A group of protesters sans clothing stormed into Speaker Boehner's office, protesting federal budget cuts and lack of AIDS funding.  They were quickly arrested and escorted away.

I'm sure the Speaker felt some solidarity with them, because during my detailed examination of the video, there were no discernible tan lines.  Apparently Mr. Boehner was caught off guard as he was not up to commenting on the situation.  Most media outlets have ignored the story, perhaps thinking that by doing so it would simply wilt and go away. They're entitled to soft news, but here on TNF, we expect hard news, news that plumbs great depths, and news that investigates every nook and cranny of a story. 

I'm hoping this is merely an isolated incident involving only eight or ten lone gunmen types, and that we don't see similar naked protests in the future.  We're Americans, after all, and we settle our differences with real guns, not some d*ck measuring contest.  And wouldn't it be just like us liberals to bring a schlong to a gunfight?

Actually, I have a low dosage Lortab that knocks back the pain and makes me a little drowsy.  If you want me to write really bizarre stuff, give me some double espressos.  Frank Zappa said he didn't use drugs because they'd make him weird.  I think that's eminently sensible.

Poor Frank. He would have been better off with the drugs and not the cigarettes.

Zappa died from undiagnosed prostate cancer.  We can only speculate about the course of his career if it had been detected earlier.

He was quite ahead of his time for sure.

Shouldn't this have been "Naked protesters give the DC police a raging Boehner".
