"I'd rather go hunting with Dick Cheney, than go driving with a Kennedy ..."

Teddy's son, Patrick (Congressman Kennedy, D-RI), appearing drunk, hit a Capitol Hill barricade at 3:00 a.m. No field sobriety test. Apparently Capitol Police higher-ups called off any investigation. Coverup? Hmm. Guess it runs in the family.

(The Congressman blames it on medication: Phenergan, a gastroenteritis med, and Ambien, a sleeping pill; I've represented a client who was charged with driving under the influence because she (unknowingly) took an Ambien before driving -- the charges were dropped and the pharmacy settled the malpractice case ...).

As Glenn Reynolds says, the Kennedys should just hire drivers. After all, they can afford it.

UPDATE: The Congressman admitted battling addiction and checked himself into the Mayo Clinic -- again. Good for him for admitting and dealing with his problem. On a lighter note, if it's his fifth time as an inpatient at the famed clinic, does that make today Cinco de Mayo?

Like father, like son. At least nobody drowned this time.
