Kill 'em with comedy, that's the way to do it.

This particular clip from 'Downfall', and a few others, have been used multiple times:

It's still usually funny, though. I watched this one more for its relation to Flatland, however. Politics are about who gets the money - it's all deeply tiresome. It's just factions fighting each other with pure self-interest at its core. Each side uses every type of deceit imaginable, constantly, and they all turn a complete blind eye to their own faults (and to deeper issues). Monkey business, indeed.

Re: every type of deceit imaginable, etc.

Yes, even without knowing all the ugly details of who is fucking over whom, we know politics is the lowest form of human life. Given what we know about life among the humans, that's really saying something.

"You might assume that the animated TV series "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" is for little girls, but Bronies would beg to differ. Bronies are adult men who sincerely LOVE the show, and aren't afraid to admit it. Many people are baffled, even angered, by Brony culture."
