POLITical speeches as karAOKE = POLITAOKE.

Now you too can deliver the great rhetoric filled speeches of today’s most important politicians in this audience participation performance!

Politicians are actors, deliverers of words cleverly written by high paid political scientists working as speech writers sent to them via teleprompters. Other times they are professional improvisers, stringing together the current events jargon into sound bits and phrases that are perfect for being cut into newspapers, radio shows and television. But their words, whether powerful, ridiculous or down right wrong, belong to us. Politaoke provides the audience a platform to perform, mock and finally hear and see clearly what their politicians say.

Completely non-partisan, Politaoke allows the audience to decide how to interpret each politician’s words, whether serious or in a sarcastic manner. The politician’s speeches and interviews are provided, word for word, only edited into sections (songs) of 1 – 8 minutes. A series of debates, interviews and television appearances are also provided as duets. In celebration of the upcoming election, speeches from current presidential candidates Barack Obama, John McCain, Chuck Baldwin, Bob Barr, Cynthia McKinney, Brian Moore, Gloria La Riva, Ralph Nader, et al. as well as the showstopper George W. Bush Jr. will be included in the line up.
