I don't usually post videos on my blog, but when I do, it's usually because they're freaking awesome. Here's the year 2008 in videos posted to my blog, for your entertainment.
On the fifth anniversary of our invasion of Iraq, I needed something silly to cheer me up, so the Sailor Scouts came to the rescue.
Anne Hathaway says that supporting gay rights isn't brave, it's, you know, something decent human beings do. "Love is a human experience, not a political statement."
Some funny people had a song about hymenization of virginity, and I wrote a significantly less funny rant on the same. I've been reading about this all year, it just doesn't go away!
This guy I've never heard of (James Pence, I guess his name is?) had a fantastic video up about what, precisely, makes a terrorist. Hint: Think less explosives and more foreclosures and wiretapping.
The California Supreme Court struck down the state's gay marriage video, and I celebrated with parody songs. Will you commitment ceremony me?
School ended, Obama won the nomination, and YouTube gave us a long list of reasons to vote Republican. "I just don't feel I deserve health insurance, and hybrid cars really suck."
The Olympics started, campaign season began to heat up, and we argued against McCain's "maverick" thing by pointing at his record. It didn't quite work, but points for effort.
Apparently nothing happened during election season, but as it wound down, I reflected fondly on some of the finer moments of the campaign.
Finally, with the year drawing to a close, we unleashed the full fury of liberal Hollywood with Jack Black's wonderful "Prop 8: The Musical."
And so, 2008 comes to a close! May 2009 come with more victories, less defeats, and lots of funny videos.
