Congressman Goes Through Motions

Here is an absolutely astounding fundraising video from Rep. Peter King (R-NY). Greg Sargent notes King's half-assed delivery, but the whole thing is beyond amateur. The fact that the congressman is standing in front of a bar is an especially nice touch, because it wouldn't surprise me to learn that Pete had just stepped out for a quick smoke when an intern with a videocamera said, "Eh, let's just shoot this shit right now and then have a few more."

Rick Santorum told him to take the political shit outside, adding, "I'm tryin' to get laid over here!"

The whole thing stinks of low-grade coke and middle aged Long Island hookers. Anything for a vote.

"Vote With Your Liver"

He seems kinda chill. "Hey, come by, have some drinks, kick $50 into the kitty. I'll go beat up some libruls, and we'll call it a day – no big deal".

Compare and contrast with Chcuk Schumner: "Give me $10,000, so I can rewrite securities law, gut the SEC, deliver all of NYC to the Douchebags, and fuck you, the cab drivers, the dry cleaners, the property market, and pretty much the rest of the global economy in the process."

Honestly? I'd rather have a beer with King.

Good Clean Funds!

This sounds like a shakedown. The kind where they sweet talk you instead of letting on that they're a week away from shattering your knee caps on account of that money you owe the boss.

Surprisingly, no mention of Israel.

"One way or the other, if you want to be here, I'm sure we can find a way." Is that sweet or threatening?
