Irredeemable doofus James O’Keefe still thinks of himself as some kind of right-wing Sacha Baron Cohen-type genius prankster, but he’s *struggling* a little bit these days with subject matter. His latest SCOOP involves pouting about a dismissive email that a Columbia Journalism professor sent him with some swears in it, leading O’Keefe to try to get the dean of student affairs at the Columbia J-school to admit to “standing behind profanity-laced emails.” Instead, the dean, Sree Sreenivasan, and other people in the room just start to giggle at him.
O’Keefe makes a butthurt face and gets flustered when they start to record him asking his dim questions (WEIRD HOW THAT WORKS), and they ask him why he’s not in costume. “Oh, so you DO like curse words?” is about all he can muster.
From Sreenivasan’s post to Twitter after the exchange:
If you don’t recognize this guy, his best known appearance is as a pimp…. 11ish am today, James O’Keefe, the guy whose undercover videos did damage to ACORN and NPR, showed up at my office hours at Columbia Journalism School, camera rolling. He wanted to ask about his recent entanglements with my colleague Dale Maharidge (Google it) and to make other allegations. So halfway through, I started videotaping him on my iPhone. After he was done with me, I should have kept rolling, because they get to the exit and find they can’t open it. He says, “Have they locked us in?” Turns out they were pulling the door instead of pushing it.
