You can’t help but admire him.
…ensuring that America is secure, and not dependent on oil from people like Hugo Chavez or other parts of the Middle East which is, we know, could be destabilized under certain sets of circumstances.
One of the comments describes it best:
another devastating hit from the map shortage Teen South Carolina warned us about…
If you keep hearing about his on television. Here is it in full. Some of the best political parody I have ever seen.
Beautifully illustration. Almost like a cleaner version of flip book created on the corner of a notebook.
Andrew Sullivan has found the fictional version of Sarah Palin.
Probably the most scathing attack on McCain and Palin. The fact that he cancels Letterman because he is got to fly back to Washington to save the economy but ends up talking to Katie Couric while the Letterman show is taped is incredibly funny.
It is now officially a Palin day on Ticklebooth.
After hearing Matt Damon’s brilliant comparison of a Sarah Palin presidency to a bad Disney movie, I called up Sam and said “Let’s make a trailer for what that movie would look like.” Within hours, Dan and Amir were writing it, Ben and the CHTV crew were casting and producing it, and two weeks later, here it is.
Perfect. Thanks Damon.
This is funnier than any SNL writer can possibly think up. The final question and answer is just one of funniest moments of this election season. When Palin tries to insult Obama by saying he blows with the wind, she licks her finger and puts it up in the air. Hahahah! She is entertaining in the way Bush was.

It is like being able to see behind a curtain. From Gizmodo:
Processing is an open source programming language designed for visual artists, “created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool.” Originally developed at the MIT Media Lab, it’s a free alternative to fancy, expensive, proprietary software tools. And man, can you make some cool stuff with it. This video, created by Glenn Marshall using Processing, is called Metamophosis. Featuring music by the incomparable Boards of Canada, it’s a remarkable testament to what you can create with a simple programming language if you’ve got the chops.
Amy Goodman talks about the bailout.
JUAN GONZALEZ: Bob Scheer, the issue also of this rush to pass this legislation—I’m reminded somewhat of the PATRIOT Act after 9/11: an immense tragedy occurs, and immediately they try to rush through legislation without many of the members of Congress even having a handle as to what it really contains.
ROBERT SCHEER: Oh, it’s absolutely outrageous, and we can’t let them get away with it. I mean, consider that Paulson was the head of Goldman Sachs, OK? He knew about credit swaps. He knew about hybrid instruments. He knew all of this stuff. And now he’s the guy that says Congress has to give him a blank check, it has to be a pure bill? Nonsense!
This is our money. Why isn’t this money used to help people who are going to lose their houses? You miss two, three payments, and they’re going to foreclose on you; then they say, “Well, we hope the banks will work out new agreements.” Nonsense! Do a freeze on foreclosures. Stop the bleeding. Have a year to let it settle, and force the banks to come to agreements.
Damn those black boxes.
Undulating blob creatures invade the picturesque city of Malmö.
