Like Son, Like Father
The father of our junior Senator seems to be a bit of an exhibitionist:
Police cited the father of U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman, Norm Coleman Sr., on Tuesday for lewd and disorderly conduct for allegedly engaging in a sex act in a car outside a pizzeria. According to a police report, the elder Coleman, 81, was having sex with 38-year-old Patrizia Marie Schrag, who was also cited for lewd and disorderly conduct. The St. Paul Pioneer Press first reported the citation. A police spokesman didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.The pizzeria in question is the Savoy, in a part of town that is borderline slum -- well away from City Hall, and the sort of place where wealthy men go to find hookers and be reasonably confident that their wives don't find out. Speaking of wives, this might finally cause the timid StarTribune to stop sitting on the various stories about Norm "Family Values" Coleman and his wife (and their alleged "open marriage") that have for years been a prominent part of local political gossip.
But it really does seem that all the family values are concentrated on the right.
Gotti Family value.
Translation: "Oh my God, my father thinks he's Hugh Grant."
Over in Table Talk, amidst the gales of laughter and observations that the apple didn't fall far from the tree, someone dubbed Coleman Jr. "Back Seat Norm."
