1. Just saw it on CNN - Even better on big screen TV.
I think this ad is going to be very effective. Look out, Swift Boaters. You've got competition.

39. Brilliantly simple ad about the simpleton in the White House....
It really zeroes in on the obtuseness of Bush the Lesser. And brings up some of the issues that should be talked about beyond "terra, terra, terra...."

Okay...

That's not actually John McCain in the ad.

But it looks like him.

34. Tech support, anyone?
Regardless of which browser I use (and I have at least four on my computer) I cannot get sound from any video through YouTube. Similarly, I can no longer get sound to go along with my beloved Homestar Runner cartoons. Noting that both YouTube and Homestar are Flash-based I made sure to download the most up-to-date Flash player for my situation, but that made no difference. The tech support that YouTube referred me to had more to do with uploading video than with watching exisiting files. I am a macintosh user, running OSX.4.7. I most often use the Safari browser but also have access to Explorer, Netscape, and Firefox (and maybe a few others). It's not simply a mac compatibility thing -- I used to watch (and listen to) Homestar religiously, but something changed. I WANT TO WATCH THIS CLIP -- many thanks for your help toward that end.

35. Same problem here
Sounds work on every other application exept IE and Firefox... Have tried updating drivers/flash.. to no avail. Frustrating. Oh, I use XP.

Help would be highly appreciated :)

44. TECH SUPPORT IS HERE!
And I don't even have a indian accent :)
OK, it sounds like (no pun intended) you need to update your version of quicktime.
A lot of programs use QT and windows media player for imbedded video (youtube stuff).
So for the Apple guy, update QT, for the windows guy update QT and WMP.

lemmie know if that works.

49. Tech support, anyone?
There's a bug in Flash 9 that causes this behavior -- you can see but not hear the video. It works correctly in Flash 8, but 8 was discontinued (very quickly, I should add) due to security flaws.

If this is what's causing your problem, your options are to try to find a Flash 8 player, which obviously I wouldn't recommend, wait for the bug to be fixed in 9, or possibly notify the sites which this is affecting for you and they might be able to code a workaround (a workaround does exist but it's not always feasible to implement).

51. Even if your YouTube Flash is glitched, crooksandliars.com should work.
Try downloading it if clicking on it directly doesn't work.

45. Honestly at this point
I just want to toss some JD or some other flamable liquid on the shrub and try talking to god :evilgrin: It'd be spiritual and gratifying all at the same time.

Finally shrub will be good for one thing....providing a little warmth for a few minutes ;)

59. Reminds me of the oh-so-apropos Jefferson quote:
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

Except that in this case, the bush of tyranny must be fertilized from time to time with the hurled shit of angry patriots.
