The Pley Boy Lifestyle

My weekend column muses on David Chaney, Greg Stokes, and the 19 other members of the president’s “security” detail who enjoyed the services of the “escorts” at the PleyClub. Notwithstanding Messrs Chaney and Stokes’ abrupt departure from the Secret Service, taxpayers will be paying them a pension of up to $61,000 a year.

Britain’s Daily Mail, demonstrating a greater interest in the story than the court eunuchs of the Obamamedia, provides some pictures of the hotel accommodations these guys were enjoying while they “scouted security for the President’s visit.”

We have a dependency culture from top to toe. Forty-five million Americans are on food stamps. The “public servants” manning the government that hands out the food stamps are themselves on Vegas hot-tub stamps, beach-resort stamps, Colombian hooker stamps, third-of-a-century retirement stamps . . .

A few more years of this, and it won’t be necessary to go to Cartagena: It’ll be Latin America at home, too.
