commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The Salahi’s publize that they have been “Low Key”………

Would they do it all over again, given that the crashing stunt made them famous? They say no way.

I guess the US Attorney has informed them that they are not going be charged in the White House Gate crashing incident…..

Because they are laughing their entre back into the world…..

Mrs Salahi will be featured on the House Wives of  Washington DC……

I wonder what happened to the Secret Service people working the Indian State Dinner?

If you find out…… drop the Dog a line……

Oh, yea…Desiree Rogers bailed out and went back to Chicago……..


On Thursday night, Tareq and Michaele Salahi made a rare public appearance at District bar in Adams Morgan for a “Hollywood vs. Bollywood” party hosted by nightlife blogger Kelly Ann Collins. POLITICO had a chance to catch up with the couple, who became household names after they crashed the White House’s state dinner in November.

“This is our first public appearance in Washington, D.C., since November,” said Tareq Salahi. “We’re here to celebrate the America’s Polo Cup.” The event marked the beginning of polo season and started “the countdown to the USA vs. India match in June,” according to an invite. (You’ll recall that the state dinner the Salahis crashed was intended to honor the prime minister of India.)

“We have stayed quiet; we have stayed low key,” said Tareq. “That’s what we committed to do, and we’ve honored the commitment we’ve made with ourselves and with our counsel and with others to stay quiet and not discuss things that weren’t really necessary to discuss.”

Not that they had entirely put the state dinner in the past. In fact, Tareq was sporting White House cufflinks.

The White House Gatecrasher story….with facts filled in….a month later….it’s who you know…not what you do……

I was going to write a lot about this excellent review piece in the Washington Post, by Jason Horowitz, Spencer Hsu and Roxanne Roberts….but I’m not…it isn’t necessary once you read the piece……

It all boils down to this…..The Salahi’s are opportunists…plain and simple…they took advantage of several faults in the system to try to get themselves a spot on a reality show….

The White House is run by human beings that are in awe of the power atmosphere they  live in…..

The grunts go to work everyday and endure the infighting, back biting and pressure that comes with working with ‘masters of the universe’…

And in the end…..

The Salahai’s are going to probably skate because of all the above…….

And who ones friends are…..

Note: The Secret Service in-spite of all the hype….has serious problems within itself……
