    But they got off to an incredibly slow start. For the first few days after the Iranian election, it was obvious to a lot of people that something big was happening in Iran, but you would never have known it from watching cable news.

    Is it any wonder the Star Tribune is bankrupt? I liked the Harris cartoon, but the Star just sucks. :rolleyes:

    Call me slow, but im not decided what statement the video is making.. is it for or against Obama?
    Is it saying he's doing poorly, or that people expect alot of him

    But good video, I really liked it

    Neither(or both?). Watch some of Jib Jab's other videos, they rarely take a side in politics, and prefer to poke fun at both sides(and everything in between).

    Nah, Jibjab dosen't take sides. You can tell by the fact when Obama was shown this, he cracked up :D (there's a video of it somewhere in the Jibjab blog).

    I thought it was slightly skewed against Obama, though that could be my leftist bias showing. And I probably took some stuff as serious.

    Anyway, a cartoon that isn't about the US or Iran(ian elections).
