Dana – Can be a Boy’s Name or a Girl’s Name

R. Scott Moxley has posted a masterpiece on Congressman Dana Rohrabacher on the OC Weekly’s Naval Gazing blog.  And I’m still wiping tears from laughter as I type this. Click the link to the photo and sned the OC Weekly lots of hits. But the story sounds like that old Ed Wood flick, “Glen or Glenda?”

It seems the Congressman paid — dressed as a woman (think of your aging aunt who’s heavset with a mustache and too much perfume) a visit to RFK assassin Sirhan Sirhan in prison to get some sort of confession out of him.

more after the jump:

Here’s Dana’s quote from the Pasadena newspaper:

“I went to see [Sirhan] specifically because I believe he didn’t act alone and that the full story of Bobby Kennedy’s assassination has not been known,” he said. “I would like Sirhan Sirhan to finally, at long last, level with the Kennedy family and the American people, whether to clear his soul as part of his Christian beliefs or try to set the record straight.”

Ah, Sirhan was convicted of the crime he committed in a room full of witnesses.

With the voters of his district please, please come to your senses and vote this crazy nutjob out of office so he can pursue his wacky conspiracy theories on his own time?  Please elect Debbie Cook to Congress.

    Dan, thanks for bringing this Dana story to my attention. If you go back to the Pasadena Weekly story there are disgusting details that Moxley didn’t even mention.

    For example, why did he dress like a woman? Because he needed to have Sirhan himself request and welcome the visit, which he pulled off by pretending to be a female human rights worker, concerned with Sirhan’s treatment while being held in solitary confinement (where he’s been since 9/11 since other prisoners absurdly think he’s Al Qaeda.)

    Reese said Sirhan was told the person was coming to talk about the atrocious conditions he faces in solitary confinement. “So, of course, he [Sirhan] said sure, send this person in.”

    This is especially grotesque, given what we know of Dana’s sadistic delight in the abuse and torture of Arab prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.

    Actually, when I reread the Pasadena story, it’s not at all clear that Dana even dressed in drag. I’ve got an e-mail into both Moxley (who seems to have added that juicy detail) and original author Koslowski… I NEED to know if that’s true!

    Blogwhoring again Vern; and I’m ill-tempered too?

    What do you expect Dan?

    I will get to Vern, momentarily on his own post.

    You really should do a little more research before you post it up. Just because Scott said it, isn’t cutting it for either of you. It ruins everyone’s credibility on something as stupid as this story. Sorry, but it is the truth.
    Just say no to repeating unverified stories, we’ll all be better off, but I don’t always get them right either, for what it’s worth.

    I have never known you to be ill tempered either…?

    jesus christ dan, you never learn – you still think I put those auto-links up or whatever they are? Take it down if you don’t like it! What kind of comment do you think that was anyway? You are so predictable….

    I know Vern. But I also know how ot push your button and I did just that. Thanks for the ill-tempered and predictable response.

    Carl — I commented on a linked story by Moxley, who is seldom wrong. He posted the original topic and the obligation of research is on him. Since I generally trust his reporting, I had no problem believing his story.

    Touche Dan. I figured you were just pushing my buttons, a little after I pressed send. Well, last time I pay attention to your accusations of “blogwhoring,” kind of a dumb coinage in any case…

    Now if pinche Moxley or Koslowski would ever get back to me, I could clarify my story…
