Corrupt Attorney's General

There was so much good stuff in the Mitt Romney videos, that people are still going through them and finding new things. Here Lawrence O'Donnell focuses on one of the $50,000/plate attendees who asked a really dumb but telling question!

Check him out(& watch him coin the phrase "confederacy of dunces"):


  1. >>watch him coin the phrase "confederacy of dunces"<<

    No. Correction needed.

    A Confederacy of Dunces is the title of a book by John Kennedy Toolewhich was published posthumously in 1980. The author had committed suicide in 1969. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1981.

    Recommended reading.

    There were reports in May that yet another attempt to make a movie were under way. This time the star is to be Zach Galifianakis. Previous efforts have been somewhat star crossed.

    The film version of Dunces has failed to launch for almost 30 years. Harold Ramis originally planned to adapt the novel to film in 1982 before his intended star, John Belushi, passed away. The project has been bogged in difficulty since, with intended stars John Candy and Chris Farley passing away as well. Will Ferrell was set to develop and star in a Dunces film five years ago, before that attempt also got the ax.

  2. I stand corrected. Thank you! i had never heard that phrase before and loved it!

    1. Anyone with more than a passing interest in A Confederacy of Dunces and the story of how it was nearly lost when the author was should watch the documentary film available here.

  3. Lawrence has a great delivery when it comes to expressing they key points of his argument.

  4. With all fairness, the things that Nixon and his guys were doing were small potatoes compared to what the Executive Branch has been doing over the last 12 years, and I include Obama's.

    As a voter, I'd like to see a very low bar set for what it takes to get booted from office.
