Lesser Known Politicians #1

This is the first in a video series Chris Goodwin and I did on our computers. They’re mostly impressions of lesser-known politicians. We got all of our inspiration for these from a reading circle we had that focused on U.S. History that included lots of really captivating and inciteful biographies. One day, in a heated debate on the imperial intentions  of President Filmore when he forced Japan into trade, Chris stood up and recited part of Filmore’s letter as a citation to his point that pure economic aspirations were beyond any sort of future claims to territory. Later, because it was so moving, Chris did his impression again and we filmed it.

More impressions to come so stay tuned.

  1. Thats great. I still like the impression of Van Buren when he famously told vice president Johnson to try some of “this acid man”.

  2. I love the first “possibly related post” automatically generated. Icing on this cake, baby.

  3. i think they are referring to the blogger, not the subject of the blog
