I Love When the Conservatives Try to Be Funny


Who says that conservatives aren’t the party of ideas?


Despite the hilarity and biting satirical cleverness of the ad, one is tempted to ask a few questions:

  1. Do conservatives really believe that all African-Americans look alike? I mean, this guy has a shaved head and some of the most amazingly ridiculous sideburns I’ve ever seen. Obama, as it turns out, does not.
  2. Wasn’t it probably a waste of resources to subtitle this epic? It’s not like the kind of people who find it clever will get much use out of them.
  3. His grandmother? Really?

Once again, conservatives: DON’T TRY THE HUMOR. You’re only effective at the unintentional kind. If you’ve ever laughed at a ‘joke’ on the Rush Limbaugh show, NEVER TRY TO USE HUMOR.
