JibJab has reached prime-time with “It's Good to Be in DC.” 

I heard excerpts from this on the radio earlier today, and then it was shown on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno later this evening.

Between JibJab and Jon Stewart, it's been an amusing political process. JibJab's This Land cartoon raised eyebrows and even a lawsuit (in which JibJab came out the victor). When I think what it would be like without at least some form of levity, it's a rather depressing thought.

But all joking aside - regardless of your political position or persuasion, VOTE THIS YEAR!!! VOTE!

Add this up: One shopping cart, one jet engine, and one crazy, crazy man.

What do you get? A Darwin Award just begging to be won.

But it's cool.

Scoble to Gates: "It's time for another memo Bill. Just don't take so long this time."

Also: "Tell him to get me a Tablet PC that rocks so that I can keep my job cause I really don't want to work for Donald Trump."

There's more, and it's worth reading. Important stuff for the radar. Right on, Robert.
