Crowder: Hopeandchange Halloween

posted at 12:20 pm on October 31, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Imagine Barack Obama’s economic policies as if they applied to …trick or treatSteven Crowder pulls a Clutch Cargo vibe in his latest video while highlighting the Captain Planet silliness of the current administration’s policies.  All of this makes me remember what the costume I really wanted for this evening … Uncle Waldo!  Or more easily, Joe the Plumber:

Happy Halloween, everyone — and just remember, the scariest things aren’t found under your bed or in your basement.  They’re found on Capitol Hill and inside the Beltway.

Awesome.

That was one of Crowder’s best.

+1 Awesome.

therightscoop on October 31, 2009 at 12:31 PM

I’m not sure what’s creepier: The video’s faces or that Obama’s plans are actually like that.

Wait. The second is just downright scary.

Trick the “rich” into treating the government. Pretty much sums it up

Haunches on October 31, 2009 at 12:33 PM

The lack of noses frightens me.

Enoxo on October 31, 2009 at 12:33 PM

Great video:)

Made My Day…So Far Anyway “BOO”

Reminded me of that freaky “Thumb Wars” spoof.

Orange Doorhinge on October 31, 2009 at 12:37 PM

Guess what political side these kids believe in? I wonder what the lefty kids would do?

bbordwell on October 31, 2009 at 12:38 PM

Hah..”bite me!” Love it.

SouthernGent on October 31, 2009 at 12:42 PM

Crowder is a national treasure – More please!

Norwegian on October 31, 2009 at 12:45 PM

Videos like this deserve to go viral. This is by far the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while.

bluestateconservative on October 31, 2009 at 12:46 PM

Pacing really needed some tightening up, but otherwise funny.

MadisonConservative on October 31, 2009 at 12:50 PM

This is so funny. I had considered a variant of this at our home. Leave out two bowls on the porch, an empty one, and one with candy. Put a sign above the empty one saying, “If you like Obama, please deposit 50% of your candy here and we will redistribute it to those we believe more deserving than you.” Another sign over the full bowl that says, “…But if you are a true American conservative, please enjoy our charity.”

But then I decided I didn’t want egg on our home or nosy neighbors reporting us to DHS! :-)

PrincipledPilgrim on October 31, 2009 at 12:55 PM

That was ridiculous! Obama can’t hold an impromptu conversion with children without a scripted TOTUS on the scene.

Shy Guy on October 31, 2009 at 12:59 PM

PrincipledPilgrim on October 31, 2009 at 12:55 PM

Love your thinking. ;}

Dark-Star on October 31, 2009 at 1:06 PM

I’m gonna eat all my candy before Obama gets to it!

Yakko77 on October 31, 2009 at 1:10 PM

Haunting…

Seven Percent Solution on October 31, 2009 at 1:12 PM

Very good. Unfortunately the Maobama character looks like Derek Jeter.

P.S.

AP, don’t dress up as an Alpha Male for Halloween, again.

blatantblue on October 31, 2009 at 1:28 PM

“Now you know what it feels to be Joe Biden.”

LOL! Zing

becki51758 on October 31, 2009 at 1:55 PM

Thanks. Just glad I got to hold him as he went.

blatantblue on October 31, 2009 at 2:20 PM

SNL needs Crowder. His Obama impersonation was a couple billion times better than the SNL dude.

29Victor on October 31, 2009 at 2:41 PM

Should set up a big screen in the front yard and make all the trick-or-treaters watch it. Now that’s education!

Christian Conservative on October 31, 2009 at 2:48 PM

Joe Biden rocked in this clip!

mizflame98 on October 31, 2009 at 2:58 PM

That might be the best ever.

Happy Reformation Day!

Very funny stuff Crowder.

oakpack on October 31, 2009 at 3:42 PM

An explanation of socialism that the kids can understand…
& a big Thanks to Crowder for the laugh.
Happy Halloween!!

right wing chicky on October 31, 2009 at 4:09 PM

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL MY FINE CONSERVATIVE FRIENDS. AND TO SOME OF YOU SCARY LIBS!

That was a hoot. Happy Halloween folks.

Cindy Munford on October 31, 2009 at 4:29 PM

Crowder rocks.

TexasDan on October 31, 2009 at 4:38 PM

He comes up with the most creative insanely funny stuff. I liked his Zombie Pelosi vids too.

Coronagold on October 31, 2009 at 5:03 PM

That was hilarious!

Clark1 on October 31, 2009 at 5:07 PM

All of this makes me remember what the costume I really wanted for this evening … Uncle Waldo!

Heh. Nice choice. And if I could do Hans Conreid’s voice I’d prolly dress up as Snidely Whiplash.

After that Uncle Waldo confession, I’m curious how others are dressing. This year, though, I went with what I had: I started shaving my head this year, have a huge moustache, and have been working out a lot. I suppose I could go as another plumber, but this year I’m opting for a cartoon character about as obscure as Uncle Waldo.

apostic on October 31, 2009 at 5:12 PM

too funny :)

nwpammy on October 31, 2009 at 6:05 PM

I likey!

yoda on October 31, 2009 at 6:34 PM

That was funny,especially Biden popping in and out,hehe!

Happy Halloween Hot Air Crew,and to all my American
neighbours:)

canopfor on October 31, 2009 at 7:07 PM

In San Antonio, Halloween is for the kids. I had about 200 come by this evening, and there were no devils or slutty tots.

If your kids brought home some candy, I suggest chunking anything you do not recognize. There is more and more junk from China – just saying – check the label or chunk it.

bbhack on October 31, 2009 at 10:22 PM

Great, thanks for the giggles.

Sorry to hear about your dog passing…..

Red State State of Mind on November 1, 2009 at 12:56 AM

Somebody didn’t raise their conservative “kids” correctly.

What do you do when someone doesn’t give you candy?

I’ll give you a hint… they didn’t give you a “treat”… and soap, eggs, or toilet paper aren’t that expensive.

For4 goodness sake, did nobody else learn early that the whole point of Halloween was a children’s example of Mobster “protection” scams run in an allowed and easy to understand fashion?

You give me candy… or something bad might happen to your car or house (which will cost more than buying candy in the first place).

Am I the only one who got the full edumucation on this one?

gekkobear on November 1, 2009 at 1:44 AM

HAHAHAHAHA…ah.. Crowder…HAHAHAHAHA…
I agreed …one of your best.

jerrytbg on November 1, 2009 at 6:48 AM

Where’s my Joe the Plumber costume?

APs got it and won’t return it until the man is burned at the stake or when dawkins reveals to him the true meaning (or not) of life.

Fuquay Steve on November 1, 2009 at 11:36 AM

Somebody call the Waaaaaaambulance. All little kids need to get used to not getting what was billed as free. In 60 years the Obama care death panels will be denying them life saving medical care.
