Old Guys on YouTube

John McCain and his colleagues enjoying a legendary YouTube clip on the campaign bus.
The best part of this FT review of the upcoming book Game Change (a behind the scenes look at the 2008 campaign/candidates), is this description of McCain and his cronies on YouTube:
During the duller moments on the campaign bus, John McCain and his colleagues Joe Lieberman, the renegade Democratic senator, and Lindsey Graham, the Republican from North Carolina, would watch the legendary four-minute YouTube clip of John Edwards vainly fussing over his hair in a TV studio. "Let's look at it again," McCain would suggest then they would roll about clutching their sides.
If only they were watching dramatic chipmunk.
