George W. Bush Video Countdown, #5

The first rule of politics is that you treat every microphone as a live microphone. Its what almost sunk Sir Humphrey Appleby in an episode of Yes Minister. On the other hand, its also a handy tool for politicians to make off the record remarks that they want on the record. President Monkey's recent little mini-rant on Kanye West comes to mind.

One of the most famous is this one. Jon Stewart and his ilk thought this was the end of the world. This probably garnered Bush another 325,000 votes in 2004. Without further adieu, here's #5 on Third Edge of the Sword's Top 10 George W. Bush video moments in preparation for his October 20th speaking engagement at the Shaw Conference Centre.
