From a reader (and for the record I don’t consider myself a comedian, I just look really funny naked):


I’ve been reading NRO for a year or so now. While I’ve always appreciated your politics, I have to admit I initially found you dreadfully unfunny. It took me 6 months or so to figure out you even fancied yourself a comedian.

Well, I don’t know how it happened, but I’ve caught myself laughing out loud a few times over the past months. You are definitely funny in my view now. Keep up the good work. I’m sure I’ll wake up tonight from a dream in which this line figures prominently:

“I’ll run your piece when I want beeeyotch [Flex].”
