Posted on 10/08/2010 1:19:26 AM PDT by unspun
What are you doing, October 14th? Would you like to be a "town hall meeting" shill for Barack Obama? According to this official casting notice in Nielsen's Backstage site, you still have time to apply and/or audition.
Here is the link to the live listing in the Backstage casting call.
Here are elements of screen shots, of this notice, taken betwen the hours of 1:00 and 2:00 am CT, today (10/8). We will pan out, as we go. You should be able to click twice, to enlarge the wider (and condensed) shots.
A bit bigger, for more context:
And bigger yet, to see the page's header:
After the last one he had, who could be surprised that they have decided to be more careful, for the next?
Not much need be reported, the pictures being worth their 1K words. It checks out, according to investigators looking in.
However, we will update at this page, in a few minutes. Perhaps they have specified the kinds of acting criteria they need: roles played in the past, live audience, etc.
No more intelligent, successful black women. Send in the clowns!
I hear Sanchez is available.
I didn’t have to wait long.
(PING List please note, this is a “FYI” ping only.)
He could play the part of the Drama Queen.
Maybe the Katrina looter guy can appear.
"Oh, Dear Lord and Savior, when you walk on water, do you do it barefoot or wearing sandals?"
The MSM liberal zealots resort to a suicide mission.
Would it not be wise to keep this covert?
The hard evidence is in. The “town hall” is a charade.
This has to be since Zer0 could not engage in a freestanding
This would be all over the media if the dastardly Karl Rove had hired actors for a George Bush town hall meeting. Same for the ubiquitous teleprompter that the Kenyan idiot chile uses. There would photos every day if George Bush used teleprompters the way 0boma does
Hi, there, young fella. I'm here to try out for a part in your show.
Category = Entertainment Jobs, Nonunion TV/Video, Reality TV & Documentary
Please ask your candidates and politicians The Three Sovereignty Now Questions.
Understand America's Problems, But You Want The Solution?.
He’s certain to get such a diverse range of political support from actors (from very positive to very, very positive) and of political knowledge and depth (from very shallow to very, very shallow) too!
can’t have any more black people saying they’re tired of defending him I guess ....
Everything about ZERO is make believe, fiction, a lie, a deceit, fraud.
History is being rewritten with regard to Bush Town Halls.
I read this article via the Drudge link. I read through the comments. The Kool-Aid drinkers are out in force essentially stating that Republicans did it, so it is ok and all the rest of us who are disgusted are....stupid zombies.
Having made it a habit to check comments at various news sites for several months now, there is an eerie similarity to all the pro-zerO comments: “The Republicans did it, too, and they are worse than Democrats so everyone needs reeducation.” I have begun to wonder if this is just one of those propaganda infiltrations into *news and opinion* that Cass Sunstein endorses.
If they are looking for an obnoxious heckler I could fit the bill.
We are talking MTV crowd. More like “Do you play Beer Pong?”
If you’re local, apply and pretend to be a good little O-bot. Then once you get in there, let him have it!
I’d do that if I was local but I’m about 500 miles north of DC.
thanks for ping. Can this man get more disgusting?
Did you see in the “Category” box is says: Entertainment Jobs, Non-Union TV/Video, Reality TV and Documentary...NON-UNION???? What a hypocrite.
How appropriate, we catch him arranging Kabuki theater for the masses.
“I have begun to wonder if this is just one of those propaganda infiltrations into *news and opinion* that Cass Sunstein endorses.”
Wonder no more. You nailed it.
When Joseph Goebbels arranged propaganda rallies for Hitler, at least they were visually interesting.
This stuff for king obuma is a slap-stick continuation of a really long and stupid clown show.
I would not be surprised if Obama just eliminates real people and instead uses CGI audiences for his political agendas.
I want the “YOU LIE” screamer / heckler role.
"Ooohhh, you plugged the hole, Obammy, but my hole still burns for you" softly cooed Miss March.
Too bad we can’t see the rest of the ad (you have to be a subscriber) — they are also asking for your issues — and if you don’t select the right ones, you won’t be in the audience.
And of course — in general, who reads Backstage, except out of work actors looking for a gig. I guess that is Obama’s preferred audience.
Ben Stein has the full ad in his article:
MTV screening Obama’s audience for views, looks
“Seeking - Audience Members: males & females, 18+.
To apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Town Hall” in the subject line. To ensure that the audience represents diverse interests and political views, include your name, phone number, hometown, school attending, your job and what issues, if any, you are interested in or passionate about. Also, provide a recent photo and short description of your political views. Submission deadline: Oct. 14. No pay.”
From Feb 9, 2009:
Obama’s Unscreened Town Hall Audience Is Clean Break From Bush’s Supporters-Only Public Events
And here is how the event is billed:
The President and the MTV Crowd
“The youth-oriented cable channel MTV and five of its sister channels will simulcast a town-hall-style meeting with President Obama on Thursday, Oct. 14.
The gathering, titled “A Conversation with President Obama,” appears to be modeled after Mr. Obama’s appearance on CNBC last month.”
I guess they casted the CNBC audience too...
You don’t want to get caught in the “Type Cast” trap.
Being able to faint on que is a positive. Nurses will be standing by (no doctors are available or wanted).
Is it possible that Rahm Emanuel was the voice of sanity in the administration, and now that he’s gone it’s Katy bar the door?
Great find. I just copied the link to my hometown socialist Obama-loving editor’s page.
Thanks for the ping.
WELL? what are we waiting for? :-D
