I think alot of people are in denial. It looks like the kid did a really stupid thing and now he's lost all the promising career he just launched so splendidly.
Olberman, as always, is an idiot, imagining some far-reaching Republican tentacles all over this thing.
With his ACORN work, O'Keefe had an outrageous idea and ran with it with spectacular results. But it now looks like it was a lucky shot in the dark. Apprarently, his idea for a follow up was boneheaded in the extreme. My guess is he'll wind up with probation and a record.
And the left can try and try, but his latest escapade does absolutely nothing to diminsh the crimes he exposed from ACORN. They're still a criminal outfit.
While what he did was extremely stupid, could it have been a set up? Do we know anything about the other three people involved?
