Hot For Hillary

The smash viral video "Obama Girl" inspired Taryn Southern to make this video exhorting what she considers some of the excellent qualities of Hillary Clinton.

This from Southern's website hot4hill.com:

Hi everyone!

I am so happy with the immediate response to the video. I've gotten hundreds of emails - from fans, detractors, you name it. Some people love it, some people hate it. That's comedy for you.

Just to clear up a few things, however:

1. Yes, the video IS a parody of the Obama-Girl video. I thought Obama-Girl was brilliant, so I decided to write a parody video using the only FEMALE candidate.

2. My 1st blog ("Letter to My Fellow Americans") was written tongue-in-cheek! While I do keep up on politics, I do not claim to have any serious political credentials. I only seek to entertain. =)

3. The kids - yes, the kids and their parents were all aware of the video content. Just like any other PG-13 movie, TV show, or web video with sexual innuendos, child actors and their folks are always aware of the content before they sign on. Working with all the kids was my favorite part about making the video!

What, no green slime? Who you gonna call?
============

Lee Ward:

One of your better oblique-ossities, kim.

Como se dice in inglés?

kim:

Caliente por Clinton. I mistook, you're ruminative.
=============

bryanD:

Very svelt and pretty girl.

Eyebrows not over-plucked? CHECK!

No (visible?) tattoos? CHECK!

God-given gazoongas? CHECK!

(Grace Kelly would be proud.)

bryanD:

jhow,

BTW: I do read Wizbang "Classic", banned or not. (No hard feelings)

Great Comments-(as opposed to Brains-) Blog.

Reading CCG's claim of hemophilia exempting "him" from military service will live with me always!

(Ergo: how does one discover one is hemophilic at age 18+ ???? Love your blog, Kevin!)

kim:

The clotting mechanism is a cascade, seemingly intelligently designed, and rife with subtlety. Judge not that ye be not judged.
===========================

Lee Ward:

Have you ever checked out CCG's website?

Ewwww, afterwards I wanted to take out my eyeballs and boil them in hot water to get the ick off.

mantis:

I never had kim pegged as a creationist (of which intelligent design proponents are merely a new flavor), but considering her reliance upon the assertions of hucksters in other areas, I guess it shouldn't surprise me.

Here's some background on evolution of blood clotting, and the most prominent huckster challenging it, Behe.

Lee Ward:

off topic to BryanD, who wrote: "I got banned by the Penguin, and since I'm not a compulsive WWW commenter, I'll stay close to Home.

Just curious what you did to get banned? Wizbang's comment-policing is an area of personal interest...

kim:

He whipped a little too much religiosity on Jay.
=============================

kim:

You missed the 'seemingly', mantis. I believe in evolution. I think the IDers misunderestimate the survival effect of so-called 'intelligently designed' phenomena, and fail to give enough value to the immense amount of time available.

Clotting allows preservation of the 'internal milieu' and flagellae allow mobility, both virtually incalulably linked to survival.

However, I think intelligent design should be discussed in public school science classrooms. What better example to teach about the theory of knowledge?

bD is the most informative commenter on either board.
=================================

Lee Ward:

Since when is whipping Jay a crime? I've been doing it for over a year now - heh.

kim:

By the way, mantis, BDS is not a survival advantage. What price 'Bush Lied' after Joe Wilson's fiasco yesterday?
==========================

kim:

Live anywhere near DC, Lee? You and Jay ought to do lunch.
===========================

kim:

Then publish it.
=========

mantis:

No, I thought you were being coy. You often are.

I believe in evolution.

Well, that's a relief.

However, I think intelligent design should be discussed in public school science classrooms. What better example to teach about the theory of knowledge?

There is precious little time in high school biology courses covering a vast amount of material, of which evolution is only a small part. To spend it on creationist bullshit would be a waste of time, and there are far better examples to teach the theory of knowledge (such as Lamarck vs. Darwin; which has the benefit of that both were honest scientists and were not deliberately trying to mislead).

