Is sarcasm effective?

Watch these two videos and you tell me.

The original (and very serious) Tim James for Governor ad:

The spoof:

H/T: Abraham Piper.

Sarcasm is effective in only a limited way. You can only either nitpick at details, and then blow them out of proportion for a joke. Or, you can make broad sweeping generalizations about the subject matter. It is rare that you get any real meat out of it.

The second video effectively points out the vast diversity that makes America a great place in the realms of cuisine and marketing. He makes Tim James sound like he is arguing for Homogenization, and then points out how silly homogenization is. So, I suppose it is effective in that much.

It should also be remembered that Alabama was the name of a Native American tribe long before it was an English only state. Maybe we should change the name of the state to something more Anglo, since American = Anglo.

That's an ironic point about "Alabama" being a Native American word and tribe.
