Not intended to be a factual portraitOh Charlene Idelle Hunziker, 47, of Council Bluffs, Iowa, gurrrrl, don’t you ever change! First, a liquid lunch at PF Chang’s, where you harass all the customers about NOBAMA being a Muslin; second, embarrass your daughter so much that she leaves you down in Chinatown (or at least the West Des Moines version thereof); third, explain to the copper on call that you don’t need jailing, as that is for little people, like Democrats, and not fine upstanding Republicans like you; four, ?????; and five, PROFIT!

Officer Chris Morgan said in his report that when he arrived, Hunziker reportedly yelled at him and said he didn’t need to be there because “she was a Republican.”

Hunziker reportedly refused a sobriety test and admitted to having consumed alcohol, but insisted she was not drunk, according to the report.

A witness reportedly told Morgan that Hunziker was drunk and had been bothering other customers with her opinions about the previous night’s presidential debate, her support for Romney and her belief that “Obama had ruined this country and … Muslims were causing America all these problems.”

Thanks, ActorBut all of those things are simple objective FACT! Why is the West Desmoines Gestapo jailing Charlene Hunziker for her Constitutional Right of Free Speech (drunkenly yelling about Muslins and refusing to leave someone else’s private property)??? Next thing you know, someone will put her in a gulag by criticizing her drunken race-baiting!

We for one would never do that.

En route to the police station, where she was booked before being transported to the Polk County Jail, Hunziker reportedly said that “she was doing this because she was a good mother.”

One good mother to another.

    Both photos radiate the kind of class and dignity that someone who goes on a bender in a PF Changs would have. I am surprised that this "Mother of the Year" type didn't yack her cookies in the back of the squad on the way down to the pokey. The freeze frame effect on the park bench pukette photo is fantastic, someone really captured a moment with that one. I hope they took it into the photo kiosk in WalMart or someplace similar and blew it up to an 8-1/2 by 11 for a cherished memory for her.
