Family resemblance

Take in one minute of each and tell me I'm imagining things.


Lonesome Roads

Rick Perry

  1. Perry in Mayberry . . . say it ain't so. But it probably always was.

  2. Same accent; Andy Griffith, however, has a better writer.

  3. Oh, he wants that gold to be gooooood, cracker!

  4. What, the attitudes presented?
    Although, you'd have to almost be a megalomaniac (check that spelling) to run for President, wouldn't you? I can only imagine one exception . . .

    It makes me wonder about the personal motivations of each candidate. I believe you can determine intuitively, bolstered by experience, people's character through observation. Though I still say Clinton was the best lier I ever done seen.

  5. As a matter of fact, I saw a clip of the Perry speech and it nagged at me -- who did he remind me of. Then I got it.

    Bandit, I saw the similarity in attitude, arrogance, cadence, accent, pitch, slogans.

  6. Perry is a jerk, there I said it. I have come to the conclusion from the last election and the looming election that all a politician does is campaign to become elected. Once elected, they remain campaigning to either get re-elected or campaign against the opposing party. Does a politician do any real work? I thought not.

  7. Griffith WAS acting....wait, then again, so is Perry.

    I just hope we never have to see Perry's man-boobs...

    wv: undia. seeing any part of Perry's undia would be a bad day!

  8. The 2 major families all resemble each other as far as I'm concerned.

  9. Texan tall talk. Why do these guys always show up on the campaign trail?

    A face in the Crowd...Patricia Neal, Elia Kazan...so good

  11. It's like watching a comedy sniper, one after the other, they all fall down. By the way, I think that's an insult to Andy.

  12. Andy Griffith is one of my favorite actors. As this movie proves, he's not afraid to be hated, in all a character's complexity. Never once tips the hand, as most actors do, to say, Hey, I'm playing. It's still charming me under here.

    He was brilliant in Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author, as well.

  13. Go watch your Pirandello in the den, I'm watching No Time for Sargeants.

  14. I never tire of Mayberry RFD, they never once insult anyone's intelligence.

  15. I watched all of the first clip but could only last 50 seconds of the second. You're definitely on to something. I have somehow avoided hearing Perry speak until now. Although I did crack up at this:

    Rick Perry bad lip reading

    The Romney one is the best though.

  16. Lost the Katie smackdown once again. Where do you find these?

  17. You have to see them all. You know I love my president but his is one of the funniest.

  18. Griffith in Pirandello? Wow, I'd like to see that. Enlighten us, please.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes, they both that that Texas twang. Andy Griffith is more intense. Perry's downright goofy.

  20. I'm probably just echoing what everyone else has said but to watch this movie for the first time is a total revelation. I never knew Griffiths had it in him and it makes me a little sad that he never had too many opportunities to put his talent on display.

  22. Griffith is cool, but how about some Tom Waits:

  23. The 1st time I saw Waits was at a Springsteen concert at the LA Sports Arena. The Boss brot him up to sing a duet.

    After hearing Tom, I knew I could sing and kicked myself again for not pursuing music.
