IMAO Reader Theater: White House Press Conference

[High Praise! to Chris]

I don’t watch the White House daily briefing, so I can’t confirm that Jake Tapper actually asked Jay Carney these questions about the West Virginia primary, but it seems realistic enough.

IMAO Reader Theater: The Waffle Song

From Les of Brick Moon:

It’s completely my fault this didn’t get posted before Christmas, and I apologize for that.

Quite possibly Les’s best work to date. Brilliantly makes the point that yes, the Republican candidates are deeply flawed, but not nearly as flawed as the guy the Dems are putting up.

An awesome piece of work. Enjoy.

IMAO Reader Theater: The RadicAlphabet

From Les of Brick Moon:



[YouTube direct link]

Inspired, Les tells me, by the story of the OWS losers foisting commie children’s literature like “Tales for Little Rebels” on their kids.

As someone who knows the challenges of poetic satire, this one really impressed me – he managed to keep his rhythm & rhyme very consistent (as well as under the PG-13 mark), and there were some second lines where the rhyming word he used took me by surprise (in a good way). I love that. Also, he didn’t cheat on the X-word by using a word that begins with E (an all-too-common workaround used by lazy people).

Anyway, you should probably watch this now, so you can say you saw it before it went viral – which I rather suspect this has a good shot of doing, since it’s timely, topical, creative, and well-crafted.

From Hart of That Hero:

At the Academy Awards, I expect it to get nominated for “Best Use of the Word ‘Something'”.

By the way, if you actually live in Ohio and Senate Bill 5 affects you, or if you’re simply amused by crazed public-sector-union grandstanding, Hart’s got the low-down.

Thanks to JR Ralls for making this, who has a blog comparing the 1942 election with this year’s.

I hope when Frank J. becomes a dad that he shows a lot more sensitivity and understanding on this topic.

Because he IS going to hear these words at some point.
