A most excellent parody of Hugh Hewitt:
Here’s the objective measure: When was the last time that Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Medved, Fred Barnes, Charles Krauthammer and me all focused on the same subject and all agreed on the merits? It is literally impossible to imagine a more wildly diversified group of 50-something Republican pundits. Even in our most agreeable moments we are endlessly roiled in rancorous disagreements on everything, from the NFL replay rule to the merits of the Four-In-Hand versus the Windsor knot, yet here we spoke with one unanimous, harmonious voice:
Rush Limbaugh: “Pretty good speech. I think it will help him.”
Sean Hannity: “I didn’t see it myself, but Lee Greenwood told me it was nice.”
Michael Medved: “I think it probably helps Romney with Evangelicals.”
Fred Barnes: “I’d venture Romney will probably pick up 2 to 4 points in the next Iowa poll.”
Charles Krauthammer: “He certainly didn’t hurt himself.”
Me: “As the magnificence of His words burst forth, I fell to my very knees and wept with utter overwhelming joy; not just for me, but for the entire human race.”
That’s about as reasonable and convincing as any argument I’ve heard yet for supporting Mitt Romney. He’s tall! He has executive hair! He is opposed to murdering children, at least, he is today! And he wears some seriously awesome underoos!
Actually, I would think much better of Romney if he simply admitted to wearing Joseph’s Secret, and said “Look, we all believe in something halfway crazy, this just happens to be my particular idiom. At least it’s men’s underwear, you know it could be a lot worse.”
We thank the Good Fraters for bringing this special moment in political history to our attention.
