"Treat me like I am Black", says the Spoiled, Rich, White Rep. Kennedy......
Treat me like I'm black, sez Teddy's son
Fresh from rehab, Rep. Patrick Kennedy said yesterday he wants to be treated like an African-American from Washington if and when he gets charged for crashing his car on Capitol Hill.
Denying that he was drunk and or that he asked the Capitol Police for preferential treatment, Kennedy, a Rhode Island congressman, said he's prepared "in terms of bookings, in terms of mug shots, fingerprints, whatever they might have me do."
"It's what anyone else would have done to them if they were an African-American in Anacostia," Kennedy said in a shaky voice, referring to the mostly minority neighborhood in southeastern Washington.
Later, Kennedy fretted that "there are probably people who want to throw the book at me a little more to prove that they're not treating me special."
It's still not clear whether Kennedy will be called to account for smashing his Ford Mustang into a barrier near the Capitol building at 2:45 a.m. on May 4. He was driving without headlights and nearly collided with a police cruiser.
"The attorney general is still reviewing the events of that night," said Traci Hughes, a spokeswoman for the D.C. attorney general's office. "I can assure you that if any charges are brought in this case, he will be treated the same as anyone else in similar circumstances."
The son of Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) was given a ride home after the wreck by Capitol Police and charged with three minor traffic violations. But he wasn't given a sobriety test, angering some police who complained he was getting kid-glove treatment.
"If you are suspected of driving under the influence, you get arrested," noted Officer Quintin Peterson of the Metropolitan Police Department.
Kennedy, who has a history of substance abuse and depression, said that "10 of the 12 police officers said they did not smell any alcohol on my breath."
But Kennedy also said he should not have gotten behind the wheel after taking Ambien, a popular sleeping aid prescribed to 26 million Americans last year.
"It says on the directions: Do not operate heavy machinery under this drug," he said. "So whether it's alcohol or drugs, any impaired driving is wrong."
Shortly after the accident, Kennedy announced he was seeking treatment for painkiller addiction because he could not remember crashing his car and being driven home by police.
Not like Rep. Patrick Kennedy, fresh from rehab, doesn't have every other perk, the Spolied, Rich, White Congressman wants to be treated like he was Black.
Guess what Congressman, there are some place I would love you to visit and try that, "Treat me like I am Black".
Some of those places will racial profile you, discriminate against you, will violate your rights, may even violate YOU...
Still want to be "treated like a black"?
You do a diservice to all that black people have had to endure and still endure in some places this very day.
To use the standard Race Card that the Democrat Party loves to try and use to get themselves out of trouble is despicable, and hate to tell you Congressman, but your not even black.

Political Money Line's break down of contributions and filings of Patrick J. Kennedy
The Mouth of the Young Dems: Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., son of Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., and no stranger to controversy, has stepped into the gossip pages again.
The Washington Post reports that Kennedy, while delivering a speech to a group of Young Democrats, was a tad more candid than his staff might have liked.
“I don’t need Bush’s tax cut. I have never worked a [bleeping] day in my life,” Kennedy said shortly after presidential candidate Howard Dean addressed the crowd. One of those present told the Post that Kennedy then “droned on and on, frequently mentioning how much better the [Democratic presidential] candidates would sound the more we drank.” The source added that he eventually “had to be stopped by a DNC volunteer.”
Of course you don't, and being a Kennedy, we can well believe you have never worked a day in your life.
I am glad you could let all us poor working stiffs know that about you. See we believe we pay the Government too much money in taxes, and that it is OUR money and we should be able to get some of it back.
Yes, treat you like your black says the spoiled, rich, white boy....
