(Newser) – Jason Russell, co-founder of the controversial nonprofit Invisible Children and creator of the Kony 2012 viral video, gives his first interview Sunday since his bizarre naked meltdown on the streets of San Diego this past March. Oprah scored the big exchange, and Gawker's got its hands on a promo: "Did you go crazy?" Oprah asks. Russell, who appears calm (and dressed) in a shirt and tie, says, "That wasn't me, that person on the street corner ranting and raving and naked is not me, that's not who I am."

Was that willard Romney,flip flop flip flop, or a clone. How can Willard Romney be a Bishop of the mormon church when he lies more than a rug. If you do not like what willard Romney say's today, wait till tomorrow. If Willard was one tiny bit religious he would obey the ten commandments. Thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness,thou shalt not lie, thou shalt not be a greedy prick.

That WAS you, that person on the street corner ranting and raving and naked IS you. that's who you are. Blowing smoke doesn't make one a chimney. One can say anything they want, but that doesn't mean anyone else has to believe them. He's just another 'reality challenged' bullshipper.
