"Unlike basketball, the security of the United States is not a game. Can we afford a party that treats it like one?"

How great is this?

I first saw this on Instapundit (surprise surprise, Glenn Reynolds was the first to post on it--how shocking). Since then LGF has posted on it. It originally appeared on the Drudge Report.

The video has been "flagged" and as such requires a password if viewing it on the YouTube site. But, LGF notes that:

the fictional assassination of George W. Bush? No problem:

YouTube - Death of a President.

The ad is apparently not being shown on TV (I certainly haven't seen it--though I've seen the stupid ad about Bob Byrd supporting a law protecting silent prayer about 9,000 times). Why? Well Ann Althouse--who I am not overly familiar with--explains it all:

Noooooo! It wouldn't be nice! [We] must be niiiiiiiiiice. So they're not showing it, and it's a good thing no one can see it.

I think that is said with tongue-in-cheek, though.

Anyway, it's an interesting video--quite good. It sure does lay it out there for the American people to take it--too bad relatively few people are seeing it.

PS--As a side note, does Google's recent acquisition of YouTube mean an end to countless hours of browsing free stupid videos? I hope not...


I just viewed the video "Death of a President" that LGF linked to. How disgusting. The producer says it's not anti-Bush, and he can't understand why people would think it is. Gee. A video about killing Bush, how could that possibly be seen as anti-Bush?
