>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.
