If Filibusters Were All About Star Wars C-SPAN Would Rule [VIDEO]
Patton Oswalt’s filibuster on parks and recreation was not only hilarious but it was downright impressive. I’ve never watched parks and recreation before and after seeing this clip I now I feel guilty. This 8 minute rant about the plot of the new Star Wars film had me hooked. This makes me wish that anytime someone tried to exercise their right to filibuster at the higher level of government would dare to be so creative. Now that I know the show Parks and recreation is filled with little nuggets of gold like this I may have to make some time in my “doing nothing” schedule or just DVR the hell out if. Boom solution!
“…Pan down from the twin suns of tatooine... we are now close to the mouth of the sarlacc pit and after a beat the gloved mandalorian armor gauntlet of Boba Fett …”
“…We see Thanos! Who is the villain teas at the end of the first Avengers movie…”
“I’m sorry but Hawk Eye and Black Widow are NOT first teer Avengers.”
“Han say’s that the planet Coruscant has been destroyed by this very mysterious force.”
“We think it’s going to be the Millennium Falcon just like in episode 4 when he comes in and save them…”
“Oh my God Lando Calrissian and Princess Leia are having an afar!” - Patton Oswalt (Parks and Recreation)
