Today's post is about the Secret Service investigating terrorist threats against a public official, only to find a blonde who was just kidding.
And no, sadly I'm not talking about Ann Coulter.
Apparently a 14-year-old girl decorated her anti-Bush MySpace group page with a picture of the Chimpster getting stabbed in the hand with the caption, "Kill Bush". This was considered to be such a dire and imminent threat that agents were sent to pull her out of school and interrogate her for two hours.
Fortunately, she's a cute little blue-eyed blonde. Were she a dark-skinned brunette, she'd be riding the waterboard in whatever hellhole we've replaced Gitmo with.
This story brings up many questions - not the least of which is precisely what reaction did she expect?
But, also, let us return to Ann Coulter and discuss how someone can walk around still free after threatening the lives of public officials, Supreme Court justices, and pretty much anyone who has ever disagreed with her, ever - and yet law enforcement from the SS on down pay her no mind.
The "I was only joking" defense. Learn it and use it, kid. Apparently it's ironclad.
If you're a Republican.
Oh, on a tangent - in case the reason I homeschool isn't clear - let me award the "Thank God This Man Works with Children" award to McClatchy Assistant Principal Paul Belluomini:
Can't have those parents interfering with any investigations. All that whining about rights and consent and what we may reasonably expect from minors just throws the interrogators off, and we can't have that. Asshole.
McClatchy Assistant Principal Paul Belluomini said he usually does not notify parents when law enforcement officials come to school to interview students.
"Parents usually interfere with an investigation, so we usually don't notify them until it's done," he said.
