“Game Change” and “Showgirls”: Politics as Camp
Here is my post for In Media Res, in which I try to explain “politics as camp” in 400 words or less. MORE IMPORTANTLY, you can see the video I made cutting up “Showgirls” and “Game Change” to demonstrate that they are the same movie. Click through!

"… I was at the gym when the [Palin] news broke, hence the late post. And, of course, the news was juxtaposed by the untimely death of Steve Jobs. Leonard Cohen once said of America that it was “the cradle of the best and the worst”. Today, we lost one of the very best in American history, a reticent genius and entrepreneur, an inspiration for countless of us who has changed the very fabric of our lives. And we also saw the end of the road for one of the very worst: a nasty, callow, delusional, vicious know-nothing, brewed in resentment, and whose accomplishments could fit on a postage stamp. It’s a fitting comparison: achievement versus resentment, creativity versus narcissism, hope versus fear. I know which one will get the bigger headlines tomorrow. And there is some comfort in knowing it will pain her."

Sarah Palin just pitched cutting all corporate federal income taxes — by removing loopholes and bailouts. What?

Make of that what you will.

The number of buzzwords in this speech is just stunning.

A speech written entirely in Google search terms.

Sarah Palin’s speaking now. She’s talking about “crony capitalism” at the moment. And the “permanent political class.”

You can slice the irony with a steak knife.
