John Cleese Is Finally Funny Again!

It's amazing how he perfectly repeats the stupidest, most puerile, most ignorant talking points about American politics, all obviously gleaned from The Guardian's more unhinged columnists, and just deadpans them as if he not only means them, but as if he's doing us a service by repeating stupidity in an arrogant, faux-intellectual manner.

Also check out the sardonic brilliance as he laughs at "his" tritely ignorant observations as if they're gems of comedy.


And in case your sensitivity to sarcasm is set too low, I'm joking, he means every word. He and the other loud, opinionizing Python (Terry Jones) are braindead lefties and have been for a long time. Terry Jones is the angrier, more Kos-like shouter; Cleese, on the other hand, seems to have gotten into lefty politics through New Age-y psychology (he went through a lot of this nonsense during his eighteen divorces and is always parroting the latest deep thoughts from the transcendental left).

I really wish people would internalize an elemental fact: If you are going to base a large part of your self-worth on the proposition that you are smarter than your political opponents, and if every third sentence of your critique is going to reassert that you are smarter than your political opponents, at some point is is incumbent upon you to say something smart, or insightful, or nuanced, or at least novel.
