*Gasp* politics!

And here's Charles Gibson/ABC's take on the Kennedy inaugural address:

In the long history of the world, only a few...have been granted the role of defending freedom. [...] I welcome it. I do not believe...any other people or any other generation. [...] The glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: [...] what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: [...] here on earth God's work must truly be our own.


Of course, you can't hear editing marks and creative video shooting can mask cuts, and a little pitch bending will solve any incongruencies with the speech.

Oh, oh look... our theoretical ABC broadcast just made JFK into a hawkish, "neo-con" egotist. Go figure.

Whoever is responsible for the Palin interview editing needs to be shitcanned in a damned hurry.

Well, turning Kennedy into an internationally-freedom-promoting hawk isn't exactly hard, is it?

That was the best thing about him!
