There’s a video out now of a campaign event where Barack Obama defines the term “Romnesia.” Here’s the link. Don’t click it yet. (Note: this is as of 2:10 p.m. Friday. If you’re reading this later than that, use your own judgment.)
I tried watching the video and immediately my computer time-traveled back half a decade or more. Every 10 seconds, I was getting maybe 1/8 of a second of footage. I remember from the old days what must be happening. Something like ten billion people — yes, I realize that that’s more than exist — must be trying to watch the thing at once. Then my computer made a sound that was not a signal that it was breaking, exactly, but sort of a Robert Mitchum in Night of the Hunter sound — I’ll let someone else find and post a link to that clip (you know which one I mean.)
It sounded sort of like the sound that I expect that Josh Romney was making inside his head when this photo was taken of him.
I had to shut everything down. When I started it up, a special blue screen that I’ve never seen before came up and I had to promise to it that I’d never do that again.
So, I’m going to wait a while before the next time I try to click that video. It’s here for you, though. And if you want a transcript because you just can’t wait, it’s over here.
P.S. You probably think I’m kidding. Would you risk the life of your computer or phone on it?
