First a disclaimer: the Top Ten Comedic News Stories of 2012 should not under any circumstances be confused with the Top Ten Legitimate News Stories of 2012. They are as different as red satin cummerbunds and Liar's Dice. Duck liver and Spanish moss.

So funny! The top 3 are those that won the attention of so many of our best and most clever political humorists.

3. Democratic National Convention. Specifically Bill Clinton laying out the precise reasons why America should re- elect as President… Bill Clinton.

2. Republican National Convention. Specifically Clint Eastwood upstaging the nominee’s acceptance speech by getting into an argument with an empty chair. Which he proceeded to lose. Probably upset him so badly he rushed back to the hotel room where he got into a squabble with his armoire.

***1. Mitt Romney. All the charisma of a plastic picnic fork with three of the tines snapped off. May have run the worst campaign ever. And that includes New Coke, McCain/Palin and France in 39.

Sadly number one is almost to true to be funny.

Great memories. Even before the Big Bird tragedy, I knew Romney was a no-go when I saw the footage of him turning his nose up at, criticizing as unhealthy and then flat refusing a donut offered to him at one of his stops! HUGE MISTAKE! How that loser even got as far as he did, is beyond me!

Well Mittens was just pure comedy, I remember trying to explain Mittens policies to a small child with a glove puppet, the child complained that the sock puppet was too similar to Mittens to be a credible satire after seeing him on TV. The thing is he just screams of total loser, which brings why the Republicans actually wanted him to be president was the bottom of the barrel scraped already, apparently not as they dragged this deeply uncharismatic, untalented and dysfunctional man out of whatever hole in the ground to be President. Any dog in the street could tell that he was a mindless jerk, but dogs lacking the communications skills tend not to be heard by the average Republican as the Tea Baggers danced to the tune of Ron Paul who preached Low taxes, no government, anal probing for everyone and a spot of closet racism in that he really hates people from Narnia. The rank and file Republicans fell in line until even in the dim recesses of their minds they realized that Mittens was a total tosser and no amount of rubbing his magic underwear could get rid of the impression her was a skid mark of a man. Yeah and his wife was crap at the Olympics and Paul Ryan kept on being mistaken for Eddie Munster.
