Patches Will Not Seek Reelection

Maybe he took a look at his poll numbers and saw a steep uphill climb.  Maybe he didn’t think Scott Brown’s election was such a joke after all.  Or maybe, just maybe,  he never really wanted to hold public office but was never given a choice by his father.  Whatever the reason, unless a Kennedy cousin throws their rat in the ring, 2011 will mark the first time that not a single Kennedy will be serving in Congress.

Bringing down the curtain – at least for now – on Camelot and one of the most storied political dynasties in the nation’s history, U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy, son of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, says he is not running for re-election.

In a taped message intended for broadcast Sunday night and obtained by the Herald, the R.I. Democrat, looking haggard and speaking directly into the camera, said it was time to leave Congress after 16 years.

Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last!

Update 02/12/10: Endangered in Mass pointed out my typo in the first paragraph, but since rat is a good description of many Kennedys, I’m letting it stand.

  3. Loppy, check out the history of the Alabama shooter. She killed her brother in MA 24 years ago when Bill Delahunt was the DA. She was never booked or had charges brought against her! Delahunt is a Congresscritter somewhere on the South Shore and now and facing a GOP challenge. Woo hoo !I hope the media gets its teeth into this story. I’m in TX, so if I do not have my facts right, forgive the mistake.
