A conversation with a fellow godless, baby-killing sodomite today and the failed efforts of another political blogger to find something funny against liberalsÂ helped me realize the undeniable truth of it all: conservatives arenÂ’t funny.Â We have the thought-provoking wit of Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo, and countless others, while the other side has. . . well, thatÂ’s the problem.
The core of this quandry lies with the audience.Â Ellis Weiner, some Jewy liberal, said it best in his article Â“Why Conservatives ArenÂ’t Funny Â“:
These are the people who parrot, on cue, the latest talking point that Â“liberalsÂ” are Â“full of rageÂ” because they Â“hate America.Â” But all you have to do is tap a Dittohead on the shoulder and youÂ’ll hear that something, or everything, has gone Â“wrong.Â” Things arenÂ’t Â“the way theyÂ’re supposed to be.Â” Grievance, injustice, the feeling that somewhere (probably Â“HollywoodÂ”) some pampered poof is living high on the hog while we Â— the real people, the decent people, GodÂ’s people Â— have to take it on the chin, is the emotional background music to every Red State day.
ThereÂ’s been plenty of studies suggesting correlations between humor and intelligence , humor and creativity , and humor and social competence .Â IÂ’ve been trying to think of something funny to say on this topic, but I canÂ’t.Â Shit, maybe IÂ’m becoming one of them!Â Ha!Â Okay, that was funny.
