Jase Bolger: In our heart of hearts, we know we're funny

by: Eric B.

Fri Jun 06, 2014 at 17:21:34 PM EDT

Jase Bolger apologized for that stiflingly unfunny joke three members of the Republican caucus told yesterday with fashion magazines. As you can imagine from a guy whose apology for tring to rig an election was mostly just saying that Democrats forced him to do it, what he's really saying is that if you didn't find their wise crack clever it's because there's something wrong with you.

"Regardless of who you are, you have probably made a joke you intended to be funny but that turned out not to be. This issue is not reflective of the Michigan House of Representatives, the Republican Party, nor the three legislators in the picture. What they meant to be a joke wasn't funny to some and I apologize to those who may have been offended. '''

I'd like to know who exactly thought it was funny, because even when you get past the fact that it was offensive it simply lacked any comedic element to it whatsoever.

If Bolger really cared about sexism, he would've fired Ari Adler by now (nt)

I did find it a bit funny
But I was laughing at them, not with them.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

Every time Bolger
is in the news for any reason Democrats should be reminding voters about his attempt at electoral fraud. We need to take a lesson from Republicans, who would never allow anyone to forget it if a Dem had done something this brazen.

Why do we always let these clowns off the hook?

There's a very simple way to do that
In this case, he's saying that if you were offended by the joke, it was mostly your fault. It's the same basic thing he said about when he said it was the fault of Democrats when he tried to rig Roy Schmidt's election.
