BOB SCHIEFFER: What exactly are you accusing the President of here, Governor?

GOVERNOR RICK PERRY: I don't know.

I would typically accuse Conservative voters of being even dumber than Conservative politicians but I think Perry might be the exception.

...
heinrich66: That's because it's not high comedy. It's sophomoric.

So why do keep watching it?

He doesn't. He's just pretending he does. That's how this stuff works. It's like being a Fark Independent™.


Ah yes, THAT old chestnut. This is why conservative comedy is so bad.

It's not that we make fun of what they think, it's that we make fun of what we THINK they think.

peasandcarrots: If you feed "Nixon You Dolt" into Google, that thread pops up. I once did that to find the source of the meme. Haven't read the whole thread, but it does kind of speak truth to the Palin-Republican mentality.

It's an interesting thing to look at, because there are two possibilities behind it. One is that the poster is full of lard. The other is that the poster listened to the words of the Authority he admired, and those words actually temporarily erased the memory of Nixon's resignation from his mind.

I read that "You are not so smart" book about how memories are formed and recalled, This is an "authority" thing. The poster obviously admires Michael Savage, or at least the side that he purports to be on, enough so that when Savage, as an authority, makes a statement like that, the poster's mind stifles the recall of the fact that the statement was false. Combine that with tribalism - "my side is never wrong ever" - and there's his insane attempt to walk it back. "Well, he didn't really resign, he was hounded out of office."

GaryPDX wasn't stupid, but what he did in that thread was prove that he had, essentially, reached a point where he was letting other people do all his thinking for him. He was no longer processing simple information on his own. Don't you kind of wish you had that power over someone? That you could just say any stupid thing and have it be believed? The Republican have that power over a wide swath of the country, and they will exercise it.

"Yes, master...no President ever resigned...Obama is a socialist foreign invader...Paul Revere's ride was to warn the British...Michelle Obama said 'All this for a damn flag...' the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the government...vote Republican...I obey..."

For relevance's sake, you also have Rick Perry above, stating one of the golden truths of modern conservatism: "I don't know why I'm mad, but boy am I mad. This is an outrage, for some reason I haven't adequately figured out yet."

In the movie version of "Game Change," Rick Davis pointed out that they couldn't even mention Obama's name without the crowd getting all whipped up. Conservatives learned a long time ago that people surrender their critical thinking when they're riled up - we all give in to emotion first, before the intellect kicks in and brings us back to Earth, so conservatives have decided that the way to keep and maintain power was to get people angry and keep them angry, for as long as possible, for as many different reasons as possible, and against the wrong people.


Gary was (is) a pathetic attention whore who intentionally says whatever stupid thing he can so people respond to him. He was a fake, an act, deliberately saying whatever dumb shiat, lies and misinformation to get everyone in the thread talking about him.

He wasn't stupid; he was pitiful.

True, Nixon would be seen as far too liberal for Republicans these days.


And has more integrity than the GOP crowd today.

The Lone Gunman: This is why conservative comedy is so bad.


i've always kinda seen it as the difference between comedy about politics....and politics about comedy.

Codenamechaz: In terms of cable news, The Daily Show has been the most reliable source. In regular news, most of the newspapers, local and national, are up on their game, and only the bigger, "Gate"-worthy stuff of those investigative pieces get grabbed by the news networks.


yah, probably should have prefaced with 'on tv' - there is still some print journalism, but...even that, the number of desks/reporters dedicated to print journalism isn't what it once was, either.

birchman: Since when are comedians required to give equal time? Did I miss the memo?


Yes, somewhere in this whole discussion, it's lost on Republicans that maybe the market should decide who the voices are. Or did I just imagine that as being their central tenet (for everything but religion, sexuality and media bias)?

incendi: heinrich66: It's better than anything else on TV. That doesn't mean it's not shiat.

You could, you know... go to bed?

heinrich66: Good one. Develop some standards. Learn about real comedy. Comedy is supposed to be about taking risks. It's supposed to be about telling people what they don't want to hear. Not reaffirming their prejudices.

You've got a strange and narrow definition of comedy.


No kidding. My favorite line is " It's supposed to be about telling people what they don't want to hear."

Next time you go to an open mic, let me know. I'd REALLY like to see how this philosophy works out.

Comedy is about taking the same world that everyone else is privy to, and looking at it from a different angle. It's about introducing a broader audience to your perceptions of the world around you.

I wrote a sketch called 'GOP Debate: The Musical'. Newt Gingrich sang 'Rock Me Amadeus' except with the words Ronald Reagan over and over. Santorum sang 'Maria' but it was about Googling his own name. Romney sang a parody of 'It Wasnt Me' about previous statements he'd made. And Ron Paul didn't sing anything because music isn't mentioned in the Constitution.

The idea that comedy is getting up there and saying things that people don't want to hear is ridiculous.

