Merlin on Rep. Patrick Kennedy’s retirement from the House……

Hello Dog and good morning!

Your Party is heading for the Exits.

As much as I said yesterday that I didn’t see the Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL 21) coming,…… I didn’t saw this Retirement coming either.

Politico as well as other outlets in Washington and in Rhode Island reporting that longterm Congressman and Son of the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) Patrick J. Kennedy (D-RI 1) won’t seek Reelection this year.

For the first time since 1962 there will be no Kennedy in the U. S. Congress after this years Midterm Elections.

Here are some Quotes from Patrick Kennedy after Democrats lost Ted Kennedy’s Seat in Massachusetts earlier this year:

Kennedy called your Party and I quote: “the most undisciplined party there is out there.” AND Voters were looking for “blood”.


when folks like Kennedy announcing Retirement your Party is in deep, deep trouble.

Here’s a link to the announcement via CNN…..


Well Merlin nothing goes on forever…..and thet includes the Kennedy’s…..it’s time to give the brand a rest……so be it……

  1. Merlin, it’s safe to say Patrick Kennedy’s political career is over and his retirement was decided after Scott Brown won his late father’s Senate seat last month, which pretty much translated into: “Screw this, the party is going down the toilet for a generation and I’m leaving.”
