Hanging Up 090 – Remedial Call Termination Procedures
Meet Jesse Lava, campaign director – campaign director – at Brave New Foundation: progressive, comedy savant, and first-time user of phones. If you’ve never heard of the man or the group, well, no surprise there. But they do exist, and they are hilarious.
Oh Jesse, you so crazy! They eat babies? YOU ARE A COMIC GENIUS! SOMEONE GET THIS MAN AN HBO SPECIAL RIGHT NOW!
The fake sincerity, the outburst of laughter releasing his obvious nervousness … you’d almost think it was a job interview or an audition or an 11 year old who just asked if your refrigerator was running. I’ll hand it to him, though; he did manage not to babble on about the Kochtopus or the Illuminati.
Tonight, Brave New Foundation is debuting a “documentary” titled Koch Brothers Exposed, which if the trailer is any indication, will consist in the main of accusations that the Kochs have lots of money, and that you should probably be upset about that. (George Soros could not be reached for comment.) You can read “sincere” Jesse discussing the premiere here. Just don’t bother trying to click on his link to the film, it doesn’t work. First day on the internet, too, one might assume.
The best part of the faux call above, for me at least, was the voice at the end suggesting they do a “second take” because “there was so much sirens? When you were talking?” Like, Oh. My. Gosh. For sure. As organized, bought-and-paid for fake grassroots harassment campaigns go, this one clearly needs a little more practice. I mean, if you’re going to be in the business of demonizing rich people for being involved in political causes, you might try starting out not being funded by Soros. Step two is to find people who know how to use things like, oh I don’t know, phones, the internet, English .. you know, starter tools.
By the way, if you’d like to fail to hang up on Brave New Foundation, you can reach them at 310-204-0448.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Marco Rubio has been hammered pretty hard since Saturday night about sounding “too robotic” to be a viable candidate. The basis for this accusation was his repetition of the idea that Barack Obama isn’t someone ignorant of what he’s doing to the country. He is maliciously doing exactly what he planned to do all along. He was called out | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES His supporters are going to say “no he didn’t, he just told you what someone else called him.” But that’s because those people are dishonest and think you are stupid. He called him a pussy, in as snidely and as “cute” a way as possible. And yes, just like his F-bomb from the weekend that he lied about, he | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES You know what they hate? Being called harpies. It’s sexist, you see, because you aren’t allowed to insult someone from a protected gender.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES While there’s no doubt that in a lot of ways, Obama is successful as a president in that he set out to reshape the country in his image and has succeeded in frightening ways, there have also been several examples Obama being a fairly incompetent leader who is prone to shoot himself and the country as a whole in the foot.
