Don’t Give Them a Show, Give ‘Em a Movie

By Debbie Schlussel

What’s disgusting to me is that Tareq and Michaele Salahi appear to be on their way to getting everything they wanted in their White House-crashing stunt.  They’re now under contract with a production company, they got their Matt Lauer interview, and it looks like their 15 minutes are getting extended–all courtesy of the NBC family (“Today Show,” Bravo, etc.).  Unfortunately, I predict that they won’t be prosecuted, and if they are, they’ll get a deal of a tiny, minor irrelevant blemish on their records.  It’s already a win-win for this couple.

Meanwhile, private investigator Bill Warner discovered more about the Salahis that expands the joke they already are.  Tareq Dirgham Salahi is Chairman of something called the United States Parachute Association.  Enter punch line here.

Address: 1440 DUKE ST, ALEXANDRIA VA 22314-3403
Phone: 703-836-3495

And while she completely lied about being a Victoria’s Secret model and Washington Redskins cheerleader,  Michaele Ann Holt Salahi had a modeling agency, Michaele’s Models, among her many “dabblings.”  Judging from the Salahis’ track record, I’m guessing Michaele’s Models did as much modeling as she did.  As in, probably very little.

And, yes, there’s that pesky American Task Force on Palestine board membership of Tareq Salahi, I told you about over the weekend (and which the New York Times scrubbed from its own reporting).  Whether or not Mr. Salahi is, in fact, a Muslim is irrelevant because the ATFP is a Muslim-dominated organization which refuses to condemn HAMAS, Islamic Jihad, etc.  So he’s a watercarrier for the Islamic set with his activism in that organization (which honored Palestinian Muslim and Texas Gov. candidate Farouk Shami and gets a lot of cha-ching from him).

And then there’s that arrest for “abusive language,” where it appears he likely swore at–and perhaps threatened–his employee, Diane Weiss.


Don’t give ’em a reality show.  Give them a movie.  She can be Owen Wilson, and he’s the Vince Vaughn in this story.  Sadly, while it’s a joke, it’s not as funny as “Wedding Crashers.”

Thanks for the heads up on this couple, as I’ve been hearing about them for awhile now, and didn’t know the complete story. It does seem strange that they were simply able to waltz into the dinner they crashed….

“Parachute company” – have an unhappy landing, you two frauds! The two of them deserve Obama.

Just came from the USPA website and did not find Mr. Salahi listed as any officer. They have a President, but no Chairman.

Nice article and nice idea for a mock movie poster, too, Debbie. I am still waiting to hear from them why they were not crashers. I am very skeptical, but wanna hear their speil, anyway.

I heard something on the news earlier that said they had received emails from someone in the White House…perhaps they helped get them through security or sent the invitation?? Did you hear anything about it? Great poster idea!

I said to my wife the minute the news broke of a couple crashing a white house gathering this is a complete fraud designed to take our minds off healthscare, unemployment, and H1N1. These people were brought in for this specific purpose. They are like Bill Clintons Monica Lewinsky designed to distract.
I could care less about this scam story, the broad looks like something you find at 2AM to receive a Lewinsky, and her husband is one Obama’s homegrown terrorist liaisons.

Isn’t this the same outcome as the balloon boy Mom & Dad tried to get? – Fame and fortune and their 15 minutes?
