The comedic material emanating from Washington D.C., and state capitols across the country, is enough to make any sitcom writer jealous, even if most of that comedy is unintentional. Our motto on Comedy Congress is that just when politics makes you want to cry, it’s usually best to laugh. Today we laugh at the shrill hysteria of the healthcare reform debate, the perpetual Sarah Palin tour, Osama bin Laden being read his Miranda rights and more. Tomorrow we’ll probably cry about our lost job, but today join us in laughing at the madness of it all—the truth hurts far less when it’s told by comedians.
