'Seinfeld' Actor Stars In Anti-GOP Video (Even the Left hates it)
Deadline Hollywood ^ | 3 Aug 07 | Nikki Finke

Posted on 08/13/2007 6:40:41 AM PDT by SkyPilot

Borrowing from Harry Potter, this video parody titled "Rovemort And The Sorcerer's Stonewall" and starring Jason Alexander was released today by the Campaign For America's Future. I wish I could say it was clever or fun, but it's so heavy-handed about Rush Limbaugh, Brit Hume, Trent Lott, Mitch McConnell, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Dubya that even a liberal like me finds it off-putting. (Surely Hollywood can help progressives put together more subtle and arresting footage than this!) The video is part of a national campaign to "expose the right's strategy of obstructing reform while attacking the 'do-nothing [Democrat-controlled] Congress'", timed to the YearlyKos conference in Chicago, and legislators on Capitol Hill preparing to return to their districts for the summer recess.

I guess this is where Jason Alexander ends up after failing multiple times to get something ‘beyond Seinfeld’.

Too bad there’s not board to interact with lefties -

I’d poke ‘em in the eye with THIS stick: “you aren’t ever going to ‘get’ Rove - he’s retiring, leaving on his OWN TERMS, this fall”.

Hmmm ... I didn’t realize that “George” was that kind of butt-wipe especially after all the non-PC stuff they pulled on the show.

I think most of these folks are the same as women who have sex for money. They do whatever they think will curry favor with those who can further (or in this case resuscitate) their careers. In fact, I think women who have sex for money may be more honest and straightforward.

Alexander jumped the shark years ago. If it weren’t for the occasional cameo on a Brad Paisley video, he would be completely irrelevant.

Even Duckman had a better career than Jason Alexander has had since “Seinfeld” closed its curtains.

Hollywood Liberals and Congressional Liberals should all go live on an island somewhere where they can start their own country based on them all living equally and fair and feeling good about themselves all the time. Might be a bit nasty since they’re all ego maniacs, power hungry, and generally corrupt. Would be an interesting experiment since each of them think they’re king and queen of the island.

Aaaah, the desperation. The last, usually ‘best’, bastion of actors/performers/musicians seeking to get back in the limelight, seeking another 15 minutes of fame - the vehement attack on the right. Yawn. But this one seems especially sad. I always thought Jason was funny, but now, just sad...

Surely, they can insert a more subliminal, covert message than this. They do it all day, every day on everything else on TV.

I watched this video. Though I'm sure they didn't mean it to be so, it was very funny. The Moonbats complain that we make fun of them and make them appear insane, but they do it to themselves.

Head-shrinkers are probably reaping the financial benefits of BDS, RDS and General Moonbat Syndrome.

Jason Alexander does not understand that the side he supports would throw him and his religion under the train at the earliest possible convenience.

No wonder his post sitcome Rush immitation sitcom failed.

Hollyweirds post sitcom life is real dead for those with hits. The “friends” shows are all gone and nobody has seen any of them. The limited succes that I have seen have been imitations of the same characters. (joey actor play joey)

Regardless these hollyweird types now have an itch to attack Rush.

Rats are cornered by the harmless fuzzball of truth?

BDS has taken over completely. The first sign is a total loss of sense of humor. Poor Jason - that's all the little toad had going for him.

Had the video been even remotely clever or funny, I could have at least chuckled and said, "good shot". These people are pathetic. What's even moreso is they believe this rot will be effective in winning hearts and minds that aren't already poisoned by hate to begin with. Ain't gonna happen.
