That was pretty funny.

I'm not saying the Jefferson would have used those exact words, but I am pretty sure he would actually say the same thing.

Awesome!

He wants his slaves back?

Thomas Jefferson likes his coffee the way he likes his women: hand picked from a field.

I'm the exact opposite of the Tea Partiers he's ripping on, but it is painfully ironic to have a dude dressed up and speaking as Jefferson preaching at people to stop putting words in the mouth of the founding fathers.

To be clear - the message is good and right, but I don't know if that's the right way to deliver it.

That made me snort loud enough to wake up the entire office.

In the immortal words of Thomas Jefferson, "The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice."

They clearly aren't taking themselves seriously. The conservatives clearly are taking themselves seriously. This seems to be an appropriate approach.

Part of the joke (he looks at the camera then) and really he's 1000% more accurate than most talking heads on the news.

I red that as 'Thomas Jefferson is black'

shiat, I forgot all about the WInnebago Man. That was a long time ago, and the internet was a very different place.
 
2012-07-30 05:18:39 PM
Thought it was okay until the Tom Paine bit - made me spit up my coffee.

By the way, has anyone seen the Winnebago Man documentary? It's actually really interesting - very much recommended.

I read that as "Thomas Jefferson is black" and thought, 'the tea partiers are going to have convulsions".

I prefer Mr Jefferson in this video:

I'm Thomas Jefferson, and I'm pretty sure he meant what he said about putting words in his mouth.

Am I the only one that gets no entertainment from political humor? Politics is very sadly run, you can't make something like that funny

Finally got around to watching the video. It was better than I expected.

What about the "Separation of church and state?"

If you're doing a video pretending to be Thomas Jefferson complaining about misconceptions with the founding fathers, do some research. That isn't in the constitution. Anywhere. Not there. Didn't happen. Stop pretending it did. It's in a letter to church people who were afraid that the new government may endorse a particular branch of protestantism. That's it. Grow up.

To pretend to be TJ and claim that you can't be against gay marriage or abortion is so over the top as to make me think that he was being intentionally stupid for those who are actually paying attention. These guys didn't like the idea if unmarried men and women getting it on. To imply that they would be OK with two dudes getting it on or a woman killing a fetus in utero is ... well stupid.

It's not a slave, it's a choice.

I also like how the video continuous derides TEA partiers and others for falsely claiming that they could know where the founding fathers would have come down on modern issues and then flatly asserts that he and the other ffs would have supported two concepts that didn't exist publicly until a few decades ago.

Methinks thou dost protest too much. Regardless of whose idea it is, separation of church and state is one of the better ones.

Unless you count the Bill of Rights, and that whole "shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" bit. And you should count the Bill of Rights, since it's a group of things that are amendments to the constitution and therefore part of the document.

/Also, SMBC's Thomas Jefferson skit is better
