Over the past couple of weeks, a few videos caught my eye, for various reasons. I thought that it was a good time for a collection of links:
Via Steven Benen at Political Animal, a video has been found which encapsulates the obstructionist policy of the Republicans with respect to health care and, come to think of it, everything else:
Via Roger Ebert’s “Answer Man” column, I learned of the movie Paranormal Activity, a low-budget, “Blair Witch”-style documentary horror film which is getting rave reviews as a stunningly scary film. It hasn’t received wide theatrical release yet, but hopefully it will be coming to a theater near you soon:
Shepard Smith, though an anchor on the stunningly dishonest Fox News, manages to demonstrate an admirably independent thought process. This week, when Senator John Barrasso spouted spurious GOP talking points about the proposed public health option, Shep let him have it (via Talking Points Memo):
As long as we’re speaking of Fox News personalities, I can’t pass up pointing out what a phony slimebag Glenn Beck is. Though it will surprise few that his teary-eyed commentaries are completely faked, it is still amazing that this video was released showing his tear-producing method: Vick’s Vapo-Rub:
Finally, via HuffPost, some truly amazing video: the only known film footage of Anne Frank, a short scene in a video of the wedding of the girl next door. This footage was released by the Anne Frank House, and is now on YouTube:
That’s all for now!
