In vino veritas

| October 1, 2009

Byron York — who continues to do outstanding investigative reporting and commentary over at the Washington Examiner — picks up this video of Austan Goolsbee, a member of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Turns out Goolsbee was a contestant in (and eventual winner of) a Washington celebrity comedy contest. As York points out, Goolsbee’s routine uses the sotto voce “subliminal” shtick from Saturday Night Live. He takes shots all around, including some rather pointed ones at the White House itself. A bit long but worth the time — some of his best zings are saved for last.  As he says at the end, be mindful of the unemployed here in the United States, “… because when Rahm Emanuel sees my comments from this evening, I’m going to be one of them.”  ..bruce w..
