The Secret Service Snafu has me wondering here… The Agents apparently broke no laws. So why are they being punished? Most of the people who are “Outraged” about it are the same people who dismissed Bill Clinton’s actions in an Intern as “Just sex, and none of our business.” If that’s the standard, then what about if there wasn’t even any of that? Just “Escorts” and some drinking and carrying on like what goes on in behind the curtain in a lot of professional cultures where the public front is a perfectly worn suite and a poker face. Just ask Japan.
The men were off duty. No laws were broken. I don’t see a problem with that. The only problem that I have was the apparent loose handling of Confidential Information. That’s not cool. But whooping it up while off duty? I don’t care.
I also don’t care that another SS Agent post pics of Sarah Palin saying “I’d hit that” or whatever he was going on about. I wouldn’t fire him. I’m send him to work counterfitting cases or something, because that was in poor taste to do what he did… but again… he violated no laws or sacred trust. And most guys offended by what he did all agree and were thinking the same thing.
