If There's A Queen, Why Not a King?

(via Classical Values)

The above video about the Duke Lacrosse Team Alleged Rape Case is pretty good stuff. His other videos up at YouTube are pretty solid, too.

Even though he seems pretty new to this 'vlogging' thing, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the new "King of YouTube" would be TheNMN.

Dude's pretty damn funny. Dude's got some pretty fine braids. Dude's got some decent production values. Dude's got a pretty interesting outlook. Dude might be a bit of a commie, but dude can't be perfect. Dude needs to lose the 'thinking room' gimmick, though.

(dare I do it? dare I call him the "a" word? I know better than that)

He's a very different kind of "vlogger" than Kat Dennnings, but what he does, he does well, and say something like the muched maligned (but yet to air) Fox 1/2 Hour News Hour or the soon to be renamed Red Eye would do well to hire him as their 'non-token lefty minority'. He could do sort of an anti-Andy Rooney 90 second bit at the end of each episode.

I'm sure he'd be reluctant to work for FNC, but steady paychecks have a way of convincing folks of the necessity of offering diverse viewpoints in unusual venues.
