Betsy Newsmark scrutinizes the Captiol Hill police officials’ treatment of Rep. Pat Kennedy:
What does seem strange is that the Capitol Hill police would not have done a sobriety or breathalizer test and just have taken him home. Can you imagine what people would have been saying if this had happened to Tom DeLay? I bet we all hope that we would be shown the same deference and consideration if we we were found driving erratically early in the morning and then drove into a barrier. But that is the Kennedy way.
Brian Maloney covers talk radio coverage of the story and NYTimes’ burial of the case.
Brian at Influence Peddler wonders:
Are you, like me, waiting for the indignant press conference when the DC press corps unleashes their venom at the way Kennedy is dodging them on this story?
Lou Cannon, president of the Capitol Police Union told CBS News:
“The officers on the scene smelled alcohol about him and based on their experience believed him to be intoxicated.”
“I think because of who he is courtesies were extended.”
Reader Dave writes that membership in the Kennedy clan has its privileges:
Drinks at the Hawk & Dove: $40
Phenergan & Ambien: $75
Crashing your Mustang convertible while intoxicated: $4,000
Being driving home by Capitol Police: PRICELESS
Lifelike Pundits diagnoses “A culture of car crash cover-ups.”
Thomas Lifson at The American Thinker weighs in on Kennedy and Cynthia McKinney.
