This is about 2.5 years old, but still very funny. It’s just over a minute long and stars the fictional Marv Kleinman, New York City Deputy Commissioner of Savings. It’s made by liberals, but it’s hilarious. You’ll note the credits at the end include Benjamin Chertoff. No, he’s not related to Michael Chertoff (he says if they’re related, it’s “back in the 18th Century”), but he is the journalist who wrote the Popular Mechanics piece and book debunking the 9/11 conspiracy theories.
The funny–no, sad–thing is that, these days, with the Bloomberg Administration welcoming pan-Islamists into its ranks, this could probably be a real welcome video for the Big Apple. And it actually sort of is. The video was made in response to idiotic New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s announcement he was offering special savings and discounts to protestors and “activists” who came to town during the 2004 Republican National Convention. “How do you say Akuna Matata in your crazy language?”
