This video explaining how free contraception is a law student human right apparently was not parody.  This video of law students warning 16-year-olds not to go to law school is a parody, a take off on this 16-year-old me video.  (h/t @GabrielMalor)

[Update:  Strange, the video now redirects to an "alternate" version, not the original...

I guess the comparison to Obama was inevitable, and NBC goes full “deja vu” on the new Mayor of Ithaca, Svante Myrick.

I wouldn’t pigeonhole him yet; he ran an insurgent campaign against the entrenched Ithaca Democratic political establishment and also defeated the designated Progressive candidate.  He won with a lot of help from students.

“Some people are much more into conspiracies” …

And in an attempt to prove there is no conspiracy, Paul has just released an ad attacking everyone, his first attack on Romney since Iowa (aka The Stone Ages).

Mitt Romney had a very good line in his victory speech last night (emphasis mine):

Weve seen enough of this President over the last three years to know that we dont need another four.  President Obama believes he is unchecked by our Constitution.  He is unresponsive to the will of our people.  ...

Endgame assessment:

Very good night for Romney, he has all but beaten back the Santorum surge.  It’s hard to know if outspending Santorum did the trick; Romney spent only about 1/3 going after Santorum in Michigan as he spent going after Newt in Florida, and didn’t need to bring in the establishment...

One of my focus races is the attempt by Republican Brendan Doherty to unseat Democrat David Cicilline in RI-01, my home district.

Cicilline is very unpopular due to the mess he left behind when he was the Mayor of Providence.  While Cicilline was able to hide the problems when he ran for...

There is a prime opportunity in the Indiana Republican primary to elect a solid conservative, Richard Mourdock, and to retire Obama’s favorite Republican, Richard Lugar, who has an abysmal voting record.

I will be supporting Mourdock, and I hope you will help with this important race.

I first wrote about Mourdock back in November.  Since...
