Secret Service agent caught up in scandal posted Palin pic to his Facebook page

The agent in question posted a photo of himself and Palin on the campaign trail in 2008 with the caption, "checking her out."

We are not surprised he couldn't keep his pants zipped.

Palin's reaction:

"Well check this out, bodyguard, you're fired," Palin said during an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. "I hope his wife ... sends him to the doghouse -- as long as he's not eating the dog, along with his former boss."

Republicans are trying hard to tie Obama to the Secret Service scandal - at least tangentially - by pointing to a "lack of leadership" as the cause.

Palin piled on:

"Boys will be boys, but they shouldn't be in positions of authority, and I think it's pretty embarassing," Palin said. "But if you consider what's going on and the state of our government with, look who's running the show, boys not considering that there are ramifications to their actions."

Palin continued: "I've had enough of these men being dogs and not being responsible and not entrusting, being able to allow us to trust what these boys are doing in Washington."

It's good politics, but not necessarily true. One must assume that these shenannigans by the Secret Service have been going on for a while - part of the culture in the SS and military. No doubt supervisors either participated or turned the other way when it was happening. Palin was right -- "boys will be boys" - and while it is correct to punish those involved, all it means is that the next time, agents won't bring the hookers back to their rooms and try harder to be discreet.
