There are three great moments in this short video of McCain’s acceptance speech. First, a Code Pink demonstrator interrupts McCain’s speech and gets dragged out to chants of “U.S.A.!” Then, McCain fumbles and makes an antiquated tech-related joke about static. Finally, McCain delivers his speech in front of a blue screen. Stephen Colbert, eat your heart out.
We can only hope that “The Colbert Report’s” “Make McCain Exciting Challenge” hasn’t lost any of its steam. In the challenge, viewers are asked to insert video behind McCain as he speaks in front of a green screen last June.
