Is It Funny to Joke About A Political Victory As Akin to Rape?

Via Mediaite today: Stewart Tackles GOP’s ‘Tectonic Skullf*cking,’ Sh*t-Eating Grins at Fox

Jon Stewart kicked off tonight’s Daily Show going over the “tectonic skullf*cking” the Republicans delivered to the Democrats, as well as the sea of sh*t-eating grins at Fox News.

How good a night was it for Republicans? Well, as Stewart explained, the Blue Man Group is now the Red Man Group, Blue’s Clues is now Red’s Clues, and the only thing Democrats still have left to their name is blue balls.

And as for Fox News, well, Stewart said they were happy enough to betray “grins capable of eating massive amounts of shit.”

Here’s the logo that the Daily Show dreamed up to symbolize the Republican electoral victory on Tuesday:

At the Daily Mail today: “Honey Boo Boo shared hotel bed with her sister’s molester and Mama June, Uncle Poodle claims

Honey Boo Boo shared a hotel bed with her sister’s childhood molester and Mama June, her uncle has claimed. 

Lee ‘Uncle Poodle’ Thompson told the National Enquirer that he saw his nine-year-old niece Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, cuddling her mother and Mark McDaniel during a trip to Cherokee, North Carolina in September.

McDaniel, 53, is accused of repeatedly molesting Honey Boo Boo’s older sister Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell, now 20, when she was just eight.

McDaniel, then Mama June’s boyfriend, served 10 years behind bars and was released in March, and he has been rumored to be seeing the ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ matriarch again.
