I thought it would be funnier.

Yay! Google is letting me comment.

Cool blog, Ryan. I like your comments on Wizbang, too.

@anon: ya, it's more satire than humor per se. and less funny than, well, a sad statement of certain political conditions.

Thanks for dropping by here. Sometimes Google can be a little weird with the comments. Not sure why. Glad they let you through.

As for the comments at Wizbang, thanks for saying that. I definitely get my share of flak over there, and sometimes I'm not sure why I take the time to post anything, since a lot of the folks aren't all that willing to listen to opposing perspectives. But there are some thoughtful folks who keep it interesting. That site is best when people drop the partisan stuff and stick to the issues. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. You know how it goes...

Ha, thanks for sharing that! I would have been a lot more ambivalent about the cynicism of the subtitles were Clinton's own cynicism not so palpable. God, I sure would love to do something similar with a video and excerpts from actual diplomatic cables released through Wikileaks!

Class project!

But seriously, very cool blog.

Thanks for the comment Greg. Ya, Clinton is pretty transparent in this one.

That would be a good class project, btw.
