  1. In the past few years there have been multiple television commercials that seem biased against white men and boys. Maybe race mixing can be good and healthy. I'm open to that possibility. And at the same time I'm concerned that white people in America might be headed toward extinction via race mixing and large amounts of non-white immigration and television commercials that might be biased against white men and boys. The extinction of white people seems like an actual possibility (although to be honest I'm not the most educated person.) I understand horrible things have been done by people who happened to be white, or rather the ego inside of people who happened to be white. Race mixing can be understandable. And at the same time I still think it might be good if white people don't go extinct soon. White people might have good qualities that are worth preserving. And I think white people are capable (and already in the process) of healing/transforming/advancing to a higher stage. This comment is intended to encourage discussion and free thinking.

  2. You know who would've done this better? Carlos Mencia, because he's good at stealing other people's jokes and making the audience laugh.

  3. The fact that Huckabee has a problem with BBC shows how corrupted Republicans are when it comes to news consumption. The role of news isn't to be exciting, it's to deliver factual information.

  4. I was so happy to find him this morning. I don´t know if he would be delighted, but his name Oswald….maybe mean "ausm Wald" which would be German for "from the Wood"….anyway, I like this guy 😉

  5. If I were to go into standup comedy, I'd be a conservative comic. The bar for it is so low, a minimal amount of effort would guarantee success.

  6. If he thought BBC was "biased", good thing he can't speak Norwegian. LOL. How the hell does the Republican party keep electing children?

  7. Not so bad. It's awkward b/c of the twitter character limits, so reading it verbatim as standup is stilted, not Huckabee's fault,  but for partisan humor "Biased Boring Crap" is sharp enough.

  8. Literally the only funny thing about this was Oswalts "akwardness" lol. His delivery was funnier than the jokes.

  9. Jimmy Kimmel, started The man show!! Women bouncing on trampoline jiggiling their boobs! And he talks about Trump! and Huckabee!! REALLY?????????????????????
