The wrong video

As I noted in my post about Obama’s acceptance speech, even my husband was put off by the pre-speech video, which he found artificial, pretentious and uninspiring.  Turns out his instincts were good, because they showed the wrong video.  This was the one they meant to show:

    They got too serious at the end and didn’t use Obama’s funniest gafes and clips.

    I happened upon this looking for books. What a surprise to find a site so focused, no room for discussion here…won’t return.

    Ha! Gotta LOVE the Daily Show. They consistently get it right.

    I don’t do the videos – no sound working makes them pretty meaningless – but this is supposed to give a good idea of Palin’s debating skills. It’s about an hour long, so more for reference than leisurely viewing. Looks like the site may be interesting as well..

    From the NY Times:

    In choosing Sarah Palin and bidding for Clinton supporters, John McCain risked undercutting his case against Barack Obama.

    Translation for the non-NYT-addled:

    In attacking Sarah Palin as McCain’s VP choice, Barack Obama risks further alienating Clinton supporters and pointing out his own slim credentials for the office he seeks.
