This is my 100th post to Great Lakes, Great Times, Great Scott (formerly known as Scott Does Politics)! Let's celebrate with a few videos...
This is my very first YouTube video posting! It features Tim (whom I've known since middle school) and a couple others getting pied in the face for a good cause here at CMU. That's me saying "Having trouble there Tim?" at 1:13.
Here are a couple videos from British TV shows just after last November's elections.
And finally some late-night humor:
“A total now of eight people have announced that they want to be president. It's George Bush's fault. He has lowered the standard." --David Letterman
"As it does every year, this State of the Union matches up two bitter rivals: the president of the United States and words." --Jon Stewart
"31 million people watched the president -- many, I suspect, in hopes that he would get voted off. ... One of the big topics, of course, was the war. The president said he understands that Americans are losing patience, but he would like us to give his new plan a chance to work. In other words, all he is saying is give war a chance" --Jimmy Kimmel
"I'll give President Bush credit though. He addressed the problems troubling Americans -- the war in Iraq, the economy, the need to develop alternative fuels. He seemed to know what we were thinking. It's almost as if he was reading our mail or listening to our phone calls." --Jay Leno
"Seriously, the stakes are very high. And in this high stakes game, the president of the United States made one simple request [on screen: Bush asking Americans to give the new Iraq strategy a chance]. He's right. Everyone deserves a seventh chance." --Jon Stewart, on Bush’s State of the Union address
"During an interview with '60 Minutes' on Sunday, President Bush defended the invasion of Iraq, saying, 'We liberated that country from a tyrant. I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude.' Said the Iraqi people, 'We've been meaning to send a card, but our Hallmark store keeps blowing up.'" --Amy Poehler
"Some good news. Finally, President Bush is going to do something about global warming. He became alarmed when another chunk of ice fell off his mother." --David Letterman
"President Bush is still on the road trying to drum up support for his new Iraq program. ... This time, Bush has an exit strategy for the Iraqi war. In January of 2009, he will escape to Crawford, Texas." --David Letterman
