For the first time in it’s 80 years of existence, New Yorker Magazine has endorsed a Presidential candidate: John Kerry. The editorial is pretty long, but definitely worth a read if you have the time and inclination. They rip Bush apart on nearly every issue in clear, fact-based terms and admit that, while certainly not perfect, Kerry is far preferable to another four years of Shrub.

roadster_guy and I went to see Team America on Friday night. It wasn’t a total disappointment, but it wasn’t nearly as funny as I’d been hearing from reviews and friends who have seen it. There were parts that were really funny, but a lot of the humor felt forced and shrill, as if they were trying too hard to be funny, and there was WAY too much vulgarity just for vulgarity’s sake. I love vulgar humor if it’s funny, but they poured it on as if the sheer volume of bad words was supposed to be funny in itself. Plus, even though the faces of the puppets were really well animated and technically they did a great job acting it out, marionettes are creepy, and watching an entire movie done with them is slightly disturbing.
