After a flurry of missed hits and foul balls, Comedy Central scores a run with this hilarious and dead-on parody of the Bush administration. The cartoonists are clearly familiar with the alleged scandals and snafus of George Bush, Jr.'s White House. Finally, there is a comedy show that can take all the boring news and trite liberal criticisms of Bush and weave them into a sly, witty, and absolutely off-the-wall and ridiculous parody. The creators had the right idea changing Bush and his cabinet into Charlie Brown-like children. This is the only place you could find depictions of Dick Cheney and Condi Rice and call them "lovable" and "adorable." People with nostalgia for Dana Carvey's jibes at Papa Bush will enjoy the job the cartoon does at mocking the Elder Bush and his wife; the voice-over artist is almost as good as Dana.
I don't understand all the criticism surrounding this cartoon. The creators clearly have the same liberal sentiments as Michael Moore and his ilk, but they make huge efforts to put humor and good satire into their lampooning and criticism of the president. This is the cartoon all the Bush-bashers have been waiting for, and yet the reception has been frosty. Still, I hope Comedy Central and the creators of "Lil' Bush" keep going with this lovely gem of a comedy show.
