New Crowder: Where’s my stimulus money?

posted at 6:19 pm on July 31, 2009 by Allahpundit

I can’t decide if this is more like an “In Search Of…” episode, where Nimoy would inevitably fail to find the mythical beast he was seeking, or a Keynesian-flavored homage to “National Lampoon’s Vacation” with a little bit of “Gerry” — which was surprisingly good, for what it’s worth — tossed in.

The only thing I’m sure of is that that scene in the desert is a little … uncomfortable, IYKWIMAITYD.

give him his stimulus $$$ so he can get a frakkin’ haircut.

Dog Park? Quiet Zone? This could be expanded on.

This is sort of OT, but today Bloomberg said:

The first 12 months of the U.S. recession saw the economy shrink more than twice as much as previously estimated, reflecting even bigger declines in consumer spending and housing, revised figures showed.

The world’s largest economy contracted 1.9 percent from the fourth quarter of 2007 to the last three months of 2008, compared with the 0.8 percent drop previously on the books, the Commerce Department said today in Washington.

Of course they also said that the current decline was not as bad as they thought they would be…but then they said that these figures would have to be revised.

I wonder if the whole thing about the economy stabilizing etc is just smoke and mirrors and in a month or so we will hear they revised the numbers for the first quarter down again.

I have to admit. I don’t trust a lot of this stuff.

Terrye on July 31, 2009 at 6:36 PM

That’s about 11 minutes and 11 seconds too long.

Agree. I’m a fan of Crowder but this could have had less slapstick and more pointed sarcasm.

i liked the were bad republican skit with zo much better.

SHARPTOOTH on July 31, 2009 at 6:42 PM

I remember when at the time of the stimulus, so many idiots actually believed they were going to be getting a check in the mail.

The only thing I’m sure of is that that scene in the desert is a little … uncomfortable, IYKWIMAITYD.

Equally disturbing is the fact that I immediately knew what “IYKWIMAITYD” meant, even though I don’t think I’ve ever seen any part of it before, and I despise internet acronym/text speak.

I don’t understand Allah’s discomfort with the desert, maybe it’s a guy thing, but it was a waste of time that could have been used to flesh out some of that list at the end.

Cindy Munford on July 31, 2009 at 6:46 PM

My husband’s a veteran, he got a notice in the mail months ago he was getting a one time stimulus check for $250.00 did he nope- have not seen it. It’s not like he cares because they will get it back the next time we pay taxes, but why did they bother to send a notice out and not send the check? Or is someone scamming the system and the Federal Government has no fraud to over see disbursement? I mean they sent checks out to dead people after all.

Dr Evil on July 31, 2009 at 6:48 PM

Crowder just wanted to take off his shirt.

It’s too bad the GOP hypocrites are guilty of the same sort of porktastic waste, or they could highlight the Democrat penchant for “makin’ it rain” on the proverbial “political skeezy.”

TMK on July 31, 2009 at 6:53 PM

Crowder: Trying to be the Matthew McConaughy of the conservative blogosphere?

terryannonline on July 31, 2009 at 6:53 PM

TMK on July 31, 2009 at 6:53 PM

If they could use the sheer volume and waste along with a very contrite apology for past sins they might still gets some mileage out of this. The important thing is that if we ever get the Republicans in the majority of Congress, we better be as diligent in our oversight. I didn’t start screaming about money until TARP.

Cindy Munford on July 31, 2009 at 7:02 PM

I bet Allah liked this more than The Hangover.

Compared to the people running things now the Republicans were downright stingy.

Terrye on July 31, 2009 at 7:23 PM

He was more interesting before he moved to PJTV. This video is just long boring and pointless. Have to say it, that was 11 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. Guess he was just a “flash in the pan” and couldn’t go the distance.

Tommy_G on July 31, 2009 at 7:25 PM

Suddenly I have this image of Mr Magoo stooped and squinting over his keyboard yelling, “Whippersnapper!”

