MEET THE NEW BUSH - SAME AS THE OLD BUSH! We're getting a surprisingly large -- or maybe not too surprising -- number of Googlers looking for audio or video of GWBush's cover of "Won't Get Fooled Again."

There's a streaming audio source for the entire speech, right on the website. Fast-forward about ten minutes in.

UPDATE: While the transcript is still there, the streaming audio has apparently been removed from the White House website. So, as a public service, I bring you the salient video clip, TiVo'd right off the The Daily Show broadcast and streamed for your convenience by Mind Over What Matters. (Link requires Windows or somesuch Media Player.)

Alternately: Here's Comedy Central's own streaming video clip (requires RealMedia-compatible player).

Obviously, in its never-ending quest for currency of the realm -- more hits -- this page will have to make a point of deconstructing presidential speeches, press briefings and awkward casual remarks much more aggressively in the future.

UPDATE, Part Deux: Help me wrap my mind around what matters! If you have any trouble viewing the aforementioned streaming video -- seriously -- leave a note in the comments section. I'm having a litle trouble with it myself, but I can't tell whether it's a problem with my own MPEG conversion -- or just with certain problematic Media Player installations, "iffy" DSL connections, or firewall issues.
