The Uninvited II

Sometimes the sequel takes place at an earlier time than the original. Not long before the Salahis, there were the Dardens:

A Georgia couple arrived at the White House on the wrong day for a tour recently and got much more than they bargained for.

After being screened by the Secret Service, Harvey and Paula Darden of Hogansville, Georgia, were led into a lavish invitation-only breakfast where they met the president and the first lady.

How the couple was able to get into the White House event without being on the guest list was called “dumb luck” by the Dardens. The White House is calling it a “nice gesture” and has been explaining how this incident is nothing like the breach of security that took place when Tareq and Michaele Salahi infamously crashed the Obamas’ state dinner.

If it was an invitation-only breakfast, and they were let in, how is it not like the Salahis — other than they didn’t “crash” the party but were instead taken to it?

No wonder Obama seemed ticked during the 60 Minutes interview last Sunday — security around there runs looser than Al Gore’s facts.
