um...

You ever hear of "making your opponent's case for them", HEO?

Conservative website Human Events Online details the Top Ten Most Conservative Cities in America and the Top Ten Most Liberal Cities.

While the latter includes Seattle, Madison, Portland, Boston, San Francisco, and New York, the former contains such stellar locales as: Boise, ID; Clarksville, TN; Oklahoma City; Colorado Springs; Abilene and Plano, TX; and Provo, UT.

You know, you really don't have to know anything more about politics in America than that to make an informed decision about which side to pick, do you?

And that megaphone crooning! Now THAT was music!

While I've been actually working for a change, slammerkinbabe has done a fine job holding down the make-fun-of-ridiculous-conservative-pundits end of things, as this post clearly indicates. However, she missed this delicious pastry treat from John "Hindrocket" Hinderaker at Powerline. Hindrocket has his knicks in a twist at Stephen Colbert's insufficiently deferential performance at the White House Correspondent's dinner; seeing this so-called comedian refuse to play along and be chummy and instead deliver undulled barbs not ten feet from the worst president in history makes the impotent Powerliner long for the old days when comedians were truly funny.

I wasn't surprised by this, inasmuch as I'd never heard of Steve Colbert, and it's been a long time since I heard a political humorist who was very funny. Comedians, in general, don't seem very funny to me nowadays. For that matter, neither does politics. If you want to take a break from current events and remind yourself what it was like when comedians had no agenda other than being funny, check out this clip from the Jack Benny show.