What other subjects should be introduced in high school science classes? Alchemy in chemistry class? Astrology in physics? Superstition and magic are not science and to bother with them is a waste of students' and teachers' time.

kim:

Yes, let's not waste a little theory of knowledge on the young. Fruit flies fucking, yes, that's the ticket.
============================

mantis:

By the way, mantis, BDS is not a survival advantage. What price 'Bush Lied' after Joe Wilson's fiasco yesterday?

Well, I don't know what fiasco you're talking about (I jumped over to Maquire's site but didn't see anything obvious). In any case you once again direct bullshit "BDS" comments towards me. I knew I should have kept ignoring you. Carry on with your madness.

(Btw, in case you haven't noticed, though I've discussed it from time to time, I don't have anywhere near the obsession with Wilson/Plame/Libby you do. Life is too short.)

Lee Ward:

"Live anywhere near DC, Lee? You and Jay ought to do lunch."

Jay would never agree to meet me for lunch -- he'd never let me near his precious little rubber ducky.

Besides, he and his duck would stiff me for the 'bill' (heh) and I'm pretty sure Jay is a heavy drinker - and I know his duck is...

I've tried to make friends with Jay several times via email. It destabilizes his egosphere to no end when I'm nice to him, so since he feels more comfortable and secure in his world when I slap him around, I stick to that.

My guess is he was abused as a child, and as a result he feels love when adult males abuse him. Then he can take out his big hammer and ban them as a therapeutic response.

Sorry for the pop-psych break in the thread - please ignore...

mantis:

Yes, let's not waste a little theory of knowledge on the young. Fruit flies fucking, yes, that's the ticket.

Like I said, there are far better ways to demonstrate and teach epistemology to high school students than by introducing a dishonest line of crap specifically designed to confuse and obfuscate. Your implication that ID is the only way (or at least the best way) to do that points to a certain affinity with bullshit on your part, but that was obvious long before now.

kim:

Find me a bit of epistemology that will interest students like the ID controversy. It'd be a bit dry teaching other examples, though certainly possibly there are better examples, but none so topical.

What are you afraid of, that the arguments of the IDers will stand up under scrutiny? You give too much credibility to it when you demonize it. It's just an idea.

Why am I going to regret that last sentence?

Joe's meltdown is concealed in the Black thread.
==========================

kim:

I should apologize directly for claiming you have BDS, even though you do. In almost all other matters, you are remarkably honest.
==================

mantis:

What are you afraid of, that the arguments of the IDers will stand up under scrutiny?

They don't stand up under scrutiny. Ever. Hell, almost all of them are warmed over creationist arguments anyway, long ago debunked but bad pennies, all.

You give too much credibility to it when you demonize it. It's just an idea.

Are you familiar with the ID strategy? Their aim, since the beginning, has not been to do any scientific research to support their "theory," but rather to mount a public relations campaign the purpose of which is to get ID into classrooms. They, in essence, want to poison the well. I don't think we should let them.

I don't have absolute confidence in the ability of all science teachers to adequately traverse the minefield of misinformation in the ID movement, and the result would often be to confuse students, doing them a great disservice and hurting their chances when they arrive in university science classes.

As far as BDS, you and I know you are full of shit. There are many who are quick to blame President Bush for everything that has gone wrong anywhere, cannot credit him with any accomplishments, and generally see him as the devil. I am not among them. In fact, I rarely discuss him at all. You are full of shit.

Joe's meltdown is concealed in the Black thread.

Maybe I'll wade through.

Heralder:
Fruit flies fucking,..

Dude, where do I sign up to see some of that hawt action?

mantis:

Here you go, Heralder. Juicy.

Heralder:
It pursued a waiting virgin female. It gently tapped the girl with its leg, played her a song (using wings as instruments) and, only then, dared to lick her - all part of standard fruit fly seduction.

I have a whole new respect for genetically altered fruit flies.

oh, wait:

for the suitor in this case was not a male, but a female that researchers had artificially endowed with a single male-type gene.

