Political Dorks Rejoice!

C-SPAN has placed its entire video library on-line. For free. Hundreds of thousands of shows. For free. It is an amazing digital library and historical archive.

Who can forget Senate Foreign Relations Chair Jesse Helms (R-NC) blocking fellow Republican William Weld's (R-MA) nomination to become ambassador to Mexico in 1997? I've been retelling the story to my students for years. Now I can actually show them. (I'd like to show the video but am having problems embedding it. No matter, here is the link).

Bravo C-SPAN.
