These videos have got to be THE funniest interviews I’ve ever seen in my life, and trust me I’ve seen some good stuff (like the videos at Newsbusters). The video’s I’m speaking of involve Jason Mattera (of Hotair.com) going undercover as a left wing nut job and interviewing the protesters at the DNC in Denver. While its certainly true that simply watching left wing nut jobs talk about….. well.. anything… is hilarious in and of itself Jason manages to subtly but masterfully lampoon the geniuses right in front of them without them ever catching on!
Now, inevitably, you’re going to read this and say to yourself… ok CP (that means College Politico for all you newcomers out there) ridiculing far left nut jobs isn’t the hardest thing in the world to do… even right in front of them… even without them realizing you’re doing it. And, sure, you would be correct because, I mean, lets face it, these people are so detached from reality that a metal shovel to the face probably wouldn’t faze them.
However, what makes these videos exceedingly enjoyable and sets them apart from, say, Fox New’s coverage of the protesters is just how brilliantly Jason Mattera absolutely burns the protesters while simultaneously making them his friends. These videos are the undercover reporting equivalent to Ali’s famous rope-a-dope tactic. I was brought to near tears by the amazing performance Mattera put on and I cannot wait for more.
