detailing why conservatives are hilarious and liberals have robbed themselves of the pleasure.
P.J. O'Rourke may have nailed the self-imposed shackles worn by "progressive" comics in the introduction to Reptile. There he wrote that when a conservative sees an old woman slip and fall on her butt he'll say, "You shouldn't laugh at that." But a liberal, in the American context, will say, "You cannot laugh at that."
From my own experience, P.J. O'Rourke got a mention in my recent exposure(!) of Protest Babes
. As for unfunny left-wing humour? Well... There's this
to partly illustrate the point.
