Conservative Humor

This makes sense to me.

I think possibly this may bring us to the real barrier for conservative comics, and honestly, for some left-wing comedians as well. Staunchly ideological, partisan kind of thinkers are rarely as funny as those who can see both sides of an issue. I don't always agree with moderates, but they're more funny. Great satire can be designed to convince an audience, but the best jokes are usually focused solely on being jokes as opposed to expressing a political viewpoint.

Funny is funny, ideology aside, but conservatives too often think repeating their slogans REALLY LOUDLY is a substitute for humor.
