The Politics of Laughter


In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, comedian Patton Oswalt took to social media.  In a post that would soon go viral,  Oswalt was able to give some perspective to the hopelessness that this sort of mayhem has the potential to manifest. [The Atlantic]

Earlier this week Steven Colbert riffed on the ridiculous collaboration between country music star, Brad Paisley and rapper LL Cool J entitled “Accidental Racist.”  Colbert is joined by Broadway actor Alan Cumming to perform their new song, “Oopsy Daisy Homophobe”…  hilarity ensued.  [Colbert Report]
