conservative humor: that's a laugh...

doug giles, writing for townhall.com, wrings his hands over the way liberals mop the floor with right-wingers when it comes to being funny -- which, i gotta admit, is humorous all by itself, but not enough to make me fall out of my chair:

...why can't conservatives get their comedic act together? the liberals, on a 24/7 basis, are tossing us soft balls that we should be driving out of the park in a humorous, prime time, way. it's so easy it's stupid. all we have to do is just read the crap that the left does, out loud, and it's hilarious. we don't even have to be that imaginative and try to develop quips, as they provide an endless supply of ammunition. we couldn't make up the stuff they do even if we wanted to -- no one on the planet is that creative.

the secular left is an amalgam of mayhem, a veritable star wars bar scene, a rogue gallery of freaks, geeks, nuts, sluts, slick politico's and skanky ho's -- and we're letting them walk without skewering the living day lights out of them.


keep all of that in mind as you read giles' next two sentences:

what's wrong with us? we've become nicer than christ.


conservatives aren't looking so hot in the self-awareness department, either. and that's part of the reason why they generally suck at comedy. but that's a topic for another post...

"we've become nicer than christ."

Now THAT's comedy!
Christ of course was notorious for his low tolerance of sluts and beggars.

Conservatives lack anything even remotely similar to an imagination. Paranoid delusions, yes. Imagination, no.

"Funny" is watching conservatives try to figure out why they're not funny.
