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:
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.

Feb. 3, 2006 #01 Daily Update at PoliSat.Com, where satire is always commentary, but commentary isn't always satire.™
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.
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.
