We've Heard It Before

Like father, like son! We should just lock all the Kennedys up. That family is more trouble than its worth.

From Stop the ACLU (head over for a round-up of reactions and witty remarks):

Officers Claim Brass Interfered in Investigation of Rep. Kennedy Incident, ROLL CALL reports… MORE… Police labor union officials asked acting Chief Christopher McGaffin this afternoon to allow a Capitol Police officer to complete his investigation into an early-morning car crash involving Rep. Patrick Kennedy ( D-R.I.).
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."
I caught the beginning of "On the Record with Greta Van Sustern." She had a "Fox News Alert" up. Apparently, Mr. Kennedy is saying he was disoriented from taking the recommended dosage of two drugs he has been prescribed (Ambien and something else). Right. Why didn't he say this earlier?

The "Hit and Run" must be a Kennedy Family Tradition.
