Obama does cocaine and gets to be President

  • Phelps isn't being stoned to death for getting stoned - he's being stoned to death for getting caught. It's a small but important distinction. As long as there's no photo of Bill with a 3 chamber to his mouth, he can still play his not inhaling card, and Obama swears it's all in the past, too. Doesn't change it's illegal, and Phelps was stupid enough to let someone photograph him while he broke the law - losing his sponsors and being suspended from swimming - consider that his stupidity tax.

  • I know right! I don't agree with drug use in any way, but I don't think we should say it's ok for some and not ok for others.

  • He did get suspended for 3 months from swimming, he lost the $1700 that USA Swimming pays the national team members for that 3 months, as well as losing endorsements. I do understand they are trying to set an example, but why is it okay for politicians but not for swimmers to do this stuff?

  • Phelps still could have just said he didn't inhale, or that it wasn't pot he was smoking. His only stupid act was being honest about it and 'fessing up...
