So not only did we have the borderline act of criminal trespass committed by Paul Ryan when he and his entourage barged into a soup kitchen to pretend to care about people – and in the process cleaning some pots and pans that were already clean – for a fraudulent photo op, but now we find out not only that Mitt the Flip’s fraudulent ‘relief effort’ yesterday diverted legitimate Red Cross resources away from New Jersey, et. al., but also that the entire spectacle was fake:
[T]he night before the event, campaign aides went to a local Wal Mart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned food, and diapers to put on display while they waited for donations to come in, according to one staffer. (The campaign confirmed that it “did donate supplies to the relief effort,” but would not specify how much it spent.)
Oh, but it gets better:
Distributing birther-inspired anti-Obama t-shirts at the “non-partisan” rally
That sound you definitely do not hear is Marie AnnToinette riding Rafalca through the ravaged areas of New Jersey to rescue people.
