Comedian Tracey Ullman, and former Brit, has become a US citizen, right in time to start using her fellow Americans as material for her new show "State of the Union."
Here's a clip of Ullman channeling another naturalized US citizen: Arianna Huffington. If Ullman's impersonation of the Greek-born progressive blogger is a sign of things to come, I can't wait to catch entire episodes of the show. Stay tuned for more clips — the show premieres March 30 on Showtime.
Aw, this retrospective from the Young Turks almost made me a little nostalgic with their parting tribute to the fallen GOP candidates. Some highlights — Rudy Giuliani answering his wife's phone call during a speech, and Mike Huckabee answering God's phone call during a speech (no joke). There's no voicemail in heaven.
John McCain can now focus on the Democrats, but we will all be deprived some classic entertainment. I mean, One Moment in Time! The Democrats are much less amusing.
Politicians are in high gear to be seen and heard these days, but while they're rigidly standing at their respective podiums, suited up and ready to argue the pros and cons of this or that — we're busy trying to determine which muppets they most resemble. Cuz it's all one big puppet show in the end, right?

Scoring only 15 percent of the vote, behind both McCain and Mitt Romney, his endorsement is nonetheless a big boon for McCain, who can add this to his mounting momentum.
Now that it's essentially a two-man race for Republicans, are you happy with your options?
2008 kicked off with the breathless anticipation of traditional campaign faves: Iowa, New Hampshire, tiny whisperings of South Carolina. But while the frontrunners continued to pound the pavement, themselves, and each other, one (who bizarrely keeps leading in national polls regardless of his seeming obliviousness to the campaign) kept out of the snow altogether.
Rudy Guiliani's embraced a new method of campaigning: just don't. Now, different from the Fred Thompson method of napping in the La-Z-Boy 'til it's over, Guiliani is branding this anti-campaign strategy "Florida, Florida, Florida." The state's 57 delegates are bundled in a "winner take all" prize. Chasing big numbers, he's committed to spend his time not with a broad cross-section of the electorate but by concentrating almost exclusively on Florida, Illinois, Missouri, New York, California, Georgia, and New Jersey.
