Is he a hero or a zero?

Hero/Zero: I may need some help with this one. In Beaumont, Texas (I’m guessing it’s in Texas – it sounds like something that would happen in Texas), police officer Keith Breiner is fighting a department suspension for having sex with a hooker during a felony prostitution investigation.

Hey, the guy was only doing his job.

At least that what he says, though the department said otherwise. The other cop who was busted for the same thing (I’m now planning my next Beaumont vacation) didn’t bother fighting the suspension. But Breiner says the police chief told him he had to do it in order to … nail the suspect.

Thanks, I’ll be here all week.

My favorite part of the story is where the assistant city attorney asked Breiner, who’s married, if he enjoyed having sex with the women (he did it with women at two spas – this guy is dedicated). At first he shrugged his shoulders and shook his head. Then he said “It was a job, sir. I didn’t have pleasure doing this. I was paid to do it.”

Yeah, of course. You were getting paid for having sex. Either that makes you an American hero, or, quite possibly, a whore.

ZERO: Barack Obama. Good God, man, quit screwing with us and pick your vice president already. It’s 6 p.m. on Friday and all week I haven’t been able to turn on the TV or look at a web site without being flattened by the speculation. It’s only the vice president; it’s not like you’re picking someone important.

All right – I’ll take the job. But only because you asked nicely.
