I don't usually do this but...

Dennis at Dead Things on Sticks (one of my favourite working-writer blogs which often crosses into politics) calls our attention to this wonderful monologue from Craig Ferguson . This blog doesn't often get political but this is really about media and politics ... give it a click - important points made expertly. Afterwards, head over to read Dennis' post and watch the other just as serious but less funny video he has embedded... it's getting ridiculous over there.
