The Why Not Guy: machoprogrammer: Fark Democrat Brigade takes themselves and their political party way too seriously sometimes. Make a joke about a Democrat? OH MY GOD NOT FUNNY CONSERVATIVE HUMOR! But Jon Stewart making a stupid face and stating the obvious after showing a clip of a Republican doing something retarded (which isn't rare) is somehow hilarious?

Do you remember when David Letterman got his Palins mixed up and made a joke about one of the not-Bristol daughters getting knocked up at a Yankee game? Do you remember the Republicans taking to the streets and picketing the theater where Letterman's show is taped? Now tell us all again how it's Democrats who can't take a joke.


Yeah, a joke about A-Rod farking a 14 year old daughter of the VP nominee is pretty shiatty. So would you be ok with a joke about A-Rod or Jeter farking one of Obama's daughters? Is that really the best you can come up with?

So Republicans have no sense of humor not because they found the joke in poor taste, but because they picketed over it? So if they just found it in poor taste but didn't picket over it, that would be different?

And I guarantee you that people would protest the crap out of that. If people protested the CEO of Chic-Fil-A supporting anti-gay marriage causes (and I support gay marriage, btw), they would protest that.

Hey - maybe they aren't protesting - maybe they are just trying to call attention to this esteemed gentleman's wise words. After all - since he said absolutely nothing that was even slightly wrong, bad, racist, mean, or untoward in any way, he should be proud of the public scrutiny his remarks are receiving, and welcome it!

He never thought it acceptable.  He admitted it was a bad snark and never actually said this to the kids.  Probably a poor choice of words to say he wanted to but hey, there you are.


But he thought it was acceptable to say it in front of a group of Republicans, knowing that they're just a bunch of racists like him. The fact that they had a good laugh about it proves that.

skullkrusher: The Why Not Guy: skullkrusher: that's the best example you could find? The one where Letterman joked about Palin's 14 year old daughter farking Alex Rodriguez?


Well the joke was about Bristol Palin, who was 18 years old when he made the joke and she was certainly able to consent to having sex with A-Rod and probably would have sex with him if given the chance.

Most late night comedian's jokes are bad.  Letterman's joke wasn't funny, but so what, 99% of what Jay Leno and Letterman say isn't funny.

/And you've proven time and time again you don't mind altering the truth to fit your narrative, so I really don't know why I bothered presenting it to you.

AnonAmbientLight: skullkrusher: Benevolent Misanthrope: Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, who offered his endorsement last month, called Hill "exactly the kind of person Colorado and this country needs in the US Senate."

Just making sure this gets out there, since it required Ring TFA.

This - THIS, Republicans - is who your party is nominating and saying is exactly the ind of person who needs to be in power.  And so, I'd just like to ask: HOW THE EVERLOVING FARK CAN YOU BE A MEMBER OF THAT PARTY??

/Stay classy, GOP

I don't know anything about his background but a shiatty sense of humor doesn't disqualify someone from office. I mean, with all the things that members of the GOP do to make them bad candidates, relating a story about not telling an unfunny joke really isn't the camel breaker

"Well, you know what, we already have someone from Kenya as President of the United States.'"

It's that subtle hint of racism. It's like when Palin was touring America and calling out all the "Real Americans" to help get out and vote for the GOP. Get it? Real Americans? *hint hint, wink wink* she's talking about specific people here, and claiming the rest are unfit to even be called Americans. But she didn't outright say it.

It's extremely transparent, but she didn't technically say it. Sure does fire up the base though. This is why a lot of posters claim that some people are being racist when they say Obama isn't from the US, etc.


The problem is that even if the joke had a chance at being funny, his delivery sucked.

Quicker punchline like "sorry kid, we already have a kenyan president" would have been better.  Some people can have a great joke and ruin it because they ruin the timing and punchline.

<CSB>

Reminds me of the time we were making a video spoofing our attendings (professors, essentially) from residency.  The sketch was about their behaviors at work continuing during a wine and cheese party outside of work.  One guy, who is supposedly the chief of anesthesia at the VA hasn't worked with a resident in years, and in four years of residency, I personally had never seen him.  So one of the sketches I wrote was about him knocking on the door, having a resident open and ask "do I know you?"  Pretty straight forward.

When we start the sketch, one of our friends playing the resident answers the door, makes an overly dramatic confused face, and then asks a very animated DO i KNOW YOU ???? at him.  It was awful.  Like a GOP joke.

One of our friends had the idea to have the resident opening the door have a wine glass and a piece of cheese in his hand.  The resident would open the door, take a look at the visitor, pop a piece of cheese in his mouth, chew it for a while maybe trying to figure out who the guest is (but this time flatly, without making a face), swallow it, and then with wine in hand subtly point and ask "do I know you?".  The scene turned out to be hilarious, and the timing made all the difference (the wait with him chewing the cheese made some giggle in anticipation of the punchline, even).

The idea was brilliant, and it got a huge laugh.  Taught me that delivery is really 90% of the joke, since the script was exactly the same.

</CSB>

well, actually, he made a joke about being at the Yankees game. The 14 year old was at the Yankees game. Not Bristol. Otherwise, you'd be totally right in a completely wrong sort of way.

Perhaps he was mistaken as he said. Whatever. Still a piss poor example of people reacting badly to a joke.

Well, in his defense, doing those things certainly WOULD lower healthcare costs. I just wonder why nobody ever thought of curing these diseases before?

Not necessarily. It's often cheaper to bury someone than to treat their disease.


Treat, yes. Cure, not so much. I wonder how much we would be spending to "treat" polio, smallpox, etc. if we hadn't all but eliminated those diseases? Probably a hell of a lot more than we spend on vaccinations.

You might have a point here if it wasn't the three billionth time someone made a "lol Obama's from Kenya" remark.

A similar thread was made last election season when Rmoney made a similar joke. It was obvious he was joking, but everyone here was up in arms calling him a birthing retard. Then again, considering the amount of Democrat dick that gets sucked on this tab on a daily basis, it should be expected...


Since it's apparent the majority of republican cock gets sucked at rest-stops, Havana, and any city hosting the republican national convention, it kinda balances itself out.
