BREAKING! Secret Service Sexing Must Be Rampant Because Marines Bought A Hooker In Brazil!

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Hitler gave me gonorrheaWell now we are getting to the bottom of this! When the Secret Service was sexing all those ladies in Cartagena, was that an isolated incident? NO IT WAS NOT! And how do we know this? Because Defense Secretary Leon Panetta “admitted” that last year three US Marines hired a sex worker in Brazil! Now, was there more to this ridiculous waste of pixels? Yes, there was more to this ridiculous waste of pixels: the Marines were busted down a rank after throwing her from their moving vehicle, and the US embassy paid her medical bills — which, after all, would be the gentlemanly thing to do.

But yeah, the New York Daily News, in its never-ending quest for relevance, decided to headline it thusly, for ?

“U.S. Marines Hired A Prostitute in Brazil Last Year, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta Admits”

So … we’re gonna guess that once again the liberal media has never actually met a Marine? That is not a headline! That is Tuesday! Semper fi! Hooah! Smedley Butler! KILL KILL KILL! Man, whatever happened to the good old days, when our fighting men and women were just gently reminded not to bring home VD to their sweetheart Sue?

Anyway, the fish rots from the head, so Barack Obama is using Brazilian prostitutes, impeach him burn him the end. [NYDN]

    Support the Troops?

    • bagofmice

      Only if they "get to the bottom" of this.

  • anniegetyerfun

    Well, since these are Marines, it's different, because something something black President.

  • anniegetyerfun

    On another note, HOLY FUCKING SHIT WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE FUCKING ASSWADS??!?!

    • miss_grundy

      It appears that the marine corps is just about taking anybody from off the street. I thought these guys were supposedly pickier than the other branches of the service in choosing applicants. But I guess not. They are probably just taking any redneck that walks into the recruiting station.

  • Barb

    Whats green and eats nuts?
    Gonorrhea
    Semper Infidelity!

  • SkinnyNerd

    We have Marines in Brazil?

    • ChernobylSoup

      Marines guard US embassies, so we have them in just about every country.

    • gullywompr

      Well, in a Brazilian, anyway.

      • Tundra Grifter

        One in a Brazilian?

        Just for old times' sake, check out the Wonkette photo of the Brazilian protester.

          This foto, over the years, has helped to restore my faith in humanity.

  • Pragmatist2

    I am shocked, I tell you. Shocked!

  • Callyson

    Members of Congress have asked whether the incident was an aberration, or a symptom of how staff behave on overseas trips.

    Why don't they just check with Senator Vitter?

    • anniegetyerfun

      My guess is that most members of Congress, like most Americans, have never been overseas and just can't IMAGINE what all the fuss is about.

  • anniegetyerfun

    And on a last note – were WWII troops technically supposed to be taking sex tips from Hitler?

  • ChernobylSoup

    When I was a wee jarhead we'd get in trouble for throwing out spent shell casings. These guys are throwing out whole human women?

    • anniegetyerfun

      So wasteful! They should consider recycling.

  • Jus_Wonderin

    I don't know how many times I've had a hooker get pissed when I shoved her out of my moving vehicle. You think they'd be a bit more grateful.

    • Barb

      That's why you should date only homeless chicks. You can just drop them off anywhere.

      • Fare la Volpe

        But even homeless chicks make you wait half an hour while they "get ready."

  • FraAnima

    I TOLD you this story needed moar Brazilian shemales!

  • SexySmurf

    You know who else gave me the clap?

    Seriously, I really need to know.

  • gullywompr

    Paid her medical bills!?!?! Stop apologizing for America, Obummer!

  • emmelemm

    Everything is terrible.

    (Seriously, they threw her from a moving car? Which does not appear to be in dispute, if the U.S. paid her medical bills.)

  • Doktor StrangeZoom

    These Marines admit to getting a Brazilian? Bet that hurt.

  • Man0nTheStreet

    This is why Open Heterosexuals must not be allowed in our Military!

    • OneYieldRegular

      Except maybe under a "don't ask, don't ask" policy.

    And last month a letter carrier in Phoenix was caught stealing gift cards from the mail. Truly, this is the most corrupt administration in our nation's history. SHAAAAAMME!!!

    EDIT: Why, yes, I used to enjoy the letter column in Sgt Fury and his Howling Commandos, which would complain about inaccurate details in weapons… I remember being rather exercised myself once when a WWII comic depicted–get this!–a B-17 bomber with tricycle landing gear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • gullywompr

      I drew once drew a B-17 with two ball turrets. Nobody complained.

