QuasiBigHo seeks sexy boat sanctuary!

Details are emerging of yet another bungled exploit by fake ACORN pimp James O’Keefe. O’Keefe attempted a preemptive strike at CNN reporter Abbie Boudreau, who was doing a piece on young conservatives. Suspecting that he would be trashed in the piece (since everybody knows conservatives are the most uniquely persecuted group on the planet), O’Keefe hatched a truly bizzare plot to turn the tables on the MSM.

A conservative activist known for making undercover videos plotted to embarrass a CNN correspondent by recording a meeting on hidden cameras aboard a floating “palace of pleasure” and making sexually suggestive comments, e-mails and a planning document show.

[snip]

According to the document, O’Keefe was to record a video of the following script before Boudreau arrived: “My name is James. I work in video activism and journalism. I’ve been approached by CNN for an interview where I know what their angle is: they want to portray me and my friends as crazies, as non-journalists, as unprofessional and likely as homophobes, racists or bigots of some sort….

“Instead, I’ve decided to have a little fun. Instead of giving her a serious interview, I’m going to punk CNN. Abbie has been trying to seduce me to use me, in order to spin a lie about me. So, I’m going to seduce her, on camera, to use her for a video. This bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who comes on at five will get a taste of her own medicine, she’ll get seduced on camera and you’ll get to see the awkwardness and the aftermath.

“Please sit back and enjoy the show.”

Alas, Boudreau declined to play Esmeralda to O’Keefe’s Quasimodo. It blew up in O’Keefe’s face rather spectacularly because the Executive Director of the conservative group funding O’Keefe’s hit pieces (Project Veritas) suddenly developed a conscience and warned the CNN reporter:

CNN later obtained a copy of a 13-page document titled “CNN Caper,” which appears to describe O’Keefe’s detailed plans for that day.

“The plans appeared so outlandish and so juvenile in tone, I questioned whether it was part of a second attempted punk,” Boudreau said.

But in a phone conversation, [Project Veritas Executive Director] Santa confirmed the document was authentic. Listed under “equipment needed,” is “hidden cams on the boat,” and a “tripod and overt recorder near the bed, an obvious sex tape machine.”

So it seems the phony, thoroughly discredited ACORN mash-up was the pinnacle of O’Keefe’s career. Good lord, what a pathetic douchenozzle.

The thing that I find most striking about this is the staggering misogyny of it all.  It really puts the ACORN stunt (child prostitution fantasies and all) in a much clearer light. 

Boudreau’s blog post (linked from CNN) is worth reading for the additional context of women struggling to be taken seriously in a male-dominated industry.

Which—again—is why making comparisons between “activism” and “whoring under the bleachers” aren’t all that helpful in creating respect.

The thing that I find most striking about this is the staggering misogyny of it all.

Apparently, the e-mails referred to the Emmy-winning Boudreau as a “bubble-headed bleach blonde,” along with criticisms of CNN for “using the inherent sexuality of these women to sell viewers and for ratings” and “passing up more esteemed and respectable journalists.” That becomes particularly amusing if you compare their CVs. Boudreau exposed corruption in FEMA; O’Keefe and co. manufactured a scandal that blew up in their faces. “Bubble-headed” indeed.

I’m also a bit stumped as to what this was supposed to do to CNN. How would this have harmed their reputation? Seems to me like all it would have done is strengthen O’Keefe’s reputation as a fabulist.

Also, does this gentleman not have a mirror? Why would anyone ever touch his half-inch wang unless they had a gun at their temples?

And sorry, but if O’Keefe has a problem with “bubble-headed bleach blondes” reading the news, perhaps he should reconsider appearing so often on Fox News. As John Stewart discovered, Fox requires its female correspondence to act like imbeciles as part of their contract.

There’s a lot more in the recovered e-mails. Additional plans were discussed, including a scheme to release doctored footage to reporters. There are also some hilarious details about their sex boat plan, such as advice on what music to play (“avoid Marvin Gaye as too cliche”), and sample one-liners (“I want to take you to a higher place, CNN must be a tough place to work, let’s make some headline love”).

It’s worth reading the whole thing. These people are morons if they thought this was actually going to work.

Sociopaths will be sociopaths…

Except for the boat part, I think this tape has already been made.

Did any of you see the brilliant tag on Tbogg, on the same topic? If not, I will save you the click: “HOIST ON OWN RETARD.” Brilliant. [H/T to John Cole over at Balloon Juice.]

Seriously, the things some Republican guys do to get laid.

