    That's the thing, the Daily Show goes after the Dems too, but the Republicans just give them so much more good material. Especially since Bush has been in power.

    No but political satire has only been around for about 6 years, so they probably only started paying attention recently.

    Indeed. I mean, has a comedian ever made a joke about, say, Clinton and the Lewinsky affair? Never! The very idea is unthinkable!

    The problem with conservative humor is that it's conservative first, and funny second. This is why South Park is so successful: it's funny first, and conservative second. The Daily Show is also primarily focused on the "funny," rather than the "liberal."

    Why do you hate the holidays? Does your family stress you out? Do they expect too much of you or are they just insane?

    I think that all of the strips assume the viewer is intricately familiar with and subscribe to every view that the Right Wing has been issuing. In this case, it features a dinosaur (representing the "old" conventional wisdom) talking about how government workers are underpaid.

    More to the point, it's never funny. Like someone (Than?) mentioned, it's all about conservtive first and funny second. You'd probably see the same kind of crap if PETA got together and issued a comic strip.

    "Federal employees are lazy and over-paid; people who think otherwise aren't in touch with reality." Probably the result of somebody at the post office being a moron.

    t Doc: Just go by album, presumably? I've only used Shuffles, but that seems like the reasonable approach.

    Personally, I hate compilation albums and would rather have the original album or none at all, but that's not useful for most people.

    The issue is that if I want to browse by artist, I have to scroll past a bunch of people I don't really care about where I only have one song of theirs from some soundtrack or something.

    I'll just change all the artist listings to the soundtrack name.
