Satire Will Set You Free

The one thing I really enjoyed on holiday in the United States was the quality of satire on television. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are bitingly funny programmes - there is nothing on Irish or UK television that compares.

Which is a pity really: it seems that people who watch satirical news reports are better informed about the 'real' news that those who don't. Maybe that's what we need for Lisbon II: a show that royally takes the piss out of both the Yes and the No campaigns and happens to reduce the "don't knows" vote along the way. Best way to spend tv licence money that I can think of right now.

And for an example of how good it gets check this out (ht to Richard Delevan for the link):
