Sunday Funnies: Taking on FreedomWorks

This week, Tommy Christopher at Mediaite shared this parody of FreedomWorks’ Matt Kibbe and the tea party movement:

If the character playing Kibbe sounds a little familiar, it’s because he’s the former voiceover artist who left a threatening voicemail with FreedomWorks resulting in him getting axed from GEICO.  (Happiest guy about this?  That “Could switching to GEICO really save you 15% or more” guy who looks like an extra from Mad Men.)

The joke is a bit of inside baseball – if you follow politics closely you recognize the takeoff of Kibbe’s signature ‘burns.  But it’s so clearly directed at FreedomWorks, that its limited appeal really doesn’t matter – this is nothing but an FU to FW.

It isn’t deserved, but at least it’s funny.
