  • Rolling Across the Aisle Laughing: An Epilogue

    The election is over and we either did it or didn't do it, depending on what you wanted done. But now we have to do it more. Do what? Whatever it takes. God bless America. Let the healing begin.

    Democrats: With President Obama's win, you have the challenging job of fixing the economy, but for realsies this time. And no more whining. It's time to get to work. That's the stuff people get paid to do. No, not being unemployed. The opposite of that. That's a joke, Democrats.

    Republicans: You, on the other hand, have been working way too hard to keep Democrats from working. You've been too serious. Take the year off and go find yourselves, guys. Backpack through Europe. Tell France the Democrats say hi and they can't wait for them to see what they're gonna to do to this place. That's a joke, Republicans.

    The country may be divided like two pieces of bread right now, but we still have the cheese that holds the bread together, and that cheese is a sense of humor. In the spirit of non-partisan laughter, I give you the final head-to-head liberal-vs.-conservative Twitter battle after the jump…

  • Rolling Across the Aisle, Week 9

    Welcome to week 9 of RAAL, the only place on the internet where your opinion actually matters. In last week's election, we put a liberal joke up against a conservative joke, and by a clear margin, the liberal joke won.  Part of the reason was because one person voted twice. Some of you may think that's fraudulent, but I don't know how to count or what fraudulent means. Congrats to Laet Oliveira, AKA @LaetPO!

    As this election season winds down, both Democrats and Republicans are getting more serious. But not here. This is a safe place where you can still laugh at yourself and your opponent. Take a look at the jokes below and vote as often as you like in the comments section.

  • Rolling Across the Aisle, Week 8

    It's week 8 of Rolling Across the Aisle Laughing. We only have a couple more weeks until the election. Are you ready to vote? Have you even registered? If not, don't worry. You can just post your political opinions all over Facebook. That counts too.

    Last week's toe-to-toe slugfest ended up being a draw. Conan O'Brien got one vote because he is Coco, and the other got one vote because it was written by a human with mammary glands. Guys, I think we can do better. This week I've chosen a couple of non-celebrities without boobs in the hopes it will make you more objective and less objectifying…

  • Rolling Across the Aisle Laughing, Week 6

    Week 6 of Rolling Across the Aisle Laughing is going to be a hoot. Last week, I think Frank Conniff won! The only reason I'm unsure is because some voters said it wasn't fair to use Dennis Miller because people hate him. Others said it isn't fair for people choose one person's joke over another's based on personal preference. I don't think it's fair that everyone with a computer has a keyboard, but that's life. This country isn't about apologies or fairness. It's about laughing at ourselves and our opponents equally or not at all.

    Here are this week's contenders. Vote in the comments section for the one you like best.

    By the way, if you come across a great partisan joke next week, feel free to email the link to johnsonlisabeth@gmail.com.
