This week our selection of Truthdig-flavored videos contains a hysterical satire of Bush’s State of the Union speech and two revealing then-and-now comparisons: one of John McCain’s hypocrisies and one of Bush’s rhetorical parallels between Iraq and Iran.



No. 1: The Real McCain.com

Documentary filmmaker Robert Greenwald (“Outfoxed” “Iraq for Sale”) produced this video (and accompanying website) to expose the blatant contradictions John McCain has made on issues like Iraq, gay marriage and the Confederate flag.

No. 3: Bush’s Disturbing Iraq-Iran Parallels

Olbermann put together a video package that compares Bush’s 2002 rhetoric about Iraq with his 2007 rhetoric about Iran. It’s not pretty.
