Smothered in Unfunny Sauce

and garnished with desperate lameness...

Democrats as well as Republicans do some rather funny things. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are so successful because they understand funny is funny no matter what side of the aisle it comes from. This new show from Fox News Channel called the 1/2 Hour News Show is all about unfunny. The "anchors" are stiff and just throw away lines. They are clearly not comedians, nor are they come off as being very smart. Jon Stewart and Colbert are comedians who are very smart. Even though they may have an off night (heck they at least have the excuse of having to come up with material every night while this faux-faux news program is once a week).

There is even a sketch where it is 2009 and Rush Limbaugh is president and Ann Coulter is Vice-president. While it did finally have the two in the same room, debunking my belief that Ann was just an anorexic Limbaugh in high heels and a blond wig, the sketch was pretty flat. A druggie and a nutcake running our country, what a thought.
