The Corner

Re: South Park Cons

With the possible exception of the bestiality humor (her husband trying to milk a boy horse) none of Laura’s schtick bothered me. I thought it was all in good fun and fine. What made it funny is that she’s so obviously not a raunchy babe.

However, as I said at the time, I really, really disliked the Bush Twins’ similar routine at the GOP convention. I guess the differences include the distinction between insidery events (Correspondents’ dinner) and outsidery events (the infomercial convention); the fact that Laura’s a better joke-teller; and the fact that Bush Twins make a plausible case that they’re being sincere when they’re playing to type.
