MRP Day 28 – Whedon endorses Romney

(Trigger warning for Dr Clam – pertains to US presidential election. Proceed with caution)

By now everyone has probably seen this short video of Joss Whedon endorsing Mitt Romney’s presidential candidacy, right? Celebrity endorsements are the cringeworthy lifeblood of modern politics – as opposed to, you know, actual policy – so it’s nice to see one that trades off the usual bland, affable positivity for articulate and compelling points.

It’s two minutes long. Just watch it.

I think there are three things to note about this:

1) when you’re a rich American, you can pretty much say whatever the fuck you want and get away with it, but it’s nicer for the rest of us if you can at least be funny and satirical while you are doing it;

2) Whedon does a pretty damn good job of nailing his routine in a single shot for someone who is not a professional performer; and

3) The kitchen is so clean and well-ordered that I can’t choose between ‘mesmerising’ and ‘unsettling’ as a descriptor.

  1. I couldn’t look away from the people wandering around outside. What are they doing? Do they know they’re PART OF HISTORY?

  2. I actually assumed they were being zombies. Or were about to get shot at for trespassing.
