No Speeding Ticket For Mitch

A Purdue University police officer stopped Purdue University President Mitch Daniels last week for speeding 42 mph in a 20 mph zone and rolling through a stop sign. The dash cam video of the police officer shows her obvious surprise when she discovers she had pulled over the university's president. Daniels politely explained to the officer he had left without his cell phone and was in a hurry back home to retrieve it when she stopped him. He was very courteous to the female police officer, and she responded in kind by letting him off without a ticket or written warning. Daniels later tweeted about the traffic stop.

Just 2 questions:

How many phonebooks does he sit on
the front seat to be able to see the
roadway over the dashboard?

Hasn't he learned anything from Hillary's
use of private cellphones?

I got rear-ended years ago in Houston. Guy gets out of the car, says he's sorry. We call the po-po. While we're waiting, the guy tells me he owns a BBQ restaurant and gives me free dinner coupons. Cop shows up. Turns out the cop goes to his restaurant all the time. They know each other. Cop doesn't want to write him up. The guy says "No, I was wrong. Give me the ticket." That's what a real man does...takes responsibility. Not our man, Mitch, though. And what's with the tweet. I'm sorry, but what a child...
