Where Am I?

"Some time around 2:45 a.m., I drove the few blocks to the Capitol Complex believing I needed to vote," his second statement said. "Apparently, I was disoriented from the medication."
--Rep. Patrick Kennedy after crashing into a barrier (in order to avoid hitting a police cruiser) near the Capitol

At least he didn't kill an intern.

I used to think my Uncle Billy Bob's excuses were so lame because he was an alcoholic and drug addict and not very smart or educated. Apparently, he was just being a politician when he claimed that he hit a fence to avoid running over a chicken, and then went home and drank a case of beer in an hour (explaining why he was drunk when the police arrived at his house). You see, it wasn't really a hit-and-run either because he left a note--the chicken must have eaten it.

Which story is more believable? I'm not sure.

I love the chicken story. Good stuff.

Once when I was drunk and driving, back when I was insane, both my friend and I got out of my car to wander off. We left it running and parked in a lane of traffic.

Neither of us would admit who had been driving.

And I vaguely remember swearing there was a third person.

Oh, the things we do when we are all messed up...
At least you know that it happens to everyone, including those people at "the top".
