It’s actually kind of funny in a way, but it’s (a) profanity-laced and (b) doesn’t make AFSCME look particularly bad.
I’m beginning to agree with Matt Yglesias that the only reason anyone thinks Cantor is smart is because of ethnic profiling.
Update: Ben reminds us that Cantor once said:
The use of obscenity…should not and cannot be tolerated. As a parent, I share the concerns of many regarding the level of offensive television and radio programs that are transmitted into our homes. The recent violations that have occurred disgusted not only me, but damage our society.
