Best Christmas song ever!
I first heard them when I was on tour in Italy. Their version of South Australia is plain kick ass.
Since we have no Open, thought I’d share this hypocrite GOP congressman form Idaho who doesn’t drink because he’s a Mormon. My how they lie:
“Sen. Michael Crapo, R.-Idaho, was arrested in Virginia early Sunday morning and charged with driving under the influence, Alexandria, Va., police say.”
“Police spokesman Craig T. Fifer said an officer was on routine patrol when he saw Crapo’s vehicle run a red light. It was stopped at Hume Avenue and Mount Vernon at 12:45 a.m. and he was alone at the time.”
“Sen. Michael Crapo, R-Idaho, following his arrest for DUI, December 23, 2012 / ALEXANDRIA POLICE DEPARTMENT”
Crapo then underwent several field sobriety tests, which he failed, Fifer said in a statement. He was then taken into custody without incident. According to the Alexandria police, his blood alcohol level was 0.11; 0.08 is the legal limit in Virginia.”
“Police took Crapo to the Alexandria jail and he was released on $1,000 bond at about 5 a.m., Crapo’s office said. He has a January 4 court date.”
“I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance,” Crapo said Sunday night. “I made a mistake for which I apologize to my family, my Idaho constituents and any others who have put their trust in me. I accept total responsibility and will deal with whatever penalty comes my way in this matter. I will also undertake measures to ensure that this circumstance is never repeated.”
Crapo, a Mormon who has been a bishop in the church for decades, has said before in interviews that he doesn’t drink alcohol, consistent with his church’s doctrine>”
A Bishop no less. Merry Christmas Concressman Crapo.
Forgot the source for the story above;
I absolutely love this story. Because it just shows that politicians are all full of crap. I mean, it’s even in his name. It should have tipped everyone off.
But seriously, how can anyone market their political party on a morals base and get away with it anymore?
Wow, Mr. Doto, you’re on a roll today aren’t you? You’re not defending Sen. Crapo’s behavior are you?
Cold N Pee, Dan?
Nice nerd photo!. Women are tearing their clothes off for that??
“Women are tearing their clothes off for that??”
Fantasizing a little, suzie? I see no mention of anybody tearing their clothes off.
