  before Frank Gaffney was focusing on Huma Abedin, he was casting suspicion on a conservative named Grover Norquist, who's married to a Muslim woman. Now Norquist, you might have heard his name, he's famous for asking Republican candidates to take a pledge not to raise taxes. 

 
But Gaffney has said that Norquist is helping1 the Muslim Brotherhood2 infiltrate3 the conservative movement. Those allegations, by the way, were condemned4 by a number of conservative groups and got Mr. Gaffney barred from CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference. 
 
The American Conservative Union, by the way, investigated his allegations against Grover Norquist and found them quote "false and unfounded and resolved" quote "Its complete confidence in the loyalty5 of Suhail Khan," who is a Bush department official who Gaffney also raised questions about, "and Grover Norquist to the United States." 
 
So he's the intellectual inspiration behind the allegations from Bachmann and company. What makes Senator John McCain's statement today show frankly6 bold is that other Republican members of Congress have been either silent on Bachmann's charges or kind of supportive. One Michigan Republican Mike Rogers, who chairs the House Select Committee on Intelligence. So let me just repeat that. He is the chairman of the committee. Here's what he said recently on Frank Gaffney's radio show, seeming to buy into the Muslim infiltration7 theory, in this case, referring to a decision to edit FBI training materials to remove language that critics said was, frankly, anti- Muslim. 
 
Michele Bachmann is kind of taking the lead on this particular issue and going through and trying to figure out what they took out of the training materials and what they left in and why did it get changed? 
 
Now there's restating, Congressman9 Rogers is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. He's a very powerful lawmaker. 
 
As for Congresswoman Bachmann, we spent much of today trying to track her down, get her to answer some questions. She would not. After McCain blasted her she released a statement saying her allegations are being distorted. In her statement, by the way, she made no mention of Huma Abedin, no mention of McCain's statement against the congresswoman. Instead she focused on a new allegation, one that arguably has more substance to it. 
 
A newly elected Egyptian lawmaker named Hani Nour Eddin, was given a visa to come to the United States as part of an Egyptian government delegation10 that met with national security council officials. Now Hani Nour Eddin belongs to an Islamist group that has been designated a terror group by the United States. 
 
Now a lot of people, reporters and others, and politicians, have raised questions about how this guy got a visa and why he was given a visa. The State Department telling "The Washington Post," they're looking into the matter. 
 
Ah, time for "The RidicuList," and tonight we begin with a pretty important question: when you think of David Hasselhoff, what immediately springs to mind? Perhaps you think of one of his television shows, "Knight11 Rider," "Baywatch" or "America's Got Talent." Maybe you think of his legendary12 popularity in Germany, or if you're like us, he's forever first and foremost a singer. 
 
(David Hasselhoff singing)
 
Fabulous13 '80s song stylings aside, I think we can all agree that when it gets right down to it, the name David Hasselhoff is synonymous with one thing and one thing only: iced coffee. 
 
That's right, at Cumberland Farms convenience stores throughout New England with a veritable(真正的) army of very lifelike cutouts of David Hasselhoff now dares you to resist the lure14 of the store-brand(某一商店特制的商品上印制的商店标志) iced coffee. Why they missed an opportunity to call it "iced Hoffee" is beyond me. But still, brilliant marketing15.
 
But there's just one problem: The ads are such a hot item, they're disappearing faster than a "Baywatch" plotline dissolved(to shift scenes in a motion-picture film or videotape by having one scene fade out while the next scene appears behind it and grows clearer as the first one dims电影画面的淡入和淡出) into a gratuitous16 slow-motion running montage. Proving my theory, people love them some David Hasselhoff cutouts. 
 
It's crazy. We keep offering; like they come in, we probably get customers calling every night, asking to buy the Hasselhoff poster.
 
People are not only asking to buy the Hasselhoff poster. Some are just brazenly17 stealing them, at apparently18 such a rate of frequency that convenience-store clerks have seemingly come to expect it. 
 
He ain't going to last by the night. But he's still here. 
 
The company even gave a statement about this to our affiliate19, WHDH. 
 
Cumberland Farms says, "Although we are flattered our customers have become attached to our iced coffee ads, we do not encourage theft. The Hoff is there for all to enjoy."
 
That's right, people. Hands off the Hoff. He's there for all to enjoy, not unlike the sun, like the stars and the gentle spring breeze. The point is, would you steal a rainbow? No, you wouldn't. 
 
Well, maybe if you were in college and your friend's name was Rainbow. Then you'd have no choice, really.
 
One of my friends whose nickname at school was Hasselhoff, so we saw this sign and my roommate took it for him. 
 
OK. Not to condone20 theft, but you have to kind of admit a life-sized cutout of David Hasselhoff holding an iced coffee, that is one sweet decoration for a dorm room or for "The RidicuList."
