Midnight Movie: Now This Is What Effective Political Humor Looks Like!

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

I'm trying not to get too excited about this thing - I bear deep emotional scars* from '04 and '00 (not to mention '98 and '94). And if you recall, our team also had the superior online mockery back in 04.

But damned if the sheer volume of really effective Making-McCain-look-ridiculous mockery isn't making me hopeful. Also, attention SNL: This guy is way funnier than the douche you have impersonating Obama right now. Hire him immediately. That is all.

More election hilars below the fold.

"..the fuck?!?"
