Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

The 1/2 Hour News Hour

Many of you may have heard that propaganda mill Fox News is starting a new Daily Show ripoff known as the "1/2 Hour News Hour."* I suppose you could say that it's their equivalent of "Air America." Some folks, I know, have been concerned that this might prove to be as successful as the Daily Show.

Well... um... I really don't think we need to worry. At all. The reason? If it sucked any more it would spontaneously develop an event horizon. Seriously, check it out:

It's more or less like watching the animatronic Lincoln in the Hall of Presidents try to deliver sex jokes.

So what have we learned? Well, simply that when media and politics mix, there appear to be comparative advantages. The conservatives are better at shrill incoherent ranting, but the liberals are actually amusing.

I'm satisfied with that.

* As a side note, judging by the format and artwork, I'm not sure they realized that the Colbert Report is satire.

Holy crap...That is the worst canned laughter I have ever hear. It's like the sound effects engineer didn't think it was funny and sabotaged the laugh track.
