The Final Cut
It's the final Bush Christmas at the official White House website with the seventh annual Barney Cam video in which the First Family's black Scottish terrier cavorts with the Bushes, White House staffers, and celebrities while diligently decorating the White House despite his desires to pursue the agenda of his separate inner life. These surreal videos, in which Barney has been known to romp with Karl Rove, have been parodied several times, since the Quicktime files are easily accessible to potential mash-up artists. This year the theme was "a red, white, and blue Christmas," although much of the content was tied to the exploits of this year's Beijing Olympics. The digital effects were particularly bad in this year's edition and included bad rotoscoping and several noticeable wobbles from miskeyed sections.
