Let Me Be Clear

In honor of their “Person of the Year”, TIME Mag created this supercut of Obama’s catch phrase, “let me make this clear.” Obama & Clinton’s simple approach to ‘splaining things have definitely worked in the Democrats favor this year.

But TIME wasn’t the first to get to this point. Here, the AP puts this soundbite into more context.

What do you think? A red flag signaling a tweetable one-liner to come or just rhetoric?


Guilt Trip the Vote

Ruth didn’t put up with shit (cancer, Scalia and Thomas) all these years for you to keep scrolling the internet today! Brave the long lines and vote!

Because at one time, not everyone could vote…

And because this woman had time to vote did while in labor en route to the ER. She’s having contractions and you can’t wait 30 minutes in line to vote? Gimme a break.


Romney Remixed

My remix friend Diran Lyons created this remix in September, 2012.

Then yesterday, I’m listening to a co-worker live-stream the Obama rally in Ohio and I hear Jay-Z anounce,

“I changed this one up, I have to do it, I’m sorry. I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one. I didn’t get clearance from the Secret Service so if they come tackle me y’all save me. I didn’t get that vetted, so let’s do that real fast before they come snatch me off this stage.”

Life imitates art. And I kinda liked art better.

Finally, if you’ve got 99 problems but Mitt isn’t one, than who is he?
