-Bernard will be subbing for Bob Grant tonight from 8-10 PM EST, while Mr. Grant goes on vacation. So if you want to hear this program, hopefully you'll read this blog between now and 10 PM. If you didn't, then, well, my bad.
-A political humor question: Is this JibJab cartoon the best we can hope for in the next 4 years? Oh, man. Now, granted, I only saw 30 seconds of it, so maybe the remaining two minutes are the Sistine Chapel of political comedy. If so, I will stand corrected. But the talking heads are acting like George Carlin just rerose from the dead. Actually, all the praise for it makes me feel a little happier, because if that's the best kind of humor out there, then I'll have an easier time getting stuff published in the next few years. The bar will be lower.
On a sort-of-related note, Maureen Dowd has a column about this subject. It's a great piece, and I know we have some Mo Dowd fans in the house.
