Being from the Detroit area of late, I'm familiar with Mrs. Conyers. Even if she wasn't in jail, her personality alone would undoutedly suffice to provide perpetual Congressman John with more than enough sympathy to generate a pass if he was caught reading Playboy, say, someplace like in his office.
But that's not where he was.
I know it's hard to make out but if Breitbart.tv is to be believed he's looking at pictures of naked women while seated in the middle of an airplane. (Maybe thinking about the TSA's Freedom Feel-ups got him excited?)
This infuriates me. Not because I am a prude, but because it just perfectly epitomizes the Washington elite's opinion of, and relationship with, we the little people. There's no worry about offending anybody around them, no issue with engaging in very private behavior in public, because we simply don't exist to them.
I hope our newly-minted GOP majority looks very closely at his district when they redraw the lines to eliminate the seat (maybe two) Michigan is expected to lose, but I doubt they will. The GOP doesn't usually have the spine to play the game as dirty as the socialists do.
