Vermont Jackass for Valentines Day

In a pre-Super-Bowl, pre-Lingerie-Bowl launch of the sound/video "Vermont JackAss for Valentine's Day," PoliSat.Com emerges as a satirical competitor of the now-annual "Vermont Teddy Bear for Valentine" commercial. The 2006 "Vermont Teddy Bear" commercial for Valentine is similar to the 2005 version, a sound/video version of which has been preserved for posterity by the WayBack Machine (which preserves archives of the internet) at:

[http://web.archive.org/web/20050207171048/http://www.vermonteddybear.com/vdayvideo.html]

and

[http://web.archive.org/web/20050207171048/http://easylink.playstream.com/tedgarfunk/340_kbps.wmv].

PoliSat.Com produced this satirical parody without permission or cooperation of Vermont Teddy Bear (the products of which this author has gladly used to send a Teddy Bear to successfully cheer-up a friend in ill-health) as well as without the permission or cooperation of the featured characters (George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and, of course, the real "star" of the video-- Howard Dean, the Vermont Jackass.)

Will the "Vermont JackAss for Valentine's Day" sound/video prompt demands for a stuffed Vermont JackAss or the perennial Deaniac Donkey? Will it prompt demands for a CD-quality versions of the sound/video on compact disks and/or DVDs? Time will tell. Meanwhile, enjoy the internet version. Visitors not equipped with broadband may enjoy a lesser-quality but faster loading version by using the image-link to the right.

This satire/parody video is being archived at www.PoliSat.Com/VermontJackass.htm. In case you're also wondering whether PoliSat.Com will again satirize the "GoDaddy" SuperBowl ad this year as last year, you'll have to wait until after the Super Bowl, but in the interim, you can enjoy last year's parody of last-year's "Go-Daddy" SuperBowl Commercial by using the image-link to the right of this text.

Biography - Jim Wrenn

Jim is a proud descendant of 18th Century criminal exiles from England who swam to the Outer Banks when the British ship taking them to a Georgia penal colony sank in a storm near Cape Hatteras. Having the prescience to prevent their descendants from becoming "TarHeels," they immediately migrated to Virginia, where, within just a few generations they worked their way up into poverty. Jim's grandfather was the first in the family tree to see the distant horizons, but his career was cut short by severe injuries he sustained when a cousin cut down the tree.

After a brief stint in the Amry (ours) following graduation from law school, he began his legal career in the state bureaucracy but was never able to break into the federal bureaucracy. Several years later, he entered the private practice of law and co-founded a small law publishing company. Later, finding the publishing of small laws unstimulating and finding his private practice too private to be lucrative, he began writing political satire/commentary. His greatest vice is taking himself too seriously.

He wrote the definitive books on the Clinton Era Error: the Clinton Liebrary Book (pre-October, 2000), which he later updated as the Clinton Liebrary Book 2001 Edition to include Election 2000, the post-election shennanigans, and related events through August, 2001. The 2001 edition is the only known literary source that conclusively shows why Bill Clinton pardoned Susan McDougal but not Webster Hubbel. It also presciently contains the Billary/Hillary Dueling Memoirs. At every opportunity he shamelessly promotes his books for orders on-line or by fax at www.ClintonLiebraryBook.Com. He's also the Librarian at the Clinton Liebrary (www.ClintonLiebrary.Com), which owns exclusive rights to Bill Clinton's most famous speech as well as Bill Clinton's comments after revelation of the identity of Deep Throat in 2005.

As an amateur scientist as well as a scientific amateur, he de-bunks the man-is-causing-Global "Warming" theory, and predicts that by the middle of the 21st Century (when he will be safely dead) physicists will discover the obvious flaws in Einstein's Theory of Relativity, which will lead to vastly-faster-than-light travel through polarization of gravity. As a constitutional-law scholar, he's trying to teach those who hold a static, zero-sum-game view of economic and social theories to understand that "property" is not a "thing" but rather is a human right.

Although he regularly teaches Continuing Legal Education courses to lawyers, he's too-often available through he Rubber Chicken Speakers Bureau to speak on politics, satire, etc., at luncheons, dinners, root canals, funerals, etc. His speaking fees are so outrageously high they border on criminal price-gouging, but as a free-market advocate, he defends his fees on the higher moral ground of charging whatever the traffic will bear.
