“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Who is the Dumbest Member of Congress? Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) for Dumbest Member of Congress

And this loud mouth dolt, dumber than Patty's pig, the curdled churlish son of the fetid shallow end of the Kennedy gene pool, has wasted no time in going after his intellectual superior Sen. Scott Brown:

Patrick Kennedy: Scott Brown's candidacy 'a joke'
By Michael O'Brien and Jordy Yager - 02/04/10 05:07 PM ET The Hill

Sen. Scott Brown's (R-Mass.) election has been shown to be "a joke," the son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) said Thursday.

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," Kennedy said Thursday.

Kennedy was referencing some Democrats' thoughts that Brown tried to bump up his swearing-in in order to give Republicans 41 votes, enough to filibuster the nomination of Craig Becker, a controversial nominee to join the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

"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.

Brown, for his part, has denied trying to move up his nomination to block Becker's nomination.

"This is where he shows that when they need him, he's in the tank for the Republicans," Kennedy said.


  1. In his senior year at Phillips Academy at Andover, Kennedy entered rehab for cocaine and alcohol abuse. In 2000, a banner year him, Kennedy shoved a 58 year old female screener at Los Angeles International airport. Very noble, lad. Our chivalrous and gallant little Patrick certainly does not qualify as a member of "Camelot" for jousting with the fairer sex, especially when they are his senior. The airport screener, whose only offense was not recognizing the Congressman (who hails from the other side of the country) and telling him that his carry-on luggage was too big, was awarded a settlement in court. Coincidentally (or not), no criminal charges were pressed. To look at the Chinese calendar, one might say that for young Patrick, 2000 was "The year of the woman." In a domestic with a girlfriend, "Skipper" Kennedy managed to crash and trash a rented yacht, racking up $28,000.00 in damages. That would even make Gilligan blush. The Coast Guard escorted the other half of the less than blissful relationship off of the craft.

  2. In what appeared to be a drunken tirade at a Washington D.C nightspot in 2003, young Mr. Kennedy was addressing a group of young Democrats, who apparently got more than what they bargained for. Congressman Kennedy told the audience that he did not need President Bush’s tax cuts, bragging that he (Kennedy) " never worked a (expletive deleted) day in his life." There is a wise old saying that observes "It is better to be thought of as ignorant, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." Being on a roll, and apparently not ever hearing or subscribing to that conventional wisdom, Congressman Kennedy, whose inhibitions were at the time possibly replaced by libations, continued to banter, and repeatedly so, that political candidates would sound better to us (the voters) if we drank more. (Actually, I kind of have to side with him on that point!) The Patrick Kennedy Open-Mike donnybrook continued, before a Democrat National Committee (DNC) aid physically escorted Kennedy away, and thus saving the blustering Congressman further self-imposed humiliation, and possibly a chance to sleep it off somewhere. But as we often hear in those late night TV commercials, "But wait...there’s more!"

  3. In April of 2001, Kennedy had a driving accident, at a pharmacy in Portsmouth, RI. No charges were filed against the Congressman in that incident, which was just on the heels of his last fiasco, in which he re-entered rehab for problems with prescription medications, which are labeled when needed as not to be taken before driving or operating heavy machinery. The charge is the same, driving while intoxicated, be it booze or drugs, and the abuse of prescription medications before driving is as wrong and as illegal as drinking to excess. Considering that by his own admission, Kennedy "never worked a (expletive deleted) day in his life" (and I believe him), we can rule out his need to operate heavy machinery, but on that fateful night in Washington, he clearly should not have been driving, either. Furthermore, he should have known better.

  4. Speaking of...Some of us - and it warn't me - polished off a not inconsiderable quantity of rum last night while playing cards.

    Phillips Andover, hm? Let it never be said that our finer educational institutions are necessarily a preventative for major assclownage.

  5. He got that "I never worked a in my life" from Unca Ted, who said it first.

  6. We're getting up a ballot initiative here this fall to limit the number of days the Idaho Legislature may be in session in any year. Great idea, but better would be if we went back to the old days and had a Legislative session only every other year, with a limit on the days in session. You get these people together in a room, even Idaho republicans, they think they got to do something or other, when we'd all be better off if they'd just relax at home. I'll vote for this initiative, of course.

  7. A Legislative session every year was the beginning of our fall from grace.
