Let’s face it: for anyone who loves politics, the everyday back and forth can sometimes get a little monotonous. So it’s been nice to have memes and spoofs this election season – not only as a respite from the solemnity of the political day to day, but as a way to share laughs over politics with friends and co-workers. From a comedy stand point alone we’ve seen Memes, Tumblrs, and Twitter handles dedicated to political parodies (the collision of Arrested Development’s Lucille Bluth and Mitt Romney is a personal favorite, pictured below), plus the oldies-but-goodies from the satirical minds of Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and the cast of Saturday Night Live.
On Wednesday, The Cycle hosts took a break and chose to take a more whimsical approach. This trip to what Toure called “Awesome Corner” isn’t the first time the hosts
have chosen fantasy fun over what’s going on in the Real World. It’s like S.E. Cupp said on Tuesday: after covering politics for so long sometimes all a girl wants is “a long, slow, deep, soft, wet kiss that lasts for three days.”
Well, I’m not sure about the three days part, and the “wet” caveat may be a personal preference, but after so much seriousness, there needs to be some play. Check out the latest from Jimmy Fallon during his trip to Mr. Romney’s neighborhood and hear the Cyclist’s movie fantasies for Thursday night’s VP debate.
Spoiler Alert: no sloppy make out sessions in these fantasies (sorry?), but there is no shortage of whimsy, either.
