Skewering the Tea Party on “Le Show”

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:

Sometimes dry humor and sarcasm shed light on an issue better than a more serious argument. This is such a case.
