Finally, Redux: Obama gets the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Treatment

Courtesy of my colleagues at PJM/PJTV, Bill Whittle and Andrew Klavan, who goof, MST3K and Pop-Up Video style, on Tom Hanks’ palace guard narrative stylings. As the doggedly determined bete noire of Obama and his dinner choices Jim Treacher writes:

I didn’t watch that dreck when it came out last month, so thanks to Whittle & Klavan for giving me an excuse. Wow, that’s the most embarrassing thing Tom Hanks has done since The Man with One Red Shoe. (Shut up, I liked Joe Versus the Volcano.) Fifty years from now, people will look back and wonder how a guy as seemingly smart as Hanks could’ve been so credulous. If there are still any functioning computers by then. Or the electricity to run them.

California will likely lead the way in that regard, sad to say.
