Lawn Chair Quarterback: "Tim Makes A Spectacle Of Himself"

As much as I admire Oscar the Grouch, sometimes I see the beauty in things that other people - least of all right-wingers - don't.

Take the expression "to make a spectacle of oneself", for instance. My 5th grade teacher was the first person I ever heard using this idiom, and when I heard her say it, I started snickering because of the image it created.

Some on the extreme right might not appreciate the humor in this expression. Thankfully, I'm not of their political guild, so I can appreciate the exquisiteness of those words.

The latest episode of 'Lawn Chair Quarterback' delves into those words' beauty:

  2. I don't see what that has to do with John Denver, peanut butter, and making a spectacle of oneself.

  3. Your video, much like your mouth Saturday night, sucked. So I ignored it.

  4. It's a good thing Lawn Chair Quarterback has closed captioning because I have to watch it with the sound turned off at work

  5. The closed captioning is never accurate though - because YouTube bases it on that ValSpeak that Brit Hume uses.

  6. For next week's episode try imitating Brit Hume and see if CC gets it right.
