Indecision 2008 site launched

Comedy Central has done something a little strange.

They've already started a site specifically for Indecision 2008, the Daily Show's Peabody-award winning segments that usually air during the election year, but with the field of candidates on both sides of the aisle fighting for their party's nomination over a year before their national conventions, well, I guess everybody's timetable has to be extended then too. Of course, I still remember the hilarious opening for the Indecision 2004 Election Night coverage, and I have a feeling that election night 2008 is going to be just as funny.

The producers of the Daily Show released DVD's for the previous election's coverage, and it is good to see them somewhat separate their Indecision content from the rest of the good natured satire that is the bread and butter of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. And there seems to be additional content written just for the site in the form of blogs. I don't think any of the onscreen personalities contribute to it, but there is still some funny stuff there, so if you are a fan of The Daily Show/Colbert Report, you should check it out.

And now, your moment of Zen.

Very cool.

I think that is the fastest post-to-comment ever.

And the blog does do something that you do as well... they have a caption contest, though your picture is never involved.

I love TDS and TCR, so this is very good news! Actually these two shows are the only ones (maybe one or two others-maybe)that i watch on TCC

I sort of wish we had Comedy Central up here... we get some of the shows, but there are others which look promising that never end up here.
