Brace yourself ... right-wing humour is back.

And just when you've finally recovered from the stomach-churning, intellectual colonic that is "The America Show," well ... God help us, it just gets worse.

AFTERSNARK: From that post, this might well be the paragraph of the year:

Comedy is truth, truth is reality, and if "Reality has a well-known liberal bias" for now, anyway, you just have to suck that up if your job is the funny. One party has boring, earnest junior Senators with competing health plans running for President. The other party has the guy in charge of fighting child pornography online soliciting minors online, a Senator who talked about "man on dog" action, a State Representative who doesn't believe the Earth revolves around the Sun, and a Vice-President who won on an anti-gay platform with a gay daughter who's pregnant with another woman's child, which may be why he shot a dude in the face. Nobody's fault Fate dealt one player the "goofy" cards for the last few hands.

Reality has a well-known liberal bias. And being hideously unfunny has a similarly well-known conservative bias. Doesn't that just explain a whole lot?

First, a site that intends to be serious but leaves everyone in stitches (conservapedia), and now a show that intends to be funny but is utterly unfunny.

Conservatives: Forever accomplishing the exact opposite of what they intend to do.

Speaking of Conservative humour, I found this delightful little quote in the Globe & Mail today:

"I doubt you can find many native South Carolinians today whose family, if you traced them back far enough, didn't own slaves," said Ms. Senter, 61, of Columbia, S.C. She added: "And it is wonderful that [Sharpton] was able to become what he is in spite of what his forefather was."

Well, I thought it was hysterical, in a vomit-inducing kind of way.
