    Not that it matters but id say making fun of blacks is 50% of both of their acts, these are two of my favorite comedians and its a large part of their acts..

    Yes, but I would be an idiot to say it is not somehow seen as taboo.

    I think there are two characteristics that have to be in play...the comedian has to be an equal opportunity across the board anyone and everything goes type offender, and the humor has to be something that pretty much universally people can recognize as funny-which means it has to sting with an element of truth.

    Sure, as long as the white person they are making fun of is Donald Trump:

    I thought Obama's run was awesome...comedy gold...and if people cant recognize that...well...that broom handle thats wedged up your ass is in so deep your anus has hit straw and you should probably back it out a little bit. I actually thought he went easy on Trump.

    He did. He has the perfect pokerface to deliver a monologue like that.

    You know what is really amazing? While he was delivering those comments, he knew that Navy Seals and other military personnel were on their way to take out Bin Laden. Think about the level of cool that it would require to act so nonchalant and amused, all the while knowing that a major military operation to take out the world's biggest terrorist was underway.

    I voted with him with a considerable degree of trepidation, and now I find myself kind of liking the guy.

    My favorite joke was the Biggie and 2pac line, that was priceless, and so was watching the Donald's face.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Why he was even there is beyond me. He likely knew he was going to be fair game.

    Dood went on a Comedy Central Roast. How can he at all be twisted about the jokes last night? I think he caught something from Gary Busey.
