for something here, then the officers should be for not doing thier job properly.

From what I have read the officers on the scene were trying to do their jobs, their supervisors had other plans apparently and even drove Kennedy home.

ill echo the same sentiments as above. of course he was high or drunk or whatever, after all he is a kennedy. he is bipolar and was an addict so im sure it was a mix of both. nice to see that the cream of the crop is representing us in congress....sheeesh.

Hunting accidents while blitzed happen too. They dont get swept under the rug. They shouldnt.

He wasn't drunk, he was on drugs, silly!

I'm sure you or I could use the same defense

so, boys and girls, the lesson learned today is thus:

the next time you are in trouble with the law, tell them you are a kennedy and you will be given the royal treatment and sent on your way.


I hate the idea of someone getting away with this kind of crime, and it is a crime, simply because of his name.

I believe that the following post will serve to demolish all accusations that I am a political partisan:


Fox News (surprised??) had a session where Dr. Manny Alvarez stated that this was a textbook case of the effects of one of the medications that Kennedy was taking. He also stated that the combination of the two drugs Kennedy was taking was unusual.

So, I'm giving the kid the benefit of the doubt here.

I also think that the Kennedy curse is still alive and very potent.

benefit of the doubt?

taken from the NY Daily News. Some of his past actions


Battled coc aine and alcohol addiction during his senior year at Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., and entered a rehab.

Accused of shoving a screener at Los Angeles airport in 2000. Cops declined to file charges, and a lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed amount.

Accused in 2000 of causing $28,000 in damage to a 42-foot yacht he had rented at Martha's Vineyard over the summer. During the same cruise, the Coast Guard escorted Kennedy's girlfriend off the boat after an argument with him



he's yet another Kennedy living off his family name and getting away with whatever he wants

Okay, alcohol or prescription drugs - same thing - impaired is impaired. What boggles the mind is that Kennedy (or anyone involved), doesn't seem to know this.

Who the hey takes a "sleep aid" before getting behind the wheel? Would any of you admit to that? Would any of you think it would excuse the situation? His PR man should be fired at the very least.

Well dgtempe , the hunting mishap happened on private property not in the public domain. All the VP could have done was kill a lawyer
. A Kennedy could have killed a child.

Exactly, in most states it doesn't matter if its alcohol or drugs its the same charge.
DUI-driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If it were you or me in his place, there would have been wristwarmers and a night in the drunk tank involved. Instead, the shift supervisors hinder further investigation by the investigating officers, give the guy a ride home, heck it wouldn't surprise me if they were offered a nice vacation trip to the Kennedy compound as a thank you gesture.

"Hey guys, if you're ever in the neighborhood of Marthas Vineyard, please stop in, we'll have a grand old time"

The thing is, the doctor on Fox (no friend of the Kennedy's, btw ) said that this was a classic textbook case of people on that drug waking up in the middle of the night and thinking that they were supposed to be somewhere, right now.

That's all.
