You know, we didn’t really pay much attention to this whole Secret Service prostitution scandal thing because we kind of believe if job description requires you to possibly take a bullet for another person, your personal life is not our business. However, there was of course the threat of espionage and secret-stealing, which foreign governments often use women for (apparently none of these guys have ever seen any James Bond movies), so … shame on you Secret Service? But in checking into the story, there is one thing we did notice: The whole story is a bit reminiscent of the John Bolaris Do-Shot-gate. Allow us to explain.
Both Bolaris and the Secret Service reportedly went out looking for women. Both found them. But where you would expect Bolaris to “accidentally” end up with a prostitute, that happened to the Secret Service. And where you expect the Secret Service to be drugged, scammed, and left in a cab with a painting, that happened to Bolaris. And while Bolaris actually helped the FBI end a crime ring, the Secret Service got caught stiffing prostitutes (in more than one way, HEY-OH). It really seems like someone took the main protagonists from each of these stories and just switched them. In the end, the Secret Service folks are either out of a job or are about to be out of one, while Bolaris sits on a phone-book on top of a barstool, making sure to keep one eye on his drink all night.
