Extremely powerful clip that I read about on Blogora. For those of you that don't read that blog, I wanted to share.

that's powerful in the way a michael moore film is powerful.
it certainly is well constructed - - but doesn't this just contribute to the stuff you talked about seeing on meet the press - - about how dem's continue to just try to be floored by how horrible bush is? and how ppl can't seem to care about his awfulness?
i think i like pink floyd.

Interesting point...although, I think that this one is a tad more factual. I think that there is manipulation and a certain amount of "Screaming" but I also think that splicing it with the quotes from the Administration does something. Sure, it's also spliced with the words "LIAR" etc...but I think that that site allows people to explore the fact that they (and Congress) may have been duped into supporting this war.

but do you think a war (bush) supporter would watch that and say - "dang, i got duped"?
or would they be more likely to say - "the war made us safer, casualties are inevitable"

Wanted to let you know that Athens is one of CNN's top 5 places to retire to. The article even shows old people right next to a shop called "fetish." So hot.

Also, you should just hold off your PhD until you're 62. Then tuition is free!
