Republicans, don't try and be funny
Because you simply aren't. Period. Humour takes wit, creativity and style, which is everything a conservative doesn't have, as they are permanently incapable of being cool in any sense. To be funny and creative, one needs a free mind and the conservative mindset doesn't allow for this kind of thinking. They obey authority instead.
Your humour, or what passes for it, it so stale, flat, boring, predictable, cliche, that's it is painful to witness.
Need an example, just watch this awful show. You know why is it so lame, because it is reactive only.
No one at Fox dreamed up this show out of the blue because they have great ideas, rather this show is on the air as a reaction to the success of the Daily Show and Colbert. Since they feel the need to 'balance' the media, this sloppy mess of a show turns up on the air. Dennis Miller needs some airtime too, since MSNBC canned his lame circle jerk show last year. Angry paranoid bitter baby boomers need a voice too, dangit!
This show is just as stale as christian music is to mainstream music, never innovative, only imitative, and horribly bad at that.
