Here's the new JIBJAB Video that pokes fun of our election and candidates. Do you think anyone is going to be offended?

After all the whining over the New Yorker cover, I thought this might add fuel to the fire. Apparently too many people don't understand satire.

Personally, I see them as two different things. The humor in jib jab is way harder to mistake for anything other than satire. The New Yorker cartoon, not so much.

I will be surprised if you find many people that are offended by this.

(didn't really need that to have a ?)

satire is satire, it shouldn't need to be obvious. if anyone's offended by satire, it'll be the lowest common denominator, and they seem to be offended by everything except reality tv, screw 'em.

'And our legacy needs saving!'...

Oh that was bloody fantastic. Laugh? I haven't laughed like that in ages from some thing on the net.

Cheers for that.

I have heard it said that the reason there are no Obama jokes is that Obama is not funny. He's too serious to make fun of. Hope this video puts that notion to rest. I loved the my little pony bit.

McCain in the hospital was great too.

That was excellent! Thanks for posting! I was not at all offended. I don't know why anyone would be, but I'm absolutely certain that some will find something that offends their sensibilities.

I loved it!

I thought this was a hilarious film, even though I thought the New Yorkers attempt at satire was tasteless.


That is probably because their intent was to satirize an ignorant view of Obama, but they ended up satirizing Obama instead.

Thats of course unless something claimed as being satire isn't actually satire.


You see if I want to satirize you, then I will take something you said, and blow it up to ridiculous proportions.

What the New Yorker did was take something that the Right is saying about Obama and actually drew Obama out to be all of these things, but in a comedic fashion.


That isn't satire. That would be akin to me wanting to fight the guy who hurt my sister but actually hitting my sister, and then claiming I was just defending her.

Great dogs B H. They look like great companions.

I agree with your comment on the jibjab as well. These have always cracked me up.

Hey you can now put yourself in your own jibjab too but gosh darn you have to me a member of jibjab.

Ok, this is just funny...


And thats all... and its dammed funny....


The only real offensive part is downplaying McCains time in a gook prision camp...




This is satire... and this jibjab is 1000X's better then the one they made last election, the 'This land is your land' one...

in fact, i think i need to show people this...

I love jibjab. They are great.

This one was funny. I noticed they didn't spend much time on Obama. Guess he really doesn't say much.


JibJab does it again!

Very well put together by JibJab and I laughed through it all. Obama needs to realize that in America we can make fun of people with satire and we could care less if they're offended or not. It was funny.

Very nice and funny video.

It all made me think of the muppetshow, because all this is are puppets on strings to entertain.

Offended? No way!!

That was great. I really like those videos because they are well made and not cheesy.

Hubby is a Bob Dylan fan and had to listen to it twice. hehe
