The Line to Kiss Sheldon Adelson's Boots

The Line to Kiss Sheldon Adelson's Boots "It’s hard to imagine a political spectacle more loathsome than the parade of Republican presidential candidates who spent the last few days bowing and scraping before the mighty bank account of the casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. One by one, they stood at a microphone in Mr. Adelson’s Venetian hotel in Las Vegas and spoke to the Republican Jewish Coalition (also a wholly owned subsidiary of Mr. Adelson), hoping to sound sufficiently pro-Israel and pro-interventionist and philo-Semitic to win a portion of Mr. Adelson’s billions for their campaigns."

Carnegie Mellon student Jordan Harrison remixed Lawrence Lessig's TED talk into a compelling three and a half minute argument against such corruption.
