"Good to be in D.C." was a bit slanted. "This Land" was much better, and original, although I must say that "Good to be in D.C." did a percent Dick Cheney.

They seemed to go after Kerry/Edwards a lot with the gay jokes. It wasn't too bad, but it wasn't quite as dead-on with both sides as the first.

Well they brought out Ashcroft as gay too, although the three guys holding up the Kerry/Edwards banner went further than any attacks on Bush/Cheney

Who's the guy that says"I go both ways in DC", and that one that appears with Michael Moore, holding the Bush Cheney board.

It looked like McCain saying "I go both ways in DC"
and Rush Limbaugh next to Michael Moore.

"Good to be in D.C." was the better of the two. My favorite part is when they show Al Gore with the "Will Work for Food" sign. Smiley

This Land is the better of the two, but not by much.  I also think that both slant slightly more anti-Kerry than they do anti-Bush.  They certainly aren't pro either side, but then again, comedy is all about pointing out mistakes.

Have any of you seen the "Vote Arnold" one? It's not as good, but still funny.

I'll go with Good to Be in DC, because I've heard it less.

"This Land" was better, for content and technically.

The "DC" cartoon looked a little too choppy, and seemed a little like a foreign film -- the words didn't quite match the mouth movements like they did with "This Land".

That, and I had a lot more out-loud laughs with "This Land" than with "DC".

just my $.02 worth   :-)
