Come on Washington, quit making it so easy. We in the world of satire like a challenge; we enjoy making fun of the subtle ironies in politics, digging out the points of ridicule amidst the complicated political policies. And what do you offer up instead: Weiner jokes?? You make it too easy Washington, we thought better of you. Sure, there are enough Republican presidential candidates to make up a March Madness bracket, those guys (and ladies) are always easy to make fun of; President Obama making jokes about the failure of his stimulus program—not quite shovel ready, eh Mr. President—has a cruel irony that’s fun to lambast. So as you make your plans to join us for Comedy Congress, where we laugh at the insanity of politics before it makes us cry, rest assured that your comedians and Patt are ready to sniff out the less-than-obvious humorous story lines. And yes, we’ll be sure to throw in a few Weiner one-liners to take advantage of the low-hanging fruit. But come on Washington, make us work for our comedy! Please come laugh with us at Comedy Congress, where the truth hurts far less when it’s told by comedians.
