Funny Political videos

February 11th, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

first, before the funny — here’s “the video that started it all”  — “Yes, We Can” 

about 4 minutes long.

If you’re into laughing and politics, these are highly recommended . . .

McCain’s “Yes, I Can” video —

length:  1:39

Hillary under sniper fire in Bosnia:

1 min.

The Mac vs. PC Guys

30 seconds

The brilliant Clinton – Cruise Campaign




Another McCain “No, You Can’t” parody

2 minutes

Hillary and Reese Witherspoon in the Election


Baby Got Barack  (great funny music rap)

4 min.

Obama: The Musical  (it’s silly season!)

Stephen Colbert’s brilliant priceless skewering of Dubya at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner in 2006.

24 min.  (although, you can cut out around 16:50 when it goes into the video piece)

One of the funniest parts is watching how Bush doesn’t even “get” that he’s being ridiculed (at least for the first 5 minutes).

This is probably the single most priceless, overt, ballsyest skewering of a President ever executed, or at least ever caught on film. And I’m not really a huge fan of Colbert, but even his pauses are comic mastery.

This is what Lenny Bruce’s entire life was leading towards. He died so that Colbert could eventually do this. This is the peak of the mountain that Lenny & Carlin & David Steinberg & Mort Saul & others were all blazing the trail up.

How Colbert keeps going, keeps a straight face, and doesn’t just panic and run the hell out of there in the middle is just titanium balls with a Groucho ‘stache.

Remember: “Reality has a well known liberal bias.”
