Attack of the Misfits

If you have missed the breakout success of Misfit Politics, you’ve probably wound up at the wrong page right now. The team at Misfit scored huge with their first video, a parody of Obama for America’s Attack Watch, and their success can only continue. How can I make such a statement? Because I have the pleasure of conversing with much of their team on a regular basis, and have zero doubts as to the talent, dedication, and ability to keep Conservatives laughing and Liberals cringing for a long time to come. It’s time to reveal the Misfit ensemble of Misfit Politics, in hopes that you will help to congratulate them on their premier effort and encourage even more in the quest to make Conservative politics a little more palatable for the masses. Get to know the Misfits and a little more about their venture from my chat with CEO, Brandon Morse.

Misfit Politics

Misfit Politics on Facebook

Who are they?

Leader Folk

Brandon Morse a.k.a @CnservativePunk – Founder, CEO, and all round “decider” of Misfit Politics. Also co-writes and acts in Misfit’s skits and sketches. Overly proud Texan and sore loser. He also plays the microphone and wants to be just like Captain Mal from Firefly when he grows up. His obsessions include Shiner Bock, video games, and crooner music.

Michael Deppisch a.k.a @deppisch – Hailing from Nashville, Michael is Co-writer and director of Misfit’s videos. Michael is the artsy one within Misfit, is an editing savant, and cooks a mean dinner. He’s also an excellent photographer and thus is a model magnet. You’ll usually find him surrounded by Apple products.

Rachel Torres a.k.a. @RachelVeronica – Rachel is one brave woman in a sea of man children. She handles Misfits online social networks and a lot of Misfit’s other inner business workings like an artist. If Brandon takes credit for something, Rachel most likely did it.

Cole Streeper a.k.a. @ColeStreeper1 – Co-writer and trusted white guy within Misfit. He claims to have Hispanic backgrounds within his family so that makes him only half racist. He hails from Arizona, and shares in Brandon’s love of pop punk.

Ezra Dulis a.k.a @ezradulis – The mad genius within Misfit and writer extraordinaire, anytime Ezra puts down a pen to a piece of paper it automatically turns into gold. He was the first to put Misfit on the map with his world famous “ATTACK WAAAAATCH” video and will strive restlessly to attain his true goal of getting running water in his apartment.

Other Misfits

Elizabeth Baires a.k.a @flowerBOMB – Notably the only person within Misfit with any actual experience in the political field. She can tell you how to run a campaign then beat you in Modern Warfare games. Her worst fear is her nearest Nordstrom’s burning down.

Samuel Rosado a.k.a @sarosado – Sam is Misfits proud Latino and friendly neighborhood geek. He’s also passed the bar exam in two different states. Plays it fast and loose, and never gets burned.

Houston Morse a.k.a. @HoustonMorse – Houston is Misfit’s resident ginger, co-writer, and the younger brother of Brandon. From looking at him you’d think he was a linebacker but when he opens his mouth you’ll find that he’s a geek with a love of guns. Tends to ask questions AS he shoots.

Louis Fowler a.k.a @LouisFowler – Louis is the radio personality behind “Damaged Hearing” out in Colorado. He joined Misfit as a writer, podcaster, and idea man. Without a doubt the quickest witted within Misfit, and rightfully thinks Mexican food from anywhere but Texas is a waste of time.

April Thompson a.k.a @oddlysaid – Homeschooling Mom and yet still has time to write the wittiest blogs around. Men and women alike fear her for her sharp wit and even sharper shin kicks.

Sooper Mexican a.k.a. @SooperMexican – Name: Unknown. Birthplace: Unknown. Age: Unknown. The only thing his fellow Misfits and the world know about him, is that Sooper is the comic artist within Misfit Politics. His face his constantly hidden behind a wrestling mask, and he plans to keep it that way. Refers to Brandon as “Gringo.”

Inspiration?
The idea for Misfit came about when my ADD addled brain couldn’t handle the boringness that was Conservative politics. While most people were simply reporting headlines and spouting off statistics, I was busy making jokes about it. I realize that twitter really seemed to appreciate that sort of humor so one day I starting talking with Rachel Torres and Michael Deppisch about putting together a blog site that focused on humor. Over time it developed into much more as Cole, Ezra, Louis, Houston and the others joined the fray. Before I knew it, Misfit had taken on a completely different persona.

