McCain Auditions for Angry Mob

“With just three weeks to go until Election Day, the McCain campaign has launched a nationwide talent search to find angry audience members for their increasingly hate-filled rallies,” reports America ’s satire king, Andy Borowitz. “In order to stock their rallies with the requisite number of irate white voters, the McCain camp has reached out to Hollywood, retaining the services of casting agent Tracy Klugian, who found the angry crowds for the 2000 film Gladiator.” When the public face of the Republican Party becomes that of Network’s Howard Beale, it takes a Borowitz to point out how ugly that is. With humor.
