Mean-spirited Bush jokes
July 28, 2005
Matt Alexander over at McSweeneys has put together a collection of anti-Bush jokes, some of which he dubs "gratuitous and mean-spirited." I think they're just not funny. And that's downright unforgivable with such a choice target. Sample:
Did you hear that Bill Clinton hired a new intern? It turns out that his old intern had to go home and spend time with her family after her brother was killed in Iraq.
A doctor, a lawyer, and an accountant all die and go to heaven on the same day. When they get to the Pearly Gates, they are greeted by St. Peter. St. Peter says, "Scott McClellan is a lying sack of shit and I'd tell him so myself if he weren't going straight to hell when he dies."Umm, yeah, whatever. I got a bigger laugh out of this email I just received from one of my most devoted fans: "You're trivial, your stupid party is trivial. If only democrats had actual performance standards. You'd still be irrelevant, I just wouldn't be subjected to your tripe." Now that's funny
