Given how bad GOP creations usually suck, it'll be interesting to see how they could possibly create something that sucks worse than Buzzfeed.

Everything the GOP tries is an attempt to copy something else.  And it always fails.

Unless they're not making rich people richer, they're completely lost.

This should be about as successful as their attempts to make right-slanted versions of The Daily Show, Wikipedia, Media Matters, etc. They only attract a small audience of those seeking their own echo chamber, while everyone else rolls their eyes and moves on.

Liberals are by nature innovators, the people who come up with new ideas. It's pretty much the definition of liberal.

Because if X isn't slanted to Conservatives, then it MUST be slanted to LIberals since there's no other option. Therefore it NEEDS a conservative version to balance the scales against the LIBERAL version.

This "snark" of theirs should be amusing, but not in the way they hoped, since it generally boils down to playground taunts.

It'd be nice if instead of being exclusionary dicks who must constantly build alternate realities to reinforce their worldview, conservatives just joined the rest of reality that everyone lives in. Although that would require treating the people who disagree with them as equals rather than inferiors.

Can we actually cite a successful conservative attempt at this sort of thing? Yes, their blogs are wildly popular among the chemtrail and Kenya crowd, but every attempt at humor, social media, their own wiki, etc, just seems laughable - and not in the good way. Even the political cartoons we're threadsh*tted with don't approach insightful humor, regardless of the reader's point of view.

I won't go so far as to say that liberals are necessarily smarter and funnier than conservatives (remember, not all conservatives are Palin-Americans), but it seems that every time Republicans try to be funny or 'modern' I cringe in embarrassment...for them.

I love how "taking our country back" has been more or less trademarked by the GOP. What about the rest of us? You don't think we want to take our country back from a ranting brigade of TeaPubliTarians who'd rather hold the country hostage than work in her interest?

And what, exactly, does "taking it back" mean? The 1950s? Sure, marginal tax rates were astronomical but at least b*tches and minorities knew their place? What is it you people want? Or is it just comforting to yell nebulous bullsh*t that passes for political philosophy?

Plantation economics, American Exceptionalism, Manifest Destiny and Small Government where businesses are concerned, unless the business needs a subsidy and protection to survive, or unless its anything to do with women, minorities or gays. Then its Big Daddy Government all the way, protect those poor put upon white rural landowners, just like my great grandaddy had. Fly the flags, glitter the eagles, let freedom ring.

skullkrusher: DarwiOdrade: skullkrusher: Doktor_Zhivago: whidbey: Remember, George W Bush was shunned by his own party. Yes, his neo-conservative leanings were actually too liberal for some. Amazing.

He wanted to give the messicans amnesty.  That's worse than abortion, gaybuttsex & benghazi x 10000

Except he was shunned because being associated with him is toxic, not because if any perception of liberalism.

At least one sucky blog disagrees with you.

Do you believe this blog or do you think the GOP just wants to disassociate from a wildly unpopular former President?


I believe the author of that blog believed what he wrote. Do I believe it? No, but I'm neither a fundamentalist Christian nor conservative.

Medicare pt. D, et al? Oh, you're right. No one cared about those things due to the "R" accompanying his name. Watch Obama try to urge something like that to be passed, and enjoy watching the politics tab explode.

Anyway, I agree with you. He's not shunned because of things like that; his name is like battery acid and will be for years to come.

Liberals are by nature innovators, the people who come up with new ideas. It's pretty much the definition of liberal.

Then why is every liberal
meme and joke driven into the ground via mindnumbing repetition by the overwhelming majority of liberals who don't meet your definition?

Because they're funny, insightful, and liberals are way better at innovating in getting their messages out?  Fear not, surely this copycat venture will finally get you guys up there.

I have zero interest in the GOP's attempts at media outreach. I do find this laughable belief that many liberals hold that they are by nature innovative and funny to be interesting though. You do have a funny definition of funny and insightful though, I'll give you that.

Conservatives, by the nature of conservatism, don't like things to change very much.  It doesn't take much effort to out-innovate them.

Nonsense - conservatives have come up with entirely novel methods of violating the Constitution, opposing SCOTUS rulings, rolling back rights. They've been on fire lately.

Damn, you got me there, I must admit.


Heh.

I actually misspose a bit in my original comment. I should've said that innovators are by nature liberal. They like new things, new ideas.

Conservatives by nature gravitate toward what's been working all along, regardless of whether it works or not.