Intention?
I’m not going to lie, I plan on Misfit becoming the face of Conservative comedy. I think it’s about time that a place came about where conservatives could take a break from fighting the good fight and laugh at the whole situation for a while. We also plan on turning conservatism on it’s head and really redefining it. Gone are the days of the suit wearing, proper, polite, and careful Conservative. Misfit is going to usher in the unapologetic, real, and humorous conservative who is completely cool with not being politically correct. The left has used pc to control us for far too long.

In the long run?
Well for one, I want to expand Misfit into other areas. We’ll be big into the music scene and plan on focusing a lot on that. Many of the members of Misfit are musically inclined. I love to sing, and Michael is an incredible guitar player. When he sings, panties will fly out of nowhere and hit him. Ezra is also very musically talented, and is in fact the mastermind behind our first music video coming soon. When I first heard the demo I wanted to snuggle with it at night. Cole is, like me, a big fan of the pop punk genre (Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, Taking Back Sunday) and so I have a feeling he and I will be collaborating in the future about that.
We also tend to release lots of swag and merch along with our material. If Misfit doesn’t have it’s own line of clothing within a year I’ll be very surprised. (** author note, I noticed a post on their Facebook page *mentioning* t-shirts… )

Try as I might, I couldn’t get Misfit pinned down on a pick for 2012, but Brandon hints that Generic Republican is ahead in their private polling, at the moment.

Take the time to subscribe to their YouTube channel where you can see there viral hit parody commercial for Attack Watch and, if rumor ( started by the head Misfit himself) is correct, there will be a new release soon. Something about Governor Rick Perry and a musical number.. No, really!

Don’t forget to follow MisfitPolitcs on Twitter and Like them on Facebook. They have a website coming soon!

You can catch their appearance on The Mitchell & Ray show last night right here! and if you just can’t get enough of ATTAAAAACK WAAAAAAAAATCH! you can now snag the ringtone ( in English AND Spanish!) here.

Attaaaackkkk Waatttcchhhh! Snitches Dig Ditches

Yesterday the Obama Twitter team proudly tweeted the creation of the pro-Obama defensive website, Attackwatch.com .

Immediately the Twittersphere exploded with the use of the hashtag #AttackWatch, but most likely not in the way the Obama team had hoped.  The poorly designed Attack Watch website bills itself as a site to counter “right wing” attacks on the President.  It encourages supporters to use the hashtag to report unfair attacks and stories and to request information to counter those attacks.  “Get the facts, fight the smears” is their motto.  The hashtag did indeed generate a huge influx of tweets, causing it to trend on Twitter in less than twelve hours.  However, the majority of responses were tweeted by conservatives and like-minded people and were heavy on snark, insults and sarcasm.  Tweeters accused Attack Watch of being a snitch site, a poor copy of Media Matters and reminiscent of the Gestapo.  Many began to use the hashtag to “report” their friends for anti-Obama tweeting and even their own children for subversive behavior. 

What obviously seemed like a clever idea in the beginning for the Obama teamed has quickly evolved into an embarrassing joke.  Obama already has the undeniably bias support of the mainstream media, cable outlets (minus FOX), print media (that’s what we call the newspapers people used to read) and a plethora of Internet sites, including Huffington Post, Media Matters and others.  They leap to his defense on any mention of his weaknesses and even go so far as to publish out and out lies about entities like the tea party.  The fact that the Obama team felt it was necessary to create yet another “defensive” website speaks to the sheer desperation they must be feeling right now, and it shows.  Team Obama has not yet accepted the fact that the mere specter of the President opening his mouth to speak is not enough to distract an increasingly informed and engaged public from his horrifying failure of leadership.  And while it may sound alarmist, the idea of a “snitch” site in the first place says a lot about where in the political spectrum the President’s sensibilities lie.  It would be very disturbing were it not so completely, embarrassingly ridiculous.  Even the guys over at Misfit Politics got in on the action, creating this brilliant “ad” for Attack Watch, which has since gone viral.

The jury is still out, but it may be that Obama has finally jumped the shark with this one.  He is quickly becoming the laughing stock of his own carefully controlled production.  This idea was pitiful and very ill-timed, considering the onslaught of Obama scandals that have come to light in the last few weeks.  He deserves to be ridiculed.  In fact, ridicule is one of Alinsky’s rules for defeating political foes;  and one that Andrew Breitbart has taken for his own and encouraged others to do the same.  Let’s help expose the inanity of this latest rope-a-dope by our dear leader and continue to laugh hysterically with each other and AT the Obama team.  Share this hysterical video.  Visit Twitter and search the hashtag #AttackWatch for even more great laughs.  Let’s let the watchers who are watching us know that we are watching them watch, so watch out.
