I posted about the video at Less Wrong, and so far, no one else thinks the video is funny. Is it that very few people think it's funny, or just that the humor preferences at LW are unusual?

A more satisfying history

Michelle Bachman extols "John Quincey Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country". (2:30) It would be nice if there were a zombie or possibly vampire Adams who didn't go to his grave until the Emancipation proclamation, or is possibly still working to prevent the slavery of undocumented people, but the real world has this annoying historical inflexibility.

Video reference thanks to asim. He got it to embed, but that doesn't seem to be feasible any more.
