Arceneaux is a local radio talker who has a one hour show Saturdays on AM 1070. Recently, she claimed she was going to be waterboarded, but then said nothing else about it. (Search through her website— there’s nothing there.) She’s also insinuated herself into the whole Tea Party thing.
Today, she’s got the most amazing commercial running on AM 1070 for the Tea Party in Houston. It goes something like this:
Son: Mom can I use the computer?
Mom: No, honey, I’m making fliers for the Tea Party.
Son: Can we go to the pool?
Mom: No honey, mommy’s busy.
Son: Can’t you take a vacation?
Mom: No, son. Mr. Obama took all our money.
Arceneaux voice over: Children are suffering in this economic crisis. Join us at the Houst Tea Party to protest . . . .
That not exactly word for word, but it is close. It’s not surprising, given what else you can hear on that station, but it’s pretty low to just outright lie like that.
I had thought about going down to the Tea Party to take pictures, but I decided that I didn’t want to get counted as part of the “10,000!!!11!11!” and it’s 100 degrees outside. Fuck that. I’ll just watch the local news.
