Wizard of Id (2/12/09)


During last year’s presidential primary, I was a regular viewer of The Colbert Report, which I thought had a much stronger satirical edge than The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. But after a nonstop election season, I’m burned out on political humor. It’s easy to laugh when the candidates spend their days giving speeches and theorizing about how they might govern. But now that the election is over, our leaders have moved on to the serious and thankless task of running the county. We would do well not to smirk as they make serious policy decisions, even if means giving bears a free pass.
