So what does it mean that one of the most powerful men in the Senate was spied on by this comically inept group?

The more baroque the story, the more a certain type of brain wants it to be true. What's the opposite of Occam's Razor? Glen Beck's genuine snakeoil hair tonic?

We really could use a Firearm Friday thread.  But I know, it's not time to talk about Firearm threads.  Too soon.

So a crazy outlying loner or small group did something shady and possibly illegal by recording others without their knowledge.  Here's the thing though.  When it's THIS guy:

www.taylormarsh.com

Conservatives trip over themselves to be the first to call him a hero.  When it's THIS group, though

patdollard.com

Democrats and liberals throw them under the bus.

But yeah, keep on telling us how both sides are bad.  I'm SURE you have some novel suggestions regarding who deserves our votes based on this revelation.
 
2013-04-12 11:47:21 AM
To be fair, if it's a false-flag operation it's still comically inept.  I'm pretty sure the bit where they started bragging about committing a felony put them in the "random asshat" category and unaffiliates them from the mainstream of either end of the spectrum for most people.

2013-04-12 11:53:10 AM
I never quite understand when it's legal or when it's illegal to tape someone. Does it depend on the state things are occurring in? Is there a different with video versus audio? I mean, that dude awhile back taped Romney with his 47% comment.... why was that okay? It was still a private fundraiser and he had no idea he was being taped.

It seems so inconsistent.

OTOH only one Carolina away, we actually had a false flag CANDIDATE for senate (Alvin Greene) so not sure I'd put it past Mitch

Yeah, what you said. Some mod/admin got pretty butthurt about this idea floating around in another thread.
How long did it take to find this article and link it up? Think of all the positive things you could have done with your time instead, subby.

It depends on the state. Many states require that all parties know they are being taped, but not all.
But even with that, I do not think it is a criminal offense.  Just, if you tape me without my knowledge, I can sue you.

This story was so much more fun when Evil McConnel the Dark Turtle Prince was plotting to smear the comely and eminently likable actress and home-state hero.

Then it had to get all illegal, Democratic blah, blah. Hey, let's do the "Is it a scandal yet" thing. Like Rock, nothing beats that.

The second does not invalidate the first. Both can be in the bad.

Do you ever get tired of making false equivalency arguments?  Do you wake up every day and think "Today, I am going to turn the internet on its head by making outrageous comparisons that in a normal world should never see the light of day, but TODAY, the entire internet will take heed of my miraculous discovery that if you compare apples to oranges, the orange might spontaneously become a f*cking apple if you squint at it long enought!"

Ashly needs to publicly state that not only is she no longer running in politics in KY but she is now leaving the state for....anywhere....really, just get the fark out of this shiat hole, wtf is wrong with you idiots?  Democrats need to leave all the red states, and salt the earth on their way out.

Part of it may be state to state, part of it is "reasonable expectation of privacy." If you're making a speech in a public forum, even in a two party consent state, you don't have much of a case if someone records it without your permission.  If someone records you in the bathroom in a single party consent state, you'd probably win.  This sounds like it was recorded by a third party where they had taken reasonable (but clearly not perfect) measures to protect privacy.  That being said, it was stupid to have this conversation at all, much less somewhere where it could be overheard.

I think the Times article on this (which was the subject of another thread) mentioned that it was probably recorded on their cell phone.

Honestly I hate engaging in conspiracy theories, but this is just too much for me. I can accept that these people are complete morons, but the timing, the way it rolled out, the way too confident declarations from McConnell about who was involved...I dunno.

I don't even particularly mind McConnell having his seat, he's pretty shiatty at his job.

McConnell is scared. This made him look like a bumbling fool to the people he represents= corporations. The voters don't care or else he wouldn't be in there to begin with, but people who give donations bribes will be a little leary of someone who is so lax that a guy with a cell phone can record him.
