Over at Townhall, conservatives are enjoined to invent comical jokes about Barack Obama. The column is written by someone named Jon Sanders, who looks and writes like a singing weatherman on a Pop Rocks & Champale bender.
According to the New York Times, which rumor has it is a newspaper of some repute in New York City, professional comedians can find very little to joke about concerning Sen. Barack Obama.
There is a joke in the preceding paragraph. No, really. Here:
According to the New York Times, which rumor has it is a newspaper of some repute in New York City [<-- joke], professional comedians can find very little to joke about concerning Sen. Barack Obama.
In American Heartland, you do not read New York Times, New York Times reads you. Or something.
Feel free to examine the rest of the theorizing as to why Obama isn't being made fun of adequately. Suffice it to say, there is no acknowledgment of the fact that one reason this is tricky is that at some point during the past eight years, the GOP circus train jumped the tracks and slammed into a confetti factory, causing an explosion at the popcorn warehouse next door. And John McCain is proposing to put on a big red clown nose & some comedy breasts, back that choo-choo up, and ram it into a banana peel distributorship. How can you compete with that?
All that aside! Let's get to the fun! Here are two proposed jokes whereby Townhall hopes to make Barack Obama a laughingstock such that even your liberal fascist socialist sister would rather giggle than fuck him:
How many Barack Obamas does it take to change a light bulb? Just one. He holds the bulb, thinks the world revolves around him, and calls it change you can believe in.
Barack Obama dies and goes to heaven. St. Peter meets him at the Pearly Gates. "So this is heaven," Obama says. "What's it like, healthcare up here?" St. Peter misunderstands him as saying he'd like Hell and didn't care for it up here, so he shrugs and sends him down there. "Cool," Obama says upon arrival. "It really IS just like Canada's!"
Wow. The comedy gap has surely been bridged. The nation will be sniggering uncontrollably at that Obama fellow by Tuesday next. No doubt. But as usual it is the comments that reveal the true funny:
Obama was a community organizer- where I come from they're called Bloods or Crips.
Oh, its Obama.
Emersom pretty big ears ya got there Barack!
Might as well get our laughs now because if Snob-Bama and Michelle get in - humor will be outlawed!
Question: What's the difference between Louis Farrakhan and Barack Hussein Obama?
Answer: Not much but Farrakhan can play sing!
Question: What's the difference between Hugo Chavez and Barack Hussein Obama?
Answer: Not much but Hugo's wife knows when to shut-up!
I submit that the most salient reason professional comedians, who are often enough dopes themselves, are having trouble making fun of Obama, is that the people who are most willing to laugh at him are at the moment horrible insane sociopaths who can connect to "humor" only under strictly controlled laboratory conditions for purposes of dispassionate scientific analysis.
