Every now and again I Google my name to see what pops up. Today, a pleasant blast from the past–a reminder that I was a spelling bee contender when I was 11. (Evidently, so were quite a few other kids!)

In his weekly radio show “Le Show,” Harry Shearer (comedian/Spinal Tap bassist/voice of many characters on “The Simpsons”) takes on current affairs with a generous dose of sarcasm. Parts of the show feature fake skits about real topics in the news. On yesterday’s show, Harry took on Tea Party activists in a very clever segment.
Rather than explaining the skit, you should listen to it on Harry’s site:
