Any Musicians/Sound Editors Like This Idea?
— Ace

I really think the questions in Poland are so hysterically pathetic and whiny it would be a helpful thing, or at least a satisfying one, to get them out there.

So here's what I thought: A rhythm-and-drums techno sort of track, with the questions by the reporter looped in the mix. Like make the found dialogue part of the rhythm. Or the melody. Or whatnot. I don't do music.

Maybe finish and end with a brief snippet of Romney' speech, because he, presumably, sounds like an adult, and the contrast would be humorous.

I hardly need to inform you that press coverage will be about the Romney aide's "gaffe" and not about this obnoxious caterwauling by our intersex press corps. An entertaining little dance track could change that.

1 Something like Autotune The News?   That would be    awesome.        I don't do music either, but I KNOW we have some techie/music-y inclined 'rons and 'ronettes around here.

2 Do you pay? I know someone - who used to work for me - who could probably do this. He does a lot of moon lighting and such. I'm pretty sure he's conservative.

5 >>>Something like Autotune The News? well, there could be some autotune in there, near the end, but you'd want the naked sound of the questions for most of the song, because autotune would make them harmonious, which they are decidedly not. So, towards the end, when you're running out of ways to mix them, sure, autotune; but in the beginning, just this obnoxious human noise.

68 Holy crap even Bill Kristol gets it. (via that place that will not be linked.) Not so Bill Kristol: The media's all atwitter about yet another "gaffe" that will allegedly mar the Romney trip. Au contraire: The trip will prove to have been a big success—unless the Romney campaign succumbs to the media narrative and becomes defensive and apologetic. ... A good start would be for Mitt Romney to walk off the plane in Boston arm-in-arm with Rick Gorka, showing solidarity with his aide who tried to insist on respect for their Polish hosts at a solemn memorial site, and who had the wit to tell the press corps what to do.

I've worked in various jobs where I had to deal with the general public on the phone.  As such, I've had to put up with a lot of angry people calling complain about this   and that, to berate me for things that my company did that I had nothing to do with, etc.   For the most part you grin and bear it and try to    keep from escalating the situation.     9 times out 10 it works; all the person usually needs is someone who will actually listen and try to resolve the problem.

 

But you know what?   There are times when one of those people on the phone just becomes too abusive for any kind of rational    action.    He or she doesn't want to resolve a situation; they just want to yell.      That's when you say, "Sir/Madam, if you continue to address me with that tone I'll end this call."    I don't care what a person is paid -- no one should have to sit there for twenty minutes with some deadbeat asshole calling them a c*nt because of some bill he has to pay.     If they don't knock it off, you hang up the phone.

 

That's what Gorka did here.   He hung up the phone.

84 It's so damn backwards. The NYT and CNN should be apologizing to the Polish people for the disrespectful, immature behavior of their reporters . Instead the media is blitzing the nation with this image--when they should be embarrassed to high hell--because they think they have a Romney--"gotcha" moment. And to top it all of Gorka is apologizing to them. Someone should ask the State Department if we've apologized to the Poles for the bad behavior of the NYT and CNN reporter.

86 Geek out moment: Gorka should have given a Sheridan apology. On the TV show Babylon 5, character John Sheridan had ordered the destruction of a ship from a (barely) allied navy when it fired on his space station. He was ordered to make an official apology but told he could choose his own words. "I apologize. I'm .. sorry. I'm sorry we had to defend ourselves against an unwarranted attack. I'm sorry that your crew was stupid enough to fire on a station filled with a quarter million civilians, including your own people. And I'm sorry I waited as long as I did before I blew them all straight to hell."
