The Great Right Hope?

I caught up with some old episodes of IFC's The Onion News Network this weekend, via Comcast On Demand. Some funny moments, although not a complete slam dunk, humor wise. Hopefully they'll get more consistent with time.

A couple of clips struck close to the home funny bone. This one is funny because its true, and also because they name check our buddy Ed Morrissey's Hot Air:

Man Becomes GOP Frontrunner After Showing No Interest In Government

On an earlier episode, they featured a breaking news alert about a Garrison Keillor sex tape getting released. It leads off this clip (NSFW, especially if you work for MPR).

Ear Of Genetically Modified Corn Begs For Death

A sex scandal was the first thing I thought of upon hearing the real Garrison Keillor alert yesterday that he's retiring in 2013. Given some of the man's past antics, anything is possible.
