If you haven’t seen Uncle Jay Explains the News, you’re missing out on some good satire. Each week, Uncle Jay’s tongue-in-cheek weekly review of the news is posted on his website. Usually, it can be found on YouTube by Tuesday, or Wednesday at the latest.  If you have time to go back through his archives, you’ll get to hear his take on Chinese toys, Congressional Recesses, and even Britney Spears and Anna Nicole Smith.

This week, Uncle Jay explains how government is like Mom and Dad. Or maybe not so much.