Betrayed!

bryanD:

"Just curious what you did to get banned? Wizbang's comment-policing is an area of personal interest...
Posted by Lee Ward"

Kim'===s right. "Religiosity", but it wasn't "on" Jay. He just swooped/fell in.

I basically was stepping on CCG's Church Lady imitation-in-progress. (Guilty!)He went from "I'll pray for you", to "SHUT.UP." in mere minutes.

My mentioning Conspiracy between God and Satan in this age (2 harvests, mark of Cain, "God" of "this world", Christ and Anti-Christ, etc), which is documented throughout the Bible (Book of Job! HELLO! Matthew, Revelation! HELLO!HELLO!), hit a nerve. It's designed to. And not by me.

But like I said, the way Jay suddenly fell through the sheetrock (and since the subject was WAY over his head) I SUSPECT he may have been getting e-mail supplications for relief by the Bushbotischer Volkspolizei.


And CCG's site? OMFG!

"Christian Conservative Geek (that's me!)"

* I t ' s Butters! (that's me!)

bryanD:

lee:

I've been banned twice before and have been allowed back in. Not that I will be this time.

Thought I'd mention that for your notes.

Lee Ward:

Thanks, Bryan -- Maybe Jay was just having a bad hair day - duck kept him or something. Hopefully they'll let you back in.

Always appeal to Kevin's higher authority if you feel you're being treated unfairly (there or here or at any of the Wizbang sites)

kim:

An argument that can't stand up under scrutiny is going to confuse the students?

Are we teaching critical thinking, or Play-Do?

You have BDS. You believe Wilson.
============================

mantis:

An argument that can't stand up under scrutiny is going to confuse the students?

Students who are just being introduced to biology by teachers who probably don't have a degree in bio, let alone knowledge of all the cute little distortions and fabrications that the ID movement has pushed forward? Yeah, I think it would. It has sure as hell confused a lot of school boards.

Maybe save it for the AP bio classes; those kids would be fine.

Are we teaching critical thinking, or Play-Do?

Thanks to NCLB, more of the latter than the former. The tested curriculum must be covered, and there is very little time for diversions from that. I prefer a different system, and one that would allow class time to debate such issues comprehensively. That is currently only possible in private schools. I wish our public schools taught critical thinking.

You have BDS. You believe Wilson.

Really? What do I believe Wilson on? Bet you don't have a clue.

Heralder:

Wilson makes good soccer balls. I believe that. So does Tom Hanks.

Lee Ward:

Hanks makes good soccer balls? Interesting hobby... I'd have pegged him for a radio-controlled airplane kind of guy.

heh.

Heralder:

lol..I meant Hanks believes that Wilson makes good soccer balls, not that Hanks makes them.

I was thinking of Castaway when Tom Hanks is stuck on the island with nothing but a soccer ball that he names Wilson. He has some great conversations with him, he even gets angry with Wilson one time and throws him away, but then he regrets the decision and goes and finds him. Ultimately Wilson succumbs to a the ocean when Tom makes his escape at the end of the movie.

He's pretty broken up about it, because it can be argued that Wilson (and a picture of his wife) was the only thing that kept him sane.

But the loss of Wilson to the ocean is kind of a demarcation between that stage of his life and his return to real life after rescue. So it sort of makes sense cinematically.

Joe Wilson, however. No idea...I avoided that whole thing.

and uh....this comment is missing something,

oh yeah...

BDS!!!1!

mantis:

Liar!!1!

Lee Ward:

"BDS!!!1!

"Liar!!1!"

What does either of those comments have to do with radio-controlled airplanes? At least try to stay on topic!!! Sheesh...

kim:

More BDS. NCLB has helped. It's pissed off teacher's unions, though.

How easily you give up on critical thinking in public schools. Now ID is too confusing to teach, not too wrong?
========================

Heralder:

Uh, what was the topic again?

Oh yeah.

Hawt fruit fly action.

kim:

The topic is that mantis wants to ban books.
================

Heralder:

I would have thought it was the Hot for Hillary video, but ok.

Lee Ward:

I checked on YouTube -- no fruit fly fornication found -- but I'm still looking.
