Politicians Should be Mocked More Often

Even with humor, there is no "fair and balanced" approach on the MSM late night shows except Jay Leno, whose jokes were about pols on both sides. According to the other "comedians," the only politicians worth mocking are the GOP,and frankly, I didn't find any of the jokes funny. Obama is a laugh-fest without writers. Very few call him out on his gaffes or demagoguery, though.

what about obama's teleprompter? someone is telling him what to say, in case he is called on it he can always claim that he did not say it, "they" - soros? - made him do it.

I’m periodically asked why I share political humor on  this blog. The glib and easy answer is that it’s good to share amusing material.

But there’s also a serious point, especially when disseminating jokes from the late-night talk shows. Politicians should be mocked. And the more pretentious they are, the more vicious we should be.

Even the ones we like should be subject to ridicule. Elected officials often get very egotistical because they spend all day being flattered by lobbyists. Our role is to make sure there’s a countervailing force.

So enjoy these gems.
