It's been a long, hard year for George Bush, and that's a good thing as far as the wits at JibJab are concerned.
On Thursday, the satirically minded Spiridellis brothers plan to release a two-minute Internet video in which a cut-out image of the chief of state sings a hopeful song that 2006 is a happier new year.
"From Katrina, FEMA, bird flu, insurgents, Cindy Sheehan and Scooter Libby to Tom Delay...there were so many issues facing the President, we had to make the song lightening fast to squeeze them all in," according to a draft of a press release seen by CNET News.com.
The music for the cartoon, titled "2-0-5," will be a medley of New Year's Eve favorite "Auld Lang Syne" and the folk song "Turkey in the Straw."
As did the most recent JibJab video, "Big Box Mart," the new one will make its debut on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." After that, it will be available both on the JibJab Web site and at MSN Video.
