Final Christmas at the Tush Whitehouse

Ubu Hour
program date: 
Sun, 11/30/2008

It's the final Christmas at the Tush Whitehouse.  Dubya's mother, Babs, gets to work rallying relatives to appropriate all the furnishings before the new first family moves in, while Prick Cheney works Dubya overtime in signing over everything to their corporate allies. It's the final chapter in the Ubu Hour's hilarous but tragic look at the Tush Administration. Everyone has been asking us, what is the Ubu Hour going to do, now that we don't have these clowns to make fun of anymore.
