From The CC Insider…
UCB-er Aaron Glaser wrote and directed this political ad parody starring 30 Rock's Sue Galloway as an Anarchist mayoral candidate from Indianapolis. An anarchist politician would probably come up with crazy laws designed to undermine and eradicate our delicately balanced system. In other words, they'd cause far less damage than the average politician.
What's funny is if she was actually running in these midterm elections, she wouldn't even be thaaat fringe compared to all the crazy witch virgins and Yosemite Sam street preachers campaigning this year. If you really want to be fringe these days, you have to sacrifice a baby to your goat god while proposing we send all Muslims to the planet Muslamia on a rocket ship fueled by blood diamonds.

If you're like me, you thought the protesters at the G20 Summit were just gathering in Pittsburgh for the free tear gas. But it turns out they're there on behalf of some real issues, dozens of them in fact. And, as John Oliver reported on last night's Daily Show, that seems to be their problem. If they could just be like the Teabaggers and focus on one cause, say the plight of patchouli farmers or government subsidized Che t-shirts, their efforts would be a lot more effective.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.
