No, not funny at all, considering that if Hitler was running Germany now, Olbermann and his MSM buddies would be praising how the trains run on time, and the U.S. wasn’t attacked by Germany, and how we can’t beat the Japanese because they are willing to die in suicide attacks, etc, etc.
I guess they must; the very name of their little fascist gang is about as ironic as a name could be.

The show, "Adventures in Music with Korla Pandit," was unlike anything seen before (not that that couldn't be said of many shows at the time).

 YouTube - Korla Pandit
Korla Pandit had a daily afternoon music TV show in LA back in the 1950s where he played his unique percussive style of Hammond organ while mystical cloud projections passed in the background and the camera focused in on his dreamy hypnotic eyes.
Rumors began to circulate that Pandit was actually hypnotizing women thru the TV and the concern got so great that the station cancelled him and he was replaced by an up and coming pianist - Liberace.
Korla slipped into obscurity, eventually playing organ at silent film revival houses in LA until Tim Burton cast him for a cameo as himself in Ed Wood.
