Check out some of the other ones, like Key & Peele: Obama on Halo 4. These dudes are hysterical.
My sister also sent me this little snippet from an article about negative politics awhile back and it made me laugh. Craig Ferguson ended up talking about this on his show the other night and I thought I’d dig it back out for you all. Politics has always been a cut throat business, hasn’t it?
1800 election: Having separated himself from Hamilton, Adams now turned to the task of trying to defeat Jefferson in the 1800 Presidential election. This quickly turned ugly. Adams supporters warned, (this is barely paraphrased!), that Thomas Jefferson was the U.S. head of an international radical conspiracy, the Bavarian Illuminati, whose secret program had two planks: First, to outlaw Christianity, burn bibles and make every church or synagogue a Jeffersonian Party headquarters. And second, to nationalize women, balancing the budget by drafting woman into brothels and making men pay a tax every time they wanted to have sex.
Jefferson was more aggressive. While Adams had minimal personal involvement in the election, Jefferson was deeply involved. The Jeffersonian attack on Adams was that he was only waiting to be re-elected to use the army to make himself King, and throw everyone who objected in jail under the Sedition Act, that Adams was busy trying to import English prostitutes to satisfy himself in the White House and marry off his son to a daughter of King George III.
Adams referred to Jefferson as "a mean-spirited, low-lived fellow, the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father." And Jefferson referred to Adams as having "a hideous hermaphroditical character, which has neither the force nor firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman . . .”
And for those of you outside of Michigan who watched that hysterical West Wing video, I thought I would let you know that Bridget Mary McCormack won her seat on the bench. And now I don’t have to think about politics again for at least a year, right?