I’m just guessing, but I kind of think O’Keefe considers non-consensual sex perfectly normal.  He hasn’t actually been charged with rape that I know of, but I wouldn’t be shocked if he were.

O’Keefe strikes me more as an afficionado of hookers. In fact, he reminds me of some of the men I worked with overseas who had girlfriends but still fooled around with prostitutes. One of these assholes all but told me that sex with hookers didn’t count as cheating.

Of course, he’d have to have a girlfriend first, and I’m guessing the ladies aren’t exactly lining up for him.

Goddamnit, he stole my list of “things to bring when meeting Oblomova.”

Seriously, the things some Republican guys do to get laid.

No shit.

(Actually, in Diaper Dave’s case, there might have been lots of shit. Zing!)

But don’t you dare characterize him as “unprofessional”.

This guy makes Breitbart look like I.F. Stone.

I went with “Surprise Boatsecks” myself.

That’ll Work:

I know what their angle is: they want to portray me and my friends as crazies, as non-journalists, as unprofessional and likely as homophobes, racists or bigots of some sort….

So I am going to lure their reporter to my lube and fuzzy-handcuff stocked dinghy, and embarrass them all!

He’s damn lucky his colleague squealed before he faced charges of sexual menacing.

I don’t know.  Have you guys seen the stable that conservative women have to pick from?  Old Asymmetrical Face is in the top 20% amongst such lookers as Jonah, Taranto, et al…

Baby Ben is probably the hottest one of them all and he’s saving himself for marriage.  What’s a horny Conservbo to do?

Goddamnit, he stole my list of “things to bring when meeting Oblomova.”

Len: Dwarves, lime jello, cheese cloth. But nothing kinky, dammit!

Just goes to show that when at any point your plan for political gain involves the phrase “dildo-covered poop deck” you tend to lose.

Isn’t OKeefe still on probation from the Landreu fiasco?

Note to self: Do not attempt to drink that well-earned beer while reading Rumproast Wingnut Secksytime Entrapment WTF Epic Fail comment threads.

It’s a waste of good ale.

I wonder how long it will take the GOP side of Congress to issue another letter of commendation to this proud warrior for freedom.

an obvious sex tape machine

WTF is that when it’s at home?

Does the tape keep thrusting in and out of the slot while the motor sighs and moans?

she’ll get seduced on camera

I do not think that word means what he thinks it means.

Len: Dwarves, lime jello, cheese cloth. But nothing kinky, dammit!

I thought the air compressor and torque wrench were a little over the top, but, you know…no complaints here.

Bad timing, though. A couple of days later and it could have been, “I’ve got your October surprise right here.”

I thought the air compressor and torque wrench were a little over the top, but, you know…no complaints here.

That’s for fixing the bed after I give her the best 30 seconds of her life.

Isn’t OKeefe still on probation from the Landreu fiasco?

Yes. Three years. I seriously doubt this stunt alone violates it but I doubt it will please his parole officer, either.

Ugh, this guy is one sick puppy, financed by some very rich sick fucks who know just how sick this kid is. And it’s not a problem with prostitutes, this guy has a problem with women in general; he not only stalks them, but has no concept of consent, and his goal is to humiliate and destroy. He even made his partner in crime dress like a cartoon ‘ho, even though they went to ACORN offices in regular clothes, no doubt to humiliate his friend for his own jollies.

At BJ, they say he wrote a script for how he thought the conversation would go - as if the woman would stay in that 10-year old’s version of a “sexytime” room one second after she got a look at it. I predict he’ll end up as a blurb in the local paper, a decade from now, found with a fridge full of body parts.

I took that as a reference to Paris Hilton.

@t4toby: Actually, the Artist Formerly Known as the Virgin Ben has been married for over a year. Oddly, getting laid hasn’t mellowed him out.

As to O’Keefe - I’ll grant you that he’s not hideous, but you’ve got to include the sleaziness factor. I bet he sweats cheap aftershave.

Hmmm. Apparently Andy B. is quite upset by any implications that he is any way associated with Mr. O’Keefe.

@owillis ‘@andrewbreitbart’s crew’? do you want to get sued for libel?

Does anyone else hear the pitter patter of flop sweat?

Maybe O’Keefe would be happier of bubble headed bleached blond talking point Oblivia du Hasbeens on FOX moved over to CNN opening a place on the bleached cleavage laden FOX couches for him

Lube, O’Keefe?  Really for such a little man like O’Keefe what a waste of an expense account receipt that Breitbart will be cutting a check for.  Where’d he learn about sex, 9mm dirty movies from the 50’s filmed in church basements?

