O’Keefe Not Sorry Yet

ACORN Ideas and Issues Personal Writings

0keffeNew Orleans We are finally pulling all of the pretense and fiction out of the Landrieu office bungling scandal. Andrew Breitbrat and his www.biggovernment.com site stopped pretending that James O’Keefe, bungler-in-charge, was not his boy, and realized that he needed to stop shouting and start ‘splaining. The result was a curious release on the biggov website.

Clown-on-the-nose boy, as Breitbrat has referred to the them now, offered a rationale that they were trying to establish that the phones weren’t being answered for health care complainers. This is weak tea. They would have done better videotaping some of the whiners trying to call in and either getting a response or not (of course if they had recorded the Senator’s office, they might have been in deep stuff on that one) or they might have not had much to look at on the video if the phone was answered, which is why they went out as bungle babies.

They still don’t get it though. Either Breitbrat or O’Keefe.

His quotes are classics.

“On reflection,” Mr. O’Keefe said, “I could have used a different approach to this investigation, particularly given the sensitivities that people understandably have about security in a federal building.”

Let me help show how this works, James. “Could” is a different word that “should,” as in “I should have used a different approach”…and so forth. This is not an apology for a massive mess-up. This is a vacillating gallon of spit being thrown on a raging forest fire.

Senator Landrieu was more caustic. She didn’t miss the fact that the little sniveler was still skating around. Her comment was essentially: tell it to your lawyer, the FBI, and the judge – and good luck, Chuck!

Dishing it out may mean learning how to take it, too, but in this case, these guys have wasted their 5 seconds of “fame,” so let’s go fry bigger fish and leave these minnows to their own piece of the swamp.

He’s been ordered back to his parents’ house. Maybe they can take another crack at teaching him how to say, “I’m sorry.”
