Masterful Troll is Masterful

Here I am sitting in front of my computer beating the everloving shit out of the concept of lulz, the focus of the dissertation chapter I’m currently writing, and what to my wondering eyes did appear? Why lulz of course, beautiful, breathtaking lulz. And not just any old lulz, but Presidential lulz. American Trolling Treasure Stephen Colbert just released –well, his Super PAC just released– its first attack ad against Mitt Romney. It’s narrated by John Lithgow! You know, Trinity from Dexter!
So here you have an actor who played a serial killer –and not just any serial killer, a serial killer locked in battle with a fellow serial killer– narrating a half-fake political attack ad that accuses the Republican frontrunner, an actual automaton, of murdering (corporations, aka people) for sport. I can smell the Google-bomb from here. And it is sweet my friends, it is sweet like Liberty.
