This YouTube video has gotten quite a bit of attention in the blogosphere today.
Update: The video has been taken down by the producers (for obvious reasons) but you can still find an archived version here.
Aside from the disturbing, North-Korean-style-“Dear-Leader”-worship meets Children-of-the-Corn vibe of the thing . . . the other striking thing about it is that the people who participated, produced and published this thing truly think they’re helping.
Those people aren’t “grass roots” activists from the heartland. As this blogger points out, they’re wealthy Hollywood moguls and L.A. beautiful people types.
Did you notice the big Obama poster on the wall of that room? I thought it looked familiar. Could this have been the inspiration?
I repeat. These people sincerely think this will help the Obama cause. The truly troubling thought is: “What if they’re right?”
