The Secret Service, ladies of negotiable affection, and Robama vs. Obomney
The Secret Service and ladies of negotiable affection story continues to expand; it's now reached the "shouted inquiries" stage, to which "our President" is becomingly silent.
Couple of thoughts: (a) Just like DSK, “why now?”* since as it did turn out with DSK, the behavior was a pervasive pattern, and that looks likely to be true with the Secret Service as well (“wheels up” parties and all); and more importantly (b) if the Republicans don’t figure out some Rovian way to make use of this, the election’s just not serious.**
NOTE * Though it could be random; sometimes a story is just too juicy not to run; even the media have to eat, after all.
NOTE ** Making the arbitrary assumption that the election is serious. After all, McCain could have swift-boated Obama easily with Rezko or Obama’s actually rather dodgy record as a community organizer. So what held the Republicans back? Scruples? Or lack of seriousness?
