WTF? "Treehouse O'Love?" Art Imitates Life... Again!

Today, Tom Tomorrow bases his toon upon the exploits of James O'Keefe, the Dumbo-agent provocateur. The fount of all knowledge on the Net tells us:

James O'Keefe

...In September 2010, news outlets described a failed attempt by O'Keefe to lure CNN correspondent Abbie Boudreau onto a boat "filled with sexually explicit props", where he planned to make suggestive comments and "seduce" the reporter while the encounter was recorded on hidden cameras.

O'Keefe's first big scam involved hidden camera videos which purported to expose wrongdoing by the community group ACORN. From the ACORN-caper, O'Keefe went on to impersonate a phone-company worker with the aim of installing a wiretap on Senator Mary Landrieu's (D-LA) phone lines. Most recently, O'Keefe launched his "love boat" scheme to compromise a CNN correspondent. Tom Tomorrow has taken note of this Dumbo dumbass and gives us another "Conservative Jones & Moonbat" adventure in today's "This Modern World." If this is (fair & balanced) contempt for Dumbo antics, so be it.
