Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) is a lot like Chlamydia. They are truly the gift that keeps on giving.
Fresh of his stint in "rehab", which is where Kennedy's go when they are not drinking. Kennedy spun his story to cover for the fact that he was drunk and drove his ugly Ford Mustang with no lights on, then ran into a security barrier, and later told a Capitol Police Officer that he was late to a vote (at 3am). The police failed to administer a breath test and even gave Kennedy a ride home. Since Rhode Island was recently cited as home to the worst drivers, I guess he was actually driving well compared to his constituents - who have also given Kennedy a nod for reelection. Stupid drivers make bad drivers.
Upon his release from "camp", Kennedy had the audacity to state that his treatment was similar to what any African-American would have faced in his situation...you know - if they had been driving at 3am with no lights on, crashed into a barrier, and then lied to a police officer.
"It's what anyone else would have done to them if they were an African-American in Anacostia," - Patrick KennedyTo make his point, he gave the whole press conference in black-face.
