Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Knucklehead of the Day

Penelope Keane, 49, is a nurse in England. Oh wait. Make that past tense. The Cambridge News reported:

On Wednesday, a professional conduct committee of the Nursing and Midwifery Council struck her off the register after finding her guilty of eight charges of misconduct.
Well what exactly did Penelope Keane do? Well on one occasion she "had to be propped up by staff after she arrived to look after frail pensioners and tearfully admitted she had just downed a bottle of vodka."
(Makes me wonder about the rest of the staff.)
Oh and then there was the time she, um, I'll let the newspaper report that:
After boasting she had been lounging in her garden sunbathing Keane pulled up her T-shirt and yanked down her bra to expose her breasts to stunned colleagues and an elderly male resident.
Now in Penelope's defense, she ... well, I cannot think of another defense. Getting drunk and flashing was not the worst of it. She snored. The newspaper said:
The committee had also heard how Keane broke strict rules when she was frequently caught asleep and snoring on duty in a reclining chair instead of caring for patients.
The story ended with this line, "Keane, from Chatteris, did not appear at the disciplinary hearing in central London."
How much you wanna bet she was sleeping another one off? Don's helpful home hint: Don't show up drunk for work and don't flash your breasts -- well, unless you are working at the Mardi Gras.
