New Jib-Jab Video is Lame, Far Tougher on McCain

By Debbie Schlussel
I don’t like JibJab, and I don’t see what the hype is over these guys. Sure, their first Presidential Election video in 2004 was cute and entertaining. But their videos since then are pretty lame, in my view.
And check out this latest one for this year’s White House contest. It’s far tougher on John McCain and barely has any jabs for Obama. The only things good in it are the parts with Hillary and Bill Clinton. And there’s no Michelle Hussein Obama in this video at all–strange, since she’s one of his biggest weaknesses. Oh, sure, now they have a gimmick where you can insert yourself into the vid. Interesting, but not interesting enough to save this very weak video. Looking forward to when their 15 minutes are up:

Now, now Debbie – if you really want to get under the Left’s skin – ridicule them! They consider an insult a badge of honor. But the one thing they can’t stand is being laughed at. After the kerfuffle over the now infamous New Yorker front cover, the one thing we’ve just learned is making fun of Obama and his wife is off limits in this campaign.

This video reminds me a little of one of the worst traitors of the 20th century, Pete Seeger, who would go around light-heartedly with his banjo, attacking the United States in every way he could. The thing that struck me in this video were the attacks on our military, and by strong inference, the promotion of terrorism, because of the way McCain was belittled. People like Jib-Jab, who I’m sure would be quick to condemn alleged treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib seem to have no problems ridiculing McCain’s imprisonment and torture by Communist barbarians.

Yeah, that’s sux. But this is MUCH MUCH funnier:

Eh, I find them amusing. I know it’s silly, but I like to laugh at things.

Not their best effort but all right. I don’t agree that it’s harder on McCain. I think they hit BO pretty well.
