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.

Comedy is an art form. Pretty much sums up why they suck

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.

comedy, and specifically satire situates around lampooning the status quo... conservatism largely aspires to the status quo (whatever that may be subjectively.) I also think that strong conservatives put politics before comedy... anger and comedy don't mix... rush wouldn't be popular if he told jokes, o'reilly wouldn't be popular if he told jokes... Liberal comedians make their points through jokes... but the comedy comes first... Miller used to be funny, until his politics started coming before his humor... then he stopped being funny. My uncles are some of the most conservative motherf*ckers you'll meet, and they are freaking hilarious... but if you get them on politics... no f*cking jokes. serious business, because THIS COUNTRY IS GOING TO HELL.

if you think like that, nothing is funny.

Louis CK: I'm white, I can get in a time machine and get a front row seat whatever year I land in.

Liberals: Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha! (deep breath) Ah ha ha ha ha ha!
