Random video of the day: SUSAN SARANDON's Best Actress win!

The video can be found here (embedding has been disabled by request).

This is a really classy moment, and a great decision by oscar. Susan is so lovely and poised and dignified, and so beautiful in that dress. The (gorgeos? haunting? thought-provoking?) Dead Man Walking theme played over her win gives it that much more weight and intensity. Well worth a watch, if you've never seen it (the oscar clip AND the film).

I'm Voting Republican!

This video makes me feel patriotic. It totally makes me feel proud of my country to hear patriotic music placed over a skewering of the Republican political platform. You could read it as the cheesy music being part of what's being skewered, but honestly when I watch it it's like the music is real and what your watching is the joke, and you're meant to feel patriotically proud to be making fun of Republicans. That's how I feel when I watch it anyway. It's kind of great.

It reminds me of how Bush really is a "uniter" not a divider, if by that you mean he united democrats, independents and moderate republicans against him and the mainstream of the Republican party.

I feel like this video would never have received an audience 4 years ago. But the times they are a-changin'. And it makes me proud that so many more people finally get it.
