Festive Left Friday Blogging Too: Cartoon of the day

Canadian comedy is eerily prescient–and better than US news

Dave Foley of The Kids in the Hall anticipates Glenn Beck, back when the latter was still mumbling drunkenly behind a 7-11 store somewhere. Keitho (when he’s on, he’s really really on) points out the eerie parallels.

And yes, the paranoid hysteria is being whipped up against Russia again, and “killer bees” (i.e. the Latin American left, which was always independent of Moscow–and yes, even Cuba had its squabbles with Teh Russkies). So this is even more eerily prescient than even Dave and Keitho could know.

See, this is why we export so many comedians to the US. We could export political commentators, too; trust me, when Jon Stewart is their number-one newsman, they’d never know!

Festive Left Friday Blogging: Chavecito thanks his tweeps

And where better to do it than in his home town of Sabaneta, in his home state of Barinas, with his amigo Evo alongside as they inaugurated an education centre?

In just 48 hours, and with only two tweets to his “candanga” name as of the publication of that note, Chavecito had already racked up over 100,000 followers. Not too shabby. Better than that douchebag Juanes in a similar timespan, I’ll bet.

And he’s a lot less garrulous on the tweeter than Keith Olbermann snarked that he’d be, too.

PS: No, Evo’s not on yet. I checked. There are about half a dozen payasos impersonating him, though. Can’t find the real El Ec, either.

Eva Golinger has just informed the Facebookers that Chavecito is now on the tweeter. His handle is @chavezcandanga.

Now I’m gonna have to sign up for yet another social-networking time-suck (sigh, grrr), if only so I can figure out how many times I can write “te amo” in 140 characters.

Life’s a beeyotch.