Remember that video about McCain's tour bus? Some bland guy in a jacket and tie showed stuff on the bus, talking the in a way that Republicans would think the cool kids talked. We got gems like "it's got 42" rims, take THAT Hollywood! "

It's going to be a lot like that, young republican twits with a 6th grade level of cleverness putting up stuff that's beyond awful. Theyre trying very hard to be cool which automatically makes you extremely uncool.

Then the site's lack of popularity will be caused by a liberal conspiacy driven by fear of how awesome the site is and desperation to keep people away from the site.

On the other hand, if you're in your 29s and live in DC, you can probably get a job at the RNC if you go in and tell them how you use the social mediums and that Facebook is cool now that grandparents use it.

Yeah, but the primary reason for Bush Estrangement Syndrome isn't that he didn't toe the recently draconian party line. It's simply about his popularity (lack thereof). As noted above, no one was upset about Medicare D, the unfunded war, or overall spending. Had the economy not fallen to the sh*tter Bush would be an oft-employed speaker on the GOP circuit and bloggers would be lionizing him as the modern Reagan (at least the one that exists in their imaginations).

It's not hairsplitting, pumpkin. We both know what "the party shunned him because..." means and it isn't a generalization and some fringe whackos with a blog aren't who we're talking about, is it? It isn't to imply that every Republican dislikes him for one reason or another. In fact I'd bet most rank and filers think being associated with W is an honor worthy of promoting."The party" we're referring to here does not

Dear conservatives,

I think that modern sports writing is entirely too embedded within the liberal MSM mainstream media.  I think it's high time someone from within your ranks put together a blog where we can get unskewed sports news that isn't distorted by progressive ideologies influencing sportswriters.

I think you'll find that bleacherreport.com has a lot of good ideas, but if you were to take their format and add a dash of conservative context then we've got something that everyone will want to see.

Sincerely,
-UNC_Samurai

Liberals are by nature innovators, the people who come up with new ideas. It's pretty much the definition of liberal.

Can we actually cite a successful conservative attempt at this sort of thing? Yes, their blogs are wildly popular among the chemtrail and Kenya crowd, but every attempt at humor, social media, their own wiki, etc, just seems laughable - and not in the good way. Even the political cartoons we're threadsh*tted with don't approach insightful humor, regardless of the reader's point of view.

I won't go so far as to say that liberals are necessarily smarter and funnier than conservatives (remember, not all conservatives are Palin-Americans), but it seems that every time Republicans try to be funny or 'modern' I cringe in embarrassment...for them.


Let me put it this way.  P.J O'Rourke, especially the P.J. O'Rourke of recent years is the best - the absolute best that they've got

He wanted to give the messicans amnesty.  That's worse than abortion, gaybuttsex & benghazi x 10000

Except he was shunned because being associated with him is toxic, not because if any perception of liberalism.

At least one sucky blog disagrees with you.

Do you believe this blog or do you think the GOP just wants to disassociate from a wildly unpopular former President?


But why is he so wildly unpopular?

Wait, another attempt by the neocons running the GOP to remain relevant and continue their journey towards national socialism(as opposed to the dems pushing for Fabian socialism)?  This will quickly tank for no other reason than there's no one left in the GOP that buys into that belief structure that isn't a social security recipient.  And soon they will start taking dirt naps(much to the happiness of I think pretty much everybody).

For better or worse this is the future of the GOP:

Pre civil war, but not for the reason you're thinking.

I don't recall who wrote it, but there's a well-known historian who did a piece probably 50 years ago about how Americans, starting around the 1890s, began mythologizing their agrarian past.  Enough people had moved to cities by then that they didn't really know how tough life on the farm was, and so they started to look back on it as some golden age - simple, honest, fair, etc.

That's the root of the current GOP fondness for a simpler time.

CorporatePerson: wildcardjack: Is there any conservative humor that isn't just being mean to people?

King of the Hill? Not sure if Mike Judge is a conservative or not. He tends to be insightful and funny without being hateful so he's probably not. Still KOTH is hilarious and all the Texas conservatives are the good guys and all the liberals are annoying stereotypes.


the show's humor is kind of all over the place, but I get the impression that King of the Hill is a fairly conservative one, with the added bonus of being able to poke fun at itself. Though, FWIW, even if the show pokes fun at itself and Hank's often outdated/conservative views, I generally dislike it when the show takes on perceived Liberal traits as it's always traits that almost no Liberal would defend or some kind of straw-man on way outdated stereotypes. (I avoided The Goode Family for the same reason.)

