Ed Morrissey has it right: the Dems have no sense of humor left in them.
One of their guys (DNC director of research Mike Gehrke) has been reprimanded for twittering this:
“Mike is twittering: You know what you call someone who digs up dirt on John McCain? An archeologist.”
Someone in the DNC repeats a Leno joke and gets reprimanded. Unbelievable.
TigerHawk gets to the root of the problem:
The problem, of course, is the hideous identity war going on within the Democrats. With each of the Obama and Clinton campaigns applying the unnatural standards of corporate diversity training to the other while spinning furiously to induce people to vote on the basis of the color of their skin or the contours of the genitalia, any joke that can be contorted into grounds for outrage has been. The Democrats have become even more anti-humor than they are anti-war, which tells you what we are in for if they capture the White House. If you think our “national conversation” is stilted and hyper-sensitive now, just wait until the donks control every branch.
Let’s add to that the groaning and gnashing of teeth we’re going to get once their economic policies and global warming hairshirts get handed out.
