Why Aren’t You Watching Dick Morris TV???

We here at FishbowlDC have lamented the proliferation of janky online videos in the past, but that was before we saw Dick Morris explain the Civil War. Now we see the error of our ways. Dick Morris has taken the janky online video genre and turned it into an art-form. And apparently he’s doing it all from the comfort of his living room.

Sure we’ve ragged on places like USA Today and WaPo for poor production quality and lackluster personalities, but now we see that the problem with those videos was actually that they were trying too hard.

Dick Morris isn’t trying at all -and the results are amazing. Imagine the love child of Kathy Bates and Harvey Fierstein teaching history from the set of a Werther’s Original commercial. And now times that by a million. Also, you’ve got to admire a man who has mastered the art of the shameless plug. These “educational videos” are actually an elaborate marketing campaign for his children’s book! Genius! But we won’t say any more -we don’t want to spoil it for you. You really should just experience it for yourselves…

Click the pic to watch. For some (probably artistic) reason, Dick’s videos don’t embed…