    Seriously, anybody throwing a woman from a moving car should be summarily shot.

    Sorry. Not really. I guess. This really upsets me. Oh, but "first of all, thank you for your service." Fucking gag me with a bayonet.

    • Man0nTheStreet

      Tossing a woman from a car sound like *exactly* the sort of Dishonorable Conduct that would get you shot, at least in the French Foreign Legion…

    • Naked_Bunny

      Maybe just be more moderate and throw him from a moving vehicle? Not specifying the type of vehicle, mind you.

      • Doktor StrangeZoom

        C-130 at 20,000 feet?

        • Biel_ze_Bubba

          Marines do that on Tuesdays. But keep thinking.

    • Callyson

      Yes, so we need Mittens and his magic underwear to make us all keep our pants on.

      It frightens me that I can see how this all makes sense in wingnut land…

  • V572 Fehrnstrom

    The idea that young men stationed far from home would seek professional companionship is astonishing, horrifying, another black eye for That Colored Man in the White House.

    Although pitching her out of a vehicle is pretty disgusting. What'd she do—demand full payment?

  • SteveMcCroskey

          The current crop of chickenhawks screaming for moar war would have to stand on their grandma's shoulders to look this man in the eye.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Our current treatment of whores is just downright indecent. Why back in the day, soldiers were required to fall madly in love with their whores, want to marry them, and send their kid sister to America where she could get an education.

    • Doktor StrangeZoom

      You'll have to jump.

    • Steverino247

      When I was in Korea, I knew a guy who went to the local village, got serviced and then gave her his pay check the next day so she could buy her way out of the contract she naively got herself into. The rest of the month, he had no money and was borrowing change from everyone. The next month, he does this same thing again, only with another woman. The third month, yup, one more time. The First Sergeant called him into the Orderly Room and informed him he was restricted to post from now on. The young soldier protested this order and asked why? First Sergeant: "Because you're too fucking stupid to leave the post, that's why."

    • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

      required to fall madly in love with their whores…marry…send their kid sister

      Yes, where are the Nately's whores of yesteryear? No; wait..

  • Geminisunmars

    Gasp. Send in the Marines. Oh, wait…

  • WhatTheHeck

    embed a hooker in with the troops and everything runs more efficiently. See General Hooker circa 1860's.

    • Warwhatgoodfor

      There were so many of them following the grand army of the Potomac when he was the commander that the name "hookers" was taken from it and persists to this day.

    • fuflans

      um, i think pretty much every army in history had embedded hookers.

      at least that's what shakespeare, hammurabi, ovid, and joss whedon would have me believe.

    • Sir_Fartz_Alot

      you mean T.J. Hooker?

  • http://www.vinoverve.com Maman

    What? no female soldiers around?

    • CountryClubJihadi

      They probably look like Lynndie England.

  • Naked_Bunny

    I'm shocked myself. Aren't American Marines supposed to be getting their foreign prostitutes gratis? I thought I saw that in one of their ads.

  • Guppy

    We have to brutalize women over there so that we don't brutalize them here… or something…

  • RavenRant

    Since they're screeching for a full investigation into the Secret Service and prostitutes, can we finally find out why, during the Bush years, a male prostitute using an alias was given 200 day passes to the White House?

    'Journalist' 'Jeff Gannon' was actually pricey gay prostitute James Guckert. So why did Bush's Secret Service clear a hooker with a fake name to enter the White House 200 times?

    America needs answers!

  • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

    Well, Senator Juan McCain had a hot piece of Brazilian tail in his misspent sailor's youth, and look how he turned out!
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/22/brazilia

    His foreign policy advisor even touted it as foreign "experience"!
    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2008/10/mcca

    • chascates

      In his book, McCain wrote about his rambunctious time in Rio, saying he and his fellow sailors "indulged in the vices sailors are famous for."

      Now he indulges in the vices politicians are famous for.

    • fuflans

      man he was on a TEAR today.

      dude really needs to retire and get the kids off his lawn.

    • horsedreamer_1

      So, you're saying there's a bustier, browner, twenty years older version of Megz Mc Cabe somewher in the Amazon?

  • Numbat_Dundee

    I have a dream, that some day, in the backblocks of Rio, marines will push male and female prostitutes out of moving cars. Then we'll know for sure that "Don't ask. Don't tell." is dead.

