Disney's Donald Becomes "Right Wing Radio Duck"

Using various vintage Disney cartoons and mixing them with recent news coverage, Jonathan McIntosh has created a fascinating clip in which an angry, unemployed Donald Duck is drawn in to Glenn Beck's inflammatory rhetoric. [via Roger Ebert]



While I think this is brilliant (and personally loath Glen Beck), splicing together various comments and clips is a dangerous road to be on. The incident with Shirley Sherrod immediately pops to mind as an example of how Republicans have been using this tactic to spread lies. I wouldn't call this stooping to that level since this isn't changing anyone's career or attacking someone on unreasonable facts, it's still a little close for comfort.
