I just can't stop laughing.  What epitomizes the opposite of Indiana Jones--who's the bumbler extraordinaire?  The Three Stooges keep coming to mind.  What epitomizes a herd of stooges playing politics?  Meanwhile, I just can't stop laughing at Republicans in spy glasses.  Here's why.

The Republicans trained and unleashed a bunch of political spies using spy glasses to infiltrate Dem events and approach candidates.  And the unleashed bumbling geniuses bit themselves in the ass.  I just can't stop laughing.  You see, one of these stooges, in Michigan, left us a full memory card for posterity, complete with all their private comments (you really should turn off the camera when you go to the bathroom.)  And the Democratic Party of Michigan found it.  I just can't stop laughing.  

Now, Rachael Maddow has the complete card also:

The Michigan Democratic Party released a video complete with Pink Panther soundtrack ... one more reason I just can't stop laughing at the Republicans in spy glasses.

It gets serious below the fold.

Have any laws been violated?  Recording a person without their consent may be illegal.  So I did a search.

Michigan Wiretapping Law

Michigan law makes it a crime to "use[] any device to eavesdrop upon [a] conversation without the consent of all parties."  Mich. Comp. Laws § 750.539c.  ... an "all party consent" law ...  

Perhaps the bumbling Republicans in spy glasses aren't laughing.  Perhaps they are seeking private legal counsel, something the Republican instructors at the Black Bag University of Politics may have forgotten to discuss with their under-age-of-majority stooges.

Knowing the Republicans are a top down organization, I wonder who gave the orders to take young, innocent minors and teach them dirty tricks?  Not to mention WHEN?  How long has this been going on?  

Where has it been happening?  Nationwide?  Are they all bumblers?  Probably not, so I wouldn't expect them to all get caught.

How many memory cards of video have been collected?  Where are all those memory cards now?  How many bathroom visits is that?  I just can't stop laughing.  

Obviously, the Republican Party is still the Party of Nixon and his CIA political burglars.  Something tells me we won't be able to stop laughing again in November, especially if the Republicans are all running around in spy glasses instead of registering voters.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
