Kudos to the Brits John Bird and John Fortune for using humor to spell out quite succinctly what is going on with the major issues in the US, affecting the entire world, Iraq and the Economy. Nothing remotely close to these straightforward recitations of facts can be found in our corporate media. Only Jon Stewart comes close.
Thanks to earthfamilyalpha for these links. Do check out their website as there is more information about the surge via Real News.

BTW, I conversely need to mini-rant; Jay Leno is an asshole and Bill Maher is a misogynist creep. I have reasons to laugh most every day of my life. These guys and others who try to 'pass' as comics are a sad commentary on our culture.
