Bizarre amazon review of the day

David Cross' "Shut Up, You Fucking Baby", reviewed by L. Hicklin

"As an Arrested Development fan, I bought this just for David Cross, but there's no Tobias here! It's funny, sometimes extremely so, but I think he gets too involved with politics, somthing dangerous for comedians."

Ok, let's look at that last line again, shall we? "...He gets too involved with politics, somthing (sic) dangeorus for comedians." Frankly, this deserves a massive "what the hell?" Since when was political satire off the menu? Since when did it not in fact often serve to raise a comedian's profile? Everyone from Stephen Colbert to Rory Bremner might not agree with this guy.