Pretty much, though I really dislike South Park's attempts at satire/commentary; it's just not a subtle enough show to really work and I think generally distracts way too much from the actual humor. Sometimes it works, but generally the writing just comes off as making an overly elaborate way to make a point.

Yeah, I suppose so...that's been known to happen.  Still don't get it, though.

Then he showed what it's copying...the liberal picture of Reagan et al laughing about how trickle down economics screws us all.

How do YOU explain the "autopsy" of the GOP that says they don't need to change the message, they just need to change how they say it?

not how sunlion did.

Oh well thanks for your, uh, opinion, then. I guess.

why? Do I not laugh when appropriate? Do I not appreciate funny things? See, feigning amusement when you agree with someone's politics is not indicative of a sense of humor. Making the some boring jokes dozens and tens of dozens of people have made before is not amusing. For the sake of winning on the internet, you'll pretend it is.

Oh, great. Knowing them, they'll cobble together the worst parts of Imperial Rome and the Pharisees.

Don't forget the financial policies of pre-revolution France.

high taxes? Oh, wait, you meant something else.

Perhaps the concentration of wealth in a smaller and smaller ruling class?

OMFG!!1! CLASS WARFARE!!1!  F*CK YOU COMMIE!!!!

exactly what I was talking about earlier. When does the sarcastic whack job Republican imitation join it's rightful spot on the shelf next to airline food and leaving the toilet seat up jokes?

Um, when the imitation stops resembling actual Republicans?

despite the fact that it hasn't been amusing in quite literally years?

Perhaps to YOU, Thankfully, you aren't the Czar of Funny.

nah but I do have a rather well developed sense of humor. If you find these "OMG CUZ SOSHIALIZMS" posts amusing, it's pretty much a guarantee that you don't.


It IS funny because GOPpers are still un-ironically waving that flag.  Until they stop, as a prior poster mentioned, it's open season for mockery and ridicule.  That you don't find the humor just means you wish GOPpers would stop it (maybe, I don't really know) because they keep making their ideas and themselves targets.

I get it.  It's just a variation on a meme but I'll call this one "Stop making fun of things I like/believe!"

Okay, then.  The only time I see their tired shiat is if someone quotes them.  Asking someone to judge is someone is being sincere in their Fark posts is pretty subjective don't you think?  I could say "yes, I think the mouthbreathers that pop in and post their bullshiat are sincere" and you could say "no, they're not."  At the end of the day, they are representing the views of GOPpers to whomever is looking.  If you think they are hurting "your team" to the point you have to whine about the jokes, maybe you should do more to muzzle them.  Otherwise, let them pound it loud and proud and let the snark fall where it may.   And limiting to Fark is a bit disingenuous, isn't it?  I mean, GOPpers are ALL over the place spouting shiat like this ALL THE TIME.  Let me guess....it's not acceptable to use experiences outside of Fark (where the resident GOPpers may have become SLIGHTLY less vocal) to make fun of GOPpers?

I know, it sucks always losing the humor battle.  But, GOPpers are so much better than librulz in every other way, so surely you can let that one slide.

The link to Living Under ObamaCare is just precious.

Their centerpiece is a whine about how costs will go up because more people will be getting healthcare...

"I got a mammogram for free even though I could have easily made my co-payment. I didn't feel right at all because I can afford it, whereas that money could have been used for someone else who can't."

But I still took the free mammogram . . .

And that bit of concern is also coming from the same people that hold up signs like this:

Fart_Machine: skullkrusher: Fart_Machine: skullkrusher: sugardave: skullkrusher: sugardave: It IS funny because GOPpers are still un-ironically waving that flag. Until they stop, as a prior poster mentioned, it's open season for mockery and ridicule. That you don't find the humor just means you wish GOPpers would stop it (maybe, I don't really know) because they keep making their ideas and themselves targets.

do you ever see anyone around here making such comments? Honestly, who do you speak with any frequency on these boards speak that way sincerely?

The "jokes" may be relevant if people are still saying that sort of thing but they aren't funny and that's what the conversation is about. The innovative and creative spirits inherent in liberals. Now THAT is funny.

/not really

Are you seriously asking me if there are thread posters on Fark that decry Obama's policies as Socialism, he engages in class warfare, and that he is out to destroy America?  Really?

yes. I am honestly asking that. Who does so sincerely? If you are gonna say you dudes make the same tired jokes because of what a bunch of cheese or randomj say...

They can't all be trolls or troll alts can they?

I can't think of any who aren't, can you?

