James O'Keefe is an idiot

Posted By on Wed, Jul 20, 2011 at 6:54 AM

Renegade right-wing undercover filmmaker James O'Keefe, who's had a disproportionate impact with his dishonestly edited and generally empty work, has descended into self-parody with his latest, Talking Points Memo reports.

In addition to this video, he has another in which purported Russian drug dealers talk to a human services worker about Medicaid for their father. Sounds bad at first blush. But it's meaningless. Among other flaws in this scenario, it doesn't matter how rich or criminal a person's kid is — that person is still entitled to Medicaid if poor enough. Stupid stuff.
