Great mash-ups concerning political/social themes?

What are your favorite video and/or audio mash-ups that deal with politics or social issues?

A good example of what I'm looking for: the "Vote Different" 1984 Mac ad/Hillary mash-up. Interested in both serious and silly examples. Thanks!

Evolution Control Committee's Rocked by Rape is one of my faves.

Spitting Image and Genesis's teamup for Land of Confusion. A classic if there ever was one, and I don't even like Genesis!

This isn't really a mash-up, but should be mentioned here as it has been covered, sampled, parodied and alluded to a multitude of times:

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

It gets my blood pumping more than the St. Crispen's Day speech for some reason, even though I'm only 26, white, and don't suffer from much oppression.

I absolutely adore Legendary K.O.'s "George Bush Don't Care About Black People."

Less political, but more fun are The Party Party's mashup of Bush speeches. Sunday Bloody Sunday is really good.

There are a few good mash-ups on Mark Fiore's video list.

And if you've never seen his flash work? Well, you're in for a treat :)

Just about all of Wax Audio's work.
