If you’re not familiar with Autotune the News, you should give them a listen; they’re pumping out some of the funniest political parody anywhere, lampooning the news, politicians and pundits alike with clever editing and some pretty mad musical skills. I love em. My personal favorite so far is Autotune # 6. (They seem to take particular pleasure in pounding on Katie Couric, which suits me just fine).

And perhaps the best unintended benefit of the vids, is that you’ll actually get a more accurate understanding of the news by watching these parodies than you will by following the MSM.

Maybe BP *SHOULD* Listen to James Cameron by American Elephant

People forget that in addition to Avatar and Titanic, Cameron also directed (warning: f-bomb ahead)…

..which is, after all, as reader Mookie reminds us, more or less how the Russians stopped their spills in the past…. “Only way to be sure.”

But something tells me the director of The Smurfs’ Adventures in Fern Gully didn’t have nukes in mind. And BP pretty much laughed him off anyway. Pity.



“Plug the Damn Hole!…I’m Going on Vacation!(Again)” by American Elephant

Apparently all the parties, golfing and vacations are tuckering poor Obama out…or perhaps the people running the administration are just tired of him getting underfoot, because this is the second time they’ve sent him away on vacation since his disastrous delay in responding to what is now, because of that delay, the biggest oil spill in American history.

But give him a break! Destroying health care, the auto industry, the housing sector, the economy, banking, international relations, individual liberty, the rule of law, your life savings and the environment is hard work!

Besides, it’s not like he didn’t leave the country with a clear, decisive plan of action in his absence — “Plug the damn hole!” he explained.

And people said he wasn’t qualified!

But before you worry that Obama is neglecting important duties to steal away another vacation in time of crisis, rest easy. While it’s true the Commander in Chief didn’t feel he could spare the time from his vital vacation obligations to honor our war dead at the traditional Memorial Day ceremonies at Arlington — he WILL, thankfully, make it back just in time to honor Paul McCartney at the White House and was able to squeeze in yet another fund-raiser for Barbara Boxer.

Nice to see he still has his priorities straight.
