Video: Fox’s War Drums, Colbert’s Water Fight, and Stewart on Bush’s Magical History Tour

A few video clips from the past week: First up, here’s a scary video compiled by documentarian Robert Greenwald showing how Fox “News” is beating the drum for war with Iran … watch them repeatedly engaging in the same kind of propaganda and scaremongering they used during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

On a lighter note, here’s the long-awaited water fight between Stephen Colbert and Richard Branson.

Next up, Jon Stewart has the historical goods on Bush’s Vietnam flip-flop. Watch Bush argue with himself across time! 
As a side note, listen to the clips of Bush addressing the VFW in this video. Is his speech getting noticeably more slurred?

… and here’s some relevant follow-up commentary on why Bush thinks a longer Vietnam War would have been good for America. 
Bush with a veterinary degree? Somehow I can just see him setting up an office with Michael Vick, Bill Frist, and Rudy Giuliani. Vick would torture dogs, Frist would dissect cats, Rudy would kidnap ferrets and other small animals, and Bush would explain to everyone in the waiting room why it was necessary to destroy pets in order to protect their freedom and well-being.
