No Minister

It was a good laptop, Marilyn, and I liked it.

No matter how crazy you think the USA can be, there will always be some real news out of the nation that beats your fictional idea hands down.

One of the latest comes out of Alaska where the Anchorage Daily News interviewed a woman named Marilyn Hueper about how she got raided by the FBI:

Hueper said the agents broke down her door Wednesday morning as she, her husband and some guests were asleep. When she asked why they didn’t just knock, she was told that they did, but no one answered, so the agents went to get breakfast. When they returned, they knocked again, and when no one answered, they broke open the door, she said.

Hueper said the officers had guns drawn and handcuffed her, her husband and their guests. She and her husband were put in different rooms and couldn’t see what was happening as the officers searched, according to Hueper.

Sounds serious. The FBI thought they had the right suspect:

An officer pulled out a photo of a woman in the Capitol on Jan. 6 and asked if she knew who the woman was. Hueper was surprised, she said, because the woman looked like her and had a coat like one she owns. But Hueper said she’s never had a sweater like one the woman was wearing in a second picture.

Hueper said she was able to point to other photos, provided later in the interview, to show differences in her appearance from the woman shown. The woman in the photo has detached earlobes — hers are attached. The other woman also has a different brow shape, Hueper said, adding that she’s never worn the kind of high boots that the woman wore.

“This chick looks like she has detached earlobes, which makes me jealous,” Marilyn Hueper said of the woman in the screen grabs. “I’ve always wanted detached earlobes.”

Don’t we all. But it turns out that this was not about any charge of trespassing, let alone “sedition” or “insurrection”.

You may recall such terms being thrown around after Jan 6 by hysterics and Democrat partisan axe grinders looking for their own Reichstag Fire moment.

No, this was about a laptop. A very special laptop:

“And they said, ‘Well, we’re here for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop.’ And I said, ‘Oh, so it was stolen and it’s at large, good to know. I thought maybe it was just conspiracy theory, so thanks for the intel,’” she said.

Heh. She sounds like a very cool customer. It was actually confirmed way back in early January by Pelosi’s COS that one of her laptops was missing, but “was only used for presentations.” Well sure, but there could still be some very juicy stuff on there and I’m sure Botox Pelosi wants it back.

Sending the FBI to get it is probably a mistake however, given their recent standards of investigation, as evidenced by the picture on the right that they recently submitted in a criminal complaint.

In addition, if the USA wanted actual comedians who enjoyed puncturing the pompous and the powerful, you really couldn’t do better than using this story of the FBI, Pelosi’s laptop and Alaska as the basis of a parody skit.

I very much doubt Saturday Night Live or any of the late-night comedic hosts will do so, but if they do here’s the famous movie scene they could use:

  1. I, once upon a time found Buster Keaton and the Laurel and Hardy clips funny then at that time the “shorts” at the local hall doubling as a movie theatre had some Tom and Jerry, Woody Woodpecker and Mickey Mouse.
    Saw a cartoon recently where a Dad took his daughter to his office on “take a child to Work Day” only to have her in tears of disappointment when the Clowns were not on show.
    Haha Tom
