NEW YORK, June 21, 2007 -- The road to the White House just got a lot more congested! comedycentral.com, the Emmy�-nominated and Webby� Award-winning Web site, announced today the launch of COMEDY CENTRAL's first stand alone political humor Web site Indecision2008.com. The launch of this new site firmly cements COMEDY CENTRAL as a player in the 2008 presidential race and marks the network's 16th year covering political elections.

"The presidential election has long been a source of comedic inspiration for our shows and our network," said Erik Flannigan, executive vice president, digital media, COMEDY CENTRAL. "With Indecision2008.com, COMEDY CENTRAL is augmenting the best of our on-air coverage with programming exclusively created for the Web audience which is cordially invited to participate and join in the fun."

Indecision2008.com revels in the absurdity of campaign news on a daily basis. Every day, users can watch and discuss new video clips relevant to the 2008 race from the "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," "The Colbert Report," "Lil' Bush," COMEDY CENTRAL stand-up specials and more. For up-to-the-minute coverage of election happenings, the site's own blogger, "The InDecider," will stir the pot and scour the Web for the most absurd campaign tidbits, ripe for user commentary and contributions.

The Indecision2008.com homepage will also offer a variety of au courant widgets that provide at-a-glance campaign factoids (Number of Google Hits for Candidate Name + 'Polygamy': Mitt Romney = 144,600; Dennis Kucinich = 33,500), interactive polls and handy "Marching Orders" for conservatives and liberals alike (i.e. Today's Conservative Talking Point: Jack Bauer is truly the greatest living American. Today's Liberal Agenda: Just to switch things up, try blaming America second today.) Many of these widgets can be taken and embedded on users own blogs and profile pages.

Users looking to wear their InDecisiveness proudly as they roam the Web, Indecision2008.com will offer "More Pork" -- a section on the site featuring downloads such as IM icons and wallpaper.

Upcoming Indecision2008.com features will include an expanded offering of widgets, a public forum to discuss all things political, online fantasy gaming and UGC video contributions in the spirit of the election.
