MM and I have been feeding the silly/unimportant election claims, and I found one. It's true, too! Romeny was arrested at the age of 17...for sliding down the slopes of a golf course on a huge block of ice! Yep, that Mitt is a real wild man! I dunno about you, but I'm having trouble creating a mental image of this activity.
Good sleuthing, Habee!
I feel closer to him than ever now!
Reminds me of when my dormmates and I went sledding on cafeteria trays!
You can really see Mitt's character development.
I bet that one incident is what inspired him to save the 2002 WINTER Olympics in SLC!
He 'turned it around' from a negative (personal arrest) to a positive (if you're going to luge, be the fastest in the world so they can't catch you!)
I have no idea. Trespassing maybe? Illegal use of an ice block? Golfing without clubs?
He was late for his "iced tee" time.
He violated the club's "no outside food or drinks" policy.
The ice block was made from municipal water and not Perrier.
He neglected to yell "fore" before descending the hill.
They were actually ok about the ice. It was the beer cart that ticked them off.
but seriously, very funny post.
Reminds me of a guy I know, he used to DJ. One day he showed up to a party and put his strobles on the front of his van... once they got the runners to come back to the party they thought it was pretty funny.
Once people start getting into who did what at seventeen years old.... it so often becomes a slippery slope, doesn't it...
Well, I for one am happy Mitt had some fun in his life. He needs it.
Why wasn't he arrested on a felony for impersonating a law enforcement officer...with the uniform and everything?
Why wasn't he arrested for a brutal attack on a classmate where he had someone else hold the kid down while he hacked the victims hair off?
Give me a break. Mr. Holier than nothing is freaking me out.
It's always bizarre with Romney. Like pretedning to be a cop and pulling people over. Or living in a mansion in France and calling yourself a suffering missionary.
The deal is that he and wife Ann got big blocks of ice and put towels on this and slid down the slopes at a golf course. The record was sealed, kinf of like the GW Bush coke bust.
FYI, Romney didn't spend his whole mission in the mission home. When he says he lived in poor areas, he's clearly not talking about that...

Okay, I understand that airport security had to get a lot more tougher since the horrific aftermath of 9/11, but this is just plain ridiculous. Seriously, how is a guy that wears baggy pants a threat to national security? That doesn't make any sense. Oh well. Anyways, here's...
