Stand Up and Deliver

Dennis Prager says we're in a civil war in America. They say the pen is mightier than the sword. And a well-tuned wit is much sharper. Stand Ups for America: Fight the Power With Ridicule

So I decided to fight back with the one weapon I do own: ridicule. If there is one thing that the Left cherishes more than power, it is stature. They can’t stand being laughed at. They want to be seen as noble intellectual public servants, the same thing they see when they look in their mirrors every morning. They buttress those delusions with awards and other recognitions of achievement in the world of group-think, It is why they hate, talk radio, and Fox News; because in this world we refuse to take them seriously.
We decided to exact our revenge by doing what the Left hates most: being laughed at.

It’s something they’re not used to. Most comics and comedy shows are quite kind to the people in power right now. Other than the fabulous Red Eye show and Newsbusted, most political comedy today is centered against Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, with the occasional vintage George Bush joke still sprinkled in for good effect.

Yes, they can dish it out, but they can't take it.
