It's no wonder tensions are high on FR and elsewhere when all it takes to deeply and egregiously offend people is a burp. What next? Snickering at a funeral is suddenly a capital offense?
Plenty of serious issues abound. Plenty of people take them very seriously. But since it isn't for you or anyone else to decide for anyone else what is and is not funny, I'd tend to agree that many, many people here need to lighten up. Way up.
Personally, if I want funny I'll watch reruns of "Seinfeld" or "Everyone loves Raymond', they don't hold the future of the country in their hands and don't march men off the battlefield.
I also don't find it 'funny' when people in our party don't realize when they are being laughed AT to the delight of all the MSM.
Just take another look at that clip with Rove through the eyes of the media and you'll see a performing monkey.
