A Sequel To "This Land"

Do the JibJab guys have another hit parody piece in them? We'll find out tonight...

NEW YORK(AP) - From the creators of the political satire sensation "This Land" comes a sequel set to the tune of "Dixie." The online animation "Good To Be in DC!" features the presidential and vice presidential candidates along with Attorney General John Ashcroft, CBS News anchor Dan Rather, filmmaker Michael Moore, talk show host Rush Limbaugh and Jane Fonda.

...Running at 80 seconds, or about 30 seconds shorter than "This Land," the sequel was to debut on the Leno show Thursday and be available afterward at JibJab.com and AtomFilms.com. Spiridellis said "The Tonight Show" is paying an undisclosed amount for premiere rights.

Mika Salmi, chief executive of AtomShockwave Corp., said the company is preparing for an onslaught of traffic by arranging for more bandwidth and trying to sell more ads.

Update: "Good to be in DC!" is up at AtomFilms and JibJab.com

Can't wait! Their "This Land" was the best polticial commentary or summary I've seen thus far!

In keeping with the light-hearted election sites, I thought I'd share one that I've been trying to get people to visit (hopefully some of you have already heard about it). Back in the 80's Zippo lighters made a lighter with an elephant design and one with a donkey design. Now they've re-made a limited number of them and created a site (www.zippo.com) where you can vote for your favorite and show your political support. When you vote you're entered to win which ever you chose. Zippo will announce the winner before the actual election, but I can tell you that as of now, the elephant is way ahead. I hope that you'll all go there to vote and pass it along to your friends.

Just happened to catch it on Leno last night. It was pretty good. John Edwards certainly has the gay liberal vote. Leno also had a sketch where he interviewed Bush and then Bush did an interview of John Kerry. That also was pretty funny. Made me miss Leno's Saddam skits.

I was disappointed in it. All this time and they couldn't come up with something better than "in DC" and it was so short. "This land" was great - geez, all this time and they came up with something flat. Not worth the hype.
