Welcome to week 2 of RAAL (Rolling Across the Aisle Laughing)! Last week we pitted a conservative joke against a liberal one and asked you, our readers, to vote for the best one. Even though we didn't pass any new voter ID laws or rezone our comments section, turnout was dismal. With one vote, the winner was the conservative joke, written by @AlinskyDefeater. Congratulations!
This week we have another round for you to judge, and another plea to vote with your sense of humor, not your sense of partisan obligation. YES WE CAN laugh at ourselves.
IN THE LEFT CORNER
Rush Limbaugh loved Mitt Romney's birther joke. That's like John Wayne Gacy raving about one of your clown paintings.

IN THE RIGHT CORNER
Mitt added, "President Obama and I have our differences – I try to avoid caffeine, don't drink much soda, stay away from coke, you know."
