Rhode Island Green

Another day, another Republican caught in a scandal of his own hypocrisy:

House Minority Leader Robert Watson was arrested Friday at a police checkpoint in East Haven, Conn.

The Journal says the police report alleged that the Republican lawmaker's eyes were "extremely glassy and bloodshot" and that he smelled of alcoholic beverages as well as the "distinct odor of marijuana."

The police report said the officer found a "small plastic sandwich bag containing a green leafy plant-like substance and a small wooden marijuana smoking pipe" on Watson after his arrest.


The lawmaker drew fire in February after saying, in reference to the state General Assembly, "I suppose if you're a gay man from Guatemala who gambles and smokes pot, you probably think that we're onto some good ideas here."

What's next -- revelations that Watson is actually gay...or maybe from Central America?

Has anyone seen a real copy of his birth certificate?