2 half naked guys rolling around in the desert? Count me in.

Terrye on July 31, 2009 at 7:23 PM

Perspective in all things, naturally, but the “Yeah well, he’s worser!” argument rarely convinces anyone to let guilty offenders off the hook, and eventually leads to the “You both stink.” shoulder shrug.

Tommy_G on July 31, 2009 at 7:25 PM

I would say he’s doing different stuff at PJTV, not necessarily more interesting. I thought the Canadian health care was interesting.

terryannonline on July 31, 2009 at 7:37 PM

So I am listening to Hugh Hewitt right now. Rep. John Campbell is on saying that all the members got letters telling them what stimulus projects are going on in their districts. Rep. Campbell said that the first on his list is 2.5 million dollars to make green a government building that is scheduled to be razed.

Cindy Munford on July 31, 2009 at 7:53 PM

Things I learned from this video.

1. Money now, work later, maybe

2. Disney will own Crowder once they see hear this.

3. Terryann likes man nipples

MirCat on July 31, 2009 at 7:58 PM

Ya, it was a little to splap sticky. I expect more for my 5 bucks.

Okay, in all honesty it was ok but for it being 11 minutes long it could have had a little more info.

boomer on July 31, 2009 at 8:02 PM

LOL….I know friend who used to work on those shows. Some of the stories she’s told me are hilarious.

The only thing I’m sure of is that that scene in the desert is a little … uncomfortable…

It was just an excuse for Crowder to work without a shirt.

I expect we’ll see a topless version from Zo any day now.

I live in Austin and Crowder forgot the Frisbee golf course. Not that we don’t already have Frisbee golf courses already. Now THATS what I call stimulus!

Wow. GTFO. *points to the door that presumably exits HotAir*

I love Steven and his and his boingalicious hair.

Not too bad. Although I could just smack him @2:15ish.

“Getting there is half the fun, compare it with me.” Fail.

Me, too. Funny how that works.

redwhiteblue on August 1, 2009 at 12:58 AM

Crowder, I luv ya, man; but a little advice:

YOUR STUFF IS WAAAAY TOO LONG!!

Anything over 4 minutes is unnecessary and self-fulfilling on your part.

michaelo on August 1, 2009 at 3:25 AM

Kinda lame. Where’s ‘Zo?!

iamse7en on July 31, 2009 at 11:04 PM

Should of brought Zo along for his “perspective.”

Jeff from WI on August 1, 2009 at 5:41 AM

I immediately knew what “IYKWIMAITYD” meant, …

I think I understand up until the “ITYD”. So I have no idea what you mean about “ill tempered yellow donkeys” or “irritatingly tedious Yiddish divorcee’s”.

Is it “I’ll talk you dead”?
“Income tax yearly deduction”?

I know! “I’ll tell your dad”!

No? How about “If you know what I mean about Iranian theocrats yodeling ditty’s“? If that’s it then I have no idea what you mean but I do think I saw Crowder once in a skit about yodeling theocrats.

I give up. It’s probably something nasty.

Rod on August 1, 2009 at 7:32 AM

iamse7en on July 31, 2009 at 11:04 PM


Here he is.
LOL

Deserves its own thread, IMO. Zo ROCKS.

inviolet on August 1, 2009 at 9:34 AM

I seem to remember Bark O’Bummer telling us the average American worker would begin receiving $63 per month more in his/her paycheck as a result of the so-called stimulus bill. Anyone out there notice $63 extra dollars per month? If so, do you feel stimulated by that??

LEBA on August 1, 2009 at 9:59 AM

A meltdown worth viewing.

The Monster on August 1, 2009 at 12:13 PM

should have shown some of the “places where we were escorted off the premises” as that would have given more action to the flick. Otherwise zzzzzzzzzzzzz

jblock on August 1, 2009 at 1:27 PM

I want to like Crowder, but his character seems affected to me.
