And here's why you have to tune into Hot Potatoes each day. The JibJab boys have produced a new on-line video starring Dubya and Flipflop. You remember the first one, of course -- where Dubya called Flipflop a "liberal wiener" and Flipflop called Dubya a right-wing nut job to the tune of "This Land." Well, JibJab's back with a spoof sung to the tune of "I Wish I Were in Dixie" -- only Dixie becomes D.C. Click here and tell your friends that you found it on Hot Potatoes.
