The Real Mad Men of Washington: it’s a Reality Show

Did you see the Emmys last night? Modern Family and Mad Men were the big winners. I think that’s a very good omen for the Wons. After all Modern Family is just like life around the Big White, only funny. And Mad Men is a show about, well, guys selling crap to people that they don’t need, don’t want and is probably useless. 

Ironically, there have recently been suggestions that, indeed, mad men were behind Big Guy’s winning his staring role back in 2008:

As the bad economic news continues to emanate from the United States — with a double-dip recession now all but certain — a reckoning is overdue. American journalism will have to look back at the period starting with Barrack [sic] Obama’s rise, his assumption of the presidency and his conduct in it to the present, and ask itself how it came to cast aside so many of its vital functions. In the main, the establishment American media abandoned its critical faculties during the Obama campaign — and it hasn’t reclaimed them since.

The premise being that a media cabal was responsible for the Wons arrival in the Big White to perform in the resulting reality show. Some are even looking to Ron Suskind’s bogus new book (more on that tomorrow) as proof that the show’s premise is actually realistic.

Back to the Emmys though; there was Charlie Sheen, former star of Two and a Half Men, handing out awards that he’s not likely to ever win again. His newly calm demeanor was a bit unsettling and even his appearance was butt a shadow of his former Warlock and Tiger Blood self:

Isn’t he starting to look more like Hal Holbrook than Charlie Sheen?

I think his handlers have Charlie on downers, hoping to make him appear normal again. Believe, me I know of which I speak.

Anyway, I was thinking, if former Vice President Al Gore can win an Oscar for his big screen narration of a fictional docu-drama about the death of our planet, why couldn’t Big Guy win an Emmy for his Teleprompter appearances where he narrates the death of our country?

Therefore, I would like to submit to next year’s selection committee my nomination for best actor In the role of the American President in a political drama:

I’m not a real leader, butt I play one in the situation room

Also, so no one will feel slighted, my Nomination for best supporting-actress in the role of FLOTUS in a political drama :

mo no

And what the heck, “best supporting actor in the role of Vice –President” too:



Oh wait! I just remembered this is actually a reality show. That qualifies the whole series for nomination in three categories: Political Drama,

Reality Show:

and the relatively new genre, Vampire, Zombie and Horror Show category:

Here’s a little inside scoop for you: Lady M wasn’t the only woman to be considered for the role of FLOTUS:

Snooki didn’t get the part because she was just an undergraduate at Harvard.

So be sure to turn into the next Emmy winning episode of The Real Mad Men of Washington this morning when Big Guy presents his fiscal plan to save the nation by launching class warfare by firing off the Buffet tax. Don’t worry if you can’t catch the show though: it’s actually a re-run.
