There's something very troubling about the couple who snuck into that White House dinner and it's not just their Easy-Bake Oven hair or their beady, heat-seeking eyeballs.
No, it's something else and that something else makes me want to freeze-dry Tareq and Michaele Salahi, board them up in a box and drop them into the Arctic Sea, "Blob" style.
Part of it, I guess, is because I'm a jerk. But also because they're social climbers — the oily kind whose quest for notoriety trumps productive living. To them, getting close enough to lick a Joe Biden hair plug is worth whatever sacrifice, especially if the sacrifice isn't theirs.
And, as it turns out, it won't be. That's because, due to the security breach, three agents have been placed on administrative leave.
So I guess there is a price for fame, after all — just not for the couple.
But there's the bigger story here: The world is a crazy place filled with crazy people. Worse, if a nut-bag pulls a Hinkley, we now have factions who see nothing but conspiracy. And that means when our president is in jeopardy, so are we — more so than any time in history. And I include that chaotic period when unicorns once fought griffins over control of our nation's vast pixie deposits.
As you know, the unicorns won.
So don't punish the cops; punish the couple — harshly. I suggest Gitmo — now there's a party.
And if you disagree with me, then you're probably racist.
