Arne BS: Liberal hate (183* d) RE: BS: Liberal hate 10 May 06


BTW, I think some person or organisation ought to institute a Jonathan Swift prize for the best political satire of the year. For the inaugural year, I'd nominate Colbert, hands down. I suspect that Swift's "A Modest Proposal" didn't get too many chuckles from his contemporaries either, but it's an acknowledged masterpiece. As was Colbert's number there.

Cohen seems to think that he deserves to be humoured, even impelled to guffaws of gentle-natured laughter, by the reigning "comedian" who makes light of such innocuous subjects as the lack of WoMDs that were to be the cause celebre for an unprovoked invasion that has cost well over 2400 servicemen's families the ultimate price in the last couple of years. Sorry to say, Colbert, some things just ain't too funny ... you know, like roasted infants ... but Cohen may not be too aware of this, being seemingly on the short end of the stick as far as literacy goes. Cohen got his own balls toasted good, and he comes out and whines, "That's not funny!!!!" It's about time that Cohen figured that out, and when (and if) he ever does, he might be a better person for it.

Cheers,
