    You are citing two men who benefitted greatly from the same tour, and some of the time, the same act. But, I concede your point on that. Dennis Miller's popularity on stand-up has faltered significantly over the years, perhaps as his views changed (an unfortunate side-effect of liberal audiences who simply have a hard time identifying with the man now), but he does have a radio show, and is still out there. Nevertheless, they are certainly a minority of the so-called "Great Names" of comedy presently or historically. The majority of those considered as the best comedians in history were mostly liberals, or those with a severe consideration for their interpretation of the first amendment, and perhaps socially liberal values.

    And no, I do not like Janeane Garafallo nor would use her as an example. She can stay in left-wing circle jerk fests like Maher's show.

    I was taking my point to an extreme.

    My point is that they chose to do a myth that would have an extremely low risk to the President, thus keeping something bad from happening to him -- and to themselves as a result.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    On the other hand, you'd definitely make the history books by being the guys who accidentally vaporized the first black US president with a death ray.

    A few name off the top of my head:

    Chris Rock, Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, Jerry Sienfeld, Dane Cook,Dave Chapelle, Kevin Smith, Russell Peters, Woody Allen. Seriously, stop it. The 3 people you mentioned are unheard of outside of a very small demographic in the U.S.

    Hatuey, certainly isn't a case in point.
    Learn how to use phrases like 'case in point'.

    They should test if he really is a Marxist.
