Florida rep. Bob Allen's odd situation

You can’t make this stuff up. If you did no one would buy it. So, Bob Allen republican representative who has introduced legislation to increase the penalties for public sex was arrested for soliciting an undercover cop in a men’s bathroom. Now, that would be bad enough BUT the family values republican had to put some icing on that cake. By the time that he got to the police station he had his story down.

“This was a pretty stocky black guy, and there was nothing but other black guys around in the park,” Allen, who is white, told police in a taped statement after his arrest. Allen said he feared he “was about to be a statistic” and would have said anything just to get away. (via the Orlando Sentinel)

Let’s see how could this situation be worst. First, you are a lawmaker for the party of Family Values. Secondly, you have these sexual needs that really go against your party’s values. Thirdly, you’re a racist. What else could help flush your career down the drain? Oh, you are state chairman for John McCain for president. That’s perfect.

The Daily Show has a GREAT take on this whole story.

Senator Dodd is in the Situation Room

I have tried to keep up with the candidates and post their announcements.  Well, there are too many candidates for me to keep up.  Senator Dodd announced on Imus’ show yesterday morning.  Edwards announces in New Orleans and Dodd is on Imus?  There is nothing wrong with Imus.  He has a huge following.  It just seems like Dodd could do better, classier.  Senator Dodd is a fine man.  I wish him well.

JC Watts in the Situation Room


Not much more needs to be said.

Addendum (8/22/06): I couldn’t help myself.  I had to say something.  JC Watts is either uninformed or is deliberately deceiving.  The war on terror as it was defined in 2001 referred to groups or nations that sponsor terrorism that had a global reach.  It was clear on 9/12/2001 that Iraq was not a state sponsor of terrorism.  Iraq had been a state sponsor of terrorism.  Iraq tried to kill former President Bush (41) back in 1992 or 93 when he went to Kuwait.  The United States lobbed a series of cruise missiles at Iraq’s Ministry of Defense and since that time there is no evidence that Iraq sponsored any groups that part took in terrorism.  Iran, on the other hand, sponsored plenty of state terrorism after 1992.  But, we’re not talking about Iran.  There were no significant connections between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda.

Former Representative Watts starts his statement by saying that he continues to believe.  Does this mean that he believes this in spite of the data?  Because the data is overwhelming and 100% convincing for those people who don’t have an ideology centered around Iraq as the root of all evil.  I would encourage JC Watts to speak from knowledge.  Neither the CIA nor the FBI nor the military (after the fall of Saddam) have found any credible evidence to suggest that Iraq sponsored terrorism after we retaliated.  None.

Then Representative Watts poses the rhetorical question – what would the Middle East look like if we were not in Iraq?  Would Israel be in more trouble?  More?  How can Israel be in more trouble?  How has our presence helped Israel?  If anything, our presence in the Middle East has inflamed sectarian violence.  It is inflamed moderates throughout the region because we invaded a nation on faulty data.  So, again, this is an unsubstantiated position.

I must also add, that since we invaded Iraq, Iraq has become a hotbed of violence.  Jihadists have migrated to Iraq, because of our presence and because we have not provided security in that country.

I sure hope that CNN is not paying JC Watts for this type of “insight.”  Because he’s just pulling things out of the air.
