Not a lot to say. Mr. White Beard Jeremy Paxman gets undressed. The System get pwned. Russell Brand is one of the coolest English men alive.
There’s really no quips to write up. Just watch Alex Jones demonstrating something… angry. But mostly fearful of allowing other people to talk, it seems. Jones is clearly not aware of his appearance as I can’t understand why he’d harm his cause this way if he was.
Don’t miss part 2, where Alex resorts to using a fake English accent to racistly mock Piers’ English.
Perusing the polticalwebosphere (lets make that stick!) I’ve come upon so many “man pwns himself” style videos. Some of them are posted here. But I recently was sent a new one by a reader that was made before Romney’s debate and before he even really started campaigning. Mitt appears to have no problem defining the kind of man who will say anything to get elected and let flip flopping carry him as far as possible. Don’t worry about getting caught lying. If someone calls you on it you can lie about the lies. This used to be a tried, tested and true strategy in politics. However that was before the internet, alternative media and of course, political pwnage.
Here you have 20 straight minutes of Romney giving totally opposite accounts of what he ‘believes’… all from 6 months ago.
But wait! There’s more. So much more. This is why lying doesn’t work. It fuels your oppositions criticisms of you and they can make ads like this.
It empowers left leaning media programs to easily attack you like this:
And random people with time on their youtube hands make videos like this.
The reality is that Mitt Romney is in a battle with himself to fool the general public. If you believe him he is fighting it for everyone. But can you believe him? We try to be objective at Political Pwnage but it’s difficult when one man states totally opposite opinions on the most important issues the world faces and expects you to believe him.
Media and politics are forever intertwined. Why? Simply because journalists commit the actions of politicians to a record that is retained and can be viewed later. William Saletan from Slate Magazine fully understands how important a tool this can be. When considering one’s talking points in the present you can look to the past and piece together a timeline of events and ideas that provide veracity. Or, in this case, make your job very easy. Present Romney says something happened at a specific time so Saletan merely went to that time, found media of younger Romney talking about abortion, and let Mitt do his job for him.
