#2 Must have come from the shallow end of the Kennedy gene pool.

#5 Great to have nothing to lose, ain't it, Patrick?
Just get out there on the national stage and...be yourself. Quite liberating, I'll bet.

#6 I'm sorry this man is bi-polar. While the term is certainly overused, those who really fit the diagnosis don't have it easy.

OTOH I don' think he ever belonged in Congress and it's a Good Thing he'll be gone soon.

#7 I agree with both tu3031 and lotp, and that ain't easy :-)

Patches needs to confront and surmount his personal demons. I don't know what they are and I wouldn't render a medical diagnosis based on what I've seen so far, but this man shouldn't be in Congress. He needs to get his personal life in order and find some interesting, useful and less stressful work.

#8 Hey, he don't take his meds...not my problem.

#9 he has no problem taking meds, apparently

#10 Doubleplusundead has a post of Patches' history of yelling. As they note, he needs to use his "inside voice". Another moronic outburst on Youtube

#11 lotp, I would submit that this man doesn't suffer from any disorders, he enjoys every minute of them.

And that's the real problem.

#12 As Boston columnist Howie Carr has noted these types of outbursts occur after lunch, suggesting young Kennedy had ingested a bad ice cube.

True story: a co-worker of mine was testifying before a congressional panel recently, giving a thoughtful and thorough answer to idiotboy's question. Patches began screaming at him, hurling wild and baseless accusations (it was after lunchtime, natch).

Afterward he came up to my coworker, apologized, said he didn't mean it, and that he'd only done it as that's what his constituents expect of him.

I woulda punched him right in the liver. When I was charged, I'd say I assaulted his conscience. Nobody would convict me due to lack of evidence

Frank G this works on so many levels you could have been a Russian novelist.

#16 If you hit him in the liver, I doubt he'd feel it. Kennedy livers have powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men...

#17 Good grief.

Obviously he holds his likker well - he's not even slurring his words....
