More Bush Minus the Cue Cards
Here’s still another video clip on the Bush Debate performance. It appears on a site called howbushdidit. It probably runs about 5 minutes.
At first, you think it’s a parody–like the DNC clip. However, it just keeps getting more painful and revealing. In most pieces like this, the editing colors the content to such a degree that you’re left with more of a sense of the editor than the subject. Why I posted this, however (at the risk of debate overkill, at this point), is because of its unusual restraint. I’ve seen it a couple times, and I think ( in contrast to the mocking tone of the DNC’s effort, and at least a half dozen other things I also looked at) that this video lets Bush hang himself.
