Parody of Obama video featuring McCain
Remember the Barack Obama "Yes We Can" video that's drawn rave reviews and churned out pageviews? Unsurprisingly, there's a new parody of it out now. Surprisingly, it's well worth your time.
Mostly I smile at but quickly turn away from these one-off parodies. Once you get the joke, what's the point of watching the full 90-second video?
Occasionally, though, such a parody manages to approach or even surpass the original. This is one of those occasions. Splicing together clips of John McCain's utterances on the topic of Iraq, this movie manages to be entertaining and skewer its subject satirically all at once. Well worth every second invested.
