Paul Kanjorski (D, PA-11) and the Golden Rule.
(Via Camp of the Saints) He’s kind of alarmed that people might do unto him as Kanjorski did unto others*.
[Lou] Barletta said Kanjorski won’t hold town hall meetings because he is afraid of “nuts to hit me with a camera and ask stupid questions.”
“Kanjorski is the one who paid a man with a camera $10,000 to follow me and my family around for five months in 2008,” Barletta said. “Kanjorski’s campaign manager (Mitchell) admitted this in a Times Leader story in November 2008.”
Indeed, he did (more on that here). Aside from the fact that it’s not the people holding the cameras that are doing the hitting, it’s very interesting that Paul Kanjorski seems so affronted that he might actually be held accountable for his votes. Besides, the racist already freely spouts off on C-SPAN: why should he be so worried about video footage made by private citizens?
PS: Lou Barletta for Congress.
*Actually, that doesn’t really give the full emotional impact of what’s going through Kanjorki’s head right now . Let’s try again:
“PLEASE, NO! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAASSSSEEE DON’T DO TO ME WHAT I DID TO MY OPPONENT IN 2008! I DIDN’T MEAN TO GIVE NANCY PELOSI ALL THAT POWER! I WAS NEVER PART OF IT! DO IT TO HER, NOT TO ME! DO IT TO HER, NOT TO ME!”
Although that might need a touch more groveling. Long-time Democratic Congressman, you understand: no spine worth mentioning.
