Twitter’s Vine service has long befuddled those who doubt the value of a looping video limited to six seconds. Nevertheless, the White House thought it was a fine way for the president to unveil, informercial style, the next item on his second-term wish list: two free years of community college for “everybody who’s willing to work for it.”

Our favorite bit is where the president punches the word “free” with a quick point to the viewer.

You mean this guy? The “free money from the government” guy? We can see that.


But wait! There’s more (to the announcement). Unfortunately, it just links to another YouTube video.
