Cojones Of The Year

WASHINGTON (AP) — The attention-hungry couple that crashed the Obama administration’s first state dinner admitted to a friendly Pentagon official that they went without a confirmed invitation — just in case they got approved at the last minute.
Tareq and Michaele Salahi claimed a dead cell phone battery prevented them from hearing a voicemail earlier that day advising them they did not make the guest list.


What a brilliant strategy!  Show up “just in case” and use the “dead cell phone battery” defense.

Imagine where you could go and who you might meet.  Who knows, you might get on TV or even in (gasp) Java!

    Gerry, Explain it to me. Why does the media keep giving air time to these people, when the real story is how they were able to get that close to the Prez?

    i agree with rick d.there is definitely a spin on this incident. the couple took a shot at it (no pun intended) and got in fine. the problem is not with the couple but with the Secret Service. i would assume (not knowing how they operate) that this should be one of the easier assignments they would have. i think thats the way they looked at it also. hence the blunder

    I think this couple should be arrested for trespassing!
