Sing for Change Obama

I thought Democrats were hipper than this.

Well, there was that Will.i.am video...

Truly funny

Equally obnoxious to both candidates -- only SNL has the guts to do this.

David Letterman Reacts to John McCain Suspending Campaign

Funny as always, but goes on a little long.

Hey, give him a break -- he announced his candidacy on the show.

McCartney Stands up to Terror

There are many things I may not agree with Paul McCartney about, but I've always thought there was something really principled and decent about him.

The Guardian reports that despite death threats, he plans to go through with a concert in Israel to celebrate the nation's 60th anniversary.

"I do what I think and I have many friends who support Israel," McCartney told Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.

I remember in the months after 9/11, when the various political factions in the U.S. and elsewhere started sniping at each other again, McCartney chastised them for not standing with President Bush and Prime Minister Blair as they struggled to confront terrorists -- two men I doubt he shares much with in terms of political and social views.

I think he saw that something more was at stake than petty politics.

Cruise Takes It

An unidentifiable Tom Cruise stealing the show in Tropic Thunder.

Probably his best dance bit since "Risky Business."

Edit: YouTube pulled down the clip I had posted, so here's a different one.

Tropic Thunder

Crude, disgusting, profane -- an excruciatingly accurate satire about big-budget Hollywood war movies, and about the movie industry in general.

If you've seen Apocalypse Now, Platoon, Full Metal jacket, etc., you'll get it.

Tom Cruise is the real surprise in this one, and he effectively steals the show.
