Republican humor at it's finest

Earlier it was mentioned that Eugene Scalia and Phil Alito were both at Gibson Dunn. I don't think Alito is there anymore however read these musings. Is there any wonder why there are no conservative funny people. this is pathetic.

Phil Alito is a rising 3L at Duke Law School (i.e., a member of the class of 2012). He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia — after transferring from Colgate, where he wrote funny stuff for The Forum, “a non-partisan publication that seeks to encourage and facilitate the discussion of contemporary legal, political and social issues.” Check out his editor’s bio:

First, God made the heavens and earth. Then came Arby’s, followed shortly by Carl Jr. and other inferior brands of fast food. Fast foward. Homer’s epics, Texas was created, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier, died at the Alamo, King Kong attacked Manhattan, and then, in a completely reactionary move, I was conceived.
I was born 9 months and 2 weeks later by a midwife/wolf named Janie Jean, who would prove very influential during my formative years. Shortly after, I became interested in politics and got involved with Gary Condit (not like that). I served as a parking aide to Nancy Pelosi (I won’t even start on her) but was fired when Barbara Boxer came onto me. Eventually, I decided that my teeth needed to be cleaned, so I came to Colgate with a band of gypsies (who I have declared war on and will one day destroy). I decided to join “The Forum” to make friends but obviously that hasn’t worked out. So, soon I will probably find a cow at a nearby farm and ride my way to glory in either LA or at the Calgary Rodeos.

Alas, Phil Alito’s humorous musings have been scrubbed from the publication’s website.

1. All that stands between Republican comics and success is humor

they got no sense of humor, nor any real concept of what humor is.
Kicking people when they are down is their idea of humor, yet no on else thinks so.

2. Not even worthy of being called 'frat boy' humor.

Just not funny.

3. FAIL!


Conservatives should leave art, playing music and comedy for someone else, because they just are not good at it. This is another example.

6. As a proud Colgate alum I'm delighted beyond

words that this asshole left Colgate to go to UVA. He seems to fit in much better there.
