NoDak GOPer arrested for DUI; pot-possessing passenger's name pronounced "doob"

Sen. Joe Miller was busted with a 0.13 BAL and a passenger with a very fun last name.
From the can't-make-it-up files:

On June 21, Republican North Dakota state Senator Joe Miller was arrested for DWI. (He pleaded guilty to alcohol-related charges last month.) Miller, 30, had open beers in his car and admitted to having about eight brewskis total that night. It was his second drinking-and-driving related arrest in the last six years, yet he's refused to resign from office.

But the kicker to this story was revealed in a KFGO Radio report published today. According to court documents obtained by the station, Miller had a passenger in his car who had ganja and three pot-smoking devices on him. His name? Matthew Dub, with Dub pronounced "Doob."

Was there any chance poor Matthew wouldn't end up a stoner with a name like that?

But the complaint contains another Onion-worthy detail. From the KFGO report:
The complaint alleges Dub had three devices for smoking pot in his possession, plus some "green leafy material" that was later determined to be marijuana...
So, in other words, officers in Grafton, North Dakota initially couldn't tell the difference between marijuana and, say, parsley or other "green leafy" materials? Maybe there's a reason Minnesota officers go through DRE training after all...

As an independent, this left wing bias is getting embarassing. City Pages, you are what you hate.

Do you have information that show's Mr. Miller as a hypocrite? And what does him being a republican have to do with it?

Mr. Rupar your attempt at humor is beyond lame.  If Grafton authorities could not tell the difference between marijuana and other "green leafy" materials, how then would they know that the devices Dub had in his possession were used for smoking pot?

@k2yeb You are a racist and a liar but in no way independent.  The amount of butthurt whining you do completely exposes you as a card carrying member of the conservative base.

@Matt Touchette As you can see Matt, MicheleBachmann is a typical Liberal who, when asked a question, they deflect it, and resort to name calling. It's their idea of "winning an argument". Pity their small minds.

@Matt Touchette Republicans are a bunch of dickheads who think they can use the government to tell gay people who they can love.  They think they can tell women what they can do with their bodies.  So when a Republican asshole is driving around drunk and doing drugs people are going to call him out for throwing stones while living in a glass house.

@digitalprotocol @TwinTown77  Hi.  My username is ditalprotocol. I quit school when I was in the eighth grade, but I actually test at a fifth grade level. I tend to post really clever responses like, "cops are stupid just like you have shown yourself to be!"  Thanks for playing.

@digitalprotocol He's stupid for asking a valid question? Doesn't your 1st grade teacher tell you that it is not nice to call other people names?

@k2yeb Yeah, both parties have drunk people.   Stop being so unfair.  Remember Republicans like kyeb here are the ones who exclusively get caught blowing dudes in men's rooms.  Republicans like kyeb are the ones who protect pedophiles.  Don't you remember Mark Foley?   Get your facts straight Orange!  Butthurt Cin is going to cry if you don't give Republicans their pedophilia cred.

@kennyX  you know little about history

The KKK allowed for democrats to take power in the south BECAUSE of the actions of the far right aka KKK

@MicheleBachmann I know nothing about history or politics? Well, I do know that Democrats founded the KKK and at one point the Grand Dragon was a Democrat West Virginia Senator.

@k2yeb You hate the modern GOP so much you cry about how City Pages treats them on every story.  You hate Republicans so much you agree with them about everything.  You are such a stupid and easily exposed liar.  Obviously you are a Republican dipshit because you know nothing about history, politics, or the world.  If you really hated Republicans you would call out racist troll dipshit kenny but you are obsessed with me.  Why do you keep changing your names Cin?

@k2yeb Sadly, there will never be a viable Independent Party in the U.S. as Marxist Liberalism is the "New Normal". The GOP is fading fast, not due to their agenda, but rather due to the fact that the demographics in America are changing. As white income-producing males become the minority in this country (who generally vote Republican) and are being replaced with a either non-white or mixed race population (who generally vote Democrat and are Government-dependent), there are are simply fewer Republicans out there who are voting (Many Republicans did not even bother to vote last election because they knew that they were outnumbered and correctly knew that their vote would not count even if they did.) Ironically, if it were not for the Electorate College, Romney would have won by the popular vote.

In any case, now that America has embraced the ideal of Big Government and Government dependence, not only will the GOP dissolve into nothingness, so will any chances of an Independent Party. Most importantly, the DLF will now dominate American politics as demographics change to their advantage and the Republican Party will be nothing more than a distant memory.

Of course, Democrats embrace this. Until the tax money runs out. The downward spiral of American companies outsourcing labor, investing overseas, and using other resources to avoid the DFL mantra of "Tax the Rich, and Give to the Poor" will only continue and lead to the demise of America. Which it will. No, it won't happen tomorrow. Or next year. Or even in the next decade. But it WILL happen. 

China is betting on it. And laughing all the way to the bank.
