Dennis Miller, Ann Coulter(I guess), that Daily Show copycat that was on Fox for a while.

It's all awful. Do conservatives themselves in general find this stuff funny? Do they find non conservative humor funny?

I refuse to believe that this stuff sucks just because I don't agree with the ideology behind it. Maybe someone can explain why conservative humor always falls flat.

Sarcasm in general is only occasionally funny.

The portrayals like Tina Fey and some of the older SNL debate stuff is funny. Mocking Hillary, Bill, Bob Dole, George HW Bush, etc is pretty good stuff.

Miller has never impressed me. Who is good at political humor?

O'Reillys buddy Stewart is pretty good sometimes.

Please keep in mind, conservatives cannot freely make fun of liberals because the PC landmines are everywhere

Dennis Miller is funnier than any one of the liberal comedians. I'll take the Blue Collar Comedy Tour over any of the liberal comedian concerts. And the funniest jokes I hear from friends are the non-PC ones that make people like Cantrell cry in his Zima.

Watch some of the old Dean Martin roasts. Watch All in the Family reruns. Some of the funniest poo ever on TV. Couldn't do it today.

I have an idea. How about we put a stop to the "calling out" of lefties vs. righties. It's moronic and gets us no where fast. I promise you guys will be ok if you let go of the sports-team mindset that seems to plague your political worlds...and who knows, you might even broaden your horizons of understanding.

Nah...conservative republicans spend their days working.

Not sitting around the house playing XBox all day and trying to think up funny things to say like liberal Democrats.
