leaders from the satire industry are to meet for an emergency
summit next week following the end of the Bush-Cheney era,
only days following the inauguration of the new US president
are growing that the end of the Bush-Cheney era will lead
to one of the worst political comedy depressions in living
plans for Comedy Central and The Daily Show to pump satire
into the market are being considered to avoid the satire
distraught uninspired satirist told this website:
though Obama sort of fluffed his lines a little bit during
the inauguration, I still just can't think of anything
funny to write about him. That might change, but at the
moment this has all the signs that this is going to be
the worst satirical depression we have seen since the
great satirical depression of the 1930s. And that was
only saved by comedy geniuses Laurel and Hardy."
of criticising the inauguration, one satirist pointed out
that the only thing he thought was funny was the sight of
former vice president Dick Cheney in a wheelchair. Even
the poet failed to deliver any belly laughs.
of Laughter at the University of Mirth, Helsinki, mused:
the history of satire is written, 2000-2008 will go down
as a great satirical golden age with George Bush and Dick
Cheney at times literally writing the Daily Show themselves.
Now it looks like we face a satirical bust not seen in
the last 80 years or more - some say this is as bad as
the 1930s in the USA, but I think this is worse even than
following the Russian Revolution in 1917."
