Tonight's "Countdown with Keith Olberman" contained an item with local flavor.
One of Olberman's nightly features is his "Top 3 Newsmakers" segment. Last night it featured one of our area's brighter inhabitants, Robert Alan Fry.
It seems Mr. Fry was arrested in Rock Island for suspicion of burglary after using a plastic card to jimmy the lock and break into an apartment.
That may have not been worth noting, except that Fry happened to leave the card behind after he burgled the apartment. Annnnnnnd the card he left at the scene happened to be the one with his name and picture on it that the Illinois Department of Corrections had issued to him when he was in jail two months ago.
Forget burglary, is there such a charge as aggravated stupidity? The cops gotta love it when the bad guys do their job for them.
And it's morning in America.
How do I know? Because you see stuff like this on TV these days.
No name, just "Turdblossom". It made me laugh and gave me that warm glow you only get when you see someone like Rove getting raked over the coals at long last.
I found it hilarious because I'm not sure everyone is in on the caption under Rove's smiling face. For those who are unfamiliar, "Turdblossom" is Bush's term of endearment for old Karl. I gotta give him credit at least for such a fitting nickname.
