Kidsploitation Komedy

Camp Liberty: exposing the dire fate of the littlest enemy combatants. Another chilling (albeit fictitious) video from Jon Benjamin.

Recently Benjamin has been making videos for the new comedy news site 23/6: see these shadowy issue ads from the Swift Kids for Truth. Before that, he made the kidsploitation comedy classic Baby Pranks.

The SwiftKids bit that uses 9/11 references to poke Giuliani is in pretty poor taste. Giuliani as a politician is fair game, but if you don't think he ought to be discussing 9/11, there's got to be a better way of making your point. I guess it's good that they didn't make a flat footed attempt to Remember the Maine, or commemorate Pearl Harbor, too.

Not much on the 23/6 site worth watching, as far as I could see.

Mounting a political campaign on the coattails of a tragedy in which 3000+ people were murdered for religious reasons is also "in pretty poor taste" (much more so in fact). Giuliani rightly gets shit for employing his never-fail-Never-Forget mantra because it is the only thrust of his campaign! It's disingenuous and exploitive.

Is he fair game or not?

Giuliani is fair game for ridicule; 9/11 is not.
