If you’re looking for a different perspective on the humorous side of American politics, you have to visit the video blog Red State Update. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s take on American politics is funny, but these two self-proclaimed rednecks give a beneath the Mason-Dixon line view on politics.
The featured commentators on the blog are Jonathan Shockley and Travis Harmon and their patriotic themed video blog takes on the political issues of the day. Surrounded by Budweiser and Jim Bean, they hilariously perpetuate negative stereotypes of southern whites. The closed-minded senior Jackie Boyles, played by Travis Harmon, is placed next to the young Dunlap, played by Jonathan Shockley, who dons a Lynyrd Skynyrd cap and either an American flag t-shirt or sweater. Their comedy pokes fun at the Republican Party, presidential politics, Obama and practically anything in the political arena.
I suggest anyone trying to gain knowledge on American politics visit this blog instead of MSNBC, CNN or FOX. This blog consciously analyzes the American political climate in ways that none of the major cable news networks do. It is a fair and balanced form of media (I know you’ve heard that before, but it really is). You would think that these two would only take aim at Obama or liberals but hearing these guys go on about Mitt Romeny’s books or Herman Cain’s 9-9-9 plan is beyond hysterical.
