Geez - I almost want to go see that "movie."
Scarey music- Save me strong-man Tim!

I do like that this was posted under Creepy Stuff.
Wait, is he running for President or an Oscar nomination? I'm confused.
It is very "movie-like." I want to see the shocker ending where he saves the planet from an asteroid.
Triumph of the Swill.
Is this the actual trailer released by T-Paw or did someone modify it for comedic effect?
Shane, it's taken verbatim off of Fox's website. Maybe someone hacked into their website and posted it there. All I know is, it gets the adrenaline running, I'm thinking Harrison Ford is going to pop out any second, and tell the bad guys to get off his plane, like in that movie!
Comment #56 on the old post about the Courage to Stand cover includes a video parody of this trailer, but the original is so comically cheesy that it's hard to parody it.
By the way, this video was released as a trailer for the book, even though Fox News published it with the headline "Tim Pawlenty releases stunning campaign video."
(Fox is technically correct I suppose, if who-is-anyone-fooling guidelines are applied. And Fox is certainly correct that the video is "stunning," although maybe what is meant by "stunning" varies from person to person.)
Thanks, I think being filed under creepy is a good place for it.
I just wish I could expectorate that fallacious little Mink onto my kitchen floor, mop him up, and flush him down my garbage disposal somehow. I'd work minimum wage to pay five grand and go one round with him. All right, I'm calm now....
Freedom = FEAR, or Be afraid America be very afraid!
It takes real courage to foist this continual nonsense on the gullible citizens of this country, who evidently are buying into this BS.
Paul, that's the BOOK TRAILER? Sheezus Almighty.... Cheesiest book trailer EVER. Now, Laurie Hertzel's book trailer rocks!
"In a world..."
Books have trailers?
It's the latest trend, Rae, in our increasingly high-tech, visual society. Don't know how effective it is as a marketing gimmick, but a lot of book publishers have been producing them for the last two or three years or so. I wish I had a link to Laurie Hertzel's trailer for News to Me, produced by U of MN press, it's fabulous.
Ms. Hertzel's trailer:
Although book trailers on YouTube might be a new trend, the idea of a book trailer goes back at least to the 1980s.
And there must have been TV spots for versions of the Bible and probably some other books that go back decades further.
Thanks for posting the News to Me book trailer, Paul, I should have done it myself, but I am a dork, did not think to post it instead of just raving about it!
Thanks a lot for posting this! Not only did I waste a minute 26 seconds of my life watching it, now I have to clean the vomit off of my key board!
It's just catchy and edgy enough to scare the piss out of any red blooded socialist fearin conspiracy theorist whackjob...
...from a Clear And Present Danger/Red Dawn perspective, that is.
Yeah. Funny. Easy to miss the crap when there are so many great books out there. Who even wrote Courage to Stand anyways?
Git r duuuun!!
Brace yourselves. Another thrilling Pawlenty video:
I guess the marketing firm for the "book trailer" had a 2 for 1 deal. Ugh.
Um, when did the U.S. become occupied? I like the flashes of color in the ad, just so, you know, nobody gets any ideas.
Oh, and compare his praise for a movement growing and making a difference with this ad:
I guess T-Paw is stocking up on apocalyptic ads.
Is that Too Many Banjos' music on the Hertzel promo?
I can't get enough of that "take our country back" bullshit. Back from who? The black guy? I thought so.
Loony-ass huck is gonna be the nominee.
Sparhawk, I am pretty sure the band on Laurie Hertzel's book trailer is not Too Many Banjos, I will ask her. I love them, though! Great sound.
Lojasmo -- sad when loony-Ass Huck is the most sane of the insane Repubs running... at least he's not a sell-out opportunist like our boy, T-Paw.
They can "take America back" when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.
OK Zra. That will make it easier. If you want to see who your next President will be, watch this:
A true Patriot that knows what this country needs. He'll crush the silly little socialists and unite us in a way that hasn't happened since post WWII. I'd go to war for this guy...
Jim, you'd go to war for a toasted cheese sandwich. Don't fool yourself, the rest of America doesn't sit around waxing monkey to Paw and Palin like you'd have yourself believe, this is where the counselor would come in, to help you realize we didn't get anything for killing a half million Iraqis, just cost us our economy. Do yourself a favor and start getting your news from more than one source.
Jim, if that guy wants to rail against tyrannical government, he should rail against Scott Walker. The fact that the Tea Baggers are supporting such a tyrant who has no respect for the United States Constitution or for Wisconsin residents tells me everything I need to know about the intelligence of you and your Tea Bag friends. I'm not impressed.
Congressman West sees a class warfare between the "producing class" and the "entitlement class."
Some people break it down to the "haves" and "have nots."
The thing is, the working poor are part of the "producing class" and the "have nots." So whose side will they be on in the class war?
An interesting take on book trailers from my friend Ed Nawotka:
