That's roughly twice as long as I could stand it.

I find him offensive as well. Not being offensive is not a prerequisite for being funny. The fact remains that the Bozell's of the world are seriously under-endowed when it comes to a sense of humor.

Jack,

I'm not exactly in the conservative bubble. If you'll check some of my previous posts, you'll find I'm often referred to around here (by the ever-so-proper, upright THers) as "idiot", "moron", "comrade", etc.

But I do find much of Seth M's stuff offensive. His humor tends to be crude in the service of crudity, as opposed to crude in the service of an interesting idea. I'm fine with most of Maher's stuff because he uses rough language to make a point, and he's not pitching his act at kids.

There! Jack2894 likes 'Family Guy', I'm a Liberal too and I think 'Family Guy' is stupid. And I'll bet there are lots and lots of Hardcore RightWingNut Rednecks who never miss as episode of Family Guy!

Its hilarious. DO they make you check your sense of humor into storage when you enter the conservative bubble?
The year 2012 was a depressing time for people who are already pessimistic about the state of our common culture. Conversely, the re-election of Barack Obama, in large measure made possible by the heavy financial support of Hollywood, projects the optimism of the cultural Left. They anticipate increased blue-state voting patterns in favor of gay "marriage," legalized pot, gun regulations, and what next? Legalized prostitution? Euthanasia subsidized by Obamacare?

So let's just line up the cultural winners of Obama's America, where the only impediments to progress are those who believe in religion, manners and "family values."

Winner: Seth...
