Why I don't like political comedians

Interesting (and rambling) discussion, mostly relating to political comedy, going on in the comments of yesterday's post: Is crowd work a crutch?

Jimmy Dore showed up to provide some thoughtful commentary. (Sample: "I think we do our profession a disservice when we forget that comedians have a powerful and important role to play in shaping how we think about society and culture.")

In response, I offer up a more detailed explanation of why it is that I don't like political comedians.

(Note: I moved comments here over to the other thread so they're all in one place.)
