64. As with all comedy, laugh, or change the channel.

All comics have to find their niche and serve up the funny knowing they won't reach all demographics. They live dangerously, but they make us look at ourselves and help keep perspective.

When comics make fun of women, I laugh along when it's a universal truth or frustration about how women act. I draw the line at insulting women for their appearance. But that's my line. Everyone finds theirs and gets to decide when to move on.

My take on her sheetcake was that he's making everyone crazy. That's all. She was mirroring my insane feeling in my head when I turn on the TV and someone says "President trump." I could be driven to eating sheetcake. I get it. She's never been one to tell anyone what to do. Others get into the meat of the policy. She just made fun of Palin's stupidity, not her policy.
