A few weeks ago Stephen Colbert aired his second edition of the John McCain 'Green Screen Challenge'.

Well ladies and gentlemen the big story out there continues to be the high cost of gasoline. Four bucks a gallon. I have stopped traveling anywhere that is not down hill. Luckily John McCain has the solution, Jim...

Three hundred million dollar prize for the development of a battery package that has the size, capacity, cost and power to leap frog the commercially available plug-in hybrids or electric cars.....

Fabulous prizes!...Who says McCain's campaign has no new ideas? They have the new idea of offering millions of dollars to people who actually have ideas. Ladies and gentlemen this is the latest example of John McCain's brave fight to keep Americans awake while he talks. It all started three weeks ago when he spoke in front of a green screen, challenging Americans to fill that green space with something more interesting than John McCain. Well to help his valiant effort I posted that green screen footage at ColbertNation.com and you the heroes have responded to my make McCain exciting challenge.

I believe this one topped the first edition and the Vogue clip was my favorite. SilentPatriot said his vote was for the Elvis clip. Which one is your favorite?
