Keith Ellison (D, MN) lets out his inner Bluto Blutarsky.

I would like to note for the record: EVERY PERSON WHO DOES POLITICAL VIDEOS lives for this day. The day that a sitting politician announces in public that the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

Which is what Rep. Ellison did.

It was a lonely vigil, to be sure: but we had faith.  Faith that somebody, somewhere, currently in power would slip up and allow us to at last spotlight what has been one of the classic theoretical oopsies in political punditry.  We have long waited for a politician to be dumb enough to claim that the Nazis bombed Pearl Harbor, and finally – Finally!  – Rep. Ellison comes through for us.  I am almost proud of the man for his sacrifice.

But not quite.

    Allow me to make two quick predictions:
    1. Rep Ellison will claim that “he was misunderstood” and that he was discussing the Axis as a whole.
    2. You are racist and/or Islamaphobic for daring to insult him over this.

    Excellent, excellent. Anyone taking bets on the next Congressional* incidence of movie ignorance? My bet would be the ‘Haiti-ans’ line from Clueless.

    *I originally put ‘real-world’ here, but I’m honestly not sure if that applies to D.C. Politics anymore.

    Thats Senator Blutarsky, probably a great friend to Teddy.

    Ofcourse if Obama had said this, they would just change the history books and have Lucas re-edit Tora Tora Tora
