One thing to be said for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Restore Sanity and/or Fear Rally today in Washington: they didn’t pull the transparent trick that Glenn back did last month with his Restore Honor Rally. Beck, the right-wing talker, used his supposedly non-partisan rally to rather blatantly sling a right-wing political agenda. Notch.
The fate of our country won't be decided by a politician. It will be determined by a comedian.

After months of distribution hell, the Jewsploitation spoof "The Hebrew Hammer" will burst onto the large and small screens this Chanukah season.

On Monday, July 7, Comedy Central will premiere the first of a six-part series called, "Heroes of Jewish Comedy." Unfortunately, the series suffers for being a clip job not up to its subject. Less documentary and more comedy would help.
