Cartoon or Fox News? You decide.

My brother just sent me this, so that's my excuse for posting a video clip that's almost five years old. :)

Actually, it's just too good to miss. And the message is still timely. In fact, I think it's amazing how much today's Republican campaign commercials look like that ad for Crusty the Clown. Couldn't you just picture Rick Perry there?

So maybe Fox News was right to worry? OK, for the record, the right-wing clowns running for office for real usually don't wear clown makeup. And Fox doesn't normally admit that it's "the voice for evil." The real Fox News probably just assumes that's obvious. Those are the two main differences.

Oh, and after you watch that clip once, go through it a second time, so you can concentrate on the news crawl at the bottom of the screen. My favorite is "Oil slicks found to keep seals young, supple."

Wait a minute, you mean that wasn't Rick Perry in the commercial? Good catch on the scroll on the bottom - I missed that.
