This is the true story … of eight presidential candidates … picked to live in a house … work together and have their lives taped … to find out what happens … when people stop being polite … and start being real … The Real World.
The camera opens on Michele Bachman, sitting at the table yet staring off to the right.
Bachman: When Mitt presented his house chore plan I admit I was skeptical, particularly when he mandated that all housemates take equal share in the work. It sounds a bit like Obamunism, you know. So I went to Tim, umm T-Paw, to see what he thought about it.
The scene changes to earlier that day in the kitchen. Tim Pawlenty is washing dishes when Bachman comes up beside him and begins to speak.
Bachman: So, T-Paw, what do you think about Romney’s plan? Do you agree that we should take turns washing dishes, folding clothes, and cleaning bathrooms? I mean, if I have to clean up after Newt, Lord help me…
Pawlenty: Yeah, I totally agree. Down with ObamaRomunism!
Bachman: Exactly. We’ve got to fight this thing! No mandates!
Later that day the candidates are sitting around the table eating another meal of Godfather’s pizza, but it’s obvious that things are a bit strained. Newt Gingrich finally breaks the ice.
Gingrich: So, T-Paw, what do you think about the chore sharing plan introduced by Mitt.
Pawlenty (glancing nervously at Romney): Um, I umm…
Bachman is staring at him across the table mouthing, “ObamaRomunism.”
Everyone turns and looks at him expectedly.
Pawlenty: I umm, you know, Obama’s really an evil guy.
Gingrich: But T-Paw, what about ObamaRomunism?
Pawlenty: Umm, I don’t know about that. Obama sucks. So, how ’bout those Twins?
