    It's funny to read, but I'll bet they're vey un-funny on TV. I'm not going to open the link, because I'm afraid I'm right, and that'll ruin the hillarity of the above quote.

    If by "funny" you mean "Trying to be edgy and failing, hard." I would agree with you.

    Let's broaden this topic: are people who espouse non-PC rhetoric simply trying to be noncomformists in a post-modern sort of way by saying things they believe go against the grain, or that they think others are too afraid to say?

    No I mean it was funny. Not as funny as all the fake outrage about complimenting people but still funny.

    I watched it, and they are unfunny. It looks like it's supposed to be a "Politically Incorrect" type of show. Four people sitting around a table 'talking about politics'.

    "Politically incorrect" is just a way to make being a reactionary look like being a rebel.

    Is it still on? I thought it was cancelled as a public service.

    No, the whole concept of being "politically incorrect."

    Wow, that's probably the most rasist thing I've seen in a long time.

    For Christ's sake, it's spelled racist, not rasist! What the hell have they been teaching you in Grade Nine over there?

    It seems like conservatives are trying to do a crass, unfunny version of the Daily Show.

    Hey, that was already in the works. Maybe this is it then?


    I watched the clip. It's abysmal. I don't see how skadistic can find it funny. It's unfunny, and it's torturous to watch. It almost looks like an attempt to make talking about politics seem hip.

    You guys have no sense of humour. It seems that it is okay to make bad Jokes about th Repulbicians but when someone says bad about the Democrats then it is not funny. Lighten up guys.

    I hadn't thought of it that way. I thought it just sucked.

    There's a difference between making fun of the Democrats (which has been done plenty of times, for example on the Daily Show, often with how incompetant the party is) and making a politically incorrect joke for the sake of a cheap political laugh. Leave the politically incorrect jokes to the comedians, not something that is trying to be political - there's plenty of political humor that can be done without resorting to stereotypes in politics.