  • ttommyunger

    What's most depressing about this story is the little-known fact that the Marines paid the woman, then threw her out of the car before actually fucking her. Piss-poor training, indeed!

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

      They didn't even get some jarhead?

      • ttommyunger

        Gyrene Crime is so confusing for country boys.

    • Warwhatgoodfor

      Well, nobody ever said marines were mental giants. Their drill sargents used to say you couldn't give them longer than a 15 minute coffee break, or you had to restart their training.

    I'm certain nothing like this ever happened in my parents' or grandparents' day, I'll tell you what.

    • Fare la Volpe

      Me offer you scintirrating conversation rong time.

    • Wile E. Quixote

      Hey, these dorks were Marines, not soldiers. Soldiers are in the Army. Seriously, want to know how to piss off a Marine? Call him a "soldier", they get really cranky about this.

      • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Mumbly_Joe

        That's a fair point; the Marines were, after all, historically an outgrowth of the Navy, which means that these prostitute-frequenting military gents were much closer to seamen.

        • anniegetyerfun

          I see what you did there.

    When JFK was stationed in San Diego in the Navy, he would go down to TJ and bang all the hookers he could.

  • RavenRant

    Speaking of corrupt administrations, are we supposed to have forgotten that Bush's #3 guy in the CIA went to prison for graft?

    High level CIA guy whoring himself out for $$$. No threat to national security there.

    • anniegetyerfun

      Please, everyone knows that the only corruption in government is between a colored President and investments in green energy.

      • RavenRant

        The people freaking out about Solyndra were oddly silent when a pallet of $10 BILLION in cash disappeared in one day in Iraq.

        The spectacular graft in defense contracting, treasury, department of interior, every area of the Bush Admin, not to mention abusing the DOJ for personal grudges…

        These GOP clowns should be hammered with this every time they open their bleating mouths.

  • chascates

    I remember in 2008 someone had brought up McCain's statement that he had some feminine companionship in Brazil when he was in the Navy (FIVE AND HALF YEARS!) but I trust he didn't argue about the price the way the young horny toads do these days.

    DOH! Chet Kincaid had the actual story! Note to self: read comments before commenting.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    If they are going to blame the president for these marines' behavior (i.e. patronizing prostitues), I gotta tell ya that, based upon the behavior of my shipmates and myself 30 years ago in Thailand, Hong Kong, Philippines, Korea, Japan, Singapore, Mombasa, and probably some other places I am forgetting, they're going to have to dig up the rotted corpse of Ronald Reagan and drag it through the streets with an SUV and a rope. At least we lived on a ship and didn't have cars to throw them from.

  • chascates

    Gingrich continues to receive protection from a scaled-back Secret Service detail, though it's unclear whether that will change before his announcement. Bloomberg/Business Week recently estimated that the detail is costing taxpayers at least $40,000 a day.

    How much of that goes to prostitutes? We should just create another civil service position for them to save money.

  • Wile E. Quixote

    What, they threw a woman from the car? What happened to the good old days when MARINES stood for "My Ass Receives Injected Naval Equipment, Sir?"

  • Wile E. Quixote

    And now for your entertainment, a Tom Lehrer classic.

  • rickmaci

    Your story is very vague. Were the Marines busted because they 1) hired a prostitute, or 2) because they threw that prostitute out of a moving vehicle, or 3) because the Defense Department had to pay the prostitute's medical bills for her injuries when they threw her from the truck? What do they teach in journalism school these days?

    Has everyone north of the Rio Bravo del Norte gone start, raving mad? I happen to be editing a translation of a Mexican sex-worker's memoirs (which we hope to have it ready for Fall Semester Women's and Latin American Studies courses). It's no secret that U.S. visitors have been coming (and have always come) to Latin America in part because we are not puritanical about sexual matters, nor do we legislate personal behavior. That said, throwing someone out of a moving car is a criminal act, in Brazil or anywhere else in the hemisphere, and has nothing to do with the victim's profession.

  • Ruhe

    Re the Military and prostitutes: Years ago I was working with an old carpenter on a house job and he started talking about how he'd ended up in the Navy at 18. "I hated my dad and didn't want to work with him in his carpentry business so I joined the Navy thinkin' I'd get away and end up somewhere where I could get a hooker. Straightaway in boot-camp another guy says to me 'aint you worried we'll end up in Vietnam?' and I says 'what the fuck is Vietnam?'. I wasn't too smart back then."
