BREAKINGEST FRIDAY AFTERNOON EVER: WE DROVE PATRICK KENNEDY INTO REHAB
So, uh, now we feel a little bit bad. 'Cause, we were just having a bit of fun, you know, and considering that the two options available for Patrick Kennedy's weird behavior were either a) plain ol' Kennedy-approved alcohol and b) hilarious drug mix-up, we thought, well, no harm.
But now he's headed out to Detox Mansion for addiction to prescription medication. Which sort of explains everything -- except why the Capitol Police just let him go home the other night, the question that will allow us to keep writing about this without feeling guilty.
We're kind of wondering just what Kennedy is addicted to -- his middle-of-the-night sleep-driving could be caused by a lot of things, but we've never actually heard of anyone being addicted to Ambien and Phenergan, the experimenter we quoted earlier today notwithstanding.
We wish Kennedy a speedy recovery and hope this will encourage other lawmakers in similar situations to seek help.
Seriously, 109th Congress: What is up with you guys?
