Snooki Arrested; Will Obama Pay Attention Now?

Fate has strange ways of dealing a hand. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, famous (or infamous) because of her MTV reality show, Jersey Shore, was arrested in Seaside Heights, New Jersey on Friday afternoon.  At the time she was on a beach not far from the house where the television show is filmed. Apparently on a bender since the night before, Snooki was passed out face down in the sand. Eventually she was arrested for disorderly conduct (as no doubt several sand crabs called 911 to complain).

Snooki Is Arrested After Going on a Bender

What caused this poor girl to go out and get wasted? I am wondering if it has anything to do with President Barack Obama’s appearance on the television talk show The View. After hearing Barbara Walters butcher his name (Bawack Obama) on the show Thursday morning, the President answered questions and was stumped when asked if Snooki should run for mayor of Wasilia, Alaska (hometown of Sarah Palin). Obama said, “I’ve got to admit, I don’t know who Snooki is.” Da-da-da-dum!

Can you just imagine how heartbroken Snooki must have been as she sat with her pals in the Jersey Shore digs? Maybe they joked with her or made fun of her. Snooki, who makes “Obama Girl” Amber Lee Ettinger seem like a rocket scientist, probably sulked all day about not being as “big” as she perhaps assumed herself to be. Could it be that when she went out partying Thursday night, Snooki started knocking them back to ease her pain? Maybe she even said to her friend and fellow Jersey Shore castmate Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, “Obama doesn’t even know me. I probably can’t even get myself arrested.”

Flashforward to late Friday when “JWOWW” posted bail for little miss Snook, getting her out of the pokey and back to her Seaside Heights digs to figure out their next move. Meanwhile, the MTV suits must be hating all this publicity, although I do hear that they are planning several keg parties for Snooki and company in the days ahead.

Whatever happens, Snooki can rest easy because headlines all over the place were screaming out “Snooki Arrested” and clearly were competing with the ones about Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Snooki can be sure that Barack Obama knows who she is now. My, what a lucky girl. Now, if I could just hear Barbara Walters say “Come back, Bawack” a few more times, it would really make my day.
