Just when you thought politicians couldn’t sink any lower (and I mean that in a figurative sense – at ease, Teddy), along comes Patrick Kennedy, fresh from rehab and tan, rested, and ready to pander to any and all minorites!

From the NY Daily News:

Rep. Patrick Kennedy said yesterday he wants to be treated like an African-American from Washington if and when he gets charged for crashing his car on Capitol Hill.

Patrick then apparently remembered that he, of course, did not receive any preferential treatment (something he may have forgotten while he was busy trying to remember the things that didn’t happen), and followed up with an explanation that yes, he apparently already is black:

“It’s what anyone else would have done to them if they were an African-American in Anacostia,” Kennedy said in a shaky voice, referring to the mostly minority neighborhood in southeastern Washington.

So Patrick and his “Black Panderer Party” (led by Bill Clinton, the first black president) continue to act incredibly shameful and stupid, but maybe they could at least make a sequel to “Shaft“. Well, “Bent Shaft” in some cases.

Who is the man that would risk somebody else’s neck
For his brother man?
Can you dig it?

Who’s the cat that’ll cop out
When there’s po-lice all about?
Right On!
