Behold the most viewed video on all of YouTube today, brought to you by the same halfwit responsible for the hand-wringing “Bomb Iran” montage, the self-parodic anti-war poetry slam, and assorted attacks on America’s greatest enemy, Fox News. I quote from the video’s sidebar description:
There’s no question John McCain is getting a free ride from the mainstream press. But with the power of YouTube and the blogosphere, we can provide an accurate portrayal of the so-called Maverick. We can put the brakes on his free ride!
Having read that, you’re now properly prepared for a pastiche of McCain getting grilled or otherwise criticized by Tim Russert, Keith Olbermann, CNN, and various other mainstream media figures who are totally giving Maverick a “free ride” — except for these clips, of course. Wake me when the press’s affinity for him reaches such intensity that they’re actually describing it with the language of drug addiction.
Update: To contextualize how feeble and penny ante this thing is, imagine how much harder hitting an attack on McCain from the right would be. You could wring five minutes just from immigration and CFR.
