Actions speak louder than words: Hard-partying JFK relative Rep. Patrick Kennedy was caught slamming so many vodka shots that the bartender cut him off -- just hours after giving a speech where he discussed his longtime substance abuse woes, Roll Call's Heard on the Hill blog reported today.

The Rhode Island Democrat reportedly entered the Capitol Lounge in Washington DC at 11 Tuesday night -- a few hours after giving a speech at a local charity that helps homeless women -- and knocked back six shots of straight vodka before the bartender refused round seven.

When he was reminded of his uncle, John F. Kennedy, the site reported a merry Kennedy slapped the back of the observer and replied, “Oh yeah! Good one!”

Kennedy has struggled with bi-polar disorder, alcoholism and drug addiction since his teens, and last year went went to rehab.

In 2006, he suffered a public humiliation after he crashed his Mustang near the US Capitol.

Kennedy said in February that he wants to help people with substance abuse and mental health problems once he leaves office.
