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,

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

Meghan McCain: Karl Rove is ‘Creepy’

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:
