WASHINGTON - Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was arrested early this morning for breaking into her Georgetown townhouse.
This is just the latest in a string of incidents where Obama administration appointees or officials have been caught breaking into their own property for a variety of reasons. "You never, ever saw this type of crap in the [George W.] Bush administration," said IRREVERENT commentator Dan McHicktock. "The basic irresponsibility of losing your keys or locking yourself out of your own residence says a lot for how they'll rule."
Justice Sotomayor is being held in the Metropolitan Police Department downtown lockup until formal charges are brought against her Monday. Felony charges of Breaking and Entering are likely to be reduced to lesser misdeamenors, according to Sotomayor's lawyer Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "What charges? Who'd press them? She didn't do anything wrong," explained Ginsburg.
Sotomayor's arrest marks the 11th time persons associated with the Obama administration have broken into their own residences or vehicles, an alarming trend to some. "Look, you can say one or two is bad luck," said Dan McHicktock, because we were too lazy to find someone different to comment. "But eleven? That's pathological. Well, not pathological, but a disturbing trend that the Obama guys are picking the same kind of forgetful people over and over and they lose their keys a lot. Who knows what they'll lose next? Hey, sorry, America, we lost the Constitution, anyone seen it?"
Vice President Joe Biden, himself forced to break into his limousine last week, spoke out against Sotomayor's arrest today at a luncheon supporting Altzeimer's research. "I think it's absolutely ridiculous that people are being arrested and detained for this kind of crap," said Biden. "Of all our national priorities, busting people for being forgetful isn't one of them."
