A New Presidential Project (HOPE!) (CHANGE!)

I’m gonna be etch-a-sketching all the presidents and makin’ em permanent … all before the inauguration. When I’m done, you can even buy your favorite! Especially if your favorite is Tyler or Taylor or Harding or something.

If you’re interested in donating an etch-a-sketch (44’s an awful strain on my budget) drop me an email: alli.katz@gmail.com

Great Moments of Campaign History

I did 24 etch-a-sketches of some of my favorite campaign moments in 24 hours. Special thanks to Emily, Rajiv, D-Mac, Cassidy, Sarah, Sara, Eric, Rachel, Brian, Amy, Molly, A.C., Joel and everyone else ever for their help.

Check out all of the genius.

#1 Obama’s Race Speech
So what if he threw his white grandma under the bus – Obama’s address on race in America left us all with shivers running up and down our legs.

#2 Ol’ Joe
Joe is that asshole friend of your uncle’s that comes to barbeques, drinks all the beer, complains about Mexicans and taxes, and smiles smugly when you try to point out flaws in his arguments until you leave, slamming doors to fume on the front porch. No, he is literally that guy.

#3 *Wink* *Wink*
The most hilarious woman in New York has been getting a lot of love for her portrayal of Sarah Palin, but since all she really needs to do is repeat exactly what the VP candidate says, we should be complimenting her on 30 Rock instead.

#4 God Darn It
Obama hates white people or something because Rev. Wright said stuff that really wasn’t so incredibly nuts if you look at the history of oppression in our country, or compare it to say, Falwell saying Katrina was because of gays, but whatever. THROW HIM UNDER THE BUS WITH THE GRANDMA.

#5 Oh, Rendell, Murtha and McCain
Hey Racists! I hear you all live in Western Pennsylvania, and also that you’re real Americans. Great!

#6 A Picture’s Worth a Million Old People Jokes
Some people photograph well. Some people don’t. And other people bumble awkwardly off the debate stage and start gagging on their own spittle.

#7 Bristol’s Baby Bump
For a hot ten minutes, it looked like Palin had faked the pregnancy of her youngest, Trig, to cover up the pregnancy of her oldest girl, Bristol. But psych! It was impossible, as Bristol was already knocked up by the local hockey star/hooligan/red neck, Levi, who was promptly cleaned up (with a little help from a $150K wardrobe budget) and paraded around the RNC. Good to know the GOP is invigorating its ranks with young folks.

#8 Majestic Greek Revival Columns at the DNC
I thought Obama’s Denver stage was a little understated, myself.
