Uh-oh, Joe gets campaign money from Phillip Morris

Remember the part in the video of Trent where he accuses me of being a lobbyist for Phillip Morris. Look what I found so far from the 2000 campaign cycle.

Hey Trent, you're becoming famous. Millions of people are watching you now.

Blogs all over the world are linking to your video. Even mine.

You're famous!

Is it true that you and Joe planned this and did this on purpose?

This is Joe Knollenbergs' Howard Dean moment.

The idea that the Congressman and Trent feel that behaving in the manner Trent did is just as acceptable as calling us "un-american". I wonder how Thaddeus will treat me in the near future. Hey, I will be covering all of this likely tonight over at www.ghostofwellstone.blogspot.com
