Weird. James O’Keefe, the conservative independent filmmaker who blew the lid off ACORN’s corruption with hidden cameras has been arrested in New Orleans for trying to wiretap the phones of Senator Mary Landrieu. Apparently, with the recent stardom he’s experienced in conservative/Tea Party circles, it went to his head and now he thinks he’s G. Gordon Liddy.
Granted, we don’t know the whole story yet, but it look bad and if true, he is rightfully headed to prison. Just stupid on every level. And why Landrieu? Other than being the highest paid prostitute in history, what secrets can she possibly hold?
Anywho, the voice of reason on all this is Michelle Malkin:
This is neither a time to joke nor a time to recklessly accuse Democrats/liberals of setting this up — nor a time to whine about media coverage double standards. Deal with what’s on the table.
Excellent point that everyone needs to take to heart. However, I will say it’s unfortunate that in the court of pop culture, the verdict will now be “ACORN was innocent!” when nothing could be further from the truth.
Just bizarre. It seems like every week there’s a story that knocks my socks off.
