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.”
