    It's also pretty humorous when Stewart takes a recent comment from someone like Cheney, and proves it false with three or four other contradictory videos (of the same person!) he runs in quick succession.

    It will be interesting to see if he is equally adept with the other side, there is much fertile ground there.

    Two of the best political satirists I ever saw in the cartooning field are Garry Trudeau of Doonesbury; and Berke Breathed, in his comic strip Bloom County.
    Trudeau's still doing Doonesbury; Breathed's only doing his weekly strip starring Opus the Penguin from Bloom County. Most of his time's now spent writing children's books.
    Those two guys were wonderful - not only did they skewer politicos from both sides of the fence, but they made me laugh while they were doing it.

    Many of the TV news people have become self-lampooning, I keep wondering when Chris Mathews and the Anointed One will start dating......

    Even the local broadcast teams are, for that matter. There was one news show that went by the name "Action News." They had one team of anchors for the five o'clock broadcast in the evening, and another for the six P.M. show. When it came time for the teams to change places for the later show, the six P.M. team would come jogging onto the set and exchange high-fives with the five o'clock crew, before taking their seats as the five o'clock anchors went jogging off.
    (I'm not making this up; I swear. I read it a few years ago in a newspaper or magazine article about TV news shows, and what lengths the stations would go to in order to boost their ratings. )

    Interesting development amongst the presidents of some major universities. The Amethyst Initiative sounds like a return to sanity.
