Patrick Unleashed!

Justin Katz

Rep. Patrick Kennedy gives the impression of a politician sprinting to catch a departing train. Take as evidence of the impression the fact that Patrick Crowley loves this clip of Kennedy in action while filling his seat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee:

No constituents to the right of the aforementioned progressive union extremist should take it as given that Representative Kennedy actually represents them in any real sense. He's now in Congress to prove his Liberal Cub bona fides and play rock star to the far left.

He's also proving that he doesn't know what the word "alien" means. His staff should buy him a dictionary... or show him that Sting video.

Details of the above session may be found here.

Buckle up everybody, it looks like Patches is off his meds.

Patches needs to read Title 8 of the US Code so he can find definitions relating to Immigration and Nationality(the area of law covered by Title 8)because as a legislator he has an obligation to know what he's talking about.Am I serious?I just threw that out to say what a normal person would do.I don't know how a drug/alcohol dependent mentally ill basket case can be expected to know much of anything.The wheels are coming off fast and if the people of RI re-elect this disgrace,I can't begin to think what possesses them.
Personally,I think we need to give Pat Crowley what he so freely gives others-a 0 rating here,meaning ignore that he exists.Don't reference him or his actions.He craves attention.Don't satisfy his wants here.Just a suggestion.His posts aren't really offensive enough to dump,but if no one answers him,he'll get tired of it.

"The wheels are coming off fast and if the people of RI re-elect this disgrace,I can't begin to think what possesses them."

Remember the old commercials about "hire the handicapped"?

The voters of Rhode Island took it to heart.

"Buckle up everybody, it looks like Patches is off his meds."

Oh, no, it's more like he's on an awful lot of meds and maybe more. Whoever his special congressional staff "minders" are better look after their ward a little more closely and hold on to his keys.

I've seen him in action before and I really haven't ever seen him look worse than that. He'd be charged extra on an airplane with bags under his eyes like that.

This clip has been going all around the nation tonight. People are just stunned that someone like this is actually a sitting member of Congress.

PS Pat Crowley actually thinks this looks good for his side? Sure, yeah, whatever. Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.

I just noticed the comment below on the YouTube site where this clip is posted.

"NEARhodeIsland (7 hours ago) Patrick Kennedy you rock out loud!!!! Great job!"

While I'm going to assume this was just Pat trying to be supportive, non-conformist, and/or funny, does it really look good for the NEARI to have it's organization's name out there in the public sphere as seeming to support someone who appears not to be running on all cylinders, is babbling incoherently, and perhaps may be under the influence of something, whether it's prescribed or self-prescribed?

Perhaps we should inquire of the NEARI as to what their official position is?

Things will end badly for Fredo Kennedy. He doesn't have Daddy around anymore to keep him occupied and out of trouble. A true embarrassment to his family and to this state.

Posted by: Tim at November 20, 2009 6:48 AM

Now now. Don't diss Patrick. Otherwise NEARI will file a grievance against you.

After all, in his own way he's a member of NEA, just like all the other bought and paid for Democrats.

Funny he's so concerned about illegal aliens being "people too," but so unconcerned about the massive harm being inflicted on children by teachers unions.

Patches, aren't children "people too?"

Posted by: Ragin' Rhode Islander at November 20, 2009 8:24 AM

This is just an embarrassment. I couldn't believe when I saw people on RIFuture applauding this nonsense. All this shows is a raving lunatic.

Posted by: Dan at November 20, 2009 11:33 AM

I'll start by getting the obvious out of the way first. I won't make fun of his past/current dependency on alcohol or drugs because it's not something I'd wish on someone, but I was a little shocked at how he looked. He is either not getting enough sleep or doing something he shouldn't but he's not even close to what is normal for him. Also, object to alien if you must but it is defined as a resident born in or belonging to another country who has not acquired citizenship by naturalization.

Now the thing I really object to is his reference to bigotry. I think many people, when it comes to immigration, aren't concerned with race so much as they are the bad eggs that come here to milk the system rather than work hard and become citizens like countless immigrants before them. I don't care what shade of color you are if you want to make an honest living and provide better conditions for your family. I object to those that do it by not paying taxes, taking up space in the ER with no intention of ever paying the bill and don't intend to legalize their status here through citizenship or a green card.

I checked the responses on RIF,and obviously I don't pay attention the Clown,but Jerzyk's response gave me pause.
He's not a clown or a dope,and in fact he's an attorney and has been active in the whole immigration debate for quite a few years now.Doesn't he realize that as an attorney he has a responsibility not to support deliberate misuse of legal terminology.Matt knows very well what "alien" means in reference to immigration matters.He also knows that "undocumented"appears nowhwere in the law.
It's actually impossible to be an "undocumented immigrant"because all immigrants are by definition persons who have been issued valid resident alien documentation.Is Matt so far in the tank for this cretin Kennedy that he can't call him on it?What a shame.
Most of the other commenters are the usual left wing robots.

Posted by: joe bernstein at November 20, 2009 12:54 PM

Joe, you're kidding right?? Because Matilda Jerzyk is a lawyer she has some level of credibility? lol Show me any issue where she takes on the hard left. Any issue.

