Democrats are dull dogs
September 20, 2012 - Harry Eagar
So, OK, I was wrong again, for about the fourth time this campaign season. It's been the most entertaining of my lifetime, but I keep saying the good times cannot keep rolling on. So, so wrong, as least as regards the GOP.
But where are the funny Democratic videos? All we get are earnest explanations about why it would be good to allow youngish illegal aliens to go to school or claims to have saved the auto industry.
I did think that buttoned-down and buttoned-up Mitt Romney would suck all the fun out of the party after getting the formal nomination. Wrong again.
The humor-deprived (the only deprivation he's ever suffered, aside from coffee) Romney has had help, of course. Who can forget:
William Akin's "legitimate rape" speech, although loyal Mrs. Akin's defense of her hubby comparing objections by even (some) Republicans to be equivalent to "rape" topped that. Too bad we don't have videotape of the Akins talking about rape over the morning coffee. That would be a caution.
Paul Ryan's claim to be a sub-three hour marathon runner. Turns out he did ONE -- count 'em, 1 -- marathon, but he didn't run it. His time of over four hours was closer to a fast walk.
For chutzpah, nothing tops Sarah Palin's rant against someone at the Democratic convention who displayed a "Once you go black, you never go back" sign. Pretty tacky sign, to be sure, but considering that Palin did marry a white guy after ballin' Glen Rice, it took nerve for her to call it out. (Follow link and read very funny comment, which the moderator appears not to have understood.)
Almost anything by Texas congressman Louie Gohmert, for example his weird take on the Aurora shootings.
Funnier than all of these, though, is Romney's claim about the "47%" that he could have expressed himself "more elegantly." Still waiting for that.
Pure comedy gold.
The Democrats, on the other hand, are the lame joke party. All they have to offer is the first lady pressing kids to eat their veggies.
My fellow, Muricans, I ask you, can we stand four more years of an administration incapable of generating a funny viral Youtube video?
