To some extent this thread reveals the stock right wing approach to comedy - high-school level derision of people for your own amusement and to get your fellow c-students to snigger. As practiced by professional media comedians Limbaugh and O'Reilly. We knew these buttheads in high school - they don't grow up or get serious and someone or something eventually kicks their asses - usually life itself. Look at the Fox guys. Addiction and sexual harassment issues - like permanent 12-year-olds. As they age they get bitter when the humor wears off and they can't escape the realization that the joke's on them for wasting their own life in struggling to make others feel as bad they do. But they earn their self-loathing.

Then you got the real comedians, who manage to swing wide, Stewart, Colbert, Chris Rock, Lewis Black and the SNL folks who take on everyone, all the Clintons and the variety of Bushes we've had to deal with.

The difference is, the good comedians point out the absurdity of our situation, but the Limbaughs and O'Reilly's and now our friend Grant struggle to make the real discourse more cartoon-land than anything else. They can only thrive in cartoon discourse.

I think Grant may be *this* close to learning something profound, and for this possibility alone i hope he is not banned......yet.

How about we all pretend to be Grant's politics professor(S)   Laughing

It's okay to vote for whoever you want.  It doesn't change your personality at all, unless your life is based on politics.  My mother voted for Bush... I was extremely angry, but I love my mother.

Besides,  I'd prefer Mickey Mouse over both the candidates right now...


And to everyone who is mad about anyone voting for McCain, look on the bright side (from your grass, that is): McCain is in his 70's, is fat, and has cancer.  He can't last long either way....

And that's why we're incensed about Palin.

I just thought of something..  

It is funny McCain made that comparison about Obama being a celebrity Like Britney and Paris.

Then He picks Palin to have a "Showgirl" on his ticket..  Really  who is more concerned with and "Using" Fame?

Imagine having that B*tch lording over you with her oppressive views....wow.....

People who thought it couldn't get worse than GW will have something on there hands if McCain gives his Vp a shot at it THrough folly or through being unable to finish his term...

I hope that we do not see this come to fruition.  

Think how close we are to having President Palin preside...
VP is not "sideshow"'
