Since I wrote my short assignment on something else, but showed this video in class, I thought I would blog post about it.

The Funny or Die “Rick Santorum Aborts Presidential Campaign” cleverly jokes at his ridiculous policies and his ruined reputation.  By playing at the way in which clinics try to talk many out of the abortion procedure and have the patient go through numerous guilt-giving processes, Funny or Die takes Santorum’s anti-abortion, anti-female policies and throws them back in his face.  As the ladies point out the facts that nobody would want him as a running mate and his political career might as well be over, the falsely sympathetic tone of the video also shows the fragility of female-friendly abortion clinics.
