Equal Protection from Water Balloons?

A man has been charged with aggravated battery after throwing a water balloon at a fire truck in a parade and getting Representative Dennis Hastert wet.

The man claims that he didn’t know that Hastert was driving the fire truck.

“He is third in line to the presidency of the United States. You won’t forget it next time, will you?” asked Judge Tomas Magdich.

I wonder whether I would get the same protection of the law were I to be dampened by a water balloon, or whether we’ve now abandoned even the pretense of that. One set of rules for us, one for the central committee. How long before we have reserved lanes in the middle of the roads for these people?

One sentence:

“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky.”

Funny how if I was to lie to a grand jury under oath, it’s perjury, but if a President does it, it’s good politics.

I’m quite sure I would not know Dennis Hastert if I saw him. Maybe “endangering” him was a “threat to national security.”

I don’t think more than a small percentage of Americans could pick Hastert out of a line-up.

That fat fuck needs to grow a sense of humor.

I, for one, welcome our fat, Central-Time-Zone-based overlords.

Actually I don’t think Dennis Hastert would be that tough to pick out of a line up. He’d be the one puffing out his chest trying to look self important and with a disgusted look on his face like you should know who he is since he is SOOOO VERY IMPORTANT.
