Sour Grapes: Patrick Kennedy says Scott Brown’s candidacy is “a joke”

Somebody sounds like they are just a wee bit upset that daddy’s seat went bye-bye.

From The Hill
Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) castigated Brown for having pushed to be sworn in ahead of schedule to permanently fill the Senate seat left vacant by the congressman's father's death in August.
"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 NLRB (National Labor Relations Board)," Kennedy said Thursday.
"Seven out of ten of Brown's voters were labor households and he stressed that he was independent and while he was originally scheduled to be sworn in next week, they moved it up to today so he could cast his first vote, the most anti-labor, the most anti-what his constituents thought they were voting for when they voted for him," Kennedy said. 
"This is where he shows that when they need him, he's in the tank for the Republicans," Kennedy said.  

I would love to know just what Patrick Kennedy thinks the nickname “41” actually refers to for Scott Brown?  The people of Massachusetts sent Scott Brown to Washington to put the brakes on Obama’s leftist agenda.  If they wanted another person to simply rubber stamp it, they would have voted for Martha Coakley.

If Patrick wants to sport such sour grapes, perhaps we should all send Scott Brown some Mary Jo Kopechne photos to hang about the newly reclaimed People’s Office, just to remind Patrick that the Kennedy name just ain’t what it use to be.

Somebody forgot to study at school when they taught about government Checks and Balances. Thank goodness Americans appreciate it. Even in the blue state of Massachusetts.

Must be a case of his getting cranky when he sobers up....Patrick Kennedy sounds like he could use a drink.

He (and I am sure plenty of others) is just upset that this is going to through a big fat monkey wrench in Becker getting confirmed.

A very scary man who won't be happy until every last one of us is in a union. Becker thinks that our only choice should be which union to belong to and "home visits" during voting times. Great guy.

Sobering up may be hard for Patrick, who takes after his likker-soaked daddy in that respect. Maybe it's why he kept repeatedly talking about "Marcia" Coakley when he was being interviewed by the MSM just before MARTHA Choakley blew the race through the same kind of arrogance, stupidity, and total personality disorder that li'l Paddy Kennedy, the DUI champ of Capitol Hill/Congress League, manifests on any occasion you thrust a mike under his pie hole.

Or maybe the combination of meds and alcohol made him just slur the name "Martha" into "Marcia." Deval Patrick, the schlub of a guv, ain't much better than this moron Kennedy dude, who may just be the last of that moniker to have served in Congress. If he keeps slurring insults at Repubs like Brown, stick a fork in this oinker.
