Craig Ferguson on the U.S. election campaign

This Magazine Staff

Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson totally nailed it in Thursday night’s monologue on the U.S. election campaign (run time: 8:45):

In it, Ferguson delivers a passionate criticism of media election coverage, voter apathy and the circus around Sarah Palin. I hope a lot of people see it, especially the part where he says he believes U.S. voters are smarting than the news people are giving them credit for. I know whenever I go down to the States I’m really pleased with how Americans are always friendly and willing to help out others. I think Americans are great. Too bad about their government, and the side of them that is shown to the world through pop culture and media. But I’m with Ferguson on this one — I have faith that voters will do the right thing in November and come out in large numbers to support Obama.
