Weekly Video Roundup

Posted on Jan 12, 2007

This week, our collection of Truthdig-flavored videos includes GOP senators grilling Condi on Bush’s troop escalation plan; a brutally ironic film reminding us that Saddam Hussein was a 40-year CIA asset; and “The Simpsons” on global warming.

No. 1: Senators Grill Condi on “Surge”

Republican senators smell so much BS in Condi’s defense of Bush’s troop escalation plan that MSNBC correspondent David Shuster practically hyperventilates in pointing it out.

No. 2: Keith Takes Bush to the Cleaners

Olbermann’s critique of Bush’s troop escalation plan climaxes with a devastating takedown of “The President Who Cried Wolf.”

No. 3: The Life and Death of a 40-Year CIA Asset

This quick, brutally ironic movie reminds us that America was for Saddam long before we were against him. What’s more, we were apparently for his invasion of Kuwait before we were against it.

No. 4: “Inconvenient” Simpsons

As usual, “The Simpsons” cuts to the quick of the global warming “debate.”

I cannot possibly be the only person in America scared shitless by what is about to be wrot by this madman in the White House?  I can’t be the only grandmother fearing for the lives and future of her grandchildren, not to mention what is left of her own life!  Should I be praying to be ground zero?  Can anyone stop this madness? A non-binding resolution isn’t going to cut it.  Will our generals stand up and say NO! NO MORE! NOT ON OUR WATCH!  Will someone put this loose cannon in a straight jacket and cart him off to a rubber room before he brings on the end of the world?

Bush & company have brought us closer to the end of the world than Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis ever did.  Two madmen - the American idiot and and the iranian idiot with their gods beside them, and their fingers itching to push THE BUTTON reenacting the scene of High Noon!
