A Dictatorship of the Hip

My apologies for the old video, but after watching this I take back both of the laughs Scrubs ever got out of me.

“Rock the Vote,” which they refer to at the end, is the group that made this gem, threatening to withhold sex from any guy who opposes socialized healthcare.

While Ron Paul, the Tea Parties, various liberty candidates have benefitted from a youthful surge of populist anger that is authentic and principled, the hip MTV crowd continues to create these contrived ads in an effort to keep the young in their own camp. Granted, polls consistently show that youths are disproportionately liberal; nevertheless, groups like YAL have much more to offer than the trendy but vapid “Rock the Vote”-ers. Because while idealism is a trademark of youth, this bunch continues to stand for the status quo.
