Jerry Labriola Old Spice Ad Politican: http://www.votejerry2010.com. Politician Jerry Labriola in a funny political ad that is a parody to the Old Spice commercial. Jerry has become the new Old Spice Man to help retire Rosa DeLauro in this upcoming election for the third district in Connecticut.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the practice of “Rick-rolling”, it is an Internet meme involving the music video for the 1987 Rick Astley song “Never Gonna Give You Up”. The meme is a bait and switch: a person provides a Web link they claim is relevant to the topic at hand, but the link actually takes the user to the Astley video. The URL can be masked or obfuscated in some manner so that the user cannot determine the true source of the link without clicking (and thus satisfying their curiosity). When a person clicks on the link given and is led to the web page he/she is said to have been “Rickrolled”. By extension, it can also mean playing the song loudly in public in order to be disruptive.

Is McCain Palin’s Bitch?
Description: The inside story on how a panicked McCain made a desperate call to the Alaskan governor to bail him out.
Reaction: tightly edited, funny, good look and impression of both characters. This one from Lisa Nova is the clear winner.
This comedic abortion has gotten a lot of play on right leaning and non-political blogs for its…less than great attempt at humor starring Mr Palin.

All right, we’ve stopped checking for our Obama text. It ain’t coming. But we got the next best thing- a Joe Biden youtube video in our inbox, encouraging us to get out the vote. While the Senator from Delaware is sticking to his new “hope, change, hope” talking points, we turned on the closed captioning. Prepare for his speech tonight by watching what he’s really saying today.
