The Avant-Garde Politics of Mike Gravel

In case you thought Mike Gravel had quietly exited the YouTube political stage—think again. He's back in yet another collaborative effort with user rx2008, this time taking aim at Barack Obama. Often ignored by the mainstream media, Gravel has been one of the most active presidential candidates on YouTube, beginning with his now infamous video, The Rock. Gravel's other collaborations with rx2008 include three music videos and several edgy political mash-ups.

"I knew absolutely nothing about Mike Gravel until I saw him in one of the early debates," rx2008 told Citizentube. "He tells it like it is, and is incredibly knowledgeable about the issues we face as a country." Disillusioned with the Democrats, Gravel recently switched to the Libertarian Party and is seeking to win that party's nomination for president.
