MadTV’s approaching 12 years - no easy task. Not been a faithful follower but some moments, some characters are genius. Much better than Capitol Hill on CSPAN (or anywhere else)!

MadTv has never been funny.  It’s nice to see things haven’t changed

Another iRaq must-see:

iRaq (Which is Arabic for Vietnam)

The weather in iRaq is generally Sunni in the north and Shiite in the south, with some Kurdstorms in the far, far north.

Great MadTV follow-up to TD satire! If only politicians were required to qualify first with a decade in stand-up.
