I yearn for the days when Chevy Chase fell…and everyone laughed. Mr. Chase, a comedian, was poking fun at one of the most athletic presidents in our history, Gerald Ford. Athletic, but a bit of a klutz. Something I can relate to…the klutzicism, not the athleticism. Wow, I just invented a word. The thing is, when Chase fell, everyone laughed…including President Ford. Our politicians, and “the two sides of one bird” aren’t making us laugh very much…nor are they laughing.
Are things so bad that we can’t laugh at ourselves? Just look for a little humor. Does everything have to be so serious…morbidly serious. Do all jokes have to be divisive? Must we insist that every political statement is followed by insistence we boycott the poor stiff who made it?
I know there are subjects we shouldn’t poke fun at but after seeing the American political experiment in action for over sixty years…the President ain’t one of those subjects. I would say anyone involved in politics ain’t one of them. Hey, remember President Johnson and his “Johnson?” That was a real knee slapper. Double entendre? Possibly, I wasn’t there.
Just saw a news report stating that a train carrying GOP congressmen ran into a garbage truck. Wish one of the passengers on the truck hadn’t died for many reasons, one of which is there is something humorous about boarding the “Trump Train” and hitting a garbage truck. Am I terrible? I’m sorry…for their loss.
It’s either humorous or President Obama owned the trash company, purchased through several shell companies, and bought with money loaned to him by Hillary from the bribes she received from the sale of the Uranium One business. Again, I am sorry someone died. (Special thanks to Max Holland for starting me on this runaway train.)
I have hopes that when we elect a new president, he or she is a comedian…not red nose or floppy shoes funny, but funny…maybe Gerald Ford funny.
If you take offense to my humor I suggest you go look for yours and come back later. Love and Kisses.
