Breitbart, the whiny little biatches of the conservative chattering class.

The Onion makes fun of alot of stuff. Why, one of my very favorite old pieces of theirs is pro-deregulation and makes fun of nanny-statism.

They should make their own Onion. They could call it the American Thinker.

Didn't they try to make a right-wing comedy TV show? And didn't it get cancelled before it came back from its first commercial break?

When a GOP Congressman believes the Onion's Abortionplex article, I think we can safely assume right wingers "don't get it."

It's a classic case of misdirection, a comedic attempt to distract voters from Obama's lifestyle, including lavish Halloween parties thrown by Hollywood elite and taking money-sucking vacations on our dime.

I don't even know how to respond to this...

I'd respond with "that party was for the children of soldiers you horrible prick".

Well, stop being so ripe for satire, and The Onion will stop making fun of you.
 
2012-02-07 11:29:09 AM
Well, you could try being funny yourselves. Of course, last time conservatives tried being funny, we got the Half Hour News Hour.

Attention Breitbart: The Onion is not your personal erotica site.

There is already a right-wing counterpart to The Onion - the Breitbart group of sites.

Oh, that's not satire.

This sketch from the show should explain why the show failed. I am in agreement with the intended sentiment of the sketch, yet I cannot deny that the sketch is not humourous due to a lack of subtlety and an extension of the intended joke for far longer than was necessary.

I thought The Right had their own Onion, and it was called "Hot Air". I mean, it's satirical, right?

How about with "Yes, because the president playing guitar with country stars while New Orleans drowned and clearing brush in Texas while the economy collapsed didn't cost us anything."

Conservative "humor" seems to consist largely of name-calling and really-stretching-it puns. When that becomes the primary content of The Onion, then the conservatives might have a chance.

/Also whatever it is that Dennis Miller does. Hyper-referential rapid-fire hate diatribes?
 
2012-02-07 11:39:04 AM
Republicans are inherently humorless.
 
2012-02-07 11:39:44 AM
Perhaps because the Onion has a targeted audience, and it's not you?
 
2012-02-07 11:39:47 AM
You see, those silly Obama critics will attack poor Barack on just about any charge. So we should simply ignore them, right?

Holy fark, conservatives can understand satire!

Are the comments from Onion staff writers?
 
2012-02-07 11:41:36 AM
Wow, complaining about The Onion making fun of whiny complaints about the norm and then making whiny complaints about the norm.

This article is pure meta.

Eh, it'll only be the Abortionplex for like 10 years, then they'll sell it and it'll become the Staples Center.

Doesn't that site know that Bush II took more vacations than any other US President ever?

/evar!
 
2012-02-07 11:42:41 AM
Well if there is a market for that, jump on it. Stop biatching and make some money.
 
2012-02-07 11:43:04 AM
Because, of course, the Onion leapt into being very recently and didn't hammer at anyone poking their head up in politics ala Whack-a-mole for the past couple decades. Welcome to the 90s, out of touch douchebags.

As of October 2009, An American Carol has grossed $7 million after having a production budget of $20 million.[23]

Zucker, in an interview with National Review Online, had suggested a sequel as his next possible project, but now says he is done making conservative comedies.
 
2012-02-07 11:43:45 AM
Because conservatives continue to forget to make a joke. That's why.

oh my god. my soul hurts from watching that. i don't even believe in a soul, and mine hurts from viewing that. did conservatives really think that was funny??? Are they aware that you can't just repeat your lame talking points in a sarcastic tone of voice and expect that to be a joke?

The Onion only makes fun of absurdity.

Stop being absurd, and they'll stop making fun of you.

I was reading the comments section below the article and found this gem.

"The Leftist wing of the American population is so desperate to keep their dream alive they just can't bring themselves to live up to their proudly stated principles if those principles lead them to criticize Obama, or whoever he is. Journalists practicing journalism would have to criticize Obama, or whoever he is, so these journalists abandon journalism. Comedians known for ridiculing the arrogantly powerful turn instead to ridiculing the earnest criticizers of arrogant power since the seat of that arrogant power is Obama, or whoever he is. The dream they are all trying so hard to keep alive is that of a collectivist utopia. Obama, or whoever he is, will be the one to lead us there if only we would love him enough."


I know I'm probably reading this incorrectly but it makes me happy to think that there's some contingent of people out there who thinks Obama is not Obama. When I read this it makes me think of an invasion of the body snatchers type scenario. Really, it's no crazier than the birther's beliefs.

Colbert made a comment (out of character) when asked about the show that comedy is all about making fun of the establishment and authority which goes against what 'conservatism' is all about. He would watch it if it was funny. But it wasn't. And it died a quick death.

Maybe if they whine enough, like with politifact, the onion will cave and start making fun of liberals for believing the earth is not 6000 years old.

I think Fox News would be more accurately classified as "Anti-Science Fiction"/
 
2012-02-07 11:48:03 AM
Ah, conservatives, the soul of the entitlement complex they claim everyone else has. "WHY AREN'T YOU DOING WHAT WE SAY YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT WE SAY WE OWN THE MEDIA". Whining farking maggots.

2012-02-07 11:48:42 AM
Because they look at the resounding success of "The Half Hour News hour" and realize that they could never, ever re-create such a feat so why try?
 
2012-02-07 11:49:18 AM
Oh, boo hoo. The Onion doesn't satirize the president as much as the not-RIGHT-in-attic crowd thinks they should. Maybe this is because right-wingers don't tend to recognize satire. Hell, some of the commenters to that blog post think The Onion is a legit, but left wing news site. You just have to ignore people that stupid.
 
2012-02-07 11:49:41 AM
Right wing comedy is always unintentional..and sad. Those fellas make me laugh and laugh.
