I'm pretty sure they could re-cut this with actual footage of "conservative" voters and have it be pretty much the same.

Wow subby. You failed to mention you have to wait all the way until the end to get to the too on the nose Nascar joke.

Wow subby, just wow. I think I'll lift my spirits tonight and watch a film about a moderate candidate:

Bob Roberts

Wow. All but the name, for sure.

Did you misspell noose? You know, lose - loose, nose - noose. Very common error.

It wasn't funny in 1968. It wasn't funny in 1980. It wasn't funny 2000.

Well that settles it. We should move the Dem Party even farther to the right.
