Scott Walker: Honey Badger

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.

Scott Walker. Total bad ass.

Oh, also, Buzzfeed says I forced my way into the political conversation through Twitter. Which is pretty cool and pretty true.

Anyway. I’m working on another parody video that should be out shortly. Keep your eyes peeled.

Live Tweeting President Obama’s State of the Union Speech

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.

Anyway, enjoy:

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

Obama: bla bla bla bla this is the hardest presidency EVAH bla bla bla *fox letting teleprompter screens in the frame* bla bla Continue reading “Live Tweeting President Obama’s State of the Union Speech”

What Your Twitter Will Soon Look Like (and What Mine Looks Like Now)

Well my mother always told me I was special… and now there is proof! Behold my special Twitter List Beta awesomeness (click to enlarge):

Twitter Lists

Yup. I’m in a very exclusive beta for Twitter’s much talked about new feature lists. How exclusive you ask? Well… I have no idea actually but it seems pretty exclusive given that only 311 of the 3,867,501 who follow Ashton Kutcher have made a list that includes him (click to enlarge): Continue reading “What Your Twitter Will Soon Look Like (and What Mine Looks Like Now)”

Twitter Army Takes Over White House Press Corps; Then the World

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:

#cartoonmajor

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 Non-Story That is Karl Rove’s Thank You

Yes, as Tommy Christopher of AOL reported today, Karl Rove did send me a thank you on twitter yesterday.

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”

Meghan McCain: Karl Rove is ‘Creepy’

Meghan McCain

Meghan McCain is a twit.

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.

You see the main point of Meg’s latest work of genius is that some people following her on twitter are creepy, namely Karl Rove: Continue reading “Meghan McCain: Karl Rove is ‘Creepy’”

Introducing Required Daily Reading

book shelf

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:

Be sure to check back to this post periodically as I’ll be trying to update it as often as possible.
