Dear Right Wing People:

I just wanted you to know that we will laugh with you, we will always be laughing AT you.  You, and you need to understand this, are not funny.  You will never BE funny.  I'm sorry, I know you THINK you are funny, but...you're not.

Sincerely;
Everyone that ever existed.

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.

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.

Of course. Because he supports aristocratic thug capitalism and unabashedly bashes gays. He's openly what they wish they could admit to being.

Thats because they are authoritarian and only at most marginally conservative.

"Authoritarian" should be said with the same disdain that "liberal" is said by conservatives.

Reminds me of all those silly 'interview' segments that you would hear on "Morning Zoo" radio programs back in the 80s where are the responses were bits from songs. Hey, congrats Dinesh on repackaging an idea that is at least 30 years old as a shameless plug for your new movie that I'm sure proves that liberals are poopy-heads.

fusillade762: mrshowrules: Even talented comedians are not dumb enough to try and parody a parody.  A conservative doing is obviously going to be a train wreck.

Has a parody ever successfully parodied a parody?



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


"In Like Flint" and "Our Man Flint" were parodies, I'd say.

Well, Scream was a parody of horror movies, and Scary Movie was a parody of that.  So I guess that's technically one.

sugardave: Satanic_Hamster: tripleseven: 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.

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

Heroes, really, amirite?


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.

mr intrepid: LectertheChef: 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.

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.


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.

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.

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.
