Jul 21, 2014 Olo commented on Which Was Your Favorite New Weird Al Video?.
"Lame Claim to Fame" was the most enjoyable video to watch, but "Sports Song" is probably the most clever. I hope the Sounders fans take it up.

"Word Crimes" could have been much, much better; I has a sad.

I'd never heard of the artists or songs he's parodying, but that's mostly been the case since Off The Deep End.

@5: "my second question after how are you is where are you from."

What part of "the Seattle Freeze" don't you get?

@45 Actually, I missed the parallel construction entirely. I don't see what paralegals have in common with nurses, primary teachers, psychologists, and social workers.

@29: Amanda Marcotte's got you covered.

@33: I think there should be more scholarships encouraging men to go into nursing, teaching younger children, paralegals, psychology, and social work...

One of these things is not like the others.

@14 Closed primaries are only marginally better than open primaries, but at least they don't permit the outright fraud that our "Top Two" system encourages. Low-turnout elections like primaries are too easily influenced by money. If your goal is consistency between party principles (identifiable branding) and a candidate's positions, you should nominate your candidates at party conventions where greater influence is given to those who donate time rather than money.

Y'know, we wouldn't have this problem if we stopped publicly financing primary elections that are under-participated and therefore easily swayed by corporate money. If we made the parties pay for their own nominating conventions, Tom would have to call himself GOP. Open primaries lead to false advertising.
