Final Judgement For The Streaker


Billionaire Tosses Obama Streaker A Bone 

He thought he would get a million dollars, but the man who degraded himself to promote a billionaire's website will only get some rent money and help for his sister's hospital bills. Filthy rich website owner Alki David has decided that Staten Island's Juan Rodriguez failed to qualify for the million dollar prize because he didn't get within earshot of President Obama at a Philadelphia rally on Sunday. But "despite the failed attempt," David is going to pay Rodriguez's rent for one year, cover his sister's hospital bills, and give him an undisclosed but supposedly "generous" amount of cash. And all Rodriguez had to do was humiliate himself before the world and get arrested. Who says the economy's dead? Rodriguez hasn't said whether he thinks this is a raw deal, but he has apologized to the President. Yesterday the Secret Service paid him a visit, and afterward he issued a statement saying, "Mr. Obama, if you feel I disrespected you in any way, I'm very sorry for that." But it's been four days since the rally, and the ever-aloof Obama has yet to comment on the incident. Is this Obama's Katrina?

The 'undisclosed' amount is thought to be anywhere from 3 to 500 thousand dollars. All in all, not a bad pay day for Mr. Rodrguez.

  2. I think I`d do that for even that much money. I`d probably get shot in the process, though.

  5. I'd probably do it. People forget faces pretty fast. I'm positive I wouldn't recognize the guy on the street. As for people that know him, he can always spin it as something cool instead of humiliating. It's all about the attitude.
