The Kennedy Police Report: A Headline That Never Goes Out of Style
Dead horse, we know, but even after a couple weeks, this is still hysterical.
"Headed to the capitol to make a vote." Still in the top-ten excuses list, easy. Patrick Kennedy, recovering drug addict and binge drinking congressman, we salute you.
The Providence Journal has a couple extra details (and a way-too-soft lede, if you ask us):
A $300 fine was also suspended, but Superior Court Judge Aida L. Melendez ordered the 38-year-old son of the nation's most famous political family to perform 50 hours of community service for the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington and pay a total of $350 to that club and to a crime victims' compensation fund.
Boys and Girls Club? Lame. He should have to like bathe Robert Byrd or take Adam Putnam to his little league games or something.
