I’d Rather Watch TV with the Democrats.

Categorised as GENERAL.

For some reason (I have literally no idea why) someone decided to poll a bunch of American politicians to find out what their favourite TV shows were, and surprise surprise, the democrats have the better taste.

Being highly un-wordly I assumed that the democrat’s number one program of choice was an American adaptation of our nation’s prime student bait: Countdown, but it’s not. It’s a fairly liberal, unbiased look at the American news. Oh democrats, you’re so predictable, why couldn’t you have thrown in a curveball to get the world wondering…oh wait you have. Who would have thought that the world’s leading political party would rank ‘Kourtney & Khloe take Miami’ fourth in their votes? I can just imagine Joe Biden in the absolute throws of anticipation before every season; “OK, mojito? Check. Manny/Peddy kit? Check. Shrunken pug? Check. Foot bath? OHMIGOD OHMIGOD OHMIGOD….HONEY, WHERE’S MY FUCKING MEDITATIVE FOOT BATH?? KOURT & KHLO IS ABOUT TO START!!!” Other than that there’s not really anything else too surprising in there; they’ve got their stylish dramas, liberal sitcoms, and edgy serial killer shows down to a tee. My god I would love to watch an episode of 30 Rock with Obama.

‘I just can’t believe Scott would treat Kourtney like that”

As for you Republicans, where do I start? The Big Bang Theory, How I met Your Mother AND Two and a Half Men? What. The. Fuck. These are the people keeping those shows on television. I think we can put all our prejudices aside for the unnecessary amount of lives lost in war, the inherent racism and homophobia ingrained in the party’s attitudes, and the pro-life, anti stem-cell research nut-jobs, because we now know who it is that’s funding Charlie Sheen’s coke habit. Come on Republicans, give the poor guy a chance – he was doing real well until the 8th season was green-lighted, and look at him now, back to his old ‘locking women in hotel bathroom’ ways. I hope you all feel ashamed. The only redeeming show in there is Modern Family, which is great, but even that always ends in some sickly all American, ‘we’re just such a happy diverse family’ moment.

I actually kind of see why someone bothered doing this poll now; I’d love to see what David Cameron and Nick Clegg’s favourite TV shows are. My guess is Bargain Hunt and Babestation respectively.

Frank Correa.

Frank says he is 'documenting the present for the future's advantage.'


Kyle’s Comics: Afternoon Saunter & The Throws of Death.

My old flat-mate put a bird out of its misery with a rock once. It's a shame he didn't have a mace because it took a really long time.
