With just a few short weeks before Republicans and Democrats gather for their respective conventions, organizers are going to need all the help they can get before the curtain goes up. As John Stewart points out, the Democratic National Committee is looking to acquire some rather specific theatrical property.
“A recently leaked memo shows that the Democrats are actively casting the entire convention, seeking ‘real people’ like an auto worker whose job was saved, a student who benefitted from college loans, and a Planned Parenthood husband who talks about how a PAP smear saved his wife’s life,” explains Stewart, “Word of advice: you might want to lower the bar to a guy who knows what a PAP smear is.”
According to the memo, the DNC also seeks a “gay soldier and fellow (straight) soldier who served together in Iraq or Afghanistan (ideally the straight soldier was helped by the gay soldier, i.e., medic, in fire fight).”
Can the Daily Show’s props master John Oliver and reality show casting agent Vinnie Potestivo help the DNC in the quest for America’s ulitmate political prop?
