To this day, we’ve never been able to sit through more than three minutes of Lil’ Bush, which is almost as difficult to bear and far less hilarious than a W. Bush speaking engagement. But the show’s talent coordinators, they get points. The animated Comedy Central series got going by telling us Iggy Pop and Jeff Tweedy would play Lil’ Rummy and Lil’ God, respectively (click here for the Tweedy bit), and now they announce that a momentarily “un-dumbed” (the script’s word, not ours) Jeb Bush would be played by none other than “hyper-literate prog-rocker” Colin Meloy. It’s a bona fide animated indie party over there. Here’s a bit of Colin’s portrayal of the next in line from the Bush dynasty.

Not abhorrent at all. Nice work Colin. Still not watching, though.

    I’d be eager to Meloy’s performance, but it is on the comedic abortion known as “Lil’ Bush.” I think I’ll pass. I do not understand what demographic they’re going for here.

    i’m pretty sure they could have just had some random guy say the colin meloy lines and nobody would know the difference. same goes for tweedy.

    This is every bit as funny as comedy central’s last show about bush “That’s my bush!”

  4. Tell me when Colin Meloy guest stars on The Simpsons, and maybe I’ll be interested, but being on a shitty Comedy Central animation?


  5. This show might be somewhat less than awful if the actual President wasn’t so laughably incompetent. Orobably not though, it’s unwatchable.
