I'm mainly posting this because I think it would make for an awesome comedy film: a bunch of Congressmen get drunk and/or high in a foreign land, adventures ensue. Perhaps the cinematic adaptation would work better with a bipartisan committee, and the President's waster son or something. Christina Hendricks as an Angela Merkel sexpot?

On a more serious note, is this just evidence that the elected are human, or indicative of a serious disregard for the outside world (imagine if this had occurred in China)?

Oh god. Blubbery politicians (and a few scrawny ones http://www.politico.com...) stripping down and swimming? AND THEN THEIR CHILDREN AND WIVES JOIN THEM?!

Ewwwwwwwwwwww

Oh, and that's a fantastic movie idea. I'm thinking along the lines of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (don't even mention that rip off that begins with an H) where they go to some political convention in Vegas and end up going on an alcohol binge and wind up out in the desert chasing lizards.

OK, maybe there was more of a Scary Movie vibe than I originally anticipated.

Cheers. Yeah, maybe the Congressmen could get stoned and release the elephants from Las Vegas' zoo? They ride on the beasts' backs, pass out, and wake up in the deep desert, having unconsciously slid off them during the night?
