Skinny Dipping in the Hamptons, Yes. Skinny Dipping in the Sea of Galilee, No

I have to hand it to our politicians these days—they really know how to embarrass themselves in ways that just get more and more creative.

I think at this point we’ve all heard about a group of congressional Republicans enjoying a late night of celebration at the Sea of Galilee in Israel and Rep. Kevin Yoder, (R-Kansas), deciding to go for a little skinny dip in the place where, you know, Jesus walked on water.

I just can’t imagine what was going through his mind when he did that.

Yonder recently made a statement explaining himself: “A year ago, my wife, Brooke, and I joined colleagues for dinner at the Sea of Galilee in Israel. After dinner I followed some Members of Congress in a spontaneous and very brief dive into the sea and regrettably I jumped into the water without a swimsuit. It is my greatest honor to represent the people of Kansas in Congress and [for] any embarrassment I have caused for my colleagues and constituents, I apologize.”

Here in the Hamptons, if you want to go for a skinny dip, you can do so at your own pool, or your significant other’s pool. That’s what it’s for…or so I’ve been told.
