The Friday Funny-- with an edge...

Crooks and Liars has a couple of fine, fine video clips from the Daily Show. First up, an interview with Chris Hitchens, who's very pompous. And still defends what we're doing in Iraq. Stewart demonstrates his ability to run rings around this administration's boosters. Every time he has a confrontation with a rightie shill, they wind up whining about being victimized. It's eerie.

Video-WMP (Sorry, no QT on their site.)

Now the icing on the progressive cake. White House talking points deconstructed, culminating with the great line "If I had a nickel for every time Bush has mentioned 9/11, I could raise enough reward money to go after Bin Laden." But there's more! A slammin' beat and some ill skratchin' give the Prez Diddy a chance to do the Hollywood slo-mo hero walk. And repeat himself a lot.



Maybe we should start getting comedians to run for high office. Stewart and Franken are experts at calling these guys on their crap.
