The Flogging

The high priest and priestess of “look at me.” Plead the 5th, what have you. As celebrity culture “road kill,” however, you are sentenced to twist slowly in the public eye with all profits going to the MSM.

    Lock them in a room without mirrors.

    Why did they even show up? Karl Rove didn’t. Harriett Meyers didn’t.

    Are these people the White House “party crashers”? Why is this important? I don’t even know who they are.

    I like the Salahi’s.

    They have been put through so much.

    The media is obsessed with them. Did the other guy Carlos Allen or the older couple that showed up and went to the brunch with the President go to congress? No. That is discrimination.

    Hang in there Salahi’s.