Posted by: Tim at November 20, 2009 5:47 PM

I don't expect Jerzyk to take on the hard left-he is a charter member,but he should know better than to get involved with defending the ravings of this demented head of hair masquerading as a Congressman.I think Jerzyk puts himself in an indefensible position precisely because he IS a lawyer and has to know better.I think jerzyk is trying to be Jack McConnell Jr.He seems to have developed the same speaking mannerisms.Mainly the "outrage"at everything that he doesn't like.He sometimes seems like a parody of a radical.
All that said,he is pretty intelligent.I never try to win an argument by diminishing someone's intellect if I know they are smart-but that doesn't insulate them from acting in a stupid way.
Most of the Obamabots just rant on cue-they would definitely drink cyanide laced Kool Aid if the omniscient Barry said to.(Note:We raided a Kool Aid packaging plant in Illinois a few times back in the 70's-it was as filthy as a cesspool-I wouldn't drink that stuff if you paid me).
Have a Happy Thanksgiving Tim!!
BTW Kennedy is the gift that keeps on giving to John Loughlin.
Anyone want to take a pool on when Patrick finally implodes for good?

Posted by: joe bernstein at November 20, 2009 10:23 PM

I quess that you don't like the long rant from a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Instead you enjoy the short pithy "You lie" comment from another member.

Posted by: Phil at November 21, 2009 7:40 AM

Some call it pithy...others call it truth.

Posted by: JTR1971 at November 21, 2009 9:35 AM

Gee,how original Phil-another "equivalence"argument from the left.
Suspension of disbelief must be a genetic trait of leftists.Maybe that's why Jerzyk can't see the forest for the trees.

Posted by: joe bernstein at November 21, 2009 2:22 PM


I don't care about leftists or lawyers or any of that. I spent the day dispatching thanksgiving turkeys and drinking brown. I created a list ... a hit list if you will.. and you can rest assured that you were not on that list. Others though were not as lucky.

Posted by: Phil at November 21, 2009 6:28 PM

In the hopes that I'm missing something: "a hit list"?

Posted by: Justin Katz at November 21, 2009 6:33 PM

Phil-that's no relief to me,because I am on a few peoples' already.And they're not political,and I'm not trying to be funny.And I don't tend to be unprepared either.I have quite a few folks I put away for some serious stuff recently out or getting out.A few of the worst are already dead(thankfully).

Posted by: joe bernstein at November 21, 2009 6:58 PM

Joe and Justin

I raised turkeys this past year. Even though I have done this for awhile I still find it difficult to take the lives of animals, especially those that I have cared for since they were small chicks. In order to prepare this year my confederates and I assigned each turkey a name of a person. Justin you will be happy to know that we stuck to gender assignment .. hens got the names of females and toms got males with only one notable exception, but I digress. Some of those people are known in politics, or on TV,or by their music. They may be of local, national, or international fame or just a celebrity in general. It is just a device to occupy our thoughts while we are doing the deed. I should say that we did not just pluck their names out of the air either. Maybe I should not have brought it up at all. Please do not think that there is any malice at all on my part for anyone on that bloodstained list. Happy Thanksgiving.

Posted by: Phil at November 21, 2009 8:12 PM

And to whom do you distribute them?

Posted by: Justin Katz at November 21, 2009 8:19 PM

The turkeys?

Or the list. You know the saying that curiosity may kill the Katz.

Posted by: Phil at November 21, 2009 8:57 PM

The turkeys. I don't particularly care if you named a doomed turkey after me or not, and I was preparing to compliment you on a charitable endeavor, assuming that's what it was, but I have to say I'm a little uneasy with the vaguely threatening rejoinders...

Posted by: Justin Katz at November 21, 2009 9:28 PM

People are a little quick on the trigger(bad analogy)these days when "hit list" comes up.They assume the worst.
Note the kids arrested for bringing a plastic knife to school for their peanut butter&cheese sandwich.
My one real bad experience with this kind of thing happened about 22 years ago.A detention supervisor in Boston called me and asked me a few detailed questions about what my wife looked like and what my house looked like.He started off with accurate descriptoons and asked me if they were correct.
Turned out a guy I had arrested had supplied the details.I barely knew this officer and he certainly knew nothing about me personally.He went on to tell me that the arrestee assured him if he were deported my wife would be murdered.This guy was part of a family of criminals and had connections with another large family of criminals.My neighbors advised me they had noticed a car with nasty looking individuals parked on the block a few times.
The FBI became involved and I had to send my family out of state for awhile.
The upshot of it was thaat the guy who made the threat and three of his brothers were deported based on criminal convictions.None of them has ever been seen in RI since.They were arrested by us(INS) and the Providence PD.I didn't keep my distance like I probably should've;I made it as personal as they did.
The FBI dealt with the guy who made the original threat.Turns out these same brothers had hired an out of town hoodlum to kill a Providence cop,but he lost his nerve and snitched them out.Thanks to the conspiracy laws,they couldn't make a case because there was no corroboration.
So please excuse me if I take mentions of hit lists seriously.I'm not a nervous Nellie,but having experienced my wife being a target kind of pissed me off permanently.
Tabetha,if you read this,remember you weren't supposed to tell the grandparents why you were visiting for so long?
