    Let's talk "gravitas" and how the President doesn't seem to appreciate this. What the heck is he doing talking on Leno when he won't talk honestly to we, the people?

    didn't know you were deep into Obama's inner circle... reading the tea leaves with his advisors and such.

    Worldview has some of it, but audience is probably a bit more important. There are different comedian types. lots of standups avoid political humor. Certain ones fill the niche because there is a call for it. You have your Bill Mahers and your lewis blacks. But lots of them stay away from charged humor which would be an easy bomb in certain areas, and alter their routines depending on audience. A late night host is expected to make commentary on recent news events, and political humor is going to get in there. I would say a talk show host is probably most defined by what makes it into the main stream news.

    As for saying stupider things, there is a difference between disagreeing with a worldview and doing things like completely botching known biological fact like how a vagina works, embracing creationism and religious accounts as facts, making up new words so often it becomes a bushism, and doing things like insulting 47 percent of americans at your rich white guy fund raiser during a presidential election. There is a difference between denyong facts, and just making a statement that is a different point of view. For example abortion. If a person wants to argue a fetus is a life because it has possibilities or it's heart beats that is not a joke and becomes a debate. If a person wants to say a woman who is raped stops her uterus from working because she doesn't consent, that is comical and a joke. Also, if a person is over the age of 5 and believes the flintstones is a documentary because of another radically fictional book that is another joke, where a person who simply believes in god and regards the bible as parable or allegory is just being philisophical.

    Really, audience is the big thing.
    See, you're going to scoff when I say this, however, it is incredibly easy to see how your political perspective skews the discussion. One could just as easily point out the foolishness of liberal fads such as the green movement or revolutionary fervor on the Left.

    You see what you did there? "Bushism" is one of those new words.
