go balloons!

Everybody has probably heard about Don Mischer by now, right?

What? You haven’t? Weren’t you watching the Democratic convention? There’s a possibility that Kerry could become the leader of this nation, and you didn’t even want to hear what he’s all about?

You disgust me.

Don’t worry about it too much though, cause I didn’t watch it either.

Well, since you haven’t been doing your homework, Don Mischer was the producer of the whole convention. Everything that didn’t involve content was his responsibility, including balloons. It turns out Don is very passionate about balloons, as everyone watching John Kerry’s speech would know. You see, Don accidentally made it on the air just as John Kerry’s speech was ending, and announced the following:

“Go balloons, go balloons! Go balloons! I don’t see anything happening. Go balloons! Go balloons! Go balloons! Standby confetti. Keep coming, balloons. More balloons. Bring it- balloons, balloons, balloons! We want balloons, tons of them. Bring them down. Let them all come. No confetti. No confetti yet.

No confetti. All right, go balloons, go balloons. We need more balloons. All balloons! All balloons! Keep going! Come on, guys, lets move it. Jesus! We need more balloons. I want all balloons to go, goddammit. Go confetti. Go confetti. More confetti. I want more balloons. What’s happening to the balloons? We need more balloons.

We need all of them coming down. Go balloons- balloons? What’s happening balloons? There’s not enough coming down! All balloons, what the hell! There’s nothing falling! What the [expletive deleted] are you guys doing up there? We want more balloons coming down, more balloons. More balloons. More balloons”

  2. Though the actual mention of his appearance and the fact that he cursed on air can be found just about everywhere, the actual word for word transcript along with an mp3 soundclip can only be found (as far as I can tell), on the Drudge Report.

    And now it can also be found here, I suppose.
