Miss those knee-slapper Bushisms? The same technology that will give cancer-stricken Roger Ebert back his voice can be used to generate the voice of Dubya through the magic of Bush-o-matic.

Making him read Obama's speeches is a helluva mindfuck. And also an eerie peek into how different 2000-2008 could have been with a more intelligent leader.

"I'm telling you there's an enemy that would like to attack America, Americans, again. There just is. That's the reality of the world. And I wish him all the very best."—Washington, D.C., Jan. 12, 2009

Wow. If nothing else, this post has opened my eyes to the fact that Bush is still (speaking like) a loon.

I had him say my favorite lines from "Taxi Driver":

"Let me have it. Gimme the bread. This all you got? Reach in your sock and get the rest."

The falling tone of "maaaahhhsk" is what takes it from funny to brilliant.

Now, hearing George Bush speak in tongues is as easy as randomly mashing my keyboard and clicking generate! What an age we live in!

So this could make Ebert sound like George Bush?

He amusingly mispronounces "starvelings", if you make him sing the Internationale.

But Bushisms were already way too easy! This is like sub-zero brow political humor.

And just as effective as high brow political humor!

when everyone you have ever loved is finally gone
when everything you have ever wanted is finally done with
when all of your nightmares are for a time obscured
as by a shining brainless beacon
or a blinding eclipse of the many terrible shapes of this world
when you are calm and joyful
and finally entirely alone
then in a great new darkness
you will finally execute your special plan...

This is worth far more favorites than it has gathered so far. The opportunities for mischief here are incredible.

Is there some reason you needed to tie this to Ebert? I might be a little overly touchy when it comes to dignity issues about the man, but I kind of think that framing is in poor taste.
posted by Durn Bronzefist at 4:05 PM on February 18, 2010


The bit about CereProc putting together a custom speech synth thingie for Ebert was in the Esquire article, which was much-loved (by me as well). I don't think the mention in the OP was meant to be lulzy at all.
