The second person behind the political video Web site WhoSaidYouSaid.com said Wednesday that she and her collaborator have been cracking each other up for years, and they are now doing that online.
“One of the great things about doing this project with a girlfriend is that we both bring different senses of humor to the table,” Kelly Maher said of herself and Mary Smith, current and former Denver GOP figures who launched WhoSaidYouSaid.com on Tuesday.
Maher posted her first video today, of U.S. Michael Bennet giving a speech where he stated, “We’re not making decisions for the next election cycle. This is for the next 50 years and next 100 years.”
Maher titled this post “If Sen. Bennet has his way, he’ll legislate into next century.” She then followed with this caption, “U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado claims he’s helping make legislative decisions for 100 years. 2009 + 100 = 2109. Psssst . . . Senator, aren’t you actually making the case for term limits when you are legislating past the typical human life span?”
Comparing this to Smith’s post from Tuesday on a video clip of Gov. Bill Ritter talking about political videos, a theme emerges, and that theme is sarcasm.
Maher said she and Smith started this site organically and there is no cost at this point, besides their time and wit. As of now, no one else is involved with the site.
Maher declined to specify where these videos came from or if there are certain videographers helping them in the field. She, like her colleague Smith, said people will have to wait and find out if WhoSaidYouSaid.com will go after Democrats only.
So far, the answer is yes.
