Video: Patrick Kennedy goes nuts over media’s Massa coverage

posted at 6:42 pm on March 10, 2010 by Allahpundit

Go figure that a scion of Camelot, who’s lived up to the family legacy in so many ways, would look dimly upon press coverage of politicians’ misbehavior. Funny, but I don’t remember many Democratic complaints about the sustained media swarm over Mark Foley in fall 2006 while Iraq was falling apart. I’m sure there’s an explanation for the difference somewhere.

This clip makes me nostalgic, and not because Patches is retiring in the fall. Close your eyes and tell me he doesn’t sound eerily similar to another guy named Foley. If not for the vast Kennedy fortune, this tool would be living in a van down by the river.

Sad….pathetic. Looks like someone whizzed in the Kennedy gene pool.

Awesome.

uknowmorethanme on March 10, 2010 at 8:28 PM

I don’t know. I think he has a point. What is going on in Afghanistan is way more important the Massa story.

Patrick Kennedy, you globalist scum, JUST LEAVE THIS EARTH AND TAKE THAT RIDE ON THE HIGHWAY TO HELL TEDDY IS ON!

BobAnthony on March 10, 2010 at 8:41 PM

The last Kennedy who evenly remotely gave a rat’s rear end about our troops was JFK. I remember well when Teddy gave his pull our guys out of VietNam speech in 1969 while the 101st Airborne was fighting it out on Hamburger Hill. Yeah, thanks for the support, Kennedies. Support for our enemies. Let em know you still want to RETREAT and are working hard for same. That will defintely inspire some jihadist scum@#* to go the extra yard to kill one of our guys. It definitely had that effect on our NVA ‘buddies’. These REMF’s are a plague on decent humans and especially to our guys and gals in uniform.

So, Patches:
“You’re helpful criticism is deeply appreciated.
Eff you, very much.”

JimP on March 10, 2010 at 8:53 PM

Wow. What an idiot.

Insomniac on March 10, 2010 at 9:09 PM

Well, Patrick has convinced me. I’m going to leave Brittany alone.

Yoooou betcha!

Dopenstrange on March 10, 2010 at 9:25 PM

I’m glad this stupid POS is not running for re-election. He’s a pathetic piece of garbage, just like his father. May they both rot together, in time, in Hell.

BottomLine5 on March 10, 2010 at 9:44 PM

Well, Patrick has convinced me. I’m going to leave Brittany alone.

HA!

Boxy_Brown on March 10, 2010 at 10:06 PM

My son just asked, “was that Chris Farley?” Cracked me up!

conservnut on March 10, 2010 at 10:07 PM

Stopped clock.

edshepp on March 10, 2010 at 10:09 PM

OMG! Somebody should bring in Chris (the leg tingle)Matthews so the two could spit on each other!

hopefloats on March 10, 2010 at 10:15 PM

Hey Patrick, take Teddy’s advice. Go have a drink!

Poway on March 10, 2010 at 10:28 PM

“You want to know why the American public is fit? They’re fit because they’re not seeing their Congress do the work they’re sent to do,”

Kennedy bellowed after returning from one of his many leaves of absence due to his continual adventures in rehab.

Where’s Poway marching to?
Saber Springs? Ramona?

DSchoen on March 10, 2010 at 10:39 PM

Patches, the media can’t do their job from Obama’s pants.

You, ‘poor’ chap, need treatment.

Schadenfreude on March 10, 2010 at 10:39 PM

defeated 356 to 65, with only five Republicans and 60 Democrats

J_Crater on March 10, 2010 at 10:42 PM

Howard Dean’s a Kennedy?

Who knew?!!!

AAAAaaaaarrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hillbillyjim on March 10, 2010 at 10:48 PM

Hey maybe he’s gonna replace Olbermann!

DSchoen on March 10, 2010 at 10:50 PM

Dude. I’ve noticed several politicians wearing that same wig.

Pazman on March 10, 2010 at 10:51 PM

I want to talk with the people who thought the night his retirement was announced that he’s headed to Massachusetts to start a Senate campaign against Scott Brown. Oh. Really.

Marcus on March 10, 2010 at 10:56 PM

What\’s up with all these drunken Democrats????

David2.0 on March 10, 2010 at 11:05 PM

Another Kennedy prick that thinks he knows it all. Be glad when they all quit the public office, that is all they know. Patches, Daddy says, “Go have a drink now!” Then go drive your car again, don’t miss that vote either.

sharkman on March 10, 2010 at 11:20 PM

I can’t figure out which is the worst:

1. His hair
2. His public speaking skills
3. His voice

My God.

RedNewEnglander on March 10, 2010 at 8:04 PM

4. His politics.

Slowburn on March 10, 2010 at 11:23 PM

What an arrogant a$$hole. He got his father’s temper and petulance (and frankly, I’m sorry, his drunkenness), while his brother looks like the late Senator and has some semblance of class. Remember what Edward Jr. said at Teddy’s funeral, as opposed to what Patrick the Shithead said? Hmmm mmm.

NathanG on March 11, 2010 at 1:22 AM

Kennedy is a few croutons short of a salad bar.

AaronGuzman on March 11, 2010 at 1:51 AM

Good catch there Allahpundit, but is it too close to call just yet? Let’s review and compare the tapes, shall we? Speaking of which, I should mention that I have the “Best of Chris Farley” on DVD. It was the tribute edition.

Remember Allahpundit, Matt Foley [motivational speaker] was down in the basement drinking coffee for four hours prior to being introduced to the kids [David Spade & Christina Applegate]. Let’s just say his character was a litle wired.

An exit question for this thread should have been, “What does Patrick Kennedy really want to be when he grows up.” If he is true to himself, he’ll respond the same way Christina Applegate’s character did.

Americannodash on March 11, 2010 at 2:07 AM

That looked like a cocktail consisting of booze and pills.

He was all wee weed up.

Meremortal on March 11, 2010 at 3:18 AM

Is it just me or does Patrick Kennedy Sound like he “lives in a van down by the river!”

Advocate For Change on March 11, 2010 at 3:27 AM

I should read the words of the great AllahPundit, then watch the video, then comment. My choice to watch the video, comment, then read has caused me to sound kind of stupid.

Advocate For Change on March 11, 2010 at 3:30 AM

Ironic. Kennedy complains about only two press members in the building on a video which is being robustly viewed over the internet.

Dude, the ‘National Press Corpse’ has gone the way of the Pony Express and the Dodo bird….chuckle

percysunshine on March 11, 2010 at 6:54 AM

Has Kennedy been overindulging in drugs again?

zoyclem on March 11, 2010 at 7:53 AM

A perfect example why the founders of this nation used to tar and feather royalty.

Hening on March 11, 2010 at 7:53 AM

All aboard; the failboat is departing…..

To those that said Patches would run for Delahunt’s seat, well, har har har!

5. His sense of entitlement.

roy_batty on March 11, 2010 at 9:31 AM

He needs the 32 step program.

faol on March 11, 2010 at 10:14 AM

Sounds like someone had about 36 Irish Coffees for breakfast. A rant like that could only result from a healthy dose of booze + a healthy dose of caffeine.

Celebrating St. Patty’s Day a tad early I guess.
