Dubya Covers U2

There are lots of good spoofs of President Bush by impersonators like this one. And there are a lot of funny collages of his very own goofs like this one. But the best of the neutral patch-togethers is this one by a mile.

Great links. I really enjoyed the video clips ... however much the comments the U2 one are ridiculous and lacking of all substance. Can't one enjoy something without politicizing it? I guess not for those who hate Bush as much as they apparently do.

Yeah, believe me, living and working in academia, I see *virulent* hate for Bushy on a daily basis.

One of the things I liked about the U2 one was precisely the relative lack of overt negativity, though there's the thematic subtext.

And did you notice, as mentioned in the comments by a Michael, that the creators of the video left out the closing lines to the song:

"The real battle yet begun / Sunday, Bloody Sunday
To claim the victory Jesus won / Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Sunday Bloody Sunday / Yeah
Sunday Bloody Sunday"

Hmmm. Wonder why?!
