Will Durst

 

Outraged and outrageous, Durst is as current as today’s headlines, as accurate as a sniper, and universally acknowledged by even his peers as the nation’s foremost political comic.

A Midwestern baby boomer with a media- induced identity crisis, Durst, according to the New York Times is “quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today.” This equal opportunity offender is exceptionally adept at swatting both partisan political piñatas upside their heads.

Hey guys,

Will Durst with a few choice word about President Obama plugging the Affordable Care Act on Zach Galifianakis's internet comedy show. Not late night, not basic cable, an internet show. Looks like the Chief Executive is working his way down the marketing food chain. Won't be long before he's wearing a giant syringe costume twirling a sign on Pennsylvania Ave.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words about Arizona governor Jan Brewer vetoing SB 1062, the legislation giving legal cover to businesses denying services based on the operator's religious beliefs. Yes indeed, the bigot bill went down. And the disappointment rumbling through the Evangelical community has caused snakes to be mishandled all the way to Tennessee.

Hey guys, WIll Durst here with a few choice words about awards season. You'd best be advised to hunker in a bunker wearing a Kevlar overcoat, because gold plated statues are being tossed about like air kisses at a gown fitting. Like clouds of bathroom hair spray in the Beverly Hill bathroom during the nominee luncheons. Like jaded eyes at a press screening of Transformers 4.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a shout-out to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for suggesting the feds might finally try to help out states that legalize pot by allowing their dispensaries to use banking services. Way to go Super AG. That's so bitchingly righteous of you.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words about plastic bread. I'm against it. And formaldehyde rinsed coffee beans? Not a fan. Flame retardants in my cupcakes? That's a big ol' negativo.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words, about this - the beginning of the new year - and the grand old tradition of we professional commentators trotting out the tried but true 'ye olde predictions' piece.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here, with a few choice words concerning my annual descent into password hell. A lot of us are taking our cues from the IT experts who encourage the general populace to change passwords once a year - like smoke alarms or high school girlfriends. Meaning now is when the brain-wracking begins to come up with a new password for 2014.

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words about the liberal exodus off the presidential bandwagon - which is approaching klaxon fire drill evacuation levels.

Government’s closed, everybody! Go home. Except Congress, that is, whose members are still getting paid, classified as “essential workers.” Although right now, neither one of those words seems very apt or ept. Unapt and inept is more like it. Inapt? Unept?

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words about Labor Day. You know it's been around since 1894, when Grover Cleveland signed it into law six days after the end of the Pullman Strike, during which federal troops killed about 30 strikers. So Labor Day was kind of make up sex between the government and the American worker. Flowers and candy, anyhow.

Hey guys, 

Will Durst here to ask the burning question that's on the lips of pretty much every American today-and that question is, who's going to be the democratic presidential nominee in 2016? Because politically, not enough stuff is going on right now, so it's critical we gaze down the road a bit and try to figure out what's gonna happen a scant 38 months down the line. And it makes sense!

Hey guys,

Will Durst here with a few choice words about California, which is so incredibly superior to every other state in the union, that it's not even close to funny, right? We don't mean to sound conceited, it's just hard when you're so much better than everyone.

Hey guys, Will Durst here with a few choice words about Florida.

Hey guys,

Will Durst with a few choice words about the giant brouhaha resulting from Texas troopers confiscating tampons from female legislator gallery members during a debate on a bill that would outlaw most abortions in the state.

Dear US Citizen.

Please accept our most egregiously sincere apologies for the difficulties and inconveniences the secret monitoring of your phone records and email and GPS units and foreign travel and bank accounts and yes, even your snail mail has evidently caused.

A few choice words about the Republicans releasing their 100-page report detailing why the last Presidential campaign was dead on arrival. Some say it's a comprehensive post-election review, while others call it an autopsy. But fairytale might be more like it, with the general theme finding nothing wrong with the party's message – the problem is all in the delivery.

A few words here about the recently resigned Pope. (It doesn't matter who you are, that's always going to be at the top of your resume). 

Thank God we made it to the new year. And now we're deep enough into it that many of us have occasionally remembered to write 2013 on our checks. As a public service, we have decided to help out with a couple of resolutions that should have been made of for this, the fourth year of the second decade of the 21st century, but probably weren't...

It's ugly out there, people! As expected, following the holiday recess, we're seeing a lot of bluster and bombast building up on the beltway and that has managed to slow progress on every budget deal ramp to a virtual crawl. Three or four 18-wheelers full of election day rancor have overturned. And as you might have imagined, rubber-necking has resulted in not so tender fender benders.
