Nice Time! Let's All Watch This Former U.S. Attorney Yelling At James O'Keefe!
There is not much to say about this lovely video of former US Attorney Jim Letten, the man who prosecuted O'Keefe for pretending to be a phone company worker to get into Mary Landrieu's office for nefarious reasons not quite known (though it was always suspected he intended to bug her phone) and to which O'Keefe pleaded guilty. Ignore O'Keefe's overwrought voiceover regarding how he is being "threatened" by Letten yelling "shut up" at him. And ignore his weak-sauce argument that he showed his driver's license at Landrieu's office, so pretending to be a phone company worker could not at all be fraud.
Instead, just watch our new hero, James Letten (now a dean at Tulane), as he calls James O'Keefe a "nasty little spud." And a "nasty little extremist nutjob." (James Letten was a Bush appointee, btw.) And a "nasty little hobbit." And scum, and an asshole. James Letten, you have a friend in your Wonket.
Oh, and then James O'Keefe got detained by Tulane's security, poor martyr James O'Keefe : ( haha just kidding, it was awesome.
