Harlan McCraney, Presidential Speechalist


I think my all-time most popular post is the one which promoted Will Ferrell’s parody of ranch hand George Bush (Will Ferrell “Pasturizes” Bush – link).  I thought the spot (created by now-dormant voter registration group American’s Coming Together) was the best piece of satire from the last presidential election.

This recent Harlan McCraney piece — featuring comedian Andy Dick — covers some well worn ground (Bush’s abuse of the English language).  Still, it does so with a combination of flair, corn and production value that cracked me up.  Dick really makes it work.
