The teabaggers' man on horseback

This is hilarious.  A goofball who has apparently seen the preposterous film 300 a few times too many, but can't seem to get his own camera in focus, proclaims himself to be King Leonidas and calls for Obama's impeachment while sort-of-riding a pitifully-overburdened horse as bad country music plays (on a cheap tape deck inside a cardboard box, from the sound of it).  I think this was meant to be inspirational, but if the actual 300 Spartans at Thermopylae had been this out-of-shape, they'd have died of exhaustion a few minutes into the battle and Xerxes would have laughed his beard off.  Still, teabaggers seem to love goofy costumes and the recent nuclear deal has brought Iran back into their crosshairs, so maybe this guy will catch on.

The only thing that would have made it absolutely perfectly horrendous is if they'd managed to film him trying to re-mount the horse. I'm surprised they didn't need a crane...

Shaw: No problem -- this needs to go viral.

KanaW: How do you know they didn't need a crane? I suspect there was at least a stool or else a few guys to help heave his massive ass back onto the horse. Including that in the video would have looked (even more) ridiculous, to say nothing of possible animal-cruelty charges.

Infidel- "Impeach Obama" eh? ... Oh Well, I wonder who actually thinx that the President in this country no matter who can make any difference at this point? there are alot of people in Washington besides any President that control much more. But I'm not here to waste your time Sir, was just going through some of your old link ups and such and liked the Australian map of America. Interesting what Bernie Sanders sez though in the TPM piece about Social Security NOT being an "entitlement", even though were calling it that, it's technically not, and you can bet that is the biggest jackpot on the block right now, their coming after it ... bank on it ... but again ... I wrote plenty about that as well over the past.

Thanx for the links ....

Ranch: The President makes a lot of difference. It's impossible to look at the Bush years and think they would have been just the same with Gore as President. No Republican would have implemented the ACA (imperfect as it is) or appointed Kagan and Sotomayor.

Well, the way the Republican party is going, the guy in this video might be their ideal candidate for President in 2016.....