No shiat, what with his universal healthcare ideas and creating the EPA and all that hippie, liberal, socialism nonsense.

If Nixon were around today, he'd be wondering who the hell let this black ultra-conservative president into the White House.

Seriously, you need to stop this.


"Red-Eye w/Greg Gutfeld" lasted a lot longer and was closer to being the conservative "answer" to the Daily Show. The problem is it just wasn't nearly as funny or clever.

I've found attempts at conservative political humor tend to be more along the lines of making fun of obvious misstatements and broadly mocking a person's personality tics. Which frankly holds very little lasting appeal.

The odd thing is, despite Daily Show's liberal slant, they actually pull off making fun of liberals much better than any conservative outlet does. Better writers I suppose...

As opposed to a certain avid viewer of the Daily Show who does the opposite.

"I reject everyone's political views. That means I'm superior. I also care about things that most people don't know about - like my girlfriend in Canada (you wouldn't know her)."

He even used "slave" rather than "sheeple." THAT is how independent he truly is.

JerkStore: If Nixon were around today, he'd be wondering who the hell let this black ultra-conservative president into the White House.

He might also point out that, just like the coyote who gets his ass handed to him again and again by that roadrunner, his lifetime enemies (the well-connected establishment types who were born on third base) handed his ass to him even when he was president. They had their friends Deep Throat and Woodward and Butterfield bring Nixon down, because, well, he wasn't one of them, and they never did like him, even though he worked his way into their clubhouse (and saved their WASP bacon with the Southern strategy).

Ok...maybe this is just MY definition, but I thought comedy is supposed to be about making people laugh.

Not to mention he'd be a high outlier as far as basic competence in office is concerned.

//In all seriousness, Nixon was corrupt as hell but actually pretty good at the job. Which, lets be honest, is a combination a lot of us appreciate a lot more after how the much more morally upstanding and less corruptible administration from 2000-2008 worked out.

If both sides were equally deserving of ridicule, sure. They're not, so no, I don't think TDS should exhibit a false sense of balance.

This, of course, is where you're wrong. Both sides are equally deserving of ridicule. They both offer equally limited and self-contradictory worldviews to certain demographic groups. Naturally since you've chosen one side over the other you wouldn't see that.

Fox News has spoiled conservatives. They now expect everything to be fair and balanced, which means Republicans are given a free pass for everything they do and liberals are to be demonized at every turn.

Now whenever they're insulted, they whine because that's not "balanced." Stewart mocking them isn't "balanced." Hell my right wing cousin got all butthurt when the Eye of the Tiger guy asked Gingrich to stop using his song.

"He's only doing this for political reasons!"

Yes of course it's political. This is entertainment. Outside of your little media bubble, nobody is required to take your derp seriously, and are free to mock your political ambitions.

this isn't Watergate because the President has said he knew nothing about it, and his executive privilege is to cover his involvement, which he had none, so this isn't Watergate.

If we can't trust the President when he says this isn't a coverup, who can we trust?

Plus TDS doesn't a political agenda the way 'The 1/2 Hour News Hour' clearly did. As Stewart said when he was on Chris Wallace's show, "I never said I was 'only' a comedian, I said I was a comedian FIRST."

heinrich66: Good one. Develop some standards. Learn about real comedy. Comedy is supposed to be about taking risks. It's supposed to be about telling people what they don't want to hear. Not reaffirming their prejudices. TDS is an exercise in affirming the prejudices of a left-leaning hipster-type crowd.


That's not what comedy is at all.

Comedy is iconoclastic. It goes after whatever is most sacred/taboo/personal/sacreligious, etc... It is all about exposing tropes and tearing down idolotry. Furthermore, there must be an element of truth to comedy. That's what makes it funny. Otherwise it's just confusing and makes no sense. Comedy must reveal truths, not reinforce pre-conceived narratives, and that's something I think Conservatives can never quite grasp.

But while comedy has be truthful, it doesn't have to be accurate. Authenticity is more important than accuracy. For example, look at Chris Rock's comedy which always has a political edge to it. Some of his analogies are loaded to the hilt, but that's okay because the point behind his jokes is not the politics, it's the jokes.

For instance, take his joke about gun control: "I don't think we need gun control, I think we need bullet control. I think all bullets should cost $5000." And then he launches into a hilarious skit about how absurd it would be to shoot somebody and then ask for your bullet back. See, that's funny, but the point is not the political debate over gun control, the point is the funny.

Conservatives don't seem to get this. They don't get satire, they don't get surrealism, they don't get absurdity or parody or sarcasm which are all important weapons in comedy. As soon as you try to hamfist some sort of message into your comedy, it stops becoming an end in itself and starts becoming a means, and then it loses the humor because people did not come to be preached to. They came to laugh.

And this is why comedy should never be seen as "liberal" or "conservative" in the first place. True, pure comedy is politically indivisible, delivered for its own sake, and utterly nihilistic and iconoclastic. If the audience accepts those things, then it becomes very enjoyable no matter the audience's political affiliation.

