James O’Keefe’s new music video: Landrieu Dance

11:12 am in Politics, Republican Party by twolf1

I don’t really know what to say about this. It is truly pathetic.

Consider yourself warned, and just know that you will never get this 7 minutes and 19 seconds of your life back.

Enjoy… or whatever:

…told you.

UPDATE: David Weigel spoke with Christian Hartsock, the director of the video:

James and I had been talking about doing something like this around the time of his arraignment,” wrote Hartsock in an e-mail. “We were inspired by George Michael’s 1998 video ‘Outside’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Black or White’ — both of which were released as kind of fuck-you-to-the-system pieces after those artist’s run-ins with the law. We brainstormed, he put together a track with Tony Dini, and I wrote a script and packaged a cast and crew and we went ahead and shot it.

Governor Walker, This Tape Would Make Richard Nixon Blush, You Should Resign

6:19 am in Government, Politics, Republican Party by twolf1

Wisconsin State Senator Tim Carpenter asks Gov. Walker to resign because of what was revealed on the fake Koch call:

Dear Governor Walker,

I am informed that a tape recording has been released in which you apparently held an extensive discussion with someone you believed to be your campaign supporter, David Koch. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel states that the caller was actually a reporter, pretending to be David Koch, and it has posted a transcript of the recording. It appears that you admit the call occurred, and have not contested the authenticity of transcript.

David Koch is the billionaire businessman who reportedly contributed thousands to your campaign and who the media claims is a key source of funding for shadowy political groups that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars attacking your political adversaries in our state.

At a historic moment in our State’s history, brought on by your refusal to compromise with elected officials regarding the elimination of worker’s rights, you still refuse to talk with Democratic legislators. However, you apparently have no problem taking a phone call from “Mr. Koch” and to:

•Discuss your strategy to lay off public workers to seek partisan advantage to pass your agenda;

•Discuss your plan to lure Democratic legislators to the Capitol on the pretext of negotiation, but then state that you would never actually negotiate;

•Discuss your plan to use the pretext of negotiation to get a quorum for legislative fiscal action that Republicans so far have not been able to do;

•Discuss that you considered the “planting” of paid troublemakers into the peaceful protests at our Capitol; and to

•Give your enthusiastic acceptance to an offer from “Koch” to fly you out on a vacation to show you a “good time” once you “crush these bastards.” Your response was “That would be outstanding…” Given that Koch’s businesses could reap vast rewards with the ‘no bid’ sale of the Wisconsin’s power plants that you propose in your budget repair bill, this response is severely troubling.

Governor Walker, this tape would make Richard Nixon blush. If the recording and the items discussed by you are indeed your plans, you have no business being in public office in our State, and should resign.

Sincerely,

Tim Carpenter

State Senator

Rick Santorum Attempts to Explain His Racist Comments

5:38 am in Politics, Republican Party by twolf1

Here’s Frothy Mix‘s™ explanation for racist comments he made during an interview on CNS News:

For decades certain human beings were wrongly treated as property and denied liberty in America because they were not considered persons under the constitution. Today other human beings, the unborn of all races, are also wrongly treated as property and denied the right to life for the same reason; because they are not considered persons under the constitution. I am disappointed that President Obama, who rightfully fights for civil rights, refuses to recognize the civil rights of the unborn in this country.

[Ed. note: Here's a good laugh to kick off your morning! Thanks, twolf1!]

Stephen Colbert eviscerates Newt Gingrich for his narcissistic hypocrisy.

Newt:

It doesn’t matter what I say. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.
