Comedy Congress

A miserable, sinking economy and rancorous debate in Washington D.C. over everything from torture to swine flu—just when politics is enough to make you cry, it's usually best to laugh instead. In its own unique way, Comedy Congress is always up to the challenge. Who says humor can't reign in an era of hope?  The unintentional humor flowed throughout the first three months of the Obama Administration and we’re here to cover it all:  Nancy Pelosi did her best impersonation of a punching bag while Arlen Specter did his best impersonation of Benedict Arnold.  Remember, the truth hurts far less when it's told by comedians.
