I honestly don’t know what to make of this, but here is a video of James O’Keefe dancing around in a construction outfit in a video entitled the Landrieu Dance:
I predict this will be an instant classic of the wingnut genre, rivaling even the Defeatocrat Cheer.
Putting aside the fact that this probably is why these guys just had to beg for 50k to pay their credit cards (and money well spent, donors!), what is the point of this? I really think DougJ was on to something:
Could it be that wingnuttia has blasted past “Bush is a genius” simplicity into some kind of inadvertent right-wing version of “Pale Fire”? This isn’t about the increasing complexity of wingnut mythology; the stuff about bear DNA and field mice makes some kind of logical sense if you look at it from the right perspective. Dijongate—along with a great deal of what happens on Glenn Beck—doesn’t make any sense. It isn’t clear to me that it’s even supposed to make sense.
It’s been said that it’s almost impossible to follow the real plot of a Raymond Chandler novel (famously, Chander himself was unable to account for one of the bodies in the “Big Sleep”), that the books work more on the level of conveying some vague, overriding sense of corruption and decay. Is wingnuttia moving away from simple easy-to-follow diatribes about Islamofascism and soc-ial-ism and towards more vague, inscrutable, doomy stuff? Or am I getting carried away here? I can’t help but feel that the whole texture of wingnuttia is starting to feel different these days. And that more generally, any kind of mythology eventually moves towards forms that cannot be understood on a literal level.
I really got nothing. Enjoy the video.
Also, can any of you graphic designers come up with a handy “Peak Wingnut Was A Lie” .gif? I have a feeling that as the 2012 elections approach, it will be very handy.
