Seeing threads about Bill Maher, John Stewart, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter,etc. Seems like we like our politics served up by comedians (i.e., bull**** artists).

Who is funniest?

Bring it.

John Stewart, definitely.
I don't usually laugh at Bill Maher, but he hits the nail on the head a lot.
I can't stand Rush Limbaugh's politics, but he's interesting to listen to (sometimes)
Sean Hannity is a halfwit; Ann Coulter simply isn't worth reading or listening to.

John Stewart for sure. I also like Lewis Black. Maher would be a third choice.

Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, etc, sadly aren't comedians and mean what they say.

Default Who's funnier?

I don't find any of them funny, to me it's a smart azz humor and I don't enjoy it.
Of course thats just me

Lewis Black is the funniest and my favorite because of his delivery style. He also makes you think the most. The bit on Trump was so far out of field, but after watching it you do wish you had a president like that (but not him) He also isn't completely liberal he is very moderate.

Bill makes the most sense from a practical point of view
John does what every good Jersey boy does, he wants to help the people

Rush is just annoying, old, tired, and worn out
Ann is clueless with a nasal voice that makes me want to vomit.
Beck and Hannity aren't worth my time.

I would rather watch Lewis, Bill or John than the news any day. This country is so borked, so dumb, so ignorant of its past so manipulated that if I watch any more news I would cry.

"Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke."

"I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts."

"It's easy being a humorist when you've got the whole government working for you."

Will Rogers
