Classic Comedy

I bet that this clip will be on half the blogs in America before the day is over. It would be even funnier if it wasn’t so true.

A quote that I read just yesterday, from Molly Ivins, seems appropriate.

”There are two kinds of humor. One kind that makes us chuckle about our foibles and our shared humanity -- like what Garrison Keillor does. The other kind holds people up to public contempt and ridicule -- that's what I do. Satire is traditionally the weapon of the powerless against the powerful. I only aim at the powerful. When satire is aimed at the powerless, it is not only cruel -- it's vulgar.”
