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.
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.
