Incidentally, the "Yes We Can" video is directed by Jesse Dylan, whose father Bob Dylan wrote "Subterranean Homesick Blues," which included the lyric "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows," which is where the violent, radical, left-wing group the Weather Underground got its name. And this is not Obama's only association with the 1960s terrorist organization. Obama once went to a party at the home of Bill Ayers, who was once a member of the Weather Underground and is now a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Does Obama endorse the Weather Underground's plot to foment a violent overthrow of the U.S. government? And how does Obama feel about Dylan's betraying thousands of very sincere fans of folk music by going electric? Why didn't Tim Russert ask him about that?
Speaking of brilliant, you should catch a couple of vids going around. First is Will Farrell's exit from Letterman. Before you click over there, be warned, the second clip is a long and boring clip with Meredith Vieira from the Today Show. It is not funny. But the first one is.
Some of you may have seen the Chris Crocker's "leave Britney alone" video. I can't watch the entire thing, but it is a sobbing plea to leave Britney Spears alone (performance art, not a real plea). But Louis Black's sobbing "Leave Mike Huckabee alone" is hilarious.
