Is It Only Funny To Conservatives When Democrats Are Targets?
Golf analyst David Feherty (r), in Dallas’ D magazine, told a joke in questionable taste.
“If you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Osama Bin Laden, there’s a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and Bin Laden would be strangled to death.”
Feherty was writing, glowingly, about his new neighbor, Bush43, and how the military loves him even if Democrats don’t. Feherty apologized to Reid and Pelosi for his joke.
“This passage was a metaphor meant to describe how American troops felt about our 43rd president,” Feherty said. “In retrospect, it was inappropriate and unacceptable, and has clearly insulted Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid, and for that, I apologize. As for our troops, they know I will continue to do as much as I can for them both at home and abroad.”
But I didn’t hear any conservatives complaining about a joke where Nancy Pelosi takes two bullets. Their sensitive ears get irritated only when one of their own is the subject of comedic barbs. I’m sure that Feherty doesn’t want Nancy Pelosi to be shot, just as I’m positive Wanda Sykes doesn’t want Rush Limbaugh to experience kidney failure. Now, can we all just laugh it off?
