Video: Kanjorski gets testy when confronted about Dems’ Iraq deception

posted at 4:27 pm on June 11, 2008 by Allahpundit

Via Freedom’s Watch. First came the admission that their midterm posturing about stopping the war was nonsense; then came the credit-seeking celebration of that fact, as it was only the Democrats’ impotence that made the security gains of the surge possible; and now comes the obligatory, post-viral lament that he was taken out of context. He’s really on a roll, isn’t he? The hand on the camera lens is an especially nice touch.

I bet the DEMS are so proud of him. Grrr.

Probably truer than you think.

In the iPhone era, why “quote” someone when you can play the bloody video right in their face?

No more “taken out of context,” here’s you in living color, you pompous pinstriped weasel.

Next stop: Murtha.

You were being sarcastic, the problem is…they are proud of him, no one will denounce what he said or did.

Arrogant douchebag.

What else did you expect?

Kanjorski – District 11
Murtha – District 12

I was wondering if we’d ever get an update on this guy. Thanks HotAir!

The mayor of Hazelton PA Lou Barletta is running against this clown.

Might be a worthy cause to support.

Hey Kanjorski, put your helmet on because dollars to doughnuts some version of this will be the next political ad fired at your sorry butt.

Oh how I pray that Brit Hume picks this up for The Political Grapevine, by tomorrow if not today… and then O’Reilly takes it really mainstream. Evil SOBs. The only thing I’m curious about, though, is why it turns in to the Paris Hilton video at the end?

RightWinged on June 11, 2008 at 4:59 PM

Next stop: Murtha.

You bet! I just love seeing the veins bulge and Murtha slobbering all over himself.

This person is the poster-boy for corrupt politicians. He’s human bile as far as I am concerned.

Who is the woman in the video? Look how big her eyes get when he starts to quote the Senator. She doesn’t know whether to stand with him or back away.

Bicyea on June 11, 2008 at 5:03 PM

…I just can’t count the ways that I am so grateful for the new media.

Ok: TWENTY BILLION ways. Something along those lines.

He’s right too: Anyone who was an astute viewer of politics would know it was a bunch of horse hockey they were shoveling to their clueless electorate.

“We’ll end both the war and corruption! F&%k Bush!”

“…Ok not really. Thanks though!”

DAAAARRRRrrrrrrump!

Oy

Bicyea on June 11, 2008 at 5:03 PM

She’s a syncophant, hanging on to the coattails of someone powerful. She’s a nobody. But strangely enough, there’s a moment when the Senator looks to her, as if to say, “what’s going on here? I’m important, aren’t I?” It was priceless.

They are both part of a dying teetering system that is going the way of the dinosaur due to the new media.

JiangxiDad on June 11, 2008 at 5:15 PM

Crank.

He’s busted and he knows it.

I see many people now adopt this behavior when they are stone cold wrong and presented with the proof. They get indignant, aggressive, irrational and confrontational. They are afraid their power and privilege will be usurped.

So they throw a fit to avoid having to say they were wrong.

Ego and pride. Nasty things they are. Ego and pride.

It’s a sign of weakness and deep character flaw. He never should have been in the position of leadership or governance of people in the first place.

We need to have even closer scrutiny of our elected officials, especially the local ones. They should be required to display competence, leadership, and governance skills before they are allowed to run for office, much like any other job where the employer requires an applicant to take tests and exams to prove they can perform the functions of the job.

Might weed out some of them from the start. And save us from the childish displays we just watched in that video.

Saw it with Murtha and Reid et.al. VERY typical among Senators. I can barely stand any of those fake waxed dummies.

They warn us of an “imperial” Presidency. I’d say we have an “imperial” Senate. Out with the lot.

JiangxiDad on June 11, 2008 at 5:29 PM

Is this the same guy outed by Chris Wallace and Greg Jarrett this past weekend in their “Earmarks” report…I could be mistaken, but I think this is the guy who funnelled about $10 million to a family business that has just gone bankrupt, with no assets.

Blaise on June 11, 2008 at 5:35 PM

Comrade Democrats are going to have big problems in the 21st youtube century. It was fine when the drive-by parrot could make it so, but now the drive-by parrot can’t do much except feed the ignorant. As more people get their news online, the parrot will just roll over.

tarpon on June 11, 2008 at 5:37 PM

I love it, you quote them word for word, and they still deny they said it. I guess Clinton does have HIS legacy after all. I guess it’s better than a stained dress.

Everyone, minus the MSM tools, knew this was what they wanted. They are just too incompetent to get the job done.

I love seeing them get their rears handed to them on a plate.

I agree, that should be done. Unfortunately these guys would just slam the lid shut.

ORrighty on June 11, 2008 at 6:04 PM

That’s just one look into the Belly of the Beast that is our ‘government’. The old elitist twit should retire before he pops a blood vessel in his gray matter. But, he won’t.

That aide looks terrified, like the conservatives were going to assault her. Cowards all.

Christine on June 11, 2008 at 6:07 PM

It was satire

Wade on June 11, 2008 at 6:10 PM

What a dissapointing person. That quote was correct word for word.

Dr. Manhattan on June 11, 2008 at 6:21 PM

I’d go to the police, and see if I could get them to charge the guy with battery. Bet that’d make his day.

I think that ‘citizen’ journalists should start using hidden cameras and see if they can catch more absurdity when the politicians don’t realize that there is a camera filming the conversation.

He has to go, but the people of Wilkes Barre/Scranton are too GD stupid to do it. At least my Dem rep is not a dishonest piece of crap, he’s just a socialist. Oh yeah, that’s MUCH better, isn’t it?

RWLA on June 11, 2008 at 9:26 PM

His statement should be played on speakers outside the building as he comes and goes to work.

p40tiger on June 11, 2008 at 10:09 PM

I’d have all sorts of fun with this… First, I’d call the police and press charges for assault. Second, I’d make as many copies of this video as I could and deliver them to ever Republican Congressman and sympathetic Democratic Congressman I could find. Third, I’d take another few copies to every local news organization I could find.
Good work, buddy.

I was thinking the very same thing. Basically every phone out there, and certainly any smartphone, can EASILY play a video of this scumbag’s original speech to stuff a sock in his bold faced LIES.

Or maybe the old man needs to up his ginko biloba intake to help boost memory function.
