The Daily Show makes fun of President Obama's “I didn't know about this until I heard it on the news” explanations for recent scandals.
In what has become an annual ritual, President Obama filled out his NCAA Tournament Bracket for ESPN earlier this week. (Spoiler alert: He says nice things about Gonzaga, but doesn't pick them to win it all.)
Which prompted the second annual ritual of Republicans complaining that the president was spending time filling out his bracket than doing something more important. To read the Politico roundup, click here.
But it seems the GOP misses an important element of this: Obama is giving thousands — maybe even hundreds of thousands — of college basketball fans a chance to say they're smarter than him when it comes to picking winners in the tournament.
If you're on Facebook, someone has probably sent you a link to this video, with Jimmy Fallon and Michelle Obama doing the evolution of Mom Dancing.
Not to be outdone, conservative pundit Michelle Malkin now has her own video, which she calls The Evolution of Liberal Dance.
Which one you think is more funny may depend partly, although not entirely, on where you fall in the political spectrum.
Senate Democrats may decry the filibuster now, but in 2005, when they were in the minority, they were all for it.
Note the young guy speaking in favor of it at the start. Sen. Patty Murray shows up about 1:40 in.
It's only 50 days to election, which means there are about 47 days for Saturday Night Live to find good political material for their opening sketches.
They've got a new Obama this year in Jay Pharoah — Fred Armisen did a good handoff — but Jason Sudeikis returns as Mitt Romney.
Vice President Joe Biden named the wrong WSU in a speech recently.
No, not our WSU. But who knew there were so many of them?
Crowd was quick to correct him.
Spin Control returns after some light days with a fun video for your viewing enjoyment.
Why this video? you may ask.
Because Colbert “interviews” an old friend and colleague, Kim Barker of ProPublica, for part of the video. And, of course, because it's funny.
Saturday Night Live's opening sketch, as usual, was political.
Not the funniest ever, but a few good moments.
Some folks at Fox Business seem to think so.
Are they right, or is this a real stretch? Click on comment to weigh in.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's take on polls…with a slight problem on the spelling.
An independent conservative group, which apparently prefers Michele Bachman over Rick Perry as the Republican presidential nominee, has released a new video.
Perry, not surprisingly, has denounced it as “blatantly false.”
Most notable thing about this ad: The narrator has a great Texas twang. (So great that it might not be real?)
If you missed last night's GOP presidential candidate debate on FOX, from Ames, Iowa, here's a highlight reel courtesy of TalkingPointsMemo
Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., may have thought he was making a clever literary reference. He apparently didn't realize the connotations.
Lamborn later apologized.

Watch, then go back to sipping ice tea in the shade.
Sarah Palin explains the importance of Paul Revere. Did she get it wrong?
She says no, she didn't.
So it might not be the version you learned in American History (or American Lit). But it's not as if Henry Wadsworth Longfellow got it completely right, either. For the ultimate source of what happened on that night in 1775, go inside the blog.
Jon Stewart delivers a damning critique of Donald Trump.
Not for his aborted presidential campaign, his questioning of Obama's birth certificate or his coiffure. But for his pizza savvy. And it may be the most devastating Trump tromping of all time.
In a bipartisan move, he also asks the question that's on everyone's mind about Rep. Anthony Weiner's not quite unequivocal denial of that Twitter posting. Click here to see that inside the blog.
Talking Points Memo prepared this two-minute “Greatest Hits” of the late, grate Donald Trump campaign.
For those who are tired of the over-analyzing of the political significance of Osama bin Laden's death.
For those who couldn't stay awake to catch the Colbert Report, here's his take on the suggestion that President Obama is using Osama bin Laden's death to boost his poll numbers.
There's nothing political about a full moon, even a “super moon” like we're scheduled to have on Saturday.
But this is a pretty good reminder to go out and look at the sky at moonrise tomorrow, because this is a rare phenomenon.
If the weather cooperates, that is.