Conservatives will never accept the "iconoclastic" part because they often think of life as having moral absolutes and that some things should never be made fun of. And that is why they are not funny.

But that doesn't mean conservative humor cannot exist. Just look at South Park: Trey and Matt have done a masterful job of being equal opportunity offenders (making fun of everything from NASCAR and Jersey Shore to World of Warcraft, metrosexuals, Oprah and the NRA). Yet conservatives think its a conservative show, evidently using a careful filter whenever it attacks right-wing issues. Team America, after all, was not just a satire of liberal Hollywood elites.

But despite its total and complete nihilism and its bevy of leftwing targets, South Park is one of the most popular shows among liberals. The reason for this is because liberals don't hold their issues to be above criticism, condemnation, or parody. They can laugh at themselves.

I'm going to reassert this point: Comedy is iconoclastic. If you are too uptight or you hold anything sacred, you are not going to find jokes about the subject matter funny, no matter how clever they are.

This is the problem with Conservative comedians. They see comedy as a means to an end -- to push a political slant. That's where the jokes fail. The purpose of comedy is not politics. The purpose of comedy is comedy.

Gee, it's almost like somebody composed a script and passed it around to all the paid voices.

You know, on this tangent I'm actually jealous of the current Republican Party. They are so on key, they are so on message. The story they tell is constant bullshiat, but they control it so well. But they've spent a majority of their resources on communication and zilch on actual governing. Meanwhile the Democratic Party seems to be off in lala land doing jack shiat about anything, nevermind a comprehensive message. The only folks who have their shiat together made The Usual Suspects their Ultra Bible, and everyone else is dicking around like Dumb and Dumber. Come on, DemonicRats! You guys can do better. Stop giving the Republicans what they want!

The especially surprising thing is how eager the Republicans seem to be with throwing Nixon under the bus just to make the current President look bad. That makes me very uncomfortable, and I'm saying that as somebody who thinks Nixon was an incorrigible asshole who would do anything to win. I'd sooner vote for Nixon than I would any modern Republican.

Know how I know you don't watch the Daily Show?

Know how I know you're a sucker?

I've watched The Daily Show for years. Nothing could be more obvious than that's it's basically intended for a 30-40 year old quasi-hipster audience.

But more to the point: it has a left-leaning ideological view (urbanite, tolerant) that skewers Republicans easily -- and justifiably -- but when it skewers Democrats there's always a feeling that it's doing something "bold". And when it skewers them it's for being hypocritical and not, say, because left-leaning principles are themselves bullshiat.

Go cry somewhere else. Do you want some sort of affirmative action program to compensate for the fact that conservatives tend to be humorless drones? You don't like TDS because it efficiently and hilariously showcases political BS and most of that BS is stinking up your side of the ideological aisle. If the Left is so chock-full of its own bull flavored shiat it should be easy to mock, so get your own shows and stop biatching.

Listen up, slave. Here's the skinny: I'm not a Republican. I'm also not a Democrat. I don't buy into worthless worldviews. I don't believe that as an individual I am entitled to rape and pillage and screw everybody else (Republican). I also don't believe that I have an identity only insofar as I belong to a some category within identity politics (African American, LGBT, Inuit) and that social progress is and can only be the progress of groups, not individuals.

If anything I am entirely opposed to an imperialism that most Americans don't even know exists, that results in countless deaths and terrible injustice on a global scale -- and is far worse than some "Republican" hypocrisy when it comes to INSERT SOCIAL ISSUE HERE.

The Daily Show routinely avoids the hard issues, takes ...


... Are you are talking about Comedy or Journalism? You seem to be confusing the two.

Seriously, you are not independent of worldviews. I'm sorry but everyone HAS a worldview and you just stated yours in your previous comments. Your criticizing people for banding together when they cannot be heard as a individual, really? Individualism has its limits like any other ideology! Don't be so smug. You are not the first to ever think of yourself as so unique and such an independent thinker. Its like those idiots you declare themselves a rebel and wear all black or get a bunch of tattoos. Then they start hanging out with people who do and say the exact same shiat.

As for Identity, many people don't simply Identity themselves as belonging to a single political group. When asked about identity most people state their regional ties, ethnicity, or occupation and only sometimes a political affiliation.

First off, you say you watch the Daily Show, think its shiat, but also think its better than anything else on... really? Damnit, I won't go any further because most of what's on now is practically reality TV.

Is TDS supposed to be hard hitting journalism? There are many different styles of comedy... are you saying everyone has to be a George Carlin? Wouldn't that end up being boring as fark, hearing everyone say the same shiat about what "they"(the establishment) wants you to do or believe?

Like it or not, you have a set of beliefs that guide you, a worldview, or ideology. Or whatever the fark you want to call it. You cannot deny it.
