Fox News Preps News Satire Show

“The way I look at it, almost every comedy show or satire show I see uses the same talking points against George W. Bush and Dick Cheney,” Surnow said. “The other side hasn’t been skewered in a fair and balanced way.”

I sense one small problem with this idea: conservatives aren’t really very funny. Besides, Fox News already has plenty of failed attempts at comedy. How else can you explain “Hannity and Colmes” or “The O’Reilly Factor”?

Yeah. I’ve been laughing my ass off the last couple of days. The democrats are really funny. They told you they were going to bring the troops home, and got elected on that premise.

The day before yesterday, they re-introduced draft legislation.

A liberal friend of mine asked “What just happened?”.

Charles Rangel introduced legislation like this before. It’s a stunt. Even he doesn’t want the draft reinstated. He thinks that if the draft were reinstated, the Iraq war would end. He’s probably right, because basically nobody wants to reinstate the draft, but I think the Iraq war is simply on its way out anyway, so the point is really moot. It barely matters that the Democrats have a majority: the Republicans would bring the war to a close before the 2008 elections anyway. They pretty much have too, fiscal conservatives (there are a few) are pretty much sick of paying for it without any significant gains.

Well, that’s far too much politics for today. I’m about to put a turkey and a ham in the oven, and have about half of the sides done or in progress. Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving.
