Lambasting Bush, Family Guy style

If you're a regular reader of my webzine, Clockwise Cat, then you know I am a huge fan of satire. Satire's stinging sardonic style (seems I'm a bit drunk on alliteration, eh?) is the perfect antidote to suicidal tendencies. In other words, if you're so mired in misery that you're tending toward self-homicide, satire might just lift you out of your funk by showing you the comedy in tragedy. True, the comedy is of the bitter variety rather than the pabulum sort, but still.

So anyway, one of my favorite satirical TV shows is Family Guy. It can get a bit crass at times (and sometimes the satirical sexism backfires - more about that later), but mostly it's just hilarious humor that mocks the inanity of society and life.

In this montage of clips, Family Guy makes vicious fun of Commander-in-Thief Bush. Granted, he's an easy target, but then, he deserves it, the fascist fuck.
