Doctors now prescribing Jim Beam

Full disclosure. I love the Kennedys. Unless one of them drives me off a bridge or into a barricade, I don't see that changing. Ever. And while I loves me some Kennedys, I know enough to never, ever accept a ride home from one.

Clearly, Patrick Kennedy was still drunk when he offered up an explanation for his accident. He said prescription medication made him all loopy and out of sorts.

"Sometime around 2:45 a.m., I drove the few blocks to the Capitol complex believing I needed to vote," he said. "Apparently, I was disoriented from the medication."

Oh, Patrick, dear drunk Patrick. At least we know even inebriated, this Kennedy has his constituents first and foremost on his booze-soaked mind.

It's too bad he couldn't hire away some of Cheney's spin team. I sure hope he tried.

I wonder what he thought was disorientedly voting for:

a) congressional pay raises
b) special treatment for congressional moving violations
c) the same way as Uncle Teddy
d) Rhode Island's forcible takeover of Delaware so as to no longer be the tiniest state ever

Hey, as a former resident of the great State of Rhode Island, I'll have you know we are the drunk driving capital of the nation! Don't fuck with us, we'll run you over.
