Fun Reading for tonight

How Hillary Clinton won the elections of 2008 and 2012.

The Presidential IM's: Bush explains his policy to Condi... All of the Presidential IM's are funny, and they can be found here.

To lighten up the tone, yet provide some 'useful' information that relates to class, check out these Fun Facts about Hezbollah, Iran, Hamas, North Korea, Syria. And now, just for good measure: The Patriot Act, Amnesty International, Haliburton, The United Nations,

How to spot a Terrorist.

Here is a game that teaches about the situation in Darfur...that's not really among my strongest current events knowledge, but it seems to do a good job, and it's good to learn more about. It does take a while to load, and a long time to play, but it does help you to understand the many things that people over there (and in many failed states) have to deal with every day.

Here is some information about "the next big humanitarian crisis" which is already happening, and has been happening for a while, the situation in Burma. Sorry that it's a wiki, but it does have good basic info...

Ok, I know this isn't really a reading...and it's not really current...but it's hilarious. It's a satirical Bush re-election speach, and here is a rehash of the Presidential debates. I think all sides will find them funny. There are other similar clips here.
