As much as I like Jon Stewart, it's been good to see him proven wrong. When the Bushman left and the even-tempered, parody-resistant Barack Obama came in, Stewart solemnly called it "the death of comedy."
He was wrong. The GOP/Fox News clown show has been very funny indeed, and it shows no sign of winding down. Many laughs remain.
I mean, with the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Cong. Michelle Bachman, Cong. John "I Gotta" Boehner, Bill O'Reilly, Gretchen Carlsen, Mitch "McChinless" McConnell, etc., etc., who needs Dubya for cheap laffs?
All these years we've been laughing at Bush, hardly knowing that there were even bigger (if less powerful) doofuses than him in the GOP hierarchy. .
Believe me, this clown show isn't over yet, even with The Dauphin gone. Just tune by C-SPAN some time and you'll see what I mean.
You'll find yourself saying aloud, "You mean someone actually VOTED for this pinhead?"
Someone once called C-SPAN "the network that dares to be dull." Not any more. The Republicans have got a real sideshow going these days -- and the best part is, they don't even know it!
There'll be a lot more mouth-breathing, knuckle-walkin' GOP stars to emerge in the months ahead. I'm counting on it.
