This just isn't funny. I'm a horrible human being, I will laugh at the most vile things, but they have to be funny.

Also, related, the socially acceptable way for liberals to pass around ra it's jokes is to wait for a Republican politician to get caught emailing it, and then pass around the article about that -- everyone just skips down to the racist joke, that little nugget of delightfully offensive humor.

Resident abortionist and second-wave feminist here: I disagree. It's VERY funny.

Mr. Deity going at it with his usual subtlety. Unfortunately, nearly all of that script could be direct quotes from the Congressional Record.

I don't think it's funny, either, but I do think it's good satire.

It didn't make me laugh, but it gave me a cynical smile. Thanks, RNC!

It didn't make me laugh, but it gave me a warm tingle knowing that it's annoying someone in the GOP right this very minute.
