Heckuva Job: Comedy Central's New Satire, 'Lil' Bush,' Takes A Cartoon Look At The President

6/11/2007 8:30pm EDT
George Bush
NEW YORK (AP) - Like most political satire, ''Lil' Bush'' pinpoints the logical extreme of real life.

Take its title character. Lil' George Bush is a pushy if none-too-swift lad making mischief with his pals from Beltway Elementary: Lil' Condi, Lil' Cheney and Lil' Rummy (pint-size versions of Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld). Another thing: Lil' George resides in the White House.

Oh, sure, this new Comedy Central cartoon show does take lil' liberties with the truth. For instance, ''Lil' Bush'' is set in the present, yet George H.W. (not George W.) Bush is the na...
