Also, notice that although political humor does often get posted it's the responses to those posts that turn humor into politics. For some reason, specific posters don't want to just move on - they need to comment on the politics that they don't agree with within the humor. Virtually all the responses are by liberals and primarily posters who do not contribute humor, at all.

I strongly disagree with the above statement.

For example, a "joke" posted by you recently (What's for dinner?)

http://boards.fool.com/whats-for-dinner-30309657.aspx

He noticed with alarm that a liberal politician's brain sells for $375.00 a pound.

It would have simply killed you to leave this joke in the original form that it's always been posted in (we can all agree this isn't the first time we've seen this, right?), where it's simply a politician.

Nope, we HAD to leave in the "liberal." Or put it in.

So no, it's not just the responses.
