By now everyone in the country with access to a newspaper, radio, TV or computer has heard about the lewd picture tweet from Congressman Anthony Weiner's account to a young lady in Washington State. Weiner says the account was hacked and someone pranked him.. I can see that happening, it's a criminal offense, you're a congressman, call the FBI and get on with life.
For some reason Weiner doesn't want to do that, he wants to handle it himself.. Yeah, not sure why he wants to spend his money on an investigation when he can spend ours. He normally loves to spend taxpayer money, but it's certainly his right.
His answer to a very direct question seemed a little strange... When asked directly if the photo was a photo of him he responded He couldn't say "with certitude" and that the picture might have been photo shopped.
Anthony, there's not enough in that picture to connect it to you or anyone else. Besides most of us could say, "With Certitude" if anyone had ever taken a picture like that of us... If we had, presumably we'd have had a reason to remember who took it.
And the Mouth
From the Wiener lets go to the mouth, Congresswoman Wassermann Shultz, the new mouthpiece of the Democratic Party.... and a perfect example of the parties mentality.. Here she explains that gas prices are going up because we have plenty of inventory, we've issued new drilling permits and people are driving less... and the reason they're not going down is because we don't tax the oil companies more...
Weiner and Wasserman are consider two of the the Democratic Parties best and brightest rising stars.....
Now for some real news:
US Army Staff Sargent stops bank robbery
Since the days of Dillenger, and Bonnie and Clyde the odds of sucessfully picking up a lot of quick easy cash robbing a bank have taken a major drop. Now the banks give thieves exploding money that will leave them covered in dye. Cameras are everywhere. With the advent of radio, pursing cops don't just go home when they get to the state or county line, they radio ahead. The dollar amounts aren't that high any more either... You'd be lucky to get a thousand bucks in exchange for twenty years in a federal prison.. As a result the quality of professional bank robbers has gone way downhill.. This idiot proves it..
Mathew Rogers tried to rob a bank while Eddie Peoples was inside.. That might have been his first mistake.. Peoples is a US Army Staff Sargent who was on leave.. Roger's next mistake was a biggie, Rogers threatened Sgt Peoples young sons with thehis gun... which turned out to be a toy.
Mathew Rogers was probably happy to see the police.
