OUT OF CONTEXT: I crashed the White House State Dinner, and all I got was a T-shirt and a lousy pict

Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

A lot of words are being thrown around about that Virginia couple accused of crashing President Obama’s first state dinner last month.

Words like “interlopers.” “Security breach.” “Reality TV.” And “Satan.”

Still, what many people are missing is the truly awe-inspiring essence of this incident.

I did not know you could crash a White House party.

I would not have thought it was possible.

But this couple has shown that, not only is it possible, it’s probable.

Now I feel as if I could do anything. ANYTHING!

I could drink that glass of milk and not suffer the flatulence of my lactose intolerance.

I could rig my car and turn my morning commute into a scene from “Death Race.” (“Signal? Here’s my signal!” BOOM!)

I could not pay my taxes, say my dog ate my return and get away with it. And I don’t even have a dog.

Yes, this couple has shown that “protocol” is just a bunch of rules that somebody made up and other people follow because they’re afraid of being Tasered and going to jail.

For that, they deserve our deepest consideration.

There’s talk that they have been angling for a spot on the reality TV show “Real Housewives of D.C.” I say that’s thinking small.

They could host their very own reality TV series — “Party Crashers.”

Each week they could present and comment on video clips of people crashing parties all over the world.
