Mormons and Alcohol Don't Mix: Senator Mike Crapo Arrested for DUI

 This is why you can't have nice things, Mormons.  Just a little booze and you "go wild" faster than a teenage girl at Mardi Gras.  Instead of asking 'do I drink too much alcohol?' it is either zero or OMG with these people...

Over the weekend, Idaho Senator Mike Crapo was arrested for Driving Under the Influence in the DC area.  According to news reports, he had half a Zima and was completely BLASTED.

All joking aside, a senator arrested for DUI is a major scandal in Idaho.  Especially since he is a Mormon.

You see, Mormons don't do scandalous things.  Especially drink.  You might sully the name of the church, and the LAST thing you want to do is something that would disrupt the cash flow reputation of the church...

According to news reports, Crapo is very sorry and is embarrassed this happened to him.  You know, boiler-plate 'I'm sorry I got caught' BS.

The funny thing is that hours before his arrest, he was penning this piece about Inaction from the government on the Fiscal Cliff crisis.

Apparently the article was so tough to write he needed a few drinks to get it out?  Or he needed a drink to celebrate after writing it?

Either way, I'm sorry he don't have to compete for his seat until 2016.  I'm also sorry he will most-likely be re-elected, since he is a Republican in one of the reddest states in the union.

Oh well, I can't be too mad at the guy.  I've driven home after having too much to drink on occasion, and I regret doing it.  I'm glad I didn't get pulled over like he did, and I'm glad I didn't have to get arrested or into an accident before I realized I shouldn't be drinking and driving.

With that said, be safe this holiday season.  Eat, drink and be merry on Christmas and New Years, but don't do a Crapo.  If you drink, don't drive.

Please Share it! :)

I promise not to do a crappo. I mean what a hypocrite this guy is. Of course we in Oregon once had Bob Packwood so I can't hold my head too high.

His name is really Crapo? *snicker* And HALF a Zima? That's just sad.
