The fruit never falls . . .

. . . . far from the tree:

Kennedy. Drunk. Auto accident. Lying. Coverup by cops.

More HERE.

[UPDATE] Before all you Drudge scoffers pile up, CNN is now reporting the same story, after Kennedy "issued a statement."

It must truly be pleasant to live in a make-believe world where it doesn't matter what you do, because all the cops are your friends. And there's an army of smart lawyers to talk your way out of worse trouble.

Maybe tonight I'll drive on up to Capitol Hill, get a snoot full, crash my car into a barricade, and see if the Capitol Police get somebody to drive me home.

It's times like these when folks realize that I'm one of those populist, farmer, libertarian Republicans, rather than one of those rich, Eastern banker Republicans.

[UPDATE -2 // Friday] This story just gets better and better. Someone on his staff read where taking ambien can make you sleep-walk. So THAT'S what must have happened. See HERE. But, of course, since his lips are moving, we know he's lying. See HERE.

It's amazing how this story, or like ones, seem recurrent in this family. It'd make for a terrible family tragedy, and sometimes does, but hanging over it is the apparent exemption of the family from the same rules the rest of us must adhere to.

I wonder why?

But then I also wonder why politics seems to so favor them. People elect them, but why?

The Gentleman Farmer's problem with the latest Kennedy debaucle is actually quite personal. Compare the Congressman's treatment by law enforcement officials for DUI driving and causing an accident on the Capital Grounds to GF's own Capital Hill law enforcement encounter: he was ticketed for jaywalking early on a Sunday morning. Perhaps the plan is something like: if we can't get the Kennedys off the roads, we can at least discourage pedestrians from getting in their way!
