Tell Me You Haven't Forgotten JibJab!

The 2004 Presidential election in the United States triggered an enormous amount of spoofs and humor pieces. Probably the single best satire I saw was JibJab's "This Land". It wasn't laugh-out-loud funny, but it was remarkably well done and, surprisingly, seemed to amuse Bush supporters and Kerry supporters alike. It was also a massive success, becoming one of those web phenomena that penetrates the mainstream media.

Since then, the JibJab team have continued making similar Flash animations. None of them are up to the standard of "This Land", but they're still kind of fun. Just recently, "Second Term" premiered. Check it out. (But beware of an annoying interface - popup upon popup.)
