whether a Republican congressman one year ago jumped in Lake Kinneret, also known as the Sea of Galilee, without his swim trunks on.

A year ago.

An f-in year ago.  Skinny dipping.  One person.  And some others who — wait for it — got drunk.

Actually the subject of an FBI investigation.  As Jonah Goldberg points out, it’s a big freakin’ lake, which is why they call it a Sea:

If anything, the news should have been “FBI wastes tax dollars to investigate non-event.”

And what might the crime have been?  Or does Obama’s FBI not need a potential crime when Republicans are involved.

Is this like the Gibson Guitar case where we’re going to prosecute someone for violating some other country’s laws — assuming it’s even a violation, which it probably isn’t.

And how convenient that it’s just leaked to Politico just before the Republican National Convention.

So Politico can run a breathless three-screen EXCLUSIVE about it and everyone on the internets from bloggers to ABC News and WaPo will write about it.

Your government and mainstream media at work.  One distraction after another.
