The Assumption Parish Sheriffs Department
reported finding a man's body in Belle River
just south of the Spunky Monkey Tavern.
The man's name will not be released until his family has been notified.
The victim apparently drowned after consuming an excessive amount of alcohol.
He was wearing black fishnet stockings,
a red garter belt with matching bra,
bright red lipstick, eye shadow,
and an Obama T-shirt.
The deputy removed the Obama T-shirt
to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.
This says it all:
I sat, as did millions of other Americans,
and watched as the government underwent
a peaceful transition of power a few months ago.
At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism
while Barack Obama took his Oath of office.
However, all that pride quickly vanished
as I later watched 21 Marines,
in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President.
It was then that I realized how far America 's Military had deteriorated..
Every one of them missed.
