Well, At Least Tim James Has An Aesthetic

by Jim Newell

Okay, one more. Tim James has another ad. Same dramatic pauses. Same wandering all over the damn place. Tim James is a national treasure and should be put in a time capsule. It makes sense to us.

…Does it to you?

Tim James seems like a very good actor if he were in a Lifetime movie.

rambone April 23, 2010 at 6:08 pm

Filming both ads at the same time saves them the expense of sneaking into the hotel lobby twice.

You gotta keep moving, though, or else the security dude will toss you out on your melodramatic ass.

Jar Jar Was a Senator April 23, 2010 at 6:10 pm

Not “it makes sense to us”, just “it makes sense”. If you add “to us”, you add a subjective uncertainty that makes the subsequent “does it to you?” flow properly like it was written by an adult.

ManchuCandidate April 23, 2010 at 6:12 pm

Big wheels keep on exploding
Nearly kill me on the road
Singing songs about the pollution
I miss Alabamy once again
And I think its a sin, yes

Well I heard lawyers want to just sue her
Well, I heard ole Tim shut’em down
Well, I hope Lawyers will remember
That Tim James don’t need them around anyhow

Pro bidniz Alabama
Where the skies are so thick
Pro bidniz Alabama
Lord, I’m coming home to you

Old Tim James a GOPer for governor
Now we all did what we could do
Drinking arsenic does not bother me
Does your declining health bother you?
Tell the truth

Pro bidniz Alabama
Where the taxes are so low
Pro bidniz Alabama
Lord, we’ll suck more Fed money
Here I come Alabama

Tim is a bidnessman. And what kind of bidness is Tim in? The construction, asphalt and industrial waste bidness, that’s what kind. So why would a guy like that want tort reform? Henngh?

Naked Bunny with a Whip April 23, 2010 at 6:17 pm

“I’m not a lawyer. I’m a businessman.”

Because lawyers don’t own or operate businesses.

And no, it doesn’t make sense to me. Perhaps it would help if you actually moved your lips a bit when talking. Try it sometime, Slurry.

Poochie April 23, 2010 at 6:17 pm

Beck Licks Seer Stones April 23, 2010 at 6:18 pm

Questioning politicians’ motives by saying they don’t want to reform their source of income, while saying you’re a businessman with pro-business policies in the same sentence. Ohh, Alabama, you deserve Charles Barkley in 2014.

happyrock April 23, 2010 at 6:28 pm

Fred Thompson has had a lot of “work done”, hasn’t he. He looks so young and still all common sense trustworthish.

Smoke Filled Roommate April 23, 2010 at 6:28 pm

What is he trying to invoke in those awkward pauses? The Thinker? Shit, he looks like he has adult ADHD.

PortlandSmartAss April 23, 2010 at 6:28 pm

Does he keep his teleprompter on the floor, or does he keep looking down because he’s about to cry?

Also, not to be too grammatical (after all, he’s a Southerner), but the words “frivolous” and “lawsuits” don’t do anything. The two words, put together, simply describe something — something easy to say and hard to define. As it is, every state system, and the federal system, have a procedure for imposing sanctions in response to “frivolous” lawsuit. So really, Mr. James just doesn’t like how legislatures and judges define what is, and what is not, frivolous.

Perhaps Alabama can beat our Arizona for “stupidest legislation of 2010?”

doxastic April 23, 2010 at 6:29 pm

Escape Goat Nation April 23, 2010 at 6:55 pm

I think it’s clear that the actor guy that was too lazy to decide if he wanted to run for President, a position he held in deep contempt, taught the Alabama guy how to walk, talk and reflect on his walking, talking and reflecting for the TeeVee cameras.

If AL’s anything like NC (and I’m sure much of it is quite similar), the Messicans are the hardest-working, most upstanding, decent people in many rural areas. Don’t believe me? Go the the local Wal-Mart (the only successful large business in many communities) and who, in general, looks/acts the trashiest, the whites, or the hispanics?

One Yield Regular April 23, 2010 at 7:17 pm

Okay, even with my southern background I could barely understand a word. Was he speaking Quebecois?

Also, as a dramatic device, this walking around an empty house and looking down with a melancholic, resigned pause might work better if they added a final shot revealing that, for the whole time, he’s been gingerly stepping over bodies.

If Alabama were a daytime soap opera, Tim James would definitely have the atmospherics to be its governor — and if he had an eyepatch he’d win in a landslide.

superfluity April 23, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Tragic news for global comedy and the future of this meme at Wonkette from my Alabama relatives: Tim James will likely lose the primary to “Bradley Byrne,” who is the favored candidate of the “wealthy.”

Plus Fort McClellan used to be the the school where the Army trained its Chemical Corps and the radiaton guys. That’s just one little part of the state that I happen to know about, but you begin to think two things: they’ve suffered enough, and no wonder a dipshit like Tim James is considered a viable candidate for elective office.

