La. candidate gets the Wonkette treatment

by Walter Pierce

State Rep. Lenar Whitney, R-Houma, finds herself in crosshairs of the interwebs' snark central after she posted a ridiculous campaign video. A Sarah Palin wannabe' indeed!

Lenar Whitney wants to be the next representative of Louisiana's 6th Congressional District, and she's ripped a page from one of the "um, all of 'em, any of 'em that, um, have, have been in front of me over all these years" stuff that half-term Gov. Sarah Palin reads.

Whitney's campaign posted a nearly 5-minute video rippling with dramatic music, "GLOBAL WARMING IS A HOAX" - evidently no one has informed the poor woman that all caps is shouting on the Internet - in which she confidently and even coyly trots out a list of debunked claims to prove her point and plant her lips firmly on the ass of the GOP base voters.

From Wonkette:

This nice lady is Sarah Palin wannabe and Louisiana state Rep. Lenar Whitney, who would like to bring her special brand of smarts to the U.S. Congress. She has an exciting video in which she explains that Global Warming is not real, because Al Gore, who made the whole thing up himself, is a big lying doodyhead who hates the petroleum industry, which by the way Lenar Whitney just wants you to know is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful extraction and refining industry she's ever known in her life.

Also, Lenar Whitney is yet another conservative Republican who thinks that lifelong socialist George Orwell would totally love her a whole lot, since he once said "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." And she has some truth to lay on you: ever since Al Gore completely invented global warming in his movie that she cannot even name correctly, The [sic] Inconvenient Truth, Earth has not gotten warmer!!

Here's the video. It is real.
