I honestly can't understand why anyone would take O'Keefe or anyone he's associated with seriously after the crap these guys have been involved in. All I can figure is that O'Keefe suffers from paranoid delusions.


Fake pimp from ACORN videos tries to 'punk' CNN correspondent

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.

Pathetic. The far right is really driving off a cliff. The only question is whether enough Americans are lemmings enough to let the country go with it.

I have no earthly idea. Like I said, I really think O' Keefe suffers from some pretty serious delusions.

One thing I picked up on in what he had said in an email leads me to think that in his mind (and perhaps those who think like him) an attractive woman should never enter the workforce.  The woman he was trying to 'punk' isn't exactly a complete unknown, and not just a pretty face.  He implies that she only has the job because of her looks, and these days you have to have the ability to back it up to make it in tv news.

And it's been that way for a long time in most markets.

Hence my WTF moment - which I admit may be colored by being an accountant, which is a job where knowledge is much more important than looks.

Well CLEARLY it must be because she's pretty that she has the job - instead of a proper young man like HIM!  Right?

.... right?

Like I said, delusions.

But yeah. That doesn't seem to be that uncommon a belief with that group.

I think he's trying to become a professional troll.  I gotta admit, he has a gift for making these things funny.  The pimp hat he had for the ACORN troll was just brilliant.

Apparently I'm not the only one who sees this as an attack on women:
