Howie Carr’s column on Rep. Patrick Kennedy asks a question that crossed my mind regarding Kennedy’s rant on the House floor this week: “Is it perhaps time for the House of Representatives to install Breathalyzers in front of the podium?” In his rant Kennedy called out the national press as “despicable” for paying insufficient attention to Dennis Kucinich’s goofy antiwar resolution.
Carr has a serous point. He also asks: “[I]n the aftermath of Rep. Ambien’s spittle-flecked harangue, why isn’t anyone mentioning his utter lack of gratitude? I mean, when it comes to reporting on Patches’ odious clan, the national press corps has indeed been despicable.”
