Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.
That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)
DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.

Man I love these “Downfall” subtitle parodies so much!
And bonus points for the Minnesota/Michele Bachmann references at the end. She is sooooo crazy.
Now that was a good one. Yes this video gets beat to death but each dialog change is priceless.
For those of us off the media track, what is the original title of this masterpiece?
I love it!
The clip is from the German film Downfall which follows Hitler’s last days. The scene it shows is where Hitler learns that the Red Army is approaching Berlin and there aren’t enough troops to hold the back, too many have to stay on the other front and fight the other Allies.
Now as for the clip itself…
It seems a little idealistic. I’d never underestimate the power that fear and hatred can breed and just how many pundits will line up to portray anything Obama does as pure and absolute evil, even if he brings down a kitten stuck in a tree, it will still be motivation for a foaming at the mouth rant by Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.
And yes, nice Bachamann reference. She’s not as much as lawmaker as an escaped mental patient somehow elected as one…
It’s a fragment of Der Untergang, a german movie (2004) about the last ten days of Hitler’s life. If you haven’t seen it yet, I’d definitely recommend it.
And yes, nice
BachamannPelosi reference. She’s not as much as lawmaker as an escaped mental patient somehow elected as one…
fixed it for you
So you don’t think Bachmann is insane? Lets see:
She is refusing to fill in the census.
She equates homosexuality with pedophilia.
She has called for revolution against a government she has sworn to protect and defend.
She actually believes she could be the first woman president.
She offered to slit her wrists if health care passed.
There is so much more but with material this good, crazy is the least we could be calling her. Pelosi may have some issues but Bachmann is batshit, loopy, over-the-top insane.
Many thanks for the reference.
