Michael Moore and Stephen Colbert, Strange Bedfellows

You knew it was only a matter of time before the Michael Moore “SiCKO” publicity train rumbled into Colbert Station.  In this clip, Stephen Colbert faces off with the dogged documentarian (via “satellite,” thanks to the faux host’s Blitzer-esque distancing technique) about the American healthcare system, only to discover that he and Moore share at least one thing:  a pronounced dislike of CNN.

Things to Do in Prison ... in the Philippines

Filipino prisoners feel the “funk of forty thousand years” and perform with eerie skillfulness the entire music video for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” In case you needed it, this is further proof that the world remains a very strange place. A must-see, especially on a Friday. (Via BoingBoing)

Chertoff’s Colon Our Last Defense?

Keith Olbermann rips homeland security czar Michael Chertoff a new, er, orifice, humorously parsing out what Bush’s master of disaster could have been thinking when he announced he had a “gut feeling” a terror attack might be imminent despite having “no credible intelligence,” in the words of a back-pedaling White House.

Vive la Velorution!

By Zuade Kaufman

The French didn’t invent the wheel, but with their latest urban project they’re reinventing how it’ll be used in their beloved capital.  On July 15, Mayor Bertrand Delanoë and other green-minded Parisians were on hand at the launching of the “Velib’ ” program, which makes some 10,600 public-use bicycles available at 750 stations throughout the world’s most visited city.

Firefighters’ Group Disses Giuliani

Not everyone buys Rudy Giuliani’s 9/11-generated alter ego: “America’s Mayor.”  The International Association of Firefighters is out to make its case that Giuliani’s leadership after the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks was not as stellar as the Republican presidential candidate would have voters think.
