Couldn't Agree More
As an evil rightwing deathbeast with a sense of humor (all us Joos have it, plus we wake up in the morning already knowing the spot price of diamonds), I have noticed over the years the slide in humor from the left. There was a time when the left had much more humor than it does now, and the right seemed to be the glum, glowering, humorless bunch. NOw it’s reversed. Either that, or when I was in their camp, back in the 60s and 70s, I just thought they were funnier. Today all they seem to have is invective. They are never self-effacing. They are full of self-righteousness and always see themselves as permanently occupying the high ground on every issue. I’m really amazed that some leftwing commentator like Jon Stewart doesn’t make some jokes about the permanent state of “outrage” the liberals are in. It’s such fertile ground for comedy. I guess it’s up to us.
