The latest to break from the Secret Service prostitution scandal: One of the supervising agents involved posted pictures of himself guarding Sarah Palin, with the comment “I was really checking her out, if you know what I mean.”
Palin responded to the revelation, “Well check this out, buddy — you’re fired!”
The ongoing news from the Cartagena prostitution scandal sounds more and more like a really bad frat party movie.
Several agents have been fired, more remain on suspension without their security clearances, and about 10 military personnel are under investigation.
Aside from the price haggling that started the whole police involvement in the situation, there are serious allegations that information about President Obama’s schedule and route was in the room with the hookers and could have been accessible, a point that I’m sure has been duly noted and cataloged by numerous foreign agencies.
There are also allegations that some of the Colombian girls were just that — underage girls.
Between the Secret Service and the GSA Las Vegas trip, the public has been treated to a clearer picture of how the government spends their tax dollars.
Palin called the Secret Service scandal a sign of government “gone amok.” That’s being generous.
Now I’ll be first to agree that Sarah Palin does have a honky-tonk badonkadonk, but the Secret Service is paid to watch the entire elected official, not just leer at select body parts.
“It’s like, who’s minding the store around here?” Palin told Fox News. “The president, for one, he better be wary, there, of when Secret Service is accompanying his family on vacation. They may be checking out the first lady instead of guarding her.”
He might want to be more worried about his daughters.
