Not Necessarily A News Channel

The new show The 1/2 Hour News Hour, which is supposed to be the conservative version of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, aired for the first time tonight on the Fox News Channel.

There were Hillary Clinton jokes, and jokes about the ACLU, and jokes making fun Ed Begley Jr.'s devotion to recycling and reducing energy consumption. They weren't able to find a single thing to make fun of about the party (that would be the Republicans) that has pretty much controlled the country for the past 6 years, nor could they find any humor worthy of mention about George Bush in particular, either.

But of course Barack Obama's middle name -- Hussein -- was mentioned, as was a fictional magazine about Obama they dubbed BO magazine.

Get it? Obama's initials are B.O. -- the same initials as body odor!!!

Speaking of b.o., I know something that stinks, and you can catch it on Sunday nights on Fox.

The truth is, if you want to hear a really funny Hillary Clinton joke, you need to watch The Daily Show, where comedy is central, not your political affiliation.

Let's hope for a quick cancellation. The word crap comes to mind.
