One For The Road

It seems like another chapter is being written in the Kennedy “The Closer You Get The Drunker He Looks” odyssey. Drudge reports that:

“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.), son of Sen. Ted Kennedy.”

Patrick Kennedy nearly slammed into a Capitol police cruiser and then hit a barricade at oh dark hundred hours this morning. Allegedly drunk, Kennedy staggered out of the car and told officers that he was late to a vote, even though the Congressional “last call” for voting was issued three hours earlier. Supervisors responding to the scene ordered the other cops away and Kennedy was driven home.

The story here:

If this is true, why don’t they just call themselves the Congressional Ass Puppet Police and be done with it?
