In case any of you missed this the first time around… which might not be a lot of you considering it was on the front page of Yahoo and garnered over 120,000 views… here is the Scott Walker tribute video I made with some friends.
Well the last time I live tweeted an Obama speech people really seemed to enjoy it so I figured, why not, I’ll take on the State of the Union too. So here you go… all my tweets from last nights speech and from the Republican response given by Bob McDonnell. My point in bla bla translating the two speeches wasn’t necessarily that they were poorly delivered (and actually I think McDonnell did a pretty amazing job in his speech) but, rather, that, like nearly all modern political speeches, they are nearly meaningless rehashing of already known, and even decades old, talking points surrounded by overwhelming heaps of tired rhetorical tricks and lots of bla bla.
Obama: bla bla bla bla bla hey guys bla bla bla the constitution says I gotta bore you to death tonight
Obama: bla bla bla bla I inherited a mess just like the world wars bla bla *Biden head shake* bla bla bla
Obama: bla bla bla bla random small town reference bla bla bla wall street hates children bla bla
The day that the small twitter army dedicated to getting the White House press corps to put up South Park versions of themselves as their icon on Twitter has been working tirelessly towards is now one step closer. Yes, this post is the official proclamation of victory on the #cartoonmajor front of our campaign!
As of today Major Garret of Fox News is SouthParkified!
Here is his tweet of acceptance into the #TWoonhunks twitter army:
From this one small tweet grew an unstoppable movement that has now produced real change.
Where as we used to have but one SouthParkified White House reporter, Jake Tapper of ABC, we now have three. The second convert, who got caught up in the #cartoonmajor saga, is Asylum’s Tommy Christopher. The future is bright for our movement thus we cannot rest on our accomplishments and must continue to fight the good fight until there isn’t a White House press corps twitter icon left standing that hasn’t felt our touch. Onward I say! Onward!
Of course that call leads to the inevitable next question, now that Major Garret is on board who should be next?
The reason you didn’t hear about it here is that I wasn’t completely comfortable sharing it publicly because he sent the little thank you through a direct message on Twitter. Which means he may not have wanted it shared publicly. So, if I didn’t post it you may be asking “how did Tommy Christopher end up with it?”.
Well, despite what his post may imply, I met Tommy at CPAC and we talk from time to time. And when I got a direct message from Karl Rove, in my excitement, I told a couple people about it. Tommy was one of them.
In hindsight I probably should have made it completely clear that I was talking strictly off the record but I really didn’t, and still don’t, see the story here. But I guess it just goes to show that you should always be careful when talking to a journalist… and I wasn’t.
Now that Tommy has written his inane piece bashing Rove I suppose it’s my duty to defend Rove a little. Especially since this is such a stupid non-story. Plus… I get the added bonus of taking apart Tommy’s cheer leading for Megsy Mac and that’s always a blast. Continue reading “The Non-Story That is Karl Rove’s Thank You”
And I don’t mean that she uses twitter rather I mean that she is an imbecile. She does use twitter of course… though her latest post on The Daily Beast proves that she tweets the same way she blogs, cluelessly.
I thought I’d give you all a little more of the college life experience by introducing you to my latest recuring post: Required Daily Reading.
That way you can feel my pain… well, except not really because the stuff I’ll be giving you to read won’t be an absolute waste of time like the majority of my school reading. Either way, here’s my first installment:
The Twitter accounts of President-elect Barack Obama, CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, Britney Spears, Fox News and 29 others were hacked Monday according to the microblog site, leading to false and inappropriate messages being posted on their accounts.
