cynical about stupidity

I'm not a member of SEIU and the more I hear about them, the less I'd want to be. Check out this email from their president, who sounds like he was just browsing Youtube and came across the video -- but neglects to chop off the bit where his web producer asks for his approval. One could read it either way, but Stern's words have a disingenuous feel.

subject Hey

{friend's name},

Check out this video. It's hard to believe they actually said those things.

Hi Andy -

We finished the "horror" video. If you're OK with how it looks, feel free to send it around.
