Patrick Kennedy has left Minnesota and returned to the East. He says he's looking forward to serving the people of Rhode Island. He's probably looking forward to a lot of things, like no more whiz quizzes for a while.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that a Republican congressman with similar substance abuse problems has reached out to help poor little Patrick stay clean and sober This same comgressman reports that although he's been working the program for 20 years, it never dawned on him that Patrick had a problem. So much for the wisdom of recovery.
Patrick said in a public statetment that the next time he's arrested for DUI he wants to be treated like any guy from Anacostia, DC's notorious ghetto. Really. He wants to. He really, really does.
Like I said-- does anyone want to buy a bridge?
