Patrick Kennedy, US Congressman and member of the elitist, drug, alcohol, and woman abusing, Kennedy clan is a little upset that Scott Brown actually wanted to be seated sooner rather than later. Brown has waited the requisite 10 days and he should not have to wait longer but Kennedy did not see it that way:
Kennedy (D-R.I.) told The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room on Thursday, “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 (National Labor Relations Board).” Boston Herald
Was shown to be a joke? I guess to Democrats when a Republican wins by a healthy margin it is a joke but when a Democrat (say Obama) wins by a healthy margin it is a mandate to change the entire country and impose Socialism.
The funny thing is that Brown waited the required amount of time and the rest was an obvious attempt at stalling and what is even funnier is that Kennedy called this a joke even though his father, Ted Kennedy, was sworn in the day after he won election to a seat that was preserved for him.
Of course the idea that an everyday guy like Brown won is beyond reason for the Kennedys who buy political seats and then use them to impose their will on the rest of us. That is, when they are not out getting drunk or drugged and hurting or killing people.
Patrick Kennedy will be lucky to get reelected this year. His daddy is worm dirt and he has no one to protect him. He has had several stints in rehab and has a few accidents while impaired along the way. People are not too interested in putting him back in office.
No, the days of substance abusing Kennedys in office being chic are over and Camelot was buried along with Teddy.
The real joke is that Patrick Kennedy is in office and that people reelected Ted for so many terms. All one needs to do is read the writing on the wall.
Then again it is hard to see much through bloodshot eyes.
Scott Brown responded to Kennedy and demonstrated what class and leadership look like.

The government health care takeover calls for all medical records to be electronic. Electronic records can make life a lot easier and I have seen some amazing technology with regard to electronics and medical application. But, as with all electronic records, there is a chance that data will be compromised and someone who shouldn’t will gain access to the records. Look how many electronic data bases, government and private, have been compromised.
Patrick Kennedy said that sexually transmitted diseases and abortions will not be required to be reported in electronic medical records. The cynic might wonder about the abortions. Is this so they can be paid for with taxpayer money and not be recorded?
Probably not. Kennedy is worried about the data being compromised and people being embarrassed by it. Kennedy should know about items in medical records that could be embarrassing given his treatment for substance abuse.
Kennedy, probably without realizing it, told us that the electronic records might not be so secure after all. If they were then why would he want these items omitted (upon patient request)? They are not omitted from paper records because there is not a great a chance that they will be compromised. By asking that they not be included he has indicated that there is a concern that they would be inadvertently released. Therefore, the electronic records will not be as secure as the government wants you to believe.
I am having trouble understanding why these two items were selected by him. The left is proud of its support of abortion and it is a badge of honor for a young liberal woman to have an abortion and the younger the better.
Perhaps the STD issue is to allow people to exclude a positive HIV test.
No matter what the reason, Kennedy gave us a glimpse as to how secure the records will be.
He is not so sure or he would not want certain things omitted.

From the right, of course
Representative Patrick Kennedy, the last Kennedy in political office and son of the late Ted Kennedy, is warning about violence because of the anger over the out of control government. He actually said it was about the health care debate and the example he gave dealt with that issue, but like all politicians he misses the bigger point. The debate is about out of control government.
Kennedy warned of the potential violence and used a sign he saw at a protest. Ten thousand signs bearing the words “Bury ObamaCare with Kennedy” were distributed at a protest by a group that opposes abortion. Patrick is of the opinion that this is disgusting and could lead to violence. After all, as he reminds us, his family has seen its share of violence. His uncles were assassinated and his father killed a woman. Of course, the 9-12 protest had nearly a million people in attendance and none of them were arrested. None of them committed crime and they cleaned up their trash when they left. The law breaking typically takes place when the left is involved in a protest.
I have no problem with the slogan. Ted Kennedy was the champion of government run health care and he claims to have made it his life’s work. The slogan indicates that we should bury his dream with him because the concept is a bad one.
I know that Patrick and others from the left will likely disagree and that is their right. I would find it hypocritical for those who used Ted Kennedy’s death to try and pass this health care takeover plan to oppose those who mention his death in wishing its defeat. Remember, Kennedy was not even cold when the Democrats were discussing doing it for him and fulfilling a dream he did not live to see.
To be upset with a slogan after that shameless display is beyond the pale.
The good news in it all is that Ted Kennedy has now been sober for 4 weeks.
Of course, that is assuming they do not serve scotch in Hell.
As an aside, where was Patrick Kennedy when the violence and hatred was directed at George Bush?
