Special Olympics Update

Jon Stewart punctures the hypocrisy of the U.S. and makes us laugh at the same time.

You've got to love John Stewart. There is always a crazy amount of hypocrisy whenever China is the subject of conversation.

I would love to see the Chinese propoganda machine employ more sarcasm in its nationalistic efforts: "Oh, its bad for a 9 year old girl to lip synch at OUR events, when you do it every year at YOUR superbowl" [laughter and bonding-over-a-shared-joke ensue]

It would be great if the Chinese propaganda machine would focus group the most basic stuff Ed. From a little humour to the scary rhetoric on Tibet (smash and crush the Dalai clique) they could only improve the Chinese dialogue with the larger and outside world.

My friends in high places tell me I'm not the first to suggest this and that it's not going to happen any time soon though which suggests Adland is occupying the place that the Government needs to in communications.
