So generally, I think Chris Rock is kind of an asshole. I generally don’t think he’s all that funny, and I generally don’t think that he makes a whole lot of sense when he opens his mouth, because most of his schtick is jokes about race and ethnicity, and come on. I think that there’s much, much funnier stuff—especially when it comes to the state of politics in 2012—to focus on than … well, than all that.
That being said, I think this video is kind of smirk-inducing. Yeah, I know I said that Chris Rock generally isn’t funny, and I think it’s more the delivery of the lines than anything else in this particular skit that made me chuckle, because if we can’t laugh at politics (and at the sad state of what people consider “comedy”), then what can we laugh at, I ask you?
