Let Them Have Their Moment

I’m sure the righties are chortling over Rep. Patrick Kennedy’s incident the other night. While the facts of the matter may be unlcear and the truth will eventually come out, the righties can have their fun. After all, they’ve had so little joy in the last year that you almost — emphasis on almost — feel sorry for them.

Chances are that this won’t turn out to be the scandal that they dream about. Besides, if it was a Republican, it wouldn’t even get noticed. Hell, if shooting someone in the face can be dismissed by the Republicans as just an “unfortunate incident,” how can a fender-bender be worthy of a special prosecutor? Trust me, somehow, they’ll manage to make it that big.
