And after ten chapters, including one long-ass speech about the evils of taxation, I thought we'd pull over for a piss. Proverbially speaking, of course.
So instead of me reviewing chapter eleven, Danny Bailey's big speech, instead of you having to slog through reading the big speech, I thought I'd let you hear it. [Transcript in comments.]
Below is my recreation of Danny Bailey's speech at the rally, with authentic sound effects. It's just like being there, without Hollis looming over your shoulder all night.
Let me set the scene for you:
Tonight's headliner, the illustrious Danny Bailey, now took to the stage in a swell of heavy-metal music and an ovation that rattled every shelf of glassware behind the bar.
I couldn't find a sound effect of rattling barware, so you'll just have to imagine that bit. The rest, however, remains true to the description in the book. More or less.
Give it a whirl. Download it. Put it on your iPod. Play it in your car. Hold your own teabagger rally. Or just turn out the lights, close your eyes, and pretend you're at the Stars 'n Stripes.
In today's episode of The Overton Window, Danny Bailey is played by James Daniels. Produced, directed, edited, folded and fluffed by me.
