Dear DCCC; Video Hound and Youtube Bigot Goode for his "Macaca Moments" For Starters, as well as The Rest of the '08 Op

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   3 comments
The DCC should hire a "videohound" to use the strategies that worked so effectively to help take down Conrad Burns and George Allen on VA rep. Goode, the bigot. Actually, expect "videohounding," where incumbents and their likely opponents to become a routine, ordinary part of politics, and the Youtube phenomenon. The DCCC better get on it, because the RNC will surely have their team working on it. They learn fast. "If American Citizens hadn't Waked Up... There would Likely Have Been Many More Bigoted Congressmen Elected To Office" Of course, this is a reframing of the despicable quote, "If American Citizens DonĂ ‚¬ „ t Wake Up... There Will Likely Be Many More Muslims Elected To Office," stated by Republican Rep. Virgil Goode, of Virginia. Fortunately Americans did wake up and they voted out of office many legislators, who, like Goode, literally pander to the worst aspects of inhumanity, xenophobia, fear and bigotry in their constituents. It is clear that this is what Goode is doing. The fact is, new members of congress don't put their hand on any religious object. They are sworn in en masse, then, for photo ops, after the official swearing in, they may, if they chose, use a bible, Koran, Kama Sutra or corporate by-laws (perhaps most appropriate for the corporatists in the group.) It is clear that Goode has a solid understanding of the demographics of his district-- that he believes a majority of his constituents are happy to hear him spouting bigotted remarks and that they will bolster his image and reputation in his district. But congress can do something about this. As a group, they can censure him. They can send a message that using bigotry as a tool to build constituent loyalty is a despicable behavior unacceptable to the congress, to America. Here is an anti-goode youtube video that shows a whole lot of other ways that Goode is a loser on soooo many different issues. Goode is no genius. It is just about certain that he will, in the next two years, have plenty of "macaca" moments, some of which, will not be as finely framed and penned as this one. It would be smart of the DCCC to invest ten or twenty thousand dollars to pay a video hounder to follow Goode around at public talks, like the videographer who so successfully hounded John Tester's opponent, COnrad Burns. Then, every time he says something stupid or ugly-- zap it to Youtube so hundreds of thousands can see it. Make him the laughingstock and object of contempt of America. In his or her spare time, our videohound for Goode's VA district can play Borat and catch people in Goode's district manifesting the bigotry that so obviously exists there. Maybe, if the nation sees it, some of the ministers in the local churches will do something about it and wake these hating, neanderthal rednecks up. When they see they've been acting pretty pathetically, perhaps they'll wake up and realize what a loser Goode is, what a total shame and embarassment he is for their district. Actually, given the incredible low cost and high power of videohounding to catch Macaca moments and other kinds of embarassing moments, it would be malpractice for the strategists from every political party to fail to hire videohounds to dog incumbents and potential opponents in the 2008 races. This will surely become a routine aspect of the emerging political scene. It would not be surprising to see politicians in congress, or even at the state legislative level attempt to put a stop to this with laws banning some key aspect of it. I think it's healthy. It forces candidates to watch their guard everywhere they go. If they want to say something that will not go over well with other constituents, particularly the kind of bigot pandering Goode is doing, they will pay the youtube consequences, which generally involve the massive amplification of the video on the mainstream news media and in blogs. Youtube videohounding promises to be an up and coming line of work. If a congressional campaign costs a few million dollars, what is $20,000 to $50,000 spent paying a part time videohound to hunt for macaca and moron moments. Guys like Goode should make it as easy as shooting fish in a barrel.
