It's a Good Life - Intro

Tonight's story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a map of the United States, and there's a little town there called Washington DC. On a given morning a little over 4 years ago, a monster had arrived in the village. Just by using his mind, he took away the automobiles, the electricity, the machines - because they displeased him - and he moved an entire nation back into the dark ages - just by using his mind. He took away the freedom to choose anything except for abortions – because these freedoms displeased him – just by using his mind.  He set the nation on a course of fiscal collapse – because Hayekian economics displeased him – just by using his mind.
Now I'd like to introduce you to some of the people in Washington DC. This is Mr. Axelrod. It's in his domain that the monster resides. This is Mrs. Obama. And this is Mr. Biden, who probably had more control over the monster in the beginning than almost anyone. But one day he forgot. He began to speak the truth aloud. Now, the monster doesn't like the truth, so his mind snapped at him, turned him into the smiling, vacant thing you're looking at now. He speaks the truth no more. And you'll note that the people in Washington DC, have to smile. They have to think happy thoughts and say happy things because once displeased, the monster can wish them into a cornfield or change them into a grotesque, walking horror. This particular monster can read minds, you see. He knows every thought, he can feel every emotion. Oh yes, I did forget something, didn't I? I forgot to introduce you to the monster. This is the monster. His name is Barack Obama. In the words of Mr. Reid, he is a clean, articulate black man, with sweeping, hopeful rhetoric and sweet guileless eyes. He’s not the Messiah the left had hoped for, but he is the Messiah they deserve.  But when those eyes look at you, you'd better start thinking happy thoughts, because the mind behind them is absolutely in charge. This is the Twilight Zone.


  1. Awesome. We do live in the Twilight Zone and I want to get out!

  2. That's gotta be based on the episode about the little boy who has a whole town terrorized. That was a good, if creepy, episode.

  3. For those who haven't seen it, or have forgotten the intro:
