"Hockey Moms" React To Palin And What's Behind CNN Reporter?

It's time to praise the business of being funny during a week when we could sure use a good laugh.

First, the video clip is one of the more clever parodies of Gov. Sarah Palin. It's a "swift boat"-style "expose" of her hockey mom credentials.

Second--and there but for the grace of God--here's a clip on LiveLeak of two guys pretending to make out during a CNN report on Lehman Bros. I love how long it takes the camera person to realize what's happening behind the reporter before adjusting the shot's framing.
