Who you calling parody?
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 which appears unavailable. Copyright claim? It changed since late this afternoon. The original had over 100k hits, the new one just a few hundred. If anyone figures out what happened, please post in comments.]
Elsewhere in that uncertain area between reality and fiction:
- Conservative mole at NY Times? No, just a lapse in their judgment.
- This algae biodiesel will be cost effective (if gas prices rise to $33)(h/t reader Patricia).
- Josh Mandel. I didn’t know much about him.
- How long until Nancy Pelosi calls David Cicilline and says “take one for the team”?
- Olympia Snowe caused a mess in Maine politics by waiting so late to announce (or maybe it’s a good thing).
- Scott Walker doing very well in Rasmussen poll, not so well in PPP poll.
- Ricky is tearing apart the social conservative and libertarian wings of the Party
- More to follow, if and when I re-enter Earth’s atmosphere.

Big Romney Blunder.
I have to laugh at the 16-year-old me law school video.
You have no idea how many top lawyers have said that they went to law school because the engineering courses were just too hard.
Not as many as chose journalism school because math/science/rational thinking was way harder than going to the mall and being popular.
I know a Yale, Harvard Law School/Review-President who said that.
A different take on the Individual Mandate
Hey, math is HARD…
And some of us were taught by the crappy education system we had no aptitude for it.
And isn’t a parody two matched dy…?
Rags – Don’t know if you are old enough to remember “The New Math” program which consisted of handing kids a self-study course and telling them “you are on your own.”
Then they wondered why math scores started going down.
Yeh, Say, I am an “old guy”, and have kids who went through the new math.
I don’t get how that video was a parody of anything.
I thought it was a video promoting law school.
Maybe if they all had condoms on their heads it would be a parody.
I looked and found this one, which has kids/young 20’s telling their sad tale of woe about law school (and a law professor 😉 ): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y05HnXomG88. It is labelled “alternate”….is that the original one?
In the description, they put a disclaimer that they are NOT suggesting melanoma is not a serious disease, then they point to the melanoma group that made the original video. Sounds like that 501(c) organization did NOT have a sense of humor about this satirical take on their ad. 🙁
Probably a lib who is really Really ANGRY about that contraception ban!! /sarc
In the important stuff (to me anyway), I saw the PPP poll and it appears to have oversampled Democrats and union members. Rasmussen, while not exactly an arch-conservative does seem to have a better polling method. And the spread between the two polls is gigantic, while Rasmussen tends to mirror a recent Gallup poll.
I remember all of the cozy private meetings Obama had with Snowe. I wonder if he has promised her a position in his regime. She talks about still having influence and power even though she is out of office. And the Dems gain a Senate seat. What a rotten slimy creature if she has struck a bargain like this.
Oh man, I know so many democrat college grads who are going to law school thinking they are hot @#$%, but aren’t especially intelligent, so they think their prospects are still as good as they would have been 10-15 years ago. (At least I think that’s their thinking – for a lot of young adults I feel like going to law school is a self-esteem boost for them.)
Obama loses first debate (to Gingrich) on energy
wodiej – do you have a direct link to the “debate” on Newt’s site?
Found a video link to the “debate” on another site – so I copied the link – Here it is:
Gingrich lays out his path to victory
Newt vs Santorum vs the Tea Party
That says it all wodiej. Thanks for sharing it, I hope you’ve already spread it far and wide on the WWW:)
yep, I am working on it right now. 🙂
Fantastic video wodiej!! I love Newt’s excitement over the Tea party, direct opposite of dour Rick… Thank you for posting this!! Say What is right – this needs to be spread widely.
I normally don’t agree with nor like Ann Coulter but she actually wrote a column yesterday that makes sense:
The Problem with Santorum
What’s Up with Newt Gingrich? Gallups daily tracking poll for one thing
Most probably have seen this one: Santorum on small gov’t…unbelievable
“Ricky is tearing apart the social conservative and libertarian wings of the Party.”
Uhhh, not so much. Actually, his appeal to just a subset of the GOP electorate may be helping Romney. And values voters may be discovering something that African Americans in the Democratic Party have already learned … http://bit.ly/qVdDUt
