balki1867: The problem with conservative humor is that instead of focusing on making conservatives laugh the way liberals laugh at their humor, they focus on trying to make liberals feel the way conservatives feel about liberal humor.  So it ends up awkward and generally terrible.


Or maybe it's that true humor makes one feel personally uncomfortable in some way.  "Conservative humor" merely elicits bemusement.

This is the only interview of D'Souza that you will ever need to watch.

I doubt I'll be watching this, but I'm surprised the Evil Republican Brigade isn't in here telling us all how hilarious it is.

Of all the pictures of Putin he could have used, why one with him shirtless, riding a horse? Is there even one heterosexual Republican male left in America, or have they all gone gay for Putin? Seems like damn near every conservative male in this country jerks off to leathermanesque fantasies of Putin making them all his little ponies.

They all suffered massive strokes trying to convince themselves that it was actually funny.

Is there a word for when someone is such an embarrassing asshole that they can't even realize it so you just have to feel like an asshole for them? Because that's what I'm feeling right now.

Conservative humor usually involves having the punchline being beaten into the back of your skull. Nuance isn't strong with them.

Is porn still a viable business? A gay porn with a Putin Look-alike could be pedaled to the Republican boys club. Make some money selling it. Make more money threatening to tell.

As far as I can tell, he aspires to be the Al Sharpton of the Right.

Scream and scary movie? I can barely remember which one had Doofy. I always want to say scary movie because how the fark could a real movie have that? But isn't it scream?

[chuckyg.com image 580x852]

Of course that sort of assumes that those 60s spy films were spoofs of earlier, Cold War movies.


So the answer is "no", then?

To be fair, it must have took a lot of restraint for Dinesh to keep from screaming "OBAMA IS A POOPYHEAD!" over and over again.
 
2014-03-29 05:23:58 AM  
When I want a good laugh from Dinesh D'Souza, I'll watch those debate videos with Hitch tearing him a new one.

Cruz? Jindal? Nugent?

Can't Conservatives offer up one real American?


I wonder if these guys sit around and say things like, I don't understand why we can't attract minorities--just look at us--we are minorities and we LOVE the Republican Party.
 
2014-03-29 07:41:22 AM  
Just as bad as I expect? That was even worse than I expected. Parody is hard enough for real comedians. Consider how many terrible ____ Movie clones there are for every one Top Secret! or Airplane. But trying to parody a parody, and by a partisan political hack no less. Absolutely terrible.

Wasn't Dinesh D'Souza indicted on Federal money laundering or illegal campaign contributions or something?

What kind of name is Dinesh D'Souza?  It sounds foreign.
 
2014-03-29 09:04:46 AM  
He's rather camp.
 
2014-03-29 09:44:14 AM  
Well...at least they are consistent.  They use the logic of an eight year old to determine policies.

Ah yes. Dinesh dsouza. The man who made the original comment about the 9/11 terrorists not being cowards on bill Maher's show. Dsouza is a right wing darling, and Maher lost his show.Interesting.If you can find it, about a year ago Maher had him back on his new show and basically humiliated him.

Shrewd observation.  Like most conservative behavior, the goal is not to reward oneself, but to punish others.

I really hope that conservatives try to rebut the Colbert Asian joke nontroversy.  I'm sure the failed satire and further exposure of their hatred will provide much hilarity.

Here is how much of an asshole Dinesh D'Souza is.


He's an asshole allright, but being in the company of a woman who is not the wife he is in the process of divorcing does not contribute to that.

Ambivalence: Somacandra: Prey4reign: fusillade762: What ever became of his campaign finance shenanigans?

Seeing as how his indictment was handed down less than three months ago, perhaps it's waiting to be scheduled for trial?

I thought people under indictment usually tried to keep a low profile.

Sure, if they're smart.


I'm going to make a wild guess here that he's trying to promote his Obama movie so he can make some money for his legal defense.

The whole right wing echo chamber is one giant effort of a bunch of people making their livings fleecing the tubes and contrarians - with a few dumb true believers mixed in.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

That's what the true believers are.

It seems like every three months or so Conservatives put something out there to try and be funny and it just flops.  Miserably.  Even with Dennis Miller largely switching sides the landscape is just impossible for Conservative humor to be created without it coming off as cruel.  Largely I think this is because the first core issue is the inability to make fun of themselves; Liberal humor starts from the supposition that "were kinda messed up....but not as messed up as they are!" and it works.  Conservative humor starts and ends with "They're wrong and were right.  If you listened to us and did what we say things would be alot better.  End of discussion."

But hey, they've got that Minority Outreach initiative going gangbusters for them, eh?

Well, they weren't cowards.  They were insane murdering assholes, but I really don't think you can label them as cowards.

Dude. If you could get a Putin look a like banging that Sarah palin look a like porn star. That'd be cash money!

Oh, who am I kidding. GOP porn buyers are only gonna spend money on gay stuff. NTTAWWT.

One man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist.

Both fight for what they believe in. The difference is how we view their beliefs. I view religion as a stupid relic of our ignorance while developing the knowledge of our species, so killing in god's name is pretty retarded.


America is the big guy. The ONLY way to fight us is to fight dirty. Therefore it is illogical to say all those fighting us are terrorists because of cheap tactics.

Wow.  I think it's perfectly acceptable to label them terrorists as taking the lives of innocents is not a thing you should do....no matter what freedom you think you're fighting for.

Of course there have never been any instances where suicide bombers were coerced into the job, so there is no way they could have been scared.
