Political Anti-Humor of the Day

In Pakistan, 3000 lawyers are now under arrest. I trust that will put an end to the lawyer jokes for a while, at least in Pakistan (of course there won't be many from Leno, Letterman, Stewart, or Colbert for a while for a different reason).

On a media note, I just heard CNN International's Zain Verjee employ the term "political prisoners" to describe the detainees, which certainly seems accurate. Neither the New York Times nor the Washington Post (nor, I'm guessing, pretty much anyone else in the corporate media) uses the term.
