I didn’t think I would have a need or desire to write about (let alone work into a video) any more of my April Appletini Indiscretion™ (and the subsequent cyber outing, Fox News tarring and Blogosphere feathering). Really. I’m just fine with self-centered bragging about my random acting and voiceover accomplishments.
But with the end of the tumultuous midterms and financially suckie 2010, Jon Stewart’s Rally To Restore Sanity seemed to be the perfect ending chapter and escape for me. A cheeky way to purge any last remaining ghosts from April and to have a blast hanging out with 200,000 amusing and reasonable people.
And to be honest, one of my lingering ghosts was my Indiscretion™ being highlighted on The Daily Show. But in revisiting it, I now dig it. His joke at my expense (based on error riddled Washington Post and Fox News reports) was still funny and appropriate. Plus, the audience’s biggest response was to my Appletini Indiscretion™ — I certainly wasn’t alone in my feelings towards FreedomWorks. Albeit, my word choice was not the most “reasonable.”
So, I grabbed my camera, my woman and my cojones, and took off for Washington DC… Okay, so I didn’t grab my cojones, really. Sounded macho. Odds are, I did at one point, but probably to reposition them while flying coach. I’m very tall… also, my woman came willingly.