O’Keefe and his cohorts apparently are of the ilk that believes ...if his scrawny hotness walks in the room, it’s foreplay. 

His mommy must have spent too much time telling him “women will be lucky to be with you” ignoring her duty to work on his inner beauty.

This has all the hallmarks of date rape. The unsuspecting woman, the motherfucking piece of shit man who thinks that any woman’s body is his for the taking and the fact that since he’s hit puberty the only women who will even deign to touch him are mommy and aunt Lucy, and both of them take heavy meds.

You just know this fuck is far too familiar with Rohypnol.

I’m confused. Why would anyone describe James O’Keefe as a crazy, unprofessional non-journalist?

He does get half a point for knowing some of the lyrics to Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry”, though.

I can’t wait to see what Olbermann and/or Maddow do with this.

To be perfectly honest, I was worried about this wet sack of dense suck and his band of merry scumbags for a while.  They hurt a lot of people with their ACORN takedown.  The Landrieu episode put smiles on a lot of faces, but I read it as showing they weren’t afraid break laws when they set their minds to a scam.

I feel soooo much better now.  These guys aren’t some new, conservative Monkey Wrench Gang: they’re just a squad of Tucker Maxes with a political agenda.

His P.O. should make sure Jimmy hasn’t gotten a fresh supply of GHB, though.

Agreed, Lowkey. Even though the ACORN thing was a thoroughly dishonest enterprise, it did manage to unfairly discredit an organization that was doing really important work. Score one for the bad guys. It is a relief to see that O’Keefe & Co. are far more apt to step on their own dicks in the future than replicate that “success.”

O’Keefe & Co. are far more apt to step on their own dicks

I don’t think he could talk his own foot into touching that thing.

I’m kinda assuming that the day is coming when O’Keefe goes gunning for a target that’s going to react not by calling the police or media, but by sticking him in an oil drum and dropping him in the East River…

O’Keefe & Co. are far more apt to step on their own dicks in the future than replicate that “success.”

Needledick O’Keefe couldn’t step on that thing if you cut off his legs and grafted his feet to his hips. And even then, as Gil Mann says ...

@gil:

POW! Hilarious.

O’Keefe & Co. are far more apt to step on their own dicks in the future than replicate that “success.”

Which is why Breitblart is repossessing all their stepladders.

Hmmm. Apparently Andy B. is quite upset by any implications that he is any way associated with Mr. O’Keefe.

And apparently threatening to sue anyone who makes the obvious connection. Bring it, turd boy.

What? Breitbart doesn’t remember being thisclose with his studly young MiniMe?

I CAN HAZ HIZTORY UNDO?:

jaycaruso   @owillis Huh? Where exactly has O’Keefe been hailed as a “journalism star” by conservatives? And don’t give me the 3-4 = all typical BS

Oh Andy, my Schadenfreude is killing you!

owillis   .@AndrewBreitbart the important question is - will you be submitting james’ name for pulitzer consideration *this* year?

Dwarves, lime jello, cheese cloth. But nothing kinky, dammit!

What?  Does that mean no trombone?

(sighs disconsolately)

Where exactly has O’Keefe been hailed as a “journalism star” by conservatives? And don’t give me the 3-4 = all typical BS

Well, there’s this mash note from 30+ Republican Congressmen.

“Honoring the fact-finding reporting done by Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III in their investigation in the fraudulent and illegal practices and misuse of taxpayer dollars by the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN).”

This was posted on Andy B’s Big BowelMovement on September 10, 2010. Bets on how long it stays up?

Big Government: What a Difference a Year Makes
by Mike Flynn

One year ago today, we launched BigGovernment.com. As you probably know, our first posts dealt with the video sting of ACORN, orchestrated by the new citizen journalists James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. It had an impact.

Is Breitbart really denying any connection to O’Keefe’s side show? Dude’s got a set on him. I don’t know why anyone bothers lying about their personal history these days - it’s as if there isn’t a camera or a spider program watching your every move.

@D Johnston:

I’ll give that rotten bastard Breitblart that much credit: he’s got absolutely no shame.  But balls?  If he had balls, he’d have his little protege’s back.  Perhaps my tastiest schadenfreude is watching Andy deny Jimmy three times.

Lie down with fuckers, eventually, you’ll wake up fucked.  There is some high level ironic justice here.

I agree with Cole, this is funny as hell, Great work!!!

A pleasure to see you, General! Isn’t it delicious that the colleague who tipped CNN is named Santa?

She’s been “relieved” of her duties. But not fired. Yet.

And to think, today is hump day!
