Republican John Sullivan (R OK-1) and Democrat Patrick Kennedy (D RI-1) returned to Washington this week after serving their full term in another kind of “office”… rehab that is. Sullivan is the alcoholic and Kennedy is the addict- but we all know sometimes it’s just a case of first available. I say that not to be crude but instead to illustrate the fact that no matter what our station is in life…when drinking, I’m just an alky and so are they. The polarizing politics of today have got me sneering at both political parties, but I will give them both a TDA Salute for owning up to their problem and speaking out on the subject.
I wish upon them a bipartisan recovery, may it foster better judgment n Washington on both sides of the aisle.
