Libs Lack Sense of Humor
As if the comments we get on this blog aren't enough evidence, the liberals in the media have proven once again that liberals have no sense of humor.
Mrs. Bonjo and I were channel surfing Saturday night when we came across the White House Correspondent's dinner. Usually Mrs. Bonjo prohibits me from watching any news when she's around. However, on screen were President and Laura Bush, and Laura Bush took the podium and started roasting the President.
It was hilarious. Anyone who saw this knew she was reading a script, but it was a good one, and she did a great job. It was very entertaining. Especially when she said things that were so outrageous you knew they weren't true.
One of my favorite lines, "I was the librarian who spent 12 hours a day in a library, and yet somehow I met George." That was classic, self-deprecating humor.
Of course, the liberals have to find something to whine about.
"Some in the press ... began to criticize her monologue as immodest at best and downright bawdy at worst."At least one woman from the AP had the guts to tell the truth:
A female Associated Press reporter said [Mrs. Bush] "had women giggling in the bathroom."This woman has obviously never met Ted Turner. Which reminds me, there is no word yet as to whether or not CNN founder Ted Turner was shocked by Mrs. Bush's remarks.
"Laura Bush cracks risque jokes at the White House Correspondents' dinner," sniffed Agence France-Presse. [THIS SHOULD BE THE HEADLINE: MRS BUSH OFFENDS FRENCH--APPLAUDED BY SOTR]
CNN reporter Elaine Quijano, who attended the dinner, also apparently had her sensibilities scarred by some of the first lady's quips. "In some respects, I think for some folks it was a little shocking because she kind of crossed the line a little bit in some people's minds," she said.
To all these whiners, I simply remind them of an event honoring President Clinton where Robin Williams was given the podium. He launched into a tirade of four letter words that were simply insulting to the office of the President of the United States. And for some odd reason, I don't recall hearing the media express their "shock" at the "downright bawdy" comments.
Mrs. Bush's remarks were first and foremost, a chance to poke fun at herself and President Bush, and second, a commentary on today's society--good or bad.
I now return to my capitalist endeavors.
