On this subject (Jon Stewart's "Gov't Doesn't Suck Rally"), as in so many, it was said best by Jay and Lynne in Yes Minister.

Bernard: What about a publicity campaign Minister, you know
                  ADMINISTRATION SAVES THE NATION, RED TAPE IS FUN,
                  full pages ads in ... in. Just an idea.
Jim:         Red tape is fun?
Bernard: Well what about RED TAPE HOLDS THE NATION TOGETHER.

Let me share a small laugh with you LOTM.

RE:
"(Youtube, the Statist tools, pulled the video) "

When I saw that at the bottom of this post, for a brief moment I thought you had linked to my long-standing series "Statist Tools."

Now, only last week I had used "Statist Fools" as a lead-in to separate but parallel thought.

It seems you have found an example where YouTube is, regularly, both.

That's is, not a great laugh, but it is fitting.

P.S.: You know you can find preserved somewhere on the web just about any YouTube that has been pulled. Have you thoroughly looked for this one?

Let me know if you find it.
