Spell Barack Obama's initials

Via Slog comes a clip of Fox Noise Channel's pathetic attempt to compete with the Daily Show. It's kind of like Mad Libs meets the 10th grade talent show, or maybe that really, really lame time period on SNL in the early '80's that had people nobody ever heard of again.

Conservatives aren't funny, at least not in a deliberate way. When they show how racist, juvenile and intellectually stunted they are, it can result in hilarity, in a "is this real or am I getting the flu?" kind of way.

You'd think with as much money as Rupert Murdoch has they could at least pay a studio audience to laugh instead of using a laugh track. A laugh track! Like on cruddy old sitcoms that weren't funny. How stupid do they think we are? Oh, yeah, it's not aimed at us, it's for conservatives.

Never mind.

UPDATE-- This conservative blogger adds to the hilarity:
Material so weak, in fact, that one suspects the writers are all liberals deliberately sabotaging the show, or so horribly out of touch with conservative opinion as to have no real idea what a conservative might find funny, or -- likeliest of all -- convinced conservatives are abject morons who will not get a joke unless it's seltzer-down-the-pants woca-woca-woca sledgehammer obvious.

Note to the 1/2 Hour News Hour's writers: We're conservative, not retarded. There is, I assure you, a distinction, though a subtle one.
Ouch, my side is starting to hurt.
