The Joke's on Patches (Patrick Kennedy)
The American Thinker ^ | February 05, 2010 | Clarice Feldman

Posted on 02/06/2010 3:41:17 AM PST by Scanian

Yesterday, The Hill reported that Patrick ("Patches") Kennedy took a swipe at Scott Brown:

"Scott Brown's (R-Mass.) election has been shown to be 'a joke,' the son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) said Thursday.

Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) castigated Brown for having pushed to be sworn in ahead of schedule to permanently fill the Senate seat left vacant by the congressman's father's death in August.

'Brown's whole candidacy was shown to be a joke today when he was sworn in early in order to cast his first vote as an objection to Obama's appointment to the NLRB,' Kennedy said Thursday."

Today Howie Carr of the Boston Herald reviews the Kennedy family's "greatest hits" as he reports that Patrick's reelection to Congress from Rhode Island is in jeopardy:

Really? Kennedy doesn't think the people of Massachusetts deserve representation if that vote doesn't match his personal agenda? I wonder how that will play with The People of Massachusetts.

Interesting that he would call it a “joke”. I guess sometimes we make fun of things we don’t understand. He is afraid.

The end of the Kennedy clan’s corrupt, immoral and unethical influence on American politics is coming into view; I can’t wait. After 80 plus years, this malodorous crew will finally be expunged, and not soon enough. There is a God, and He is just. Amen.

With the passing away of the swimmer (now the floater), the remaining Kennedy clan (including the present governor of California) will just quietly get into the family Oldsmobile and ride away into the sunset.

Kennedy’s elitist attitude has a hand in the reason people of Massachusetts went for Brown. How dare a commoner usurp the Kennedy entitlement!

A "joke" Patches? Why is it here in Rhode Island your handlers won't even let you in front of a camera? Could it be because everytime you open your mouth you sound like you are so hopped up on pills it's absurd?

Don't worry Patches...the "joke" is coming soon and it will be on you...

Patches is the joke that keeps on giving, and this November his rehab will be on full alert after the election to dry him out again. Wonder how long that Kennedy cash will last when the whole bunch them have no jobs. If it wasn’t for the Federal government job, what would Patrick be qualified to do?

The funny thing is that the reason for Scott Brown's early election was directly caused by Uncle Teddy changing the rules for an early election in Mass.

I guess Patches... the joke's on you.

The real joke is the Congress of the United States, and mambers like “Patches” who were trying to shove through every stinking bill they could before Brown’s arrival.
Going against the Constitution by voting with an ineligible voter.Against the sworn oath that each of them took.

If Scott brown is a joke, the Democrats arent laughing.

There is only one word association here JOKE=PATRICK KENNEDY.

Patrick is a nobody whose only credentials are his last name. This shallow individual is part of the elitist, titled group of officials that have no real clue on how to govern. “this is Teddy’s seat, and only a Kennedy or Kennedy clone should occupy it”. Please go away!!!
Brown has it right. It is the people seat. Vote them out as soon as possible. Remember this stimulus, the cap and trade and Obamacare. Vote them out in 2010, 2012, 2014 or whenever we can get them out.
The only people who are laughing now is anyone that knows who Patrick Kennedy really is. The dems are scared....really scared.

Hey Pat Kennedy. Brown's election was a joke - a joke on you, a joke on Teddy, & a joke on Obama.

And a good joke it was. I haven't stopped laughing since. My stomach hurts, I'm laughing so hard.

Why aren't you laughing, too, soon-to-be-ex-rep. Kennedy?

Have a few drinks Pat, & maybe you will see the humor in it.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA

Since he is a Kennedy, the first follow-up question would have to be, “Do you remember where you parked your car last night?”

How dare the people of Massachusetts elect someone other than the heir to an organized crime legacy and notorious boozing and and womanizing clan.

Papa Joe Kennedy was a world-class crook and his clan had a history of immorality.

That's what the people of Massachusetts found acceptable for more than half a century.

Or the people of Rhode Island. They are starting to wake up and figure out that the Kennedy’s and others of their ilk have lead them from prosperity to perdition in the last 50 years.

Kennedys!

They recklessy drive a car off a bridge and leave a helpless women to drown.
They recklessy crash a plane into the ocean and kill a pregnant wife and sister in law.
They die recklessly playing football while downhill skiing.
They recklessly use drugs and alcohol leaving a trial of cover-ups, wrecked vehicles, property and unknown personal injuries.

Then, cap this off with the patriarch Ted's reckless lifelong political attacks on America's values, institutions and very sovereignty.

The "joke" is that any Kennedy is ever trusted with any position of political power in this country.

Nope—the joke’s on the kennedys and the end of the dynasty that started with criminals and ended with one.

Scott Brown needs to reach out across the aisle, grab this child by the neck, put him in back of his truck and drop him off at a detox.

With the passing away of the swimmer (now the floater),

Given where he justly is now after Saint Peter pulled the "down forever" lever when the Swimmer arrived at the Pearly Gates, the better name now for him would be the "Sweater" or the "Melter."

I think the good people of MASS have had enough of the bootlegging Kennedy Clan.
Patches is all that's left.
He defines "Scraping the bottom of the barrell.. (Whiskey barrell that is). . . . . . .

Well just as people said they didn’t want to buy any Oldsmobiles now they are saying no more buying the Kennedy brand either. Should have been the other way around.
