Testing the Political Sense of Humor

For the past two weeks, I’ve been at both the Democratic convention in Denver and the Republican convention in St. Paul. I did my share of serious video reporting stuff — primers on how conventions work and how important some of the major speeches can be for the candidates and the campaigns. And I produced a three-minute mashup of both the DNC and RNC.

But I also had a lot of fun with TIME columnist Joel Stein. He’s not afraid to don a pig outfit to see how PETA does its demonstrations (and becomes the world’s worst protester), or put on a seersucker suit to hang with Ron Paul enthusiasts — and Tucker Carlson — at the Texas rep’s alternative Rally for the Republic.

Here are a few of the pieces we did:

Joel Stein: America’s Worst Protester

Joel Stein: Karaoke Speechmaker

Joel Stein: Acrobat Yogi
