"having or showing feelings of unwarranted importance out of overbearing pride"

"When men are most sure and arrogant they are commonly most mistaken, giving views to passion without that proper deliberation which alone can secure them from the grossest absurdities” - David Hume

Above is pictured James O'Keefe, the mild, (not) mannered, (not) guerrilla "journalist." He is famous for his sting operations, in the service of the right-wing radio types, exposing problems at Planned Parenthood and ACORN. Apparently, the problems with the aforementioned organizations are that they have employed some really stupid people. I mean, the pimp outfit? Really, anonymous ACORN employees? Some guy walks in your office in a white, suburban, pimp Halloween costume, and you don't wet your pants laughing? Looks like he got it at Spencer's gifts. Right next to the "Hillbilly" and "Drug Dealer" costumes. Only thing he's missing is blackface.

But, the ACORN debacle is old-news. The PP and ACORN scams brought him atta boys from his evil overlords, and eager to duplicate his success, he took on a new project: go to a Congresswoman's office and try to catch them doing something embarrassing on tape. And he was arrested for "entering federal property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony." At least a couple of his cohorts were wearing their "Repairman" costumes. (What, you never dressed up as a Sears repairman for Halloween? I did. The next year I was a Meter Reader. Good times, good times.)

Facing ten years in prison has not dimmed the light that is James O'Keefe. No sir. He does admit that he "could have used a different approach to this investigation, particularly given the sensitivities that people understandably have about security in a federal building." You think, you witless puppet?

Keep tuned, though. I've heard a rumor that his next target is MSNBC. He's going to get an "Ultra-liberal, Feminist, Brainiac, Butch Lesbian" costume and infiltrate. Oh, wait.
