Okay, I give up. I can't even believe I had to type that title. I'll let Steve @ Carpetbagger give you the rest:

Townhall's Doug Giles noted in his newest column that when it comes to comedy, "Mr. and Mrs. Conservative, you must bow and kiss the Left's ring. They slay us. You can count on one hand how many conservatives are making a semi-distinct blip on the comedic scene." In the kind of piece one can only find at Townhall, Giles explores why the left is funnier than the right.

Why can't conservatives get their comedic act together? The liberals, on a 24/7 basis, are tossing us soft balls that we should be driving out of the park in a humorous, prime time, way. It's so easy it's stupid. All we have to do is just read the crap that the left does, out loud, and it's hilarious. We don't even have to be that imaginative and try to develop quips, as they provide an endless supply of ammunition. We couldn't make up the stuff they do even if we wanted to - no one on the planet is that creative.

The secular left is an amalgam of mayhem, a veritable Star Wars bar scene, a rogue gallery of freaks, geeks, nuts, sluts, slick politco's and skanky ho's - and we're letting them walk without skewering the living day lights out of them.

What's wrong with us? We've become nicer than Christ.

Um, yeah. This is nice and hilarious. And this is near-Christlike. This is good for some belly laughs. And who could forget this Mother of All Conservative Jokes? That's right, Doug, you wingnuts are damn near walking on water.

Can you help us out?
