Lunchtime video fun

Here's Bill Clinton on Fox News Sunday with weaselly Chris Wallace. The Big Dog schools Wallace about a third of the way into it. 

This is beyond fabulous. Finally some honesty. It's nice to see him spend a little of his remaining political capital and I’m gratified to see him finally fighting back against the wingnuts who have made his life a living hell since the day he took office.  Let’s hope other Democrats continue to figure out that picking a real fight with the media and with these loser Republicans is not only good on the substance, it’s damned good politics.  When you attack the media and make those self-absorbed guardians of the national discourse part of the story, you break through their habitually snickering, narcissistic filter.  They can’t help but go with the story, if only to clutch the pearls and tut tut about your passion.  Just ask Sid Blumenthal.

And here's some reaction. First, the Daily Show with Jon Stewart (who covers the rest of the media so I don't have to):

I think Jon Stewart's take on the media's reaction is, as usual, right on target. TDS once again strings together different clips of video to let people hang themselves, in this case it's the different talking heads shoveling thier bullshit for their sadly misinformed (especially in the case of Fox) viewers.  The video speaks for itself but Stewart's "oh really? Who the fuck are you?" is a great capper.

Next, some Keith Olberman:

Olberman is turning into the Edward R. Murrow of our day.

    You beat me to it. Nice, pulling all three together. I do think Clinton came a bit unglued. But I like what he had to say. That's the way you put it out there when you have nothing to hide or to be ashamed of.

    Jon's reaction last night was awesome as usual. I love that the right is trying to drudge Clinton up and drag him through the mud these days. Just goes to show how desperate they're getting when they start grasping at the straws of a guy who's been out of office for 6 years now. The ultimate backfire would be if all this attention on him drums up support for Hilary, but now I'm just dreaming.

    Holy shit. Keith Olberman. Damn. I may have to re-up my satellite just so that I can watch this guy all the time.
