Crowd at Detroit rally blasts Romney's economic plans
Detroit — The real Mitt Romney couldn't make it this week. He was 1,000 miles away in Florida preparing Thursday afternoon to accept the GOP presidential nomination. It's probably for the best, since a rally hosted by Good Jobs Now — a coalition of community groups and labor supporters — featured plenty of anger toward economic proposals in Romney's platform. About 200 people turned up Thursday afternoon at Greening of Detroit Park for a rally that featured impressionist Jim Gossett in the role of an unwelcome Romney.
Fake Mitt Romney stars at Detroit pro-Democrat rally
Detroit — The real Mitt Romney couldn't make it this week. He's roughly 1,000 miles away in Florida preparing to accept Thursday night the GOP presidential nomination. It's probably for the best, since the rally hosted by Good Jobs Now featured plenty of anger toward the economic proposals in the candidate's platform.
President Barack Obama impersonator Maxwell Price and Governor Mitt Romney impersonator Jim Gossett appear at Freedom Fest 2012, a major convention of Libertarians at Bally's Hotel Casino, and take some time out to roast audience members Steve Forbes and Governor Gary Johnson. These are excerpts from the Politicos Comedy Brigade show "Comedy Campaign 2012," and this particular performance is moderated by Donald Trump impersonator John Di Domenico.
President Barack Obama impersonator Maxwell Price performs the Politicos Comedy Brigade original song "I Am Barack," a musical parody of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive." This music video is a mash-up of three renditions of the song by Price during live performances of the Politicos Comedy Brigade show "Comedy Campaign 2012," including Freedom Fest 2012 at Bally's Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, First Allied in San Diego, and Louisiana Association of Builders and Contractors in Destin.
The art director on our Romney-vs.-Obama boxing-match photo shoot explains how it came together.
Every four years James Fallows previews the presidential debates. He's a big deal, it's a big deal. Four years ago the solution was to montage news shots of Obama and McCain on to a dramatic black background. It made, sense, looked good, a quick read—a successful cover. Let's do something like that.
How do we do a version that's relevant to this year? What's unique? It's going to be dirty. (Isn't it always?) So let's show them fighting. You know, really fighting. Illustration or photomontage? Remembered a shoot five or six years from New York magazine, where I then worked. British artist / photographer / provocateur Alison Jackson photographed lookalikes of Brad and Angelina with newborn baby. (Back then, Adam Moss, New York's editor, had wanted to get the first baby shots, scooping People, Hello, and US Weekly. Trouble was the baby hadn't been born and we didn't want to pay $6 million for first rights—not that it would be offered. Funny.) So that's our idea: a fight with lookalikes of Mitt and Barack going at it in a boxing ring.
Wait! Is that Barack Obama joking around with Mitt Romney?
Passengers on this morning’s Virgin America flight from San Francisco to Washington D.C. could be forgiven for being confused when they saw the two Presidential contenders standing at their gate.
In-flight entertainment just took on a whole new meaning. In order to tout its new partnership with Rock the Vote, Virgin America hired Obama and Romney impersonators to fly with passengers on the airline’s new San Francisco to Washington, D.C., route. Impersonators Jim Gossett (Romney) and Reggie Brown (Obama) traversed a much shorter campaign trail than their real-life doppelgangers – only the length of the center aisle – to encourage a few more Americans to register to vote even before they touched the ground.
The inaugural flight arrived Tuesday, and included Obama and Romney impersonators among the passengers
President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney flew into Reagan National Airport Tuesday afternoon. Actually, it was not the real presidential candidates but impersonators, a way for Virgin America to let the Washington area know it has started a new nonstop service to and from San Francisco.
Rock the Vote teams up with Virgin America flights so customers can register to vote mid-flight
If on-demand movies, a 4,000 song playlist and onboard video games aren't enough to keep guests entertained on a Virgin America flight, the airline is now offering a complimentary new service to get passengers engaged before the November election — voter registration at 35,000 feet.
