Salt Lake County Republicans have cravenly thrown ACORN pimp James O’Keefe under the bus following his arrest on federal charges of hanky-panky. These folks were going to have him deliver the keynote address at their annual Lincoln Day fundraiser, but now they have let a dumb little felony accusation get in the way! Maybe their replacement speaker can be Ted Stevens or Gordon Liddy or some other Republican who has gone that extra mile and become an officially convicted felon.
As of Tuesday night, the party’s Web site, slcogop.com, still advertised O’Keefe as the guest speaker for the Feb. 4 Lincoln Day Dinner. His topic was to be “his national exposé of ACORN’s unethical behavior, his changes in Congress and [how he will] inspire our Party’s passion for a grassroots comeback.”
Now the Salt Lake County GOP will have to settle for Newt Gingrich in a fake walrus mustache and a g-string, rolling around in a kiddie pool and singing “Comic Strip.”
