The only true medicine for the pain of politics is laughter—after all, if we weren’t laughing at the (mostly) unintentional humor emanating from Washington D.C. and state capitols, chances are we’d be crying. Budget pandemonium is in full effect as Republicans race to slash social services, leaving poor, sick & helpless grandmothers in their wake, while Democrats do a lot of hand wringing and crying and not much else. And it's always fun to laugh at a gloriously uninspiring field of GOP presidential candidates. Tomorrow we’ll probably cry about our lost jobs, but today join us in laughing at the madness of it all—the truth hurts far less when it’s told by comedians. Your politically incorrect comedians:
