    He thought Media Matters was a CONSERVATIVE outfit!! LOL!

    I was wondering why he chose them!

    Dick Armey is anything but senile.

    He is pissed at FW and knew MM would put his story out there.

    He was on Matthews yesterday as well. It's great to hear straight from the horses mouth what those of us in sanity land already knew with the teabaggers being nothing but a front for the Koch's and other radical right wing extremists paying off Beck and Limbaugh to program their sheep to support them.

    I don't think he's senile. I'd hate to think he wouldn't know what media matters is, since any self-respecting righty on this site knows what it is. So I suspect he felt it was the best way to embarrass freedomworks. And it probably was.

    Then be denies knowledge and has plausible deniability

    Have we heard the last from Armey? I recall reading or hearing he was paid to leave FW's a substantial amount ($4 million?) and I suspect if such a payoff happened it came with a no disclosure agreement.