Hard to say anymore. I get some pretty batshait crazy stuff from Facebook and they're being sincere. So those people do exist.


they do exist. My dad is one. On Fark they are exceedingly rare.

seriously man, you aren't doing yourself any favors here. In fact, when posting you hardly ever do. Perhaps this will help:

Can you think of something that is amusing that is not funny? Can you be amused and not be laughing at the same time?
Did you ever find yourself sitting on the couch tossing a tennis ball against the wall, amusing yourself for a few minutes? Are you able to do this without laughing? If so, stop making an ass of yourself, there's your answer. If not, get help because tossing a tennis ball isn't farking funny and you're probably nuts if it causes you to laugh

why does it have to "require" it for it to be possible to be amused but not to find something funny? Answer: it doesn't. The reason du jour why you decide you want to fark around with someone, you should fark around with someone more on your... umm... level. Try 10 lbs

nope. They don't mean the same thing. The sets of amusing and funny things are not identical. Something CAN be both amusing and funny, funny and amusing however, something does not have to be funny to be amusing. Again, tennis balls against the wall.

Liberals on Fark DO beat jokes into the ground. The fact that Sarah Palin does as well does not change that and frankly has nothing whatsoever to do with it. Hell, if Sarah Palin had a Fark handle and beat jokes into the ground it would STILL have nothing to do with whether Fark liberals do. The fact that you find that to be a defense is pretty perplexing especially when she is roundly considered to be an idiot. In summary, A) the fact that she does has nothing to do with whether Fark libs do and B) you just just tried a both sides are unfunny using Sarah Palin as an example.

I have the feeling that is made up and/or trolling.   Some one is throwing shiat on the wall to see if the right wingers question it or just instinctively yell DAMN YOU FARTBAMA.

Noticed this in real life; when groups of Real American Conservatives talk politics, it's just random biatching and making up of things like they were talking about fishing stories.  I think the idea is to just say stupidier and stupidier shiat until they can "out the liberal who defends Obama."  That or they're just bullshiat artists who like to talk.

sugardave: Okay, then.  The only time I see their tired shiat is if someone quotes them.  Asking someone to judge is someone is being sincere in their Fark posts is pretty subjective don't you think?  I could say "yes, I think the mouthbreathers that pop in and post their bullshiat are sincere" and you could say "no, they're not."  At the end of the day, they are representing the views of GOPpers to whomever is looking.  If you think they are hurting "your team" to the point you have to whine about the jokes, maybe you should do more to muzzle them.  Otherwise, let them pound it loud and proud and let the snark fall where it may.   And limiting to Fark is a bit disingenuous, isn't it?  I mean, GOPpers are ALL over the place spouting shiat like this ALL THE TIME.  Let me guess....it's not acceptable to use experiences outside of Fark (where the resident GOPpers may have become SLIGHTLY less vocal) to make fun of GOPpers?

I know, it sucks always losing the humor battle.  But, GOPpers are so much better than librulz in every other way, so surely you can let that one slide.



You've got to be kidding me. I've been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Stile4aly: Comedy requires self awareness, which is why the majority of conservative humor is awful.


That and the fact that, while Liberal comedians may work their views into their bit, Conservative comedians make it THE FOCUS of their bit.

/and the punchline is always "BECAUSE LIBERALS!" and "LIBERALS, THAT'S WHO!!"

cameroncrazy1984: Phins: For some reason, I also clicked on the "living under Obamacare link so I had the pleasure of seeing this:

"The ObamaCare requirement affects my daughter who is 23 and just got her 2nd Master's degree. Tricare young adults charges more than she can make as a babysitter and nanny-the only work she can find in this small city. Now she will be fined under ObamaCare."

WTF? Your daughter has two masters degrees, she's a babysitter and your concern is Obamacare?!?!?!?!?! She got two masters degrees to do the job of a 13 year-old girl?

Holy sh*t what is that girl doing with her life?


Me thinks it's bullshiat.  Most people don't get a bs in 4 years anymore.  For many majors it take 4.5-5 years standard.  Somehow this person wants us to believe her daughter was able to get 2 masters by age 23, yet isn't able to find a job that pays her enough to afford health insurance?  Bullshiat.

Of course, she may have done a bs in studio arts, and her masters might be in liberal arts and fine arts, but that reminds me of the lines I've been hearing from teabagger relatives that want to "round up" or even "nuke" OWS camps, with the justification that these stupid people wasted their time/money on worthless degrees and now they want us to pay for their mistakes.... or some other similar, but equally disgusting and vile talking point that Rush trotted out for them to repeat ad nauseum.

