From Twitchy: Best. Sex. Scandal. Evah!

Posted on | March 16, 2012 | 18 Comments

Folks, I am seriously enjoying Twitchy, the new Twitter-based news site that Michelle Malkin has created. But they need to work on their headlines, because this one is waaaay too understated:

PM Belden Namah accused
in casino sex scandal, gambling

Back in the day, I’d have demanded a re-write from the copy desk, because this is one super-awesome sex scandal

SYDNEY’S Star casino has been rocked be fresh sexual harassment allegations involving the Deputy Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea.
The Deputy Prime Minister of PNG Belden Namah has been accused of sexually harassing a male blackjack dealer at the casino and behaving in a drunk and threatening manner, according to staff incident reports obtained by Fairfax Media.
According to the reports Mr Namah was allegedly gambling in the high roller room at around 7am on April 16 last year when he was asked to stop drinking due to “intoxication”.
A blackjack dealer then alleges Mr Namah started “teasing me by asking my mobile number” and then allegedly said to the man “Can I f… you tonight?”
This was followed up with “Can I love you, u (sic) are so pretty to me” and repeated requests for sex and to meet the man outside according to the dealer’s statement.
The staff statements from five separate employees say that despite the alleged sexual harassment the casino allowed Mr Namah back into the venue several hours later when it allegedly learnt he had paid $800,000 into a gambling account for use at the casino.

The per-capita Gross Domestic Product in Papua New Guinea? $2,416. So the deputy prime minister’s gambling account was equal to the combined annual income of 331 of his country’s citizens.

“Can I f– you tonight? . . . You are so pretty to me.”

Yeah, that’s Grade A primo sex-scandal stuff right there.

    If Megan McCain thinks her boobs are big she needs to see mine I can match her tit for tat.

    Hahaha, oh man, I saw that one too Smitters.  Good for Mr. Namah for not beating around the bush, so to speak!  Twitchy really was another brilliant idea from Michelle.

    Err, this was Stacy’s find. Derp.

    It’s OK. All the time I see people linking Smitty’s posts and mistakenly crediting me, so it’s nice to see one occasionally go the other way.

    The question is, Stacy:  If you had to choose, would you choose the Deputy Prime Minister from Papua New Guinea, or the super hot vixen from the SPLC?

     I wouldn’t touch that straight line with a ten foot Pole from Gdansk.

    You both are a crack-up.  All the best, good sirs.

    $2416 a year?  If only those lazy-assed Papua New Guineans would work harder, Minister Namah could afford a decent prostitute and wouldn’t have to harass the help.  Why, I bet that $800,000 he put into casino chips was his whole life’s savings!

    Naturally, I imagine that blue-nosed Santorum will have something disapproving to say of the whole situation, but he’s the sort of guy who would never hit a soft 16.

     How do you know he wasn’t apologizing to Smitty?

    Belden Namah is a potential Democratic Party Rock Star!   

    Papua New Guinea is not that far from a certain choice ambassador state!

    Bummer that Oz is listed as a tag…though I do understand, the Aussies must be having a fit in a way.

    Two comments:

    1) It would seem Tranquil has been dipping into the NyQuil.

    2) The way to tell the difference between the two is to remember this about their writing styles: Smitty is The Wall Street Journal and Stacy is pure tabloid.

    I bet blue-breath Willard will having something disapproving to say about the gambling situation…oh, wait…Mormons were the bag men for the Mob in Vegas and Howard Hughes’s henchmen.

    And the difference between the way DPM Namah behaved to the dealer and the way he behaves to his constituents? He doesn’t sweet-talk his constituents.

    And of course, this is of major importance to RSM in his capacity as Ambassador to Vanuatu, since right now the US diplomatic office is in, yes, Papua New Guinea.   So he’s not scandal-mongering for page views.  (At least, he’s not primarily scandal-mongering for page views.)
