Rich Little was selected (vid link on that page is dead)
to headline the White House Correspondents Dinner
this year, no doubt to avoid the kind of controversy created last year's headliner, Stephen Colbert.
Seems like it was also a way to avoid any type of humor as well! Although no video of the event is yet available online (as far as I can see), an earlier YouTube video
accurately predicted the result. An example: 5 minutes to set up this
ancient, unfunny, joke. I wish I was kidding.
The Wizard of Oil
Some well-done Photoshop fun to start the week - "Somewhere under the radar, way down low.
There's a land that I heard of once, where the oil still flows.
Somewhere under the radar, folks are screwed.
And the schemes that you dare to scheme really do come through.
One day I wrecked the family car, and daddy and my mummy Bar remind me,
Of my troubles taking acid drops, the night they had to call the cops,
And then they fined me.
Somewhere under the radar, I'll get high. Drink Rye under the radar,
Try, oh yes I'll still try
Why, why must I be dry?
Bush Shoot Out! [note: flash, cartoon violence, animated blood]
A metaphor for the next four years?
Apologies in advance, as this post might be better kept afloat
at Fark, but one can't help think this it is a more represenative sign
. After a mishap like this
can you blame the dems?
Pleasure Boat Captains For Truth.
Those who knew Bush best are now revealing the truth: he was no party animal. See their ad, read their stories. This is probably very bad news for Bush.

The George Bush Conspiracy Generator
...is long overdue, and will make the lives of certain Mefi'ers just a little easier.
Still, I think it needs some work. It's nowhere near as clever as an old favorite, Web Economy Bullshit Generator,
the output of which I've actually inserted in proposals.
Pick your poison: highbrow
(virtual tour of 10 Downing Street), or lowbrow
(virtual tour of the White House). Hint: one of these is funny.
of Bill Moyer's recent interview with Jon Stewart concerning the Daily Show & the state of media's involvement in political discourse in America.
Who's the only man who can take on President George W. Bush in a debate? Why, it's Texas Governor of the past, George W. Bush! BUSH v. BUSH!
Actually, it's a movie, but it sure is hilarious... Bush + Blair = LUV
Empire burlesque: Iraq invasion through the looking glass -
"MECCA, March 22, 2005
-- President Osama B. Laden today called for a 'regime change' in the United States, saying the military dictatorship led by unelected strongman George Walker Bush 'is an ever-present threat to world peace.'" Spot on or way off, I found it amusing, in a whistling-past-the-graveyard way, at least. (piece originally appeared in The Moscow Times)

Oh that whirlwind affair that October in Shanghai.
It's a week old. And I hope and pray this hasn't been posted before. But if you like joke fodder about Bush, these photos may be for you.
Bush or Chimp closes shop.
Another stalwart anti-Bush site has folded in light of recent events. The irreverent bushorchimp.com
, dedicated to visual comparisons of the President and various look-alike primates has closed down. I understand that we're in the midst of a crisis, but is Bush now beyond criticism? Ok, maybe pictures that compare Bush to monkeys aren't exactly thoughtful criticism... Still, NOW where am I going to get novelty t-shirts for friends and family this Xmas?
The SomethingAwful goons are on a GWB photoshopping spree. Oh man, I haven't laughed this hard in a long time.
Whip it good
with Bush and Gore. The Hampster Dance has made it into the White House.
The Campaign Scandal Generator.
Just in time for the lightning round of the campaign!
Bush: 342 / Gore: 224
Bush leads Gore in the number of jokes made about him on late night talk shows.
