They had the annual competition for the funniest person in Washington last week. I wasn’t invited again. I’m really torn about this. On the one hand, I’m not sure I’d want to do it. I try to discourage folks from describing me as a conservative “humorist” whenever possible. On the other hand, it bugs me I’ve never been invited. They invite all sorts of folks with even less of a reputation for being amusing than me. I mean Julianne Malveaux was invited this year. And from the reports I’ve heard, she was exactly as funny as you’d expect.
