Fresh and original is not always good. This post is a fine example

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.

there is quite literally no depth of stupid you won't embrace, is there?


Apparently not!

sugardave: 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.

Not sure of his politics, but I'd bet more liberal than conservative.

CSB: I met Mike Judge at the opening of the Beavis and Butthead movie.

I don't care much for his politics, but that General Tso makes a damn fine chicken dinner.

dickfreckle: 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.

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.

REAL conservatives are.  Watch out, RINO.

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'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. It's just common sense

Why is it that, every time conservatives find themselves in any kind of predicament, their immediate solution is always to just double down and become even more extreme? If they were in charge of rehab for alcoholics, their solution would be to drink even more.

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 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.

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?

Thanks a lot  #0bama

The 0bama thing is done by one person around here and no one pretends it is funny.

It's funny, but not in the traditional sense of the word funny. More like watching a child poop their pants in a temper tantrum funny.

The butthurt in that phrase alone says so much.

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?
