Progressives have nothing left to offer

So I'm on facebook reading all the threads about Kathy Griffin and her "press conference" today where she starts blaming others for her misfortune. (the whole sordid thing is at the link above)
Pretty much the consensus is that she brought it on herself and disbelief that she is trying to find blame elsewhere.
Which seems to be a popular thing to do what with Hillary pinning the blame for her loss on everyone but.

Anyway I digress.

A few misguided but brave souls appeared in the threads and proceeded to try and defend Griffin by using the Ted Nugent equivalency.

Well I pointed out that most normal people don't depend on Ted Nugent to shape their political views but progressives slobber uncontrollably over the wisdom spewed by comedians and that is the difference.

The response was a diatribe of insults about me where I lived and what sex acts I wanted to perform with the Donald.
The last took me by surprise cause I thought progressives were cool with gay sex. I guess they are unless they can use it as an insult.

Anyway it occurred to me that progressives aren't even trying to make a persuasive argument anymore. When Trump won the election it's like something just completely snapped.
Now all we get is name calling, beheading photos and gay slurs.

It's like they think if they keep sputtering and screaming and pulling their hair out that the whole country will change it's mind, throw Trump out and inaugurate Hillary making things all right in the world.
Kind of childish huh?

I honestly don't see how this could work, not for 2018 and not for 2020, As time goes on the loci of this behaviour will get smaller and smaller just out of pure exhaustion with the hate and despair.

Progressives are finally committing suicide of their cause and this could be a good thing. Common sense may again prevail.

Leftist become further unhinged

Since Trump decided to pull us out of the Paris climate accord leftists have pretty much gone ballistic.
It's really a non-binding agreement that other countries could use as a cudgel to beat us over the head with to extort taxpayer money and hobble our economy so my opinion is good deal.

Anyway here's some over the top drama queen reactions.


Seems like their reaction to everything is,"WE'RE DOOMED!!!!!" and, "DAMN YOU DONALD TRUMP!!!".

Pass the popcorn please.

Politics killed Comedy

Tucker Carlson has a point here I mean I have to think back for decades to remember a really funny comedian.

It's pretty predictable nowadays, attack Trump run the laugh track then repeat endlessly night after night.
Plenty of comedians skewered politicians in the past and it was funny because they would find humour in their policies or personality quirks. But repeating the same old mantra of racist, fascist, narcissist ad nauseum can only go so far.

I guess it's too much to ask that we go back to a time when comedians really put an effort into making people laugh instead of making political statements.
One of the shortest comedy careers that I know of was Vaughn Meader, he had an act that depended on JFK's administration and when he was assassinated the guy faded away as far as I know.
But he was funny and not the least bit vile.

No one tried to make comedy from Kennedy's assassination because no matter who you were or your politics it would have been considered in very poor taste. I'm not so sure that is the case nowadays.
In this era comedy seems to be based on the possibility.
What's funny about that?
