    One of the twins had her purse stolen from a nightclub in Argentina. Three motorcycle cops escorting his motorcade through Honolulu crash, two are in serious condition. And the acting director of the WH travel office was beaten and mugged outside a Waikiki nightclub.

    Which country should we invade first -- Hawaii or Argentina?
  3. There are several thousand American soldiers who had worse days, I'm betting.

    Please, for sheer entertainment sake, let there be lesbian porn on Jenna or Barb's Sidekick.

    And, to top it all off, he didn't even get to meet Dog the Bounty Hunter, which was the reason lil' Georgie came in the first place. :)

    Yeah, robberies, beatings, and motorcycle crashes where people get hurt are always hilarious.

    I wouldn't disagree with that either.

    I just thought it was interesting that all these things indirectly involving the POTUS happened in such a short span.
  11. I'm probably just incredibly cynical, but I hate TV cop shows. If portrays them as good guys, which is so far from the truth. Cops, in general, are not in it for the good of society. It just makes me sick every single time I read a new case of police brutality. Cops are in their job for the power-trip and to chance to be a bully. The "code" is the lamest thing there is. Imagine a journalist not speaking up about another journalist's case after case of plagerism? God, it feels GREAT every time I read about a cop who was seriously injured or killed. It's like a tiny piece of vengeance for all the injustices they've done society.

    PS That may be the best 24 hours in Bush's term, which shows how badly it's been.

    Holy crap, that might be the most fucked-up statement I've read on here.

    I'm one of the more liberal people on here. And yes, there are some bad cops. Anyone who's had more than casual dealings with the police know this. However, they are in the minority.

    However, the vast majority of police officers are truly trying to do their best for their community, often with little support (witness your statement). Most are family men and women.

    If you feel GREAT any time a police officer is wounded or killed, you need some major fucking help, Sir.
