Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-OxyContin, deems an insufficient number of reporters are in the House press gallery and reacts as if he’s just seen the Hindenburg explode:
Kennedy isn’t running for reelection; three Democrats (state representative Jon Brien, Providence mayor David Cicilline, and William Lynch) seek his seat. Of course, all of them thought that having this bellowing, tantrum-throwing toddler represent the people of Rhode Island’s 1st district was a fine idea until Kennedy announced his retirement.
Long before then, Republican John Loughlin thought that district deserved better. And I understand he even knows when to use his indoor voice.
