Just Like Ann Coulter

My In Media Res post on Barely Political’s latest video, “Perfected,” a parody of Coulter’s divisive rhetoric, is available now. Check out the video and my Curator’s Note and leave a comment or two.

Post-Coffee Update: Interesting to note that I’ve grown to like “Perfected” even more than when I first wrote about it.  The song attacks Coulter’s recent comments that she wants Jews to be “perfected” by converting to Christianity.  I do think–and believed then–that “Perfected” is one of the best videos the folks at Barely Political have made, in part because it’s more explicitly critical of Coulter’s harmful contributions to our political discourse.

    Yeah, one of my writing projects is an essay on political parody videos, which is really quite fun.

    This is a funny vid, but your comments are far more incisive.

    Thanks, Jim. I still think it’s an interesting genre–hopefully I can do something thoughtful with them in my article.
