I finally watched the KELO interview with Matt Varilek and Jeff Barth discussing the payroll tax.
I thought Barth did a decent job. Varilek was not easy to listen to.
Cue Varilek’s aloof arching right eye brow and unenthusiastic voice, so bland it would be a hindrance to him getting a job with public radio… and prepare yourself for some classic Varilek quotes:
And to get 89 senators to agree on anything is about as common as a four-leaf clover these days,” Varilek said.
Or maybe this clever line he delivered in his announcement video:
“Now with congress about as popular as a toothache, you might wonder why anyone would want to join that institution.”
Apparently Varilek is full of quirky little similes. Everytime he goes on camera they come forth unenthusiastically but with ease.
Keep your ears out for more classic Varilek quotes. And don’t be shy about recommending a few for Mr. Analogy to test out before his next television interview!
