Anyone willing to post a non-real version it?

I miss Rick Mercer. Still, quite funny, though not really much new here.

Here is the text of his comment.
(It's mislabled "Rick Mercer", but corrected later by the snopes people.)

22 Minutes - Rick Mercer = Not Funny.
Mochrie has his moments on Whose Line, but he's an improv comic, not a satirist. Nothing comes close to Mercer's rants...

If anybody has some server space where I can put the converted AVI file, let me know. It's pretty funny. "I'm sorry we burned down your White House in the War of 1812. I see you've rebuilt it. It looks very nice.

Hmph. No kind server donors, then? Well, I've put the video up on my slow-ass KaZaA connection. Feel free to download it; please share it so that others can find it. There are also a couple of Frontline and All Things Considered RealMedia-converted-to-a-useful-codec episodes that I'm serving. I thought the MeFi crew would appreciate them.
