Patrick Kennedy thinks he understands what happened in last night’s stunning election, according to The Politico:

Kennedy’s son, Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) said Democrats have to understand that they’ve entered a different era — and that they can’t just assume that voters will be with them.

“It’s like in Roman times, they’d be trotted out to the coliseum and the lions would be brought out,” Kennedy said Tuesday night. “I mean, they’re wanting blood and they’re not getting it so they want to protest.”

Being fed to lions? Really?

I don’t even know what he’s talking about. Well maybe Patrick Kennedy’s thinking of when the Romans used to feed Catholics to the lions. Well, if there’s a reprise of that, I’m pretty sure Kennedy would be safe for lack of evidence.
