Property Grunt

This is getting out of hand.

By now everyone has heard of the attention whores Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

Yeah, Yeah, 15 minutes, looking for fame blah, blah blah. I find this type of behavior abhorrent because this couple shows absolutely no respect for the White House, the Presidency and America.

I learned a long time ago that you never show up somewhere where you not invited. You put the hosts in a very uncomfortable situation. It also reflects poorly on the uninvited which is the understatement of the year in regards to this couple.

5 years ago, Jon Stewart did an interview with 60 Mintutes. I believe in this interview he was asked a question about interviewing the GW Bush who was President at the time and basically if he would rip him a new one. His response that he would not interview GW Bush in that fashion, not because he was admirer of Bush but because he of his respect of the presidential office.

This is a man who makes his living skewering politicians and there has been no bigger target to skewer than our last president. But even he knows that a certain level of manners must be applied.

The only way I see an end to this is if someone does something very illegal and I mean beyond balloon boy, something so f**ked in the head outrageous that it requires serious prison time.

If this incident isn't it, I do not know what is.
