'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Explains James O'Keefe's 'Prank' On CNN

Last Wednesday, the world paused awkwardly to contemplate the bizarre and skeevy news that conservative agit-proprietor James O'Keefe attempted to lure CNN reporter Abbie Boudreau onto a "floating pleasure palace" to finally, uhh... prove something? To try to seduce the media, on a boat, with a jar of condoms and dildos? While it is true that very few people had ever attempted the mock seduction of CNN on a boat before, it looked for all the world to be the sort of stunt that defined its perpetrators more than its intended victim.

O'Keefe's fair-weather patron, Andrew Breitbart, was among the many people who felt that O'Keefe should explain himself. However, the following day, in a striking example of pop-culture kismet, the beloved FX comedy "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" answered the question, "Why would you lure some lady onto a boat?" with, "Because of the implication." So, if you want a peek inside the journalistic mind of James O'Keefe, look no further than the following clip:
