Tired of cranky commentary about U.S. government spending? Maybe it needs more sequins. Or a ballet. Or Ray Bradbury. Ladies and gentlemen, Stan Freberg presents "The Federal Budget Revue" (part 1; part 2; part 3).

Freberg's special aired on PBS in 1982. Here's one synopsis. provides audio for "The Federal Budget."

And as long as it is the Holiday season, here is Freberg's Classic Christmas Recording, even truer today than when it was made in 1958. "Good morning, Mr. Scrooge!"

To be honest, I still wish it had a BIT more Ray Bradbury.
