John Conyers reading Playboy on a plane

Just a heads-up: Republicans are about to make a big stink over another Democratic scandal in Congress. Of course, it's a non-issue: Michigan Dem John Conyers was looking at the nudie pictures in Playboy… while on a crowded commercial flight.

Conyers was captured flipping through the centerfold in a lame cell phone video taken by a fellow passenger in his aisle. (Waste twelve seconds of your life watching it below or just read on.) The Democrat, whom you may remember from his appearance in Fahrenheit 9/11 ("Michael, no one reads these bills," etc.) may be a married man, but he's no Family Values hypocrite. Carry on, sir, although you may want to do your whacking off in private.

I'm only sharing this with you because you will hear about it and wonder what the big fuss is all about. The answer, as you can see, is a whole lotta nothing.

In fact, the real danger in this incident is the passenger, who was clearly using a cell phone while in flight.
