Two Romneys Make A Right

The Romney team has responded strongly to the most recent polls showing Obama slightly ahead in the presidential race by shifting into top gear and making some last minute changes to their current campaign. In a move welcomed by the majority of the Republican candidate's supporters, the team have decided to have charismatic actor Jason Bateman play the role of Mitt Romney in all public appearances for the remainder of the campaign. Jason Bateman, better known for his roles in various popular sitcoms and movies, was excited about his new role as Mitt Romney and hoped to bring a smart but lovable goof type of edge to the Romney character.

Mitt will be watching from the sidelines and will only be brought back into the game if Bateman either succumbs to injury or mentions his movie Teen Wolf II on more than the one occasion.

This is not the first time that the Republican party have employed the acting talents of a charismatic personality to play the role of the candidate. George Bush was replaced only two weeks into the campaign by comic legend Johnny Carson in a move that proved instrumental in ensuring success at the polls for both the 2000 and 2004 elections. Time will only tell if the decision to employ the services of Jason Bateman has been done early enough to turn around the numbers or if the decision to bench Mitt has come too late.

Bush was successfully elected President during the 2000 and 2004 campaigns but after being forced to play himself in the 2008 campaign, after the sad passing of Carson in 2005, was finally defeated by Barack Obama.

  1. I never thought I’d vote for a Republican until now. Jason is my all-time biggest celeb crush. Little House…oh and loved Silver Spoons! “together….we’re gonna find our way…..takin the time each day…..”
    I’ve just recently discovered Arrested Development, too. Hilarious! Wait…was this about Mitt? Sorry, I got a bit sidetracked…

    The Republicans weren’t the only ones to use stand-ins during campaigns… Madonna appeared in place of Hillary Clinton in 2008.

  3. Snoring Dog Studio says:

    Well, it is kind of appropriate, given that Bateman was the huge star of Arrested Development. Because that’s exactly what I think about Romney. He never developed a conscience nor any empathy.

    Let’s not forget that an actor Ronald Reagan played a role of a Republican president from 1981 to 1989…
