Ask a Republican. Hello! I often get asked questions about Republican policy by greasy-haired liberal hippies. Seattle was no exception in Sept of 2005. It was teeming with them. May God bless you and America. Quicktime videos [via the monkey]

you know, maybe i should go back to DC, sit in the back of one of those republican speeches and bring a laugh track with me. republicans make waaaay better comedians than politicians.

"And I found the bass to be unnecessarily loud compared to the treble."

Funny stuff. It looks like the Daily Show/Colbert forma has trickled down to the stand-up crowd.

Q:"Why do you care more about fetuses than the babies that are later born?
A:"Well.. when a life form is a fetus, we don't know whether or not it's gay yet..."

Excuse my french, but that is solid fucking gold.

The deficit rag, oh yeah the deficit rag,
Those budget gaps can be a twelve-digit drag,
I'm telling ya, that's the deficit,
They really made a mess of it,
That's the deficit rag!

Can somebody explain to me why making jokes about Ted Kennedy is funny? (I'm Canadian)

This was good, thanks.

Ted Kennedy is like the Ur-Democrat, the mold from which all other Democrats are cut. It helps that he's fat, red-faced and from Boston. It also helps that his brothers were more talented than he. Plus, there was that little thing about the secretary, the car and the lake.

I'd say its more that Ted Kennedy is pretty much a fullfillment of the Republican steriotype of Democrats. Not that he doesn't have a lot of political clout and some occasional good ideas, but he's more of a liability to the Democratic Party than a benefit.

You left out the accent. That's key.

Figured that would be part of the "from Boston" thing. It's a double-whammy. He's a damned Yankee northerner AND he has a funny accent. ;-)

it's part of that bridge building thing ... now if there had been a bigger bridge ...

you know, ted kennedy is the Ur-democrat the way that trent lott is the Ur-republican. He's not. He's just an unfortunate example of us.

But really, it's just the huge head. The man's pillow is the size of most beds.

Q: Why do you give tax breaks to oil companies, but not to poor people who need them?
A: Well, last time I checked, my car didn't run on poor people. And the homeless, while oily, don't fit into a gas tank.


Excellent stuff.

Very funny -thanks!

Oh man, this is classic, lots of laughs and smiles there. I'm forwarding this to some republican 'friends'. I'm sure they'll appreciate the humor. Or perhaps they'll just take it in straight faced and go 'what, what's the matter with this?'

I'd vote for this guy.

Heh. I saw this guy MCing at the Hollywood Improv a couple of weeks ago. He was great: stayed in character the whole time, took questions from the audience... Very funny.
