I desperately raise this point in the rankest of rank attempts to build a bridge to - a connection between - any nexus involving - ERISA and . . . Voice Immodulation Man. I need to do that in order to pretend I have found an ERISA-to-pop-culture connection and justify posting on this blog about (ahem) Voice Immodulation Man.*
And why do I do that? Because I want to know if I am the only one who's noticed that there is a real-life version of Will Ferrell's Voice Immodulation Man in the person of Republican commentator Steve Schmidt. Click on the foregoing links and see if you agree (I'm going for audible laughter, so don't hold back). Jacob Silj lives!
As an aside here, I really think that you owe it to yourselves to get a hold of the DVD, "Saturday Night Live: The Best of Will Ferrell" (the first one, not (!) Volume 2). It may well be the funniest video compilation that I have ever seen. And it has, among its various treasures, a hilarious Jacob Silj outtake.
Forgive me; I now have to go back to watching The Election.**
* Get it? - tone deaf / voice immodulation
** Not the Matthew Broderick movie, which is just Election without the "The", but, rather, the real thing, which is better than anything.
