The Parody of Politics

I think politics is excellent fodder for parody making, and so I laud Jib Jab for their sardonic brilliance. It just shows that the only way to take politics seriously is to recognize how ridiculous it can be. Humans are natural political animals, so the only way to stop us from acting on our preternatural instinct to kill, is by humbling ourselves with sarcasm and humiliation. Thank God this political campaign season has peaked America’s interest, it was about time we woke up in our feces to dig ourselves out. So power to the people, down with the establishment–a throwback to late 1960’s zeal.

So It’s Time For Some Campaign’n!

JibJab's 2008 Campaign'n

Anyone who remembers JibJab‘s hilarious rendition of the 2004 presidential election between Bush and Kerry will greatly appreciate the political subtleties exploited in this year’s campaign parody. We’re always told to be informed and politically active, maybe we can finally live up to those expectations, only I’m sure this isn’t what they had in mind.

Romney Interview: Being President Would Be “An Apprenticeship” For Obama

NMTV

Mitt Romney has seemingly disappeared off the campaign trail, but in an Interview hosted by Ahsley Martella on Newsmax.TV, Romney comes out in full support of John McCain while also suggesting that he may run again for the conservative nomination in 2012. As for Obama, he states that he has the most liberal voting record in the country and that his inexperience makes it look like he is running for the apprenticeship of the United States. Romney states that Barack Obama has done almost nothing in government and that Americans generally want a known commodity.

On the whole, I feel that Romney mellowed his commentary and took an acceptably conservative stance on immigration and offshore drilling. At the end of the clip, however, you can catch how Romney alludes to himself as the young and energetic candidate who could win the election in 2012 or 2016, which I thought was at least mildly tacky.

Hope you enjoy,

-Chris
