Via oddprofessor through non-blog channels (they do still exist), some basic US political facts with a sense of humour : Speaking as an educator, this is very well done. The discrepancies noted here have telling points with regard to Australian political priorities as well.
Via Shakespeare’s Sister, Stephen Colbert did a fabulous satirical performance at the White House Press Corps Dinner with President Bush on the weekend (I’ve never seen him perform, but apparently his schtick is lampooning a KoolAid drinking BushCo loyalist to the fanatic hilt – and the White House invited him to perform!).
“When the president decides something on Monday, he still believes it on Wednesday – no matter what happened Tuesday.”
You wouldn’t know how brilliant his performance was from the mainstream USA press coverage though, maybe because he skewered the Beltway columnists as well:
“You should spend more time with your families, write that novel you’ve always wanted to write. You know, the one about the fearless reporter who stands up to the administration. You know–fiction.”