Of course, there's also the possibility that she got two masters degrees from a place that isn't accredited and therefore none of it means jack other than "I get fooled into wasting resources that are available to me and are at my discretion to use wisely," which doesn't sit well with most would-be employers.

That's why we make fun of Obama. It's not hatred. It's not racism. He just ain't one of us. He doesn't love America like you and I do, ya know?

They're synonyms. That's the point. They mean the same thing. They're not degrees of anything.

good Lord. Context, cam. Context. Developed sense of what is funny. He is referring to comedy. He is referring to a specific aspect of the definition which d... jeez, nevermind


Christ, watching you two go at it on Sunday nights is like watching two old widowers at the rest home argue about whether to watch Lawrence Welk or Championship Bowling, after one too many margaritas on the lanai porch. Give it a rest already.

"TriCare Young Adults" is health insurance for adult children of military members.  The most expensive plan is $200 a month, and there's cheaper options.

Besides, isn't one of the features of Obamacare that children can remain covered on their parents' insurance until they reach the age of 26? Miss "I Have Two Masters Degrees" should know that 23 is less than 26. Or that her mother is a liar.

make me some tea: This should be about as successful as their attempts to make right-slanted versions of The Daily Show, Wikipedia, Media Matters, etc. They only attract a small audience of those seeking their own echo chamber, while everyone else rolls their eyes and moves on.

Liberals are by nature innovators, the people who come up with new ideas. It's pretty much the definition of liberal.


Yep, this is just another room addition to the "echo chamber".

But for entertainment purposes let's just imagine that it is as successful as the GOP hopes in attracting new page visitors and getting their message out to new audiences. Will that have the results they hope for? Or will it just cause their message to be further rejected by an even larger audience? They aren't changing the policies that were soundly rejected by the American people during the last POTUS election; just the packaging.

Liberals are by nature innovators, the people who come up with new ideas. It's pretty much the definition of liberal.

Liberals are also the better comedians. Liberals understand that the purpose of humor is to make you laugh and feel good; to draw out emotions of happiness which are positive emotions. Any negative connotations towards political figures is just a bye-product of the ridiculing of the actions of the political figure themselves, and not a direct personal attack. Conservatives do not understand this. The purpose of their attempts at "humor" is to get you to dislike someone and incite a small bit of rage towards that person; basically negative emotions. The "punch lines" rely on personal animosity towards the subject of the joke, and if this animosity is not held by the "audience" then the joke falls flat. If you do share the animosity; rather than making you happy and relieving stress the conservative "humor" leaves you angry and pissed off. While it seems to work well for the "base", it is not a very good way to attract new people to your cause. All it does is make the GOP look grumpy, petty, and bitter to people who do not enjoy being pissed off all the time.

Even if she did get her bachelors in four years, it is still bullshiat. No respectable school is going to allow somebody to go straight into a masters program right after graduation without previous work experience, let alone do TWO graduate programs at the same time.  If she really does have two masters then those degrees are worth less than the paper they are printed on.

Depends on the field, no?

Business schools typically don't want to take MBA students unless they have a few years of real-world experience, but in a lot of STEM programs it's not unusual to go directly from undergraduate to graduate -- or even have overlap between the two, such as a 5-year program that earns the student both a BS and an MS in a given subject.

I don't agree with that.  I know several people that are either in a graduate or professional program at UW-Madison, or who have already completed one of those programs, that went straight from undergrad with no real world experience besides an internship under their belt.  I also have worked with people that went straight into grad school at MSOE, and UI-Champaign-Urbana.

I don't agree with the practice one bit, but there are respected schools that do this on a regular basis.  All three of those are top tier engineering schools.  There aren't a lot of things more frustrating than someone who can model the magnetic fields and thermal characteristics of a 100MVA oil-filled transformer using some esoteric software, but somehow don't know how to get a thermocouple in the damn thing to check that they're model is accurate, or how to operate a thermal imager (little more than a camera that sees heat) to see if the hot spots on the chassis line up with their model.

Refusing to move out of Podunk, BFE. Two master's degrees would have gotten me a job sorting cow dung by odor and consistency in the town where I grew up. Turns out, having a specialized education only helps get a job if there are employers that need the thing you specialized in.

Seriously.  Also if she is making that little money, wouldn't she qualify for Medicade or the tax credits that reimburses her for her insurance premiums?
