From the Posts's Reliable Sources column(emphasis mine)...

As sometimes happens with Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.), he let his mouth race ahead of his brain Wednesday night at a gathering of Young Democrats at the Washington nightspot Acropolis. After presidential candidate Howard Dean spoke, Kennedy delivered an impassioned peroration against President Bush's tax cut. We hear that Kennedy told the crowd: "I don't need Bush's tax cut. I have never worked a [bleeping] day in my life." With that he got the audience's attention -- the dropping-jaws kind. "He droned on and on, frequently mentioning how much better the candidates would sound the more we drank," a witness told us. "Finally, he had to be stopped by a DNC volunteer." Kennedy's spokesman, Ernesto Anguilla, told us yesterday: "He was talking to the crowd; it was a rally-the-troops kind of speech about the tax cut. He was energizing the crowd and got caught up in it and used an unfortunate word, which he regrets using. . . . And no one pulled him off the stage."



"When life hands you lemons, head down the hall, hide in the closet of your enemy, wait until they get a papercut, then leap out shouting BANZAI and crush the lemon in your hand right over the papercut. Save the peel. Go downstairs to the bar. Order a vodka. Use the peel. Yum!"

Patches is off the wagon again? Well, that will provide entertainment this summer up here. Let's see, he's previously assaulted airport security, had misadventures at sea, and been in drug rehab. Maybe he could get some driving lessons from his Daddy during the summer recess.

Well, hot damn. An honest politician, at last!

The reason is that it is now my cable news network of choice -- because if Iím going to watch the news and be lied to, I want it to be ridiculously obvious that I am being lied to." -- Center for an Informed America, Newsletter #34

From someone who has seen him up close: Please do not mistake honesty for his being a blithering idiot.

I'm not a Star Trek fan myself, but my mom is, and when I was growing up, she had a book called the Star Trek Concordance that I liked to look through. One of the concepts I remember from it was the Prime Directive.
