Except Cohn needed more than Torts to fill her days: she wanted to be a 1L rep. Her campaign included old yard signs, law school letters of rec from other legislators, and a platform plank about using her legislative connections to help 1Ls get paying summer gigs. That would be cool, actually, given that so many 1Ls spend their first summer broke as a joke with nothing to look forward to aside from finding their 2L summer gig. Shiver.
Things got ugly, however, when old rumors surrounding her cover model shoot surfaced. Apparently.
And then she said something that violates one of my basic movie-speak rules: she got a character and film completely wrong. Just like the Chron's film critic, though he refused to admit it. She said:
"Elections at the university level are like a Reese Witherspoon movie," she told the Mercury News. "It's about being young and Greek, the Barbie and Ken of the class or something."No. Unless you mean like the beginning of her movie. Actually, there were no elections in that movie. Do you mean Election? Or do you mean Legally Blonde. Either way, you're totally wrong. None of her movies see the Ken or Barbie being rewarded. Witherspoon's roles are increasingly incorrectly incorporated into political debate and now this situation. Get it right. Homegirl does good work for the sisterhood (Cruel Intentions aside, probably).
Oopsie: I said she used letters of rec from law school - I was incorrect. They were letters of rec for the race itself. Cringggggeee.
