Politics: where absolutely anything is OK as long as the right team does it.

MC GWB on the mic...

An awesome "remix" of bits of GWB speeches and soundbites:


The rest of the tracks are pretty good -- http://www.thepartyparty.com/ -- but that one one is all manner of genius.

Back in the early nineties, a group called Emergency Broadcast Network did a (relatively) famous cover of Queen's "We Will Rock You," using snippets of then-President George H. W. Bush's speeches for the vocals. It was pretty hilarious.

The video was pretty awesome as well, since EBN does most/all of their music by using sounds culled from video clips ... so sequencing the sounds produces a mashed-up video sequence of the source material. The "We Will Rock You" video made Bush look very Max Headroom-ish.

I had a great remix of President George H. W. Bush giving a state of the union speech. "And finally, I had a joint tonight, and it is kicking in, now. And that is fine. No one ever thinks I need drugs." etc. It was really funny. I've still got it as a WAV file somewhere, so I'll see if I can dig it up and post it online.
