Part 1 – Stand Up Comedy
Now imagine you are a stupidparty disciple and you would like some comic relief to take your minds off all your fears and all your bigotry. So off you trot, happily packed into a venue filled with like minded, empty headed, entitled gullible fools. Now you sit back and have a jolly good laugh. Would you like a joke? – well imagine a Stupipdarty comedian walking into hall of hate and trying to be funny… this is what you get… take it a way Clint.
Clint Eastwood and the empty chair: A terribly sad fiasco. But why was it so awkwardly unfunny? Remember the empty chair was Obama, and Obama’s fictional comments were laced with venom and expletive language—tools never employed by Obama. If you are going to attack someone, make it based on that person, not your imaginary version of that person. Here is an explanation: punch lines should be clever, based on at least an element of truth. The fact is that there is Global Warming, Obama has had to achieve compromise by going to the right, and Obama at that point of time (August 2012) had overseen job growth for 30 months (today it is 72 months). It is really tough for Stupidparty to make jokes about jobs since they have only one strategy: below-minimum-wage jobs created by the trickle-down effect (from the wealthy getting more tax cuts, paid for by stripping benefits and protections away from everyone else). It is just asking too much to expect that such jokes, when supporting such odious policies, would be funny.
Let us look at a list of the most well-known Comedians operating in recent years.
Apparently, it is tough to find comedians that lean Stupidparty.
I was perhaps being generous putting Dennis Miller on the list, but back in the day his rapid-fire verbal jousting was pretty funny and he could hold an audience in his spell. But then 9/11 happened and possibly he learned all the wrong lessons. While most people around the world would have been comfortable with going after Bin Laden in Afghanistan, the incorrectly prioritized Iraq focus (driven by George Bush’s personal defects) gradually changed all that. The September 11 tragedy had given the USA a great opportunity to strike a deep chord with many other countries, as the world community had been horrified by the event. But people like Dennis Miller allowed jingoistic outrage to trump introspection and the pursuit of a worthy foreign policy strategy. Having made that mistake and then voting Stupidparty in the 2004 election, thereby choosing to ignore the facts, Dennis Miller and the rest of Stupidparty supporters are forced to double down in order to rationalize that second Iraq war, which can now clearly be seen as having been undertaken only after a huge deception.
This doubling down, this entrenchment, this calcification of the brain, has a serious apparent side effect for Dennis Miller, in that he is no longer funny. He now apparently spends his time failing to add humor to various shows on Fox.
Steven Crowder. I found a Comedian so unfunny that even Fox had to give up—here is the context:
Yiannopoulos (“feminism is cancer”) was joined at the College Republicans event, intended as a send-up of “political correctness,” by conservative comedian Steven Crowder, who was dropped by Fox News for being “never that funny,” and Christina Hoff Sommers, a professor who has said campus rape culture leads to “censorship.”
But I guess one could argue that the above is simply my take on famous comedians. So to remedy this possible complaint I simply googled for a list of the best comedians and this was the first site that cropped up.
Clearly my notion of top comedians is in danger of becoming dated. I looked into the top 10 (actually because of a couple of duo’s this list goes to 11.)
But the great thing is that in proving my point – I was kept thoroughly entertained. Warning – my favorite #10 has adult content and will offend those with a more puritanical streak

Perhaps a stupidparty disciple might argue that Clint Eastwood is not a professional comedian. Well fair enough. But finding such a person (Stupidparty Comedian) has proven to be like looking for a needle in a hay stack. But we must soldier (in this case suffer) on.
Stupidparty pays for Professional Comedian
Bingo!—found a Stupidparty “comedian” to keep Dennis Miller company
The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is attended by conservative activists and elected officials from across the nation. More than 100 other organizations contribute in various ways. Heritage Foundation, Let Freedom Ring, the Young America’s Foundation, and the National Rifle Association are some of the most prominent co-sponsors in recent years. So plenty of money to burn, and they need humor to help liven up these wooden gatherings.
Right Wing Watch reported:
“Conservative comedian Brad Stein (bet you have never heard of him) closed out day one of CPAC with a fifteen-minute set that consisted primarily of him railing against ‘the Wussification of America’ and screaming at a seventeen-year-old kid in the front row because kids today are, in Stein’s view, representative of the very ‘wussification’ he detests . . . like requiring cars to have airbags or drivers to use seat belts and child safety seats.”
But if you are a critical thinker, you hardly need to be a professional to be funny.
