Legal Insurrection Video of the Year (Reader Poll)

Legal Insurrection Video of the Year (Reader Poll)

It’s getting towards that time of the year when we start selecting the Best Of.

2012 was the first year in which we started focusing on videos, thanks in large part to Anne joining us in June.  A couple of our videos changed the national dialogue, if only for a moment.

Hopefully original video production will increase dramatically next year. That’s part of the plan.

I have selected several videos, some original to LI some taken from elsewhere but edited to highlight certain important newsworthy content.  Many, but not all, concerned Elizabeth Warren. (added) These are videos run at LI and which were created by LI. This is not an all-around Video of the Year type award.

They are all available on the LI YouTube channel.

Please vote below. You can make up to three choices.

Too bad the one with the Obamaphone Lady [“You gots to gets a free Obamaphone”] isn’t available – typifies the intelligence and rationale of the typical Obama voter, part of Romney’s 47%.

    I think this is video broken or exclusive to Legal Insurrection. I don’t recall who broke the “Obamaphone” video offhand.

WHAT, no Newt?!?!

If cumulative voting is allowed, put me down as three votes in favor of Fauxcahontas in Full Retreat (Elizabeth Warren runs … ).

It’s one of my all time faves. 🙂

Maybe there should be Academy Award-like categories.

For example:

1) Best Redskins quarterback pass protection against a blitzing female citizen journalist.

2) Most irritating white hipster screaming at a safe and easy target to impress his dorky hipster buddies who wouldn’t be nearly so brave if that target looked a bit more like Mike Tyson.

LukeHandCool (who likes the multimedia flourish the videos give LI, and who thinks that, if the Professor ever gives Luke’s idea of a LI summer convention in Las Vegas a try, Mrs. Jacobson and Anne and other ladies could form a protective pass protection pocket around the shy Professor, blocking attempts to rush LI’s quarterback with their charm. And who on earth wouldn’t love the sight of the Professor playing Craps for the first time, as his readers surrounded the table and chanted, “Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!”?)

I would tack an additional 10,000 dollars on my student loans to see a lakoff Friedman debate.

Warren’s arrogant “They’re not for you” gets my vote. Nothing better displays her contempt for us.

Lakoff. It explains the bankruptcy of “you didn’t built it”. Acknowledging that we don’t live in anarchy doesn’t imply that the government can grow without limit.

On the good side, these were great finds from the best blogger out there.

On the dark side, not a single one represents a victory. Warren won. Gingrich lost. Romney lost. What a frustrating year.
