Mort Sahl

We've recently discovered Mort Sahl, a wonderful political comedian.  We can't find his discussion of the Khrushchev visit to the US on YouTube, but it is available at iTunes.

Here is a 30-second taste of the genius wit:

Would you believe he is (or was) a democrat and wrote some of the jokes President Kennedy used in his speeches?

Yes, what you see and hear in the above video is a Democrat's view of Capitalism back in the 60's. 

So much hope and change has occurred since then.  It isn't Mort Sahl's Democrat Party anymore.

Mr. Sahl is 85 and still with us.  Here is his website and Wikipedia page.
