Tripping the Light Fantastic

If this were a one-time ad, I'd just kind of laugh. 

But similar advertisements are appearing in Texas and Arizona towns (at the very least) as well. Alleged strong-holds of BLOTUS. 

Cincinnati is certainly the reddest of the large Ohio cities and even they are needing 'actors' to attend a frickin' BLOTUS rally. 

"Must be able to hold a sign, stand and cheer."

This is what we call a 'triple threat'.  

Kind of like Lola Heatherton....."she sings......she dances...and........she sings", or so says Sammy Maudlin. 

Clearly people of this caliber would have had to study under someone of the talent such as Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler......or perhaps even Pauley Shore or David Spade. 

Yes, make no mistake, I put Spade beneath the likes of Shore. 

Still, these 'actors' are pulling down more than the national minimum wage, though they do have to provide their own BLOTUS gear - which you know costs more than they can take home at the end of the play.  

It does surprise me that there are not enough idiots BLOTUS supporters out there who already have the costume, sans mask, who are willing to do this for free? 

I suppose they might be able to stand and cheer, but maybe not hold the sign? I'm guessing it might be like walking and chewing gum - near next to impossible. At least for these chumps. 

Honestly, I don't know what this says about BLOTUS level of support. Is it waning? Has it always been like this? Throes of desperations or just seat fillers? Future Covid victims?  If so, like $36 pre-tax doesn't even cover your first blood draw. 

This is a gig even Meryl Streep couldn't pull off. 

There has to be an easier way to make a living - maybe, Encino Man 2 ?

A campaign that begins hiring actors in Manhattan, fails hiring actors all over America! I like the sound of that. But they’re all bad actors!

Ah, Cincinnati, the city that prosecuted a little old lady for putting quarters in other people's parking meters. She was charged with interfering with a law enforcement officer in the performance of their duty, she was racing ahead of the meter maid putting quarters in expired parking meters.

LOLA HEATHERTON! That took me a minute. SCTV. Miss it so much. So glad we have $chitts Creek (now in syndication!). Oh, and the fact they have to hire actors to attend? Ummm... explains why the campaign is running out of money, huh? Dumb, dumb, dumb.....
