Monday's Washington Post touted on the front page a story on "Pointed comedy: Laughing Liberally prepares to take its 'This Ain't No Tea Party' show national." Emily Wax's story on the front of the Style section utterly failed to find the funny:
In a grungy basement comedy club on West 46th Street, Elon James White, 32, bursts onstage in a hooded sweat shirt, hip-hopistan baseball cap askew, and lobs an opening joke about Rep. Michele Bachmann.
"I’m a fan of Republicans. They are just so damn entertaining. They’re the best reality show — ever. Forget the Kardashians, I want to know what the Bachmanns are up to," he hoots.
"That’s right, everyone. I’m a Negro in a hoodie, and I know who Michele Bachmann is," he continues, as the audience claps and roars. "Sorry, but I’m paying attention!"
