HAHAHAhahaha.. “Skinny dipping in the Sea of Galil-e-e” was the Monday morning lead in to Good Morning America. Does it get any funnier than this for a news segment? Hardly. Oops, probably not an apt term for this type of story. I walked into my kitchen and my husband who always makes the coffee and the breakfast was reading the newspaper and at the very moment George Stephanopoulos was making the announcement some members of the House that were on a fact-finding trip had decided to take a dip sans clothes in the sea of Galilee LAST summer. My husband looked up and laughed, now that is the way to start the work week! Laughing.
Excuse me if my word choice is suggestive because , you can’t write a story on this topic without a few small nuts of disbelief slipping in to the context. Republican Representative Kevin Yoder from Kansas , issued a statement saying he was with his wife and took a dive without a swimsuit. Aaah Hummm, Rep. Yoder speak the whole truth , you were WITHOUT CLOTHES, while representing THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA in ISRAEL. The first step to forgiveness is acceptance.
Will someone tell me why we didn’t hear about this last year? I hate to go all conspiracy theory here so I will just use some good old Southern Common Sense and conclude, there was an attempt to keep it secret. I am not saying there was a coverup because clearly, there was no such thing , not even the terry cloth kind available but someone with LOTS of beach balls hid the view. We only thought we were the Olympic Gold Medalist for of all things Beach Volley Ball, little did we know that the 20 people including top Republicans aides were representing the Americans in another venue and event at an earlier time. They were in the Free-Floating-Walking-Event across the Sea of Galilee. I think they lost the event but won the attention of the American people in the way no negative political ad could. Can we all AGREE on this and say , YUCK? I think we know how Rep. Eric Cantor keeps his selected members in check, he threatens to expose their exposure!
Just so no one gets left out of the recognition award ceremony they deserve, here are the names of the Representatives mentioned by Politico that had the “exclusive”naked truth story….Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.) and his daughter; Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) and his wife; Reps. Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.), Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) and Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.). Politico has the whole story and ABC quoted them this morning as well. Evidently all the others were clothed, thank you Jesus for that bit of info. Only, Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder was naked. Get some clothes on, boy!
Thank you God, for not letting the fellows jump in the ponds of Alabama to try out their prowess for walking across water, cause some cooter or slider might’ve decided to inflict some pain. We know the only person who ever walked on water in Alabama is Coach Bear Bryant and he’d have a comment on the stupidity of such an attempt by those less talented, something like,” This is how it is done, Boys.”
