Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Miles O’Tool – er, O’Keefe edition

Geez – I may have to take another hiatus – just woke up from a dream where I was attending a Congressional inquiry meeting, Tony Stark-style, except they were gonna take me out afterwards and shoot me.

A Steve-King-style wingnut was talking wingnut crap, and irritated me enough that I started riffing on him MST3K-style into my mike, and ended up unmasking him as an alien(a real extraterrestrial, not the kind Meg Whitman gets caught employing), yanking off the wig and sunshades on camera, and then vaporizing him with his own ray gun.

It got weird after that.

OK – you kind of know how the reactions in Freeperville were going to come down after “Fake Acorn pimp” got caught withhis wig and sunglasses off, but hey – knowing that Schwartzenegger/Stallone/Bruce Willis was going to win in the end never stopped me from going to a popcorn movie, so let’s suit up, enter the inner chamber, and yank the lids of a few barrels of Freeper Funnies!

I can almost picture the discussion in the Editorial inner sanctum over the wording of this headline (it changed several times over the course of the day)

Fake pimp from ACORN videos tries to ‘punk’ CNN correspondent
CNN ^ | Sept 29 2010 | Scott Zamost,

Posted on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 11:03:07 AM byworst-case scenario

Lusby, Maryland (CNN) — A conservative activist known for making undercover videos plotted to embarrass a CNN correspondent by recording a meeting on hidden cameras aboard a floating “palace of pleasure” and making sexually suggestive comments, e-mails and a planning document show.

James O’Keefe, best known for hitting the community organizing group ACORN with an undercover video sting, hoped to get CNN Investigative Correspondent Abbie Boudreau onto a boat filled with sexually explicit props and then record the session, those documents show.

The plan apparently was thwarted after Boudreau was warned minutes before it was supposed to happen.

“I never intended to become part of the story,” Boudreau said. “But things suddenly took a very strange turn.”

O’Keefe is best known for making a series of undercover videos inside ACORN offices around the country in 2009. The 40-year-old liberal group was crippled by scandal after O’Keefe and fellow activist Hannah Giles allegedly solicited advice from ACORN workers on setting up a brothel and evading taxes.


Put aside your natural dislike of CNN … and read this story. It’s hilarious!

What’s really the best part is O’Keefe’s written plans for this “CNN Caper.”

I hope Breitbart isn’t paying this guy too much money. What a maroon! He must have had beginner’s luck with the ACORN catch.

Have you seen the outrageous 1970s SuperFly pimp and hooker outfits those two wore? He wasn’t lucky, the ACORN workers were just unusually clueless.

I thought he was you guys’ knight in shining armour? And in case you didn’t notice it, he’s not just making a fool of himself. By proxy, he’s making a fool of every wingnut in Freeperville.
Next we have the deniers:

Don’t they have the whole thing on tape? And it’s still “allegedly.”

How many times was the word “allegedly” used in the “koran-in-the-toilet” story, or countless other media attack pieces targeted at conservatives?

This is an embarrassment to Conservative causes.

Is it possible that, all along, O’Keefe has beenattempting to embarrass conservatives?

O’Keefe needs to take a step back and re-think his approach to this work. He chalked up a nice hit his first time out of the box, but it has been downhill ever since. If he wants to have a “career” (who knows what the media will look like 10 years from now) in this business, he should concentrate on finding real wrong-doing as opposed to trying to create it out of whole cloth.

No idea what these asshats at CNN are alleging … but it seems little weird that they would devote all this, air time and all the other resources to say that there was a “plot” to try to seduce a CNN reporter. Why? What would that have proved?

That wingnuts are stupid and blinded by their own ideology?
They are getting pretty desperate over at the Communist News Network.

“almost highhandedly” … if you include Breitbart, several skillful tape editors, and the entire FNC apparatus.

I wonder if Fox will cover this fiasco – and how they will explain it.

Hey, FOX – you used to have this nincompoop on fourteen times a day. Wha hoppen? How did he suddenly become an unperson?

Maybe O’Keefe should just do a reality show on MTV, one the follows him around while he works out these brilliant schemes. Call it “O’Keefer Madness.”

Ah –Colbert to testify – Freepers to shit pants!‏
Stephen Colbert to testify before House immigration subcommittee Friday
Daily Caller ^ | September 22, 2010 | Jonathan Strong

Posted onWednesday, September 22, 2010 2:28:20 PM byLa Lydia

Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert is slated to testify at a congressional hearing Friday on immigration titled “Protecting America’s Harvest,” two sources have told The Daily Caller. One Republican source said Colbert will be testifying “in character,” the Bill O’Reilly-like muse Colbert uses for his show.

A Judiciary Committee spokeswoman, confirming Colbert would testify, said the hearing matter was a “serious issue . . . this is not a TV stunt.”

Some Republicans have already expressed unhappiness with Colbert witnessing at the hearing, thinking it would make light of a serious issue. The hearing is before the House Judiciary Committee’s immigration subcommittee…


NOT satire.

Rodriguez then touted the Take Our Jobs initiative. Of course, the illegal alien farm workers are making five to ten times what they could make in their home nation, and they don’t mean one word of this.And farm workers should be in a temporary worker program to begin with.
It’s just more convenient and cheaper (and ignored by our government) when all concerned pretend there are no pertinent laws.

This is a stupid ruse because if citizens did start replacing them, we’d probably have riot on our hands.

  1. Considering the present trajectory, I predict that in the next election cycle, we’ll have O’Keefe pulling more stunts. But rather than being stunts, the entire arrangement will be scripted with actors playing the evil dems.

  2. “Those dipcraps Colbert and Jon Stewart’s 15 minutes of fame should be up”
    I guess 15 Emmys doesn’t get you much these days. Has anyone ever won more of them than Jon?

  3. Griff Harsh, the husband of California gubernatorial candidate Nutneg Whitman, acknowledged in a statement on Thursday that “it is possible” he received and wrote notes on a letter from the Social Security Administration back in 2003, regarding the former housekeeper. The Whitman/ Harsh household then fired their housekeeper in June 2009 (after nine years of service), when Nutmeg handlers decided that she was an election liability.
    Meg, Meg, Meg, where do I start, you have reportedly spent $119 million of your own money to get elected Governor but you couldn’t use some of it to get your housekeeper (after nine years of service) some legal help to get her papers, and worse you lied about it. Wow, what a WITCH, of course I meant it with a “B”.

    But your comments on holding employers accountable for hiring undocumented workers real takes the cake, I assume you exempt yourself and your husband, or will you be turning yourself in.
    Meg on holding employers accountable:

    Meg you think you can buy the election, but what puzzles many is if you real cared and loved California then why not do your civic duty and vote, seems more rhetoric than anything else.
    In good times we might give you a try but not in our disaster mode that we find ourselves in after that so-called outsider Independent Republican, named Arnold Schwarzenegger (sold to us by radio personalities John and Ken), ruined our state, yah we will trust another one of you liars, think not. And another thing nine years this maid was in your house, in your house and you failed to learned this major thing about her, come on this sounds like a huge lie that no one can believe in.
    Ebay paid out $200,000 because Nutmeg assaulted an employee, so it’s not the first time she has mistreated an employee. Good luck winning Nutmeg, money will buy you admiration from the majority just from the Gay Old Party (GOP), but not from all of California.

  4. “freepidium”
    You forgot the space before the “d”. Also, there’s an extra “i” towards the end.
