What the shit?
Courtesy of the Daily Beast:
This past week, Jason Spencer, a Republican state representative from Georgia, revealed that Sacha Baron Cohen had tricked him into shouting “provocative language” during what he thought was a real anti-terrorism training video. Now we know that “provocative language” was the N-word.
The shouting of racial slurs by Spencer, who was recently defeated in a GOP primary after serving four controversial terms, was just one of several unnerving moments from the most outrageous segment in the second episode of Showtime’s Who Is America? Week two of this news-making show also featured former Vice President Dick Cheney signing a “waterboard kit,” Ted Koppel arguing about the size of Donald Trump’s inauguration crowd and The Bachelor’s Corinne Olympios gamely pretending that she helped clean up the Ebola crisis in Africa.
Cohen presented himself as a “not a Massad agent” and tricked this Spencer dipshit into not only screaming the “N” word at the top of his lungs but to also run around with his pants down trying to ward off terrorists with his bare ass.
It was easily the most cringe-worthy thing I have seen since the LAST cringe-inducing episode of this show.
I really thought the highlight would be seeing Dick Cheney tricked into signing that “waterboard kit,” but I was wrong.
I really hate myself for watching this show, but now I can hardly wait to see the Sarah Palin segment, which is guaranteed to be the shit show of all shit shows.
Update: In news that should not surprise anybody there are now calls for this Spencer guy to resign.

Georgia House Speaker David Ralston (R) said in a statement that Spencer’s actions were “reprehensible,” according to the AJC.
“Representative Spencer has disgraced himself and should resign immediately,” Ralston said. “Georgia is better than this.”
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) said he was “saddened and disgusted” by Spencer’s behavior.
Yeah, I think we can stick a fork in this guy, he is done.
