Brilliant. I was considering doing one myself.

Now I’ll just have to do another “Downfall” parody.

Sad thing is that this could be anyone of 100 senators currently in office.

The video doesn’t show up for me as is often the case with videos posted here. Other sites, such as good as you display the video from a source I can see, it’d be nice if you’d use video sources more people can view.

Pryia, it’s a YouTube video. It should work for anyone with flash installed. Have a direct link.

I tend to have more trouble with G-A-Y than with BTB, because he uses a lot of external media and relies on flash a lot. Pam’s House Blend and Slap Upside the Head are the only gay news sites I know which really care about accessibility. Pam and the other bloggers there usually include transcripts for videos, and Mark at Slap always puts proper alt text on his images.

Great video…Just for the record, the past tense of seek is not seeked.

Timothy, I don’t have flash installed and I’m not keen on installing questionable software every time I want to look at some video, so it doesn’t work for me. Other sites have videos like this with no hitches or need to install software so it certainly can be done

Priya Lynn,

I’m not a techie. But I think that Flash is kinda standard (not exactly “questionable”) and yours is the only complaint we’ve gotten about this.

Jim is undoubtably more adept at this sort of thing, but I don’t really want to learn special new techniques for posting video unless it’s really necessary.
