    Yes. That is exactly what the NYT did. I don’t consider myself to be a sad MAGA. I see myself at a relatively cheerful conservative who sees the humor in political and ideological obsessions.

    Do you find humor in Donald trump’s promises to be an authoritarian thug if he gets re-elected?

    Yes. I think a ludicrous baby- man asserting royal prerogatives as he’s being taken to jail is hilarious. I think a congressman claiming he thought pulling a fire alarm would open a door is hilarious. I think a brawl outside the LA Museum of Tolerance is hilarious. I think is hilarious that we aren’t supposed to say “master bedroom”, “field” or “mother”. I think people chanting the slogans of a group who would cheerfully cut their throats is hilarious. I find the moronic tribalism and catastrophizing of our time is silly in the extreme.

    awesome! Love this.

    A sense of the ridiculous is necessary to get through life.

    When Democrats shout the slogan of Palestine “ From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” we are not to think that is a rallying cry to kill Jews in their way of taking back their land. Democrats do not mean that! Don’t put that label on them!

    I guess it is irrelevant that many Jews themselves take that phrase to be ann anti-Semitic expression of violence and hatred. Victims voices count, until they don’t.

    https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/...an-really-mean

    So this dichotomy of view, this name-calling of Palestinians as they chant their apparent antisemitic chant, got me to thinking about name-calling of TERFS.

    If one questions the advisability of treating minors aggressively with medicalized solutions with surgeries and drugs to combat their body dysmorphia, we are called trans haters promoting a genocide of trans people. Simply questioning the science (�� or maybe I should rightly say “science “) that is increasingly being questioned and adjusted in European countries is considered hate speech.

    The whole thing is interesting, who are the haters and who are not. Probably CNN is the final arbiter if this question, I just need to settle in front of the toob to find their answer.

    I could find humor in GW but I have to dig pretty deep to find Trump humor. I did get a chuckle when Swarzenegger said he could loss some weight by running around his cell three times a day.

    I wouldn't say it's humorous but I'm guessing about half of US voters would consider it karmic. Of course, karma often results in humor, especially when the other half of US voters try to convince us that our justice system has never before been used to achieve political ends. That's definitely humorous!

    Personally I find it sadly humorous when a large minority of the population is cool with the idea of a presidential candidate openly speaking about tossing aside the ‘inconvenient’ parts of the constitution and then those same people claim to be the supporters of ‘freedom’ and are worried that after they die so will freedom.

    Our regional facilities are being overwhelmed with immigrants. A lot of them end up living on the streets in homeless camps, which then are being removed. I assumed they are bussed here from the border. As much of a liberal as I am, the Dems have failed with any sort of solution. Where is Kamala? My local recreation center was temporarily converted to serve recent immigrants. If I got the early news correctly, the report was 10,000 daily border arrests? For what it's worth, Trump never provided any sort of lasting solution either, although his tough stand seemed like a temporary deterrent.

    GOP will have to fabricate any economic failures of Biden, but they may have a point with immigration.

    As Chicago now has ordinances about bus drop offs, the migrants are now being dropped off in suburbs far outside Chicago. Now the burbs are passing their own ordinances.