And check out this “paid for by Tim James.” It has all the specious reasoning of the ads, minus the creative “acting”:

Don’t miss the part where he insists, “All decisions and actions of elected officials are to be the same behind closed doors as those seen in the light of day.” Does that mean no more diapers on Republican senators, Tim? Because I certainly don’t want to see something like that … in the lyaht of day.

And did y’all know Tim is “the son of a renowned Alabamian, Fob James, Jr., a former two-term governor of Alabama”? So now we know HOW he managed to own and operate “an asphalt construction business, as well as building and operating an incineration company treating non-hazardous industrial waste” without having to deal with any of that pesky “tort.”

Je-SUS. He must be a real fuck-up not to be running away with this election.

So elect me Guvner and I’ll make them wish they’d never swam their dirty asses into our United States, and I’ll see what I can do about the dahky locally. With one of ‘em in the White House, I don’t hold out much hope for fixin’ the uppity negra problem any time soon.

Waaay, waaay, waaay off topic but since it’s Sunday and you people are pack of Godless heathens who often find themselves arguing with “The Chosen”, I thought I’d throw you a little ammo from todays bible reading

Isaih 32 6-8

6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

7.The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

8.But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

So conservatives are churls and liberals are doing Gods will, it says so in the bible and the bible is never wrong. Now, get thee behind me, Satan.

Tim James is vile. I do not defend him. I agree with the point most of the posters here make about his idiocy, his lack of morality and his apparent fascination with his zipper at the end of this clip.
Even so, I would like to point out that a lot of good, intelligent, even liberal people have Southern accents. I really hate it when people like dijetlo make these snide little parodies lumping those who have this accent with people like Tim James. Look, Southern culture has its systematic problems and its crooked, embarrassing politicians. I do not deny that. I just wonder why redneck Southerners are the only group that’s still fair game for liberals to mock and stereotype. Think about it. If you made fun of a black or Hispanic idiot politician relying heavily on her dialect or accent as a punchline or evidence of her stupidity, people would find that offensive. Racist. Not all people with Hispanic accents are idiots. Maybe part of the reason the red states have become so idealistically homogeneous in the past few decades is this blanket condemnation from the rest of the country. Maybe a lot of people there are offended by Northern attitudes toward them. Maybe some of them are offended when people try to define them based on hostile Hollywood stereotypes rooted mostly in events that happened before I was born.
And for God’s sake. Lynard Skynard was 30 years ago people. Sweet Home Alabama references still? Damn.

Mr Blifil April 25, 2010 at 11:19 pm

[re=563909]yeah[/re]: That is an impressive piece of jack-a-napery right there. You are obviously not aware that Tim James is choosing to emphasize his rural dialect as part of a shameful and cynical attempt to manipulate and deceive. In other words he is using the rural Alabama dialect AS A WEAPON. He is not being mocked as part of a broader campaign to register disapproval for mush-mouthed southern whites, he is being mocked for being an inauthentic stooge. Tim James is saying to the viewer, “I say ‘Al-uh-baya-ma,’ enveloping the word in a series of inscrutable schwas, in order to register my superiority as a white Southerner. I ain’t fancy, like some gay Jew who went to law school, I’m the ‘real deal.’” It’s not the lovable accent that we hate, it’s his smug sense of superiority, which he expresses by throwing his conscious appropriation of rural dialect in our face, the way a porn actor would present his dick to his fluffer.

So spare me the w-a-a-a-ambulance about how Southern whites can’t catch a break. If they hang around with diverse members of their communities and espouse liberal beliefs I’m charmed by their idiosyncratic stylings, and don’t have a bad word to say about them. And the Lynard Skynard reference is a perfectly valid subject for further contemplation, and even anger. It is the perfect encapsulation of the teabagger mentality, well before it’s time. You can play Mad Libs with it: “Now Abu Graib doesn’t bother me none. Does your conscience bother you, tell the truth.” Insert whichever conservative disaster you like, claim immunity from feeling shame, invert the accusation on the person feeling shame, proactively amplify the accusation in case of a reflexive denial. As a historical artifact, it’s eminently relevant. Makes sense to me….

We Yanks do tend to distinguish between human conditions that are outside an individual’s control: skin color, sexual orientation, and conditions that are by choice: being an ignorant dumbfuck who is never personally at fault for their own shitty living conditions and freely act as mindless drooling agents of the power elite by voting for any 50 point IQ policy fucktard who screams about the how the government needs to own every uterus thereby foisting big business, tax-payer raping butt-kissing republicans off on the rest of the country.

The purpose of the site IS laughing at the stupidity in politics, fair enough.
But all our easy ‘Hayseeds are so stupid they like Palin, tee hee’ bits miss the point.
