Democratic governors make awesome movie montage for bloggers

Bloggers at the Netroots Nation convention will enjoy a stirring, Jumbotron-ready motivational video

Published July 22, 2010 3:01PM (EDT)

The Democratic Governors Association will be playing this stirring video at Netroots Nation, the annual liberal blogger/activist convention that begins today in Las Vegas. You should watch it, because it's hilarious. The DGA, trying to get all those money-raising bloggers excited enough to care about gubernatorial races, knows exactly how to appeal to their audience: With Arcade Fire and a kick-ass movie montage.

This is, I think, the exact same montage of motivational speeches that basketball teams play during timeouts in the fourth quarter when they're down 20 points.

(But did they get the rights to any of this? Probably not!)
