Patrick Kennedy Exits Rehab

In his bid to become a clean and sober citizen worthy of his calling to the fine and upstanding institution known as, the House Of Representatives, Patrick Kennedy has left rehab after three grueling weeks of intensive rehab.

Man, that must have been hard.

What a brave and courageous man he must be, to have the courage to admit himself voluntarily for substance abuse treatment, after committing actions that could have killed an innocent person (or more). Not only that, the Mayo Clinic must be wonder-workers of the first degree. Short of laying their hands on him (and commanding him to rise up and walk without his chair), their program must be nothing short of miraculous.

Think about it.

Years of substance abuse issues suddenly gone after just three weeks. Three weeks and he's a new man, fit to be back out on the road and conducting the public's business in a fine ethical institution like Congress.

The Kennedy tradition of privilege, continues.

I was shocked at the 3 weeks. I was trying to be supportive of the guy wishing him well in his recovery. He shows by this 3 week stint that he is not serious about it.

Greenland is plagued by sheets of ice, and Iceland has several active volcanoes. Africa has an out of control AIDS virus.

We, on the other hand, have the Kennedy clan.

What did we ever do to deserve that?

I don't know, Mustang. The good ones are dead and we are left with the ones that screw up the country as well as, their own lives. I have no answer for that one.

Maybe God wants to us stay humble? ;)

Too many of the Kennedy clan view themselves as royalty and expect special privileges which, in essence, place them above the law.

Maybe they have a cushy life, but I don't envy them. Are they happy? Doesn't seem like it to me.
