    What joke is that bubba? Or is it time as usual for you to just be insulting, and jerkish again?

    OH, don't get me wrong...I love Stewart, and Colbert...I think that they are masters at pointing out republican phopa's, and turning them into funny bits...No, what I am talking about is not that it happens on both sides, but rather the reactions to when it happens...I just think it is interesting...So if you find reason to mock, and make fun of that I feel sorry for you, because you display the insecurity you are making fun of....

    More work needed on that introspection. Clue: This thread is full of mockery and a sole whine.

    Show of hands...

    How many of you "liberals," are offended when late night comedians poke fun at President Obama?

    I mean, I have been reading how upset you guys get. I just haven't seen any of you get "upset," with my own eyes. I mostly see them laughing right along with everyone else.

    So here's your chance liberals. Represent.

    Tell us. Do you get upset or just laugh along with the crowd?

    I have no doubt that at the moment they are laughing along with the crowd...However, let's see if that continues as the election season gets closer, and the jokes continue....

    I have come to learn that political jokes basically write themselves. (That is why the GOP, in my opinion, gets the lion's share of them, but I digress.) Of course, the higher the position, the more valuable the joke, I suppose. That would place any POTUS in the line of jokes regardless of political party affiliation.

    I love a good Obama joke myself.

    Here are a couple of my favorite political funnies.

    Yep, and in most cases the target opens themselves up for it....In those cases of benign funny, it is all good, and I think that as adults we can all have a good laugh at ourselves, but do you deny that there are also malicious, and vitriolic comedians out there, like for example a Bill Mahr that take it to a whole other level that divides rather than allow a release of division through comedy?

    See, believe it or not, some over the top stuff even about Obama, I don't care for, and don't think is funny in the slightest...but that is just me.

    Yeah, the Bill Mahr's and Dennis Miller's of the world give a very bad name to comedy. But what else can they do. Neither of them are actually funny compared to other comedians on a national level. All they have left is to suck up to their base followers and tell them what they want to hear. And when they get their tit's in a wringer they always say, "Hey, I'm just a comedian doing my job." They pick and choose the times they should be taken seriously it seems. I see through their bull****.
