Patterico's Pontifications


Sockpuppet Friday, Friday, Friday—the Obama 2012 Edition!

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sock puppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself, a lot.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.


Hey guys, you know what it is?  It’s Friday, Friday, Friday…

Honestly I don’t know why people got so worked up about that video.  It’s a vanity video.  Yeah, it’s not very good, but that’s how these vanity things work.  If you want to be annoyed at anyone, don’t be annoyed with this thirteen year old girl.  Be annoyed with the vanity company that takes the money from parents with too much money and just enough love to support their daughter whether she is good enough, or ready, to do this for a living or not.

I call it the Puritanism of non-suckitude.  They say a Puritan lays awake at night worried that someone somewhere is having a good time.  A “non-suckitude Puritan” worries that somewhere someone sucks and takes it as a personal offense that the suck even exists.  I prefer to just not pay attention to that which sucks in the first place, but hey if a bunch of mall-bopping girls buy this crap, what do I care? It’s not my problem.

But that isn’t the front and center frivolity for Friday.  It’s this, the first ad for Obama’s reelection…

And funny, I don’t think it’s making a very effective case. Heh.

Hammer him early and often, because this suckitude is definitely our problem.

Hat tip: Hot Air.

  1. I hate you, Aaron, for linking the Rebecca Black video.

    I hate you.

  2. … therefore I am going to start a war in another country without even seeking Congressional approval.

    President Obama (e7d72e)

  3. I don’t even know you anymore, Barry.

    Senator Obama (e7d72e)

  4. Where do you get off going to war without Congressional approval?

    Senator Clinton (e7d72e)

  5. Is that music video a joke? It’s impossible to listen to. fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun

    Dustin (c16eca)


    Rebecca Black (00428f)

  7. Must be April Fool’s Day, because SPQR (#1) agree.

    And no, I don’t have a problem with Rebecca Black, the girl, per se. But let me respond to this:

    but hey if a bunch of mall-bopping girls buy this crap, what do I care?

    Because you’ll get more of it. On the radio, in TV, in popular culture….

    Kman (5576bf)

  8. Here’s the unplugged version. Really.

    non-suckitude Puritan (00428f)

  9. Oh, it’s a real music video.


    Hey, it’s practically innocent, as far as I can tell. I couldn’t get through it because it’s not musical.

    If this sells, that’s great, compared to Lady Gaga’s latest ripoff of Madonna.

    This is Disney? I assume it is if ABC is pushing her. If so, she will be wearing a g string and in rehab within the decade.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  10. Kman

    There’s always been crappy music, and there will always be crappy music. complaining about it solves nothing.

    see item #1.

  11. Here’s the unplugged version. Really.

    Thanks puritan. My ears are bleeding now.

    Kman (5576bf)

  12. :)

    My favorite part of the original video is the rap guy. Does anyone think that he’s going to the same “party” as the teenyboppers that Friday? Hope not.

    carlitos (00428f)

  13. AW:

    There’s always been crappy music, and there will always be crappy music. complaining about it solves nothing.

    I suppose, although that can be said about just about anything one doesn’t like: taxes, democrats, republicans, liberals, conservatives, etc.

    On the other hand, you’re probably too young to remember the backlash against disco, and how the forces against mediocrity eventually won out (at least for a few years).

    Kman (5576bf)

  14. Complaining about Republicans and Democrats is political discourse that absolutely does affect the world, as our politics evolve over time with elections.

    No, that isn’t really like complaining about modern music, which I’m only dimly aware of anyway.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  15. On the other hand, you’re probably too young to remember the backlash against disco, and how the forces against mediocrity eventually won out (at least for a few years).

    I’m hurting myself laughing. I may crack a rib. I’m picturing Kman in a ’80’s hair band.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  16. Kman you ignorant.

    DohBiden (984d23)

  17. It is absolutely incomprehensible that anyone could find any artistic value at all in the inane lyrics of that “Friday” song. So, to cleanse your musical palates, I will leave you with some great lyrics from the Beatles.

    Woke up, got out of bed
    Dragged a comb across my head
    Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
    And looking up, I noticed I was late

    Found my coat and grabbed my hat
    Made the bus in seconds flat
    Found my way upstairs and had a smoke

    Paul McCartney (1db6c5)

  18. I’m picturing Kman in a ’80′s hair band.

    I was! Drums and keyboards. We sucked.

    (Ah, hair. Those were the days…..)

    Kman (5576bf)

  19. Anyone else picture kmart with a mullet, pronstache, tie-dyed shirt, Birkenstocks, playing ultimate frisbee and hackey sack?

    Michelle Robinson Obama (d09837)

  23. Miley if you looked like Helen Thomas your groupies would throw you under the bus.

    And Moochelle Otwinky i’d like to see you try bringing the SS into a crime infested neighborood.

    DohBiden (984d23)

  26. Why do I always have to kick it ‘n the back seat, Friday or not?

    Did you know I saw FDR on TV in 1929 and did you know that Thursday is one day before Friday?

    Joe Biden (f060a0)

  27. If you’re having trouble getting that Rebecca Black tune out of your head as I am, I have a solution:

  29. I love flipping off people. It’s great to be the Pres. Here’s another one for you Hillary.

    His imperial majesty (0cd6a2)

  30. Ok. I guess I have to charge this woman for threats, like bombing, shooting, I know where you live, etc. After all the Wisconsin Attoney General just called me to the carpet on this. Don’t worry Kathy, I’ll cut you a deal. No jail time.
    Thank God you didn’t threaten Obama.

  31. What’s a guy got to do around here to get a laugh. Besides getting naked?

    Joe Biden (f060a0)

  32. Please Joe, don’t do that. I’ll just be embarrased becasue it is so small.

  33. Missing C & D Letter – Update 32

    Practicing my ankle snapping and waiting for that letter Patterico can’t deliver.

    Also waiting to hear back from the investigator on those trumped up identity theft charges I decided to harass Patterico with at work.

    Is anybody still listening?

  37. _____________________________________

    the inane lyrics of that “Friday” song.

    The hilariously dorky part is “gotta make my mind up which seat can I take…” That along with the preceding words of “front seat…back seat,” her explaining that Thursday is before Friday, and Sunday is after Saturday, along with the earnest smile of the young songwriter, adds to the unintended humor.

    Yeah, it’s not very good, but that’s how these vanity things work.

    Speaking of “suckitude” and vanity, do those things explain why “Saturday Night Live” — which I heard some people discussing on a radio show this morning — is still on the air? Totally baffling why something so truly sucky and decades past its prime somehow manages to hang on. Based on the peculiar buzz it generates — including among those in the world of media, politics and entertainment — NBC’s late-night program apparently continues to be watched by those who one wouldn’t think would be so hard up for comedy and entertainment.

    At least a 13-year-old girl has an excuse for her “suckitude.” What excuse do fully grown adults employed by a network TV show have?

    But he ain’t.

    As much as all too many wish to believe (and yeah, that be mighty fookin easy … to believe). He launched the attack on Libya, while standing atop foreign soil, after scurrying outta D.C. [we likes ta call that a clue (as relates the underlying theme/mechanics/intent of his actions)]. He knows what he’s doing. Yeah, he does. And his doings can be described, in their entirety, in one word.
