It's hard out there for a pimp

You undoubtedly have by now heard about James O'Keefe, the "investigator" whose creatively edited videos of his "pimp" character (wearing his mom's chinchilla fur coat, no less!) interacting with poorly trained tax advisors were used to create furor against a voting rights and affordable housing outfit named ACORN, being arrested for a scheme to wire-tap Senator Mary Landrieu's office. Skippy the Bush Kangaroo has the best summary I've seen so far. And EBM has the best nickname for these morons: The Teabuggers. LOL.

Oh yeah -- his lawyer, Michael Madigan, was Howard Baker's lawyer during Watergate where Richard Nixon's "plumbers" tried to wire-tap the Democrat's headquarters in Washington. Republicans. Wire tapping. What is it with these cretins, anyhow, that makes them so prone to wanting to wire-tap every Democrat under the sun -- and so bad at it?!

UPDATE: James O'Keefe spent most of his time in the jailhouse restroom while waiting to be bailed out. No news on whether he tapped his toes a lot like most Republicans do in the restroom, and whether he had any other guys there with him to, you know, but I'm sure he just had a wide stance, yessiree. And he twittered, "The truth shall set me free." Well, that and a bail bond, anyhow.

UPDATE2: Apparently, reading the affidavit, the first rule of "plumbing operations" is to dress like The Village People. Wide stance. Just sayin' ;).

    It wouldn't be the first tearoom next to a cop shop.
