America Thanks The Tea Party? [video]

Actor, voice over artist and Tea Party gadfly, D.C. Douglas, released another video on Friday nght thanking the Tea Party for its contributions to the debt ceiling debate. Immediately upon it’s release, his video took on even greater meaning.

Though this video’s release occured at roughly the same time that Standard & Poor’s credit downgrade for the US became official – it was mere coincidence. Twitterverse, however, picked up on the video’s sentiment and began forwarding it to friends as way of expressing their less-than-warm-n-fuzzy feelings reagrding the Tea Party’s hand in the credit downgrade.

Apparently this was not without some merit. In S & P’s statement, they write “[T]he downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges to a degree more than we envisioned…”

In essence, Congressman John Boehner chose to move into the far right Tea Party’s territory rather than into the Republican mainstream. So, in effect, it seems even more fitting that America should Thank the Tea Party!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

D.C. Douglas Releases New Video Highlighting Sarah Palin’s Top 10 Tea Party Mamma Grizzlies

Los Angeles, CA September 21, 2010

D.C. Douglas, a veteran character actor and voice over artist, has produced another in a series of comedic political videos. “Sarah Palin’s Top 10 Tea Party Mamma Grizzlies” is a 4 minute voter’s guide to Sarah Palin’s mid-term Tea Party congress candidate picks.

“I find it best to put all your crazy tea bags into one pot so you can get a real taste of Sarah Palin’s political acumen,” says Mr. Douglas.

Mr. Douglas was thrust into the spotlight in April of this year when a tea party group, FreedomWorks, posted his private voicemail on an Andrew Breitbart website and called for his dismissal from performing voice over work on a new GEICO campaign. A month later, Mr. Douglas struck back with a Tea Party PSA that went viral and inspired thousands of people to look at FreedomWorks differently.

Since then, Mr. Douglas has released How To Comment On YouTube Videos (a cartoon mocking the responses to his first video), Matt Kibbe Pitches Dick (a mock ad for Dick Armey’s new book), and Burn A Quran Day, a controversial mock ad which also went viral last week.

>New Tea Party Parody Commercial: Dick Armey, Matt Kibbe and FreedomWorks Get Help From Gadfly Actor and Ex-Tea Party Victim D.C. Douglas

>

For Immediate Release:

Actor and voice over talent D.C. Douglas has, once again, offered to help the Tea Party movement with another video; a commercial for Dick Armey and Matt Kibbe’s book, “Give Us Liberty: A Tea Party Manifesto.”

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2010

D.C. Douglas, a veteran character actor and voice over artist, has offered to help Dick Armey and Matt Kibbe sell their new book, “Give Us Liberty: A Tea Party Manifesto,” by producing an internet commercial that Mr. Douglas feels captures the true essence of Matt Kibbe and the FreedomWorks modus operandi.

In April of this year, D.C. Douglas became a target of a FreedomWorks effort to get Mr. Douglas fired from his voice over job on a new GEICO campaign. He had upset Matt Kibbe with a sarcastic voicemail message he left on the FreedomWorks press line. Through hundreds of harassing phone calls, FreedomWorks prevailed and Mr. Douglas was replaced. Initially, Mr. Douglas was perturbed. But after some reflection and meditation, he realized he needed to help their movement – not fight it.

A month later, Mr. Douglas produced a Tea Party PSA that went viral and inspired thousands of people to look at FreedomWorks differently. He also gained over a thousand new fans and many other jobs in the process.

“After seeing Matt Kibbe trying to sell his master’s new book on Fox News recently, I kinda felt sorry for him,” Mr. Douglas confides. “Matt does actually think for himself sometimes, but he has no personality to speak of, really, to express himself. He sorta comes off like Igor asking you to donate your brain to his friend, Dr. Frankenstein. It’s a hard way to go through life. And he does seem kinda melancholy. So I decided to pitch in.”

Mr. Douglas took out time from his schedule to write and produce a spec commercial for Dick Armey, Matt Kibbe and FreedomWorks to promote their new book, “Give Us Liberty: A Tea Party Manifesto.” The commercial went live on August 25th.

“I know they probably won’t purchase it from me because they are fiscally responsible. Plus, they need to use most of their funds to step up their grassroots work for BP,” Mr. Douglas surmises. “But even my putting it on the interwebs for free is a small stepping stone to their stated goal of taking over the Republican Party in a hostile manner. And since they all have NRA memberships, I expect a huge shoot-out! I am so rooting for FreedomWorks!”

Mr. Douglas’ FreedomWorks commercial can be seen on YouTube and his personal blog: http://www.DCDouglasBlog.com.

Mr. Douglas can also be seen as the Captain of the Titanic II in the much anticipated and mocked B-movie, “Titanic II,” which was released on August 23rd.
