Joe Scarborough is attempting the impossible dream–he is admonishing is fellow Republicans to man up and confront Sarah Palin. Today, on Morning Joe, he desperately tried to get Congressman John Shadegg of Arizona to admit that Sarah Palin was simply not qualified to be president. The good congressman talked around the question and Joe kept asking. Shadegg never would say it publicly. Mika and Joe both insist that every Republican they talk to off set says Ms. Palin simply isn’t qualified. However none will publicly state their opinion:
Here is what Joe Scarborough said in his opinion piece in Politico today:
Republicans have a problem. The most-talked-about figure in the GOP is a reality show star who cannot be elected. And yet the same leaders who fret that Sarah Palin could devastate their party in 2012 are too scared to say in public what they all complain about in private.
Scarborough outlines the problem until he begins to discuss President George Herbert Walker Bush. Then Scarborough takes on a more personal tone:
Manassas police have arrested city resident Shane Taylor for operating a brothel at his residence.
Detectives executed a search warrant Monday at 2 a.m. at 8555 Yoder St., off Wellington Road.
The search warrant was obtained after police received “credible information” that Taylor has been operating and maintaining a bawdy place for the past five months, said city police Sgt. Tim Neumann.
Police found “significant evidence found which is directly related to maintaining a bawdy place,” Neumann said in a press release.
Taylor, 42, was charged with receiving money from earnings of a male or female prostitute.
Further investigation is ongoing.
If a man runs a bawdy house, is he a Male Madam or a Pimp? How can something like this be going on and the neighbors not notice anything? That appears to be a fairly upscale neighborhood. Shady goings on are usually very noticeable in neighborhoods like this one. (I used birds eye on bing.com to snoop.) Too bad this dude isn’t eligible for deportation.
