Growing Group of Comedians Veer Right (Catherine Donaldson-Evans, September 01, 2004, Fox News)

Though a lot of comics and entertainers have lately been taking potshots at the president and the war he waged in Iraq, a number of right-leaning, conservative comedians have found their voices and started talking back.

A group of conservative comics billing themselves as The Right Stuff have been traveling around the country and are in New York this week to get laughs out of Republican delegates at the convention.

Another of the new breed is Brad Stine, a politically conservative Christian who weaves both elements of his value system into his act. [...]

The targets of his jokes are the cast of characters you might expect: atheists, animal rights activists, the politically correct, "fanatical left-leaners," gun control advocates, divorcees and, yes, France — but Stine means no personal harm, he says.

"I never attack people — I attack ideas," Stine said. "We're all in this together. We have to be able to make fun of each other and ourselves. There is humor in differences."

That the Left does not think it's funny to make fuin of ourselves and others in large part explains why all humor is conservative.
