Who's Your Baghdaddy: Or How I Started The Iraq War

If you wanna understand the debt crisis, the final takeover of make believe over reality among way-too-many members of the US Political and Media Establishments, you need to go see Who's Your Baghdaddy, an award winning musical playing until August 13th in Washington D.C.

It provides a reminder of what happens when your government wants to imbibe fantasy and fanaticism over empiricism and reason--while forcing you to laugh your arse off. The show is hysterical, with the ironically, appropriately named "Curveball" (our "source" on WMD) doing a rap with his interrogator, and the much-more-fun-than-pundit Funditz singing to you about all the idiocy accepted as reality circa 2001-2003 that got us into this war. There is much more, but I don't wanna spoil it.

Oh, and if you need another reason to go, the show was produced by donor and supporter of progressive causes, Charlie Fink. I have the pleasure of knowing Charlie personally, and he's a great guy.

I loved it. And you need some comedy right now, if you have been following the insanity of the past two weeks. So go, and for at least a short while enjoy yourself while watching how screwed we are.
