Television and the political environment:
Democratic Caucus Chairman Rep. Rham Emanuel is advising freshman lawmakers to avoid the risky, humor-laden minefield that is The Colbert Report. Censorship, political correctness, and the pathological avoidance of humor — usually the treasured province of the Republican party, are concepts now being embraced by DNC leadership. With newfound majorities in both the Senate and the House, enthusiastic, neophyte Democratic Congressmen are being groomed for longterm political stodginess by their more politically seasoned Chairman. Mr. Emanuel is instructing Congressional freshmen on how to handle the pesky press, spend more time in their districts, mitigate risk and get re-elected time and time again.
But some wayward Congressmen still insist on wading into the dangerous waters of Colbert’s “Better Know a District,” unprepared and armed with limited comedic chops they face an overheated layer of comedy ozone where satire and entrapment can lead to both laughs and Congressional roadkill. Should our Congressmen be asked to take a stand on throwing kittens into wood chippers? I think so. In a political environment rife with deceit, depression and despair — humor may be one of our only alternative remedies. So turn off Fox News and pull your head out of that kitchen oven; turn off the gas and turn on Comedy Central. Fight the two party political system where it really matters — cable ratings.
