Andrew Breitbart: Mall Cop

Cow Towing to Other Countries

The Addiest Hominem Evar

Now, getting a little personal every now and then is all in good fun (see post below), but I don’t even really know what to do with an 1,100-word piece dedicated solely to comparing liberals to cockroaches.

This is a problem in general with Big Hollywood‘s stable of comics.  It’s not that I’m humorless, that I couldn’t potentially laugh at a joke poking fun at liberals/Obama/Democrats/whatever.  It’s that they forgot the funny. 

And I don’t think it’s because they’re stupid, or conservative, or that conservatives necessarily have a poor sense of humor.  It’s that they’re not even really trying to be funny.  Being funny isn’t the goal.  Joking around is just a more passive-aggressive vehicle for the same old talking points.

At least this piece contains BH’s chief pleasure, the ludicriously overextended metaphor, though.  It’s just more fun when it appears in the redfaced “YOU LIBERALS ARE JUST LIKE…” mode than in the “Harr harr, more like DUMBocrats amirite?” mode.

Points for the “Wickedpedia” neologism, though.

Sidebar to Skip Press:  Madonna jokes have not been funny since 1998.  Paris Hilton jokes have not been funny since 2002.  Next time, update Leno-level pop-culture jokes to mock Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga.
