Hello! And welcome to another edition of AwfulVision!
Sometimes, here at AwfulVision, I like to do something a little different. "But Seth 'Occupy Japan' Bailey," you say, "I thought you were hired to write unfunny things about bad YouTube videos!". This is very true, and while I won't be deviating from the unfunny part, I do sometimes like to deviate from the "random bad videos" part if AwfulVision happens to fall on a certain date or I find something particularly noteworthy to dedicate an entire article to.
I'm sure you can probably guess what today's article is about!
Yes, as luck would have it, AwfulVision just so happened to fall on election day here in the good ol' US of A, so instead of making fun of fat juggalos and fat furries and fat libertarians, I thought I'd dedicate this article to some of the greatest political hits (and misses) ever caught on tape.
And don't worry: this is American politics we're talking about. There's still plenty of "awful".
Republicans announce that all legislation must be voted on at 2am in a secret chamber, with no one but the lobbyists who write the bills seeing a single line of text. Democrats' Response: Stumbling around a field stepping on rakes, handles smashing them directly in their faces every single time.
There is a witch hunt going on right now and I promise you that you will not find any witches in the pleasure room in my congressional office.
For fans of meaningless awards, these awards are extra meaningless.
As you may have noticed, the most popular viral videos at any given time are amazingly banal, annoying, and cliched pieces of waste. It almost seems as if the internet naturally gravitates towards the worst possible Youtube and Google video selections. So it stands to reason that if the terrible videos become popular, then the unpopular videos must be awesome! We here at Something Awful present to you AwfulVision™, our own patented service dedicated to showcasing a wide selection of unpopular videos that apparently must be good! Welcome to Web 3.9.
