I was going to make a nice long post about the outrage caused by Ann calling the Silky PonyTM a faggot, but for some reason it didn't save and I lost it.

It was a great post, but not one I'd care to try to do again. Needless to say, most of the right and left blogosphere are still crying in their oatmeal because pretty boy Edwards was called a mean name.

A case for getting ahead of the 'evil' media:

Marciano: Punish me if you see fit

Talkbacks for this article: 2

MK Yoram Marciano (Labor) submitted a complaint to the Knesset Ethics Committee on Sunday - against himself.

Following his involvement in a bar brawl in Herzliya on Wednesday night, in which he allegedly attacked security guards and received several blows in return, Marciano expressed regret for his actions and apologized before the Knesset for damaging the honor of the institution.

  • 'Witnesses contradict Marciano'

    He also called on the Knesset to take disciplinary action against him, if they found it fitting.

    He emphasized, however, that he had acted innocently and that most of the media reports on his behavior were false.

    On Wednesday, Marciano attended a party at the Rio nightclub in Herzliya celebrating the birthday of a Knesset official. There were varying reports of what actually happened during the confrontation between Marciano and the security guards at the club.

    According to a police complaint filed by Marciano, the incident occurred when he was trying to leave the club through a back door, which was no longer used as an exit, and was apprehended by security guards. According to a conflicting report filed by one of the security guards, Marciano himself struck out at the guards and shouted at them that they were mistreating a public official. (link)

  • Weird to see a politician turn himself in. Yes it is in Israel and not here, but would be nice if some of the 'responsibility' rubbed off on certain members of our congress.
