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.
