Uranus Is Huge!: Dennis Miller, Nick Dipaolo, and Glenn Beck are the only "funny" conservatives.

And that is sad.

I don't know who Nick Dipaolo is but Miller and Beck are not funny comedians, or at least not intentionally.

Liberal's hearts are in the right place, they just forgot how to do the math.

Is that like the "cutting taxes raises revenue" kinda math?

Pincy: I don't know who Nick Dipaolo is but Miller and Beck are not funny comedians, or at least not intentionally.

Dipaolo was a regular on Comedy Central's old pre-Colbert 11:30 show, "Colin Quinn and His Equally Unfunny Friends Piss and Moan About Not Finding Work." I'm sure he's a guest on some wacky morning zoo at some radio station in the small Midwest town he's playing tonight. What I'm saying is, you're not missing anything.

And, while we're on it, aren't most conservative entertainers who speak up merely has-beens who are simultaneously trying to drum up publicity for themselves one last time while attempting to stick it to the industry that they feel has left them behind?

It's a conservative value system thing. They value 3 things that liberals do not: sanctity, authority, and loyalty. In doing so, they do things that are absurdly funny, and are themselves incapable of satire, because they don't understand how mocking sacred cows, authority figures, or blind loyalty could be funny.
