Mel Brooks is right: Political correctness will be the death of comedy. But it’s not the only thing that is lethal to the human need for laughter. Liberalism also poses a grave risk to the future of humor.

When liberals try to be funny, they end up sounding bitter and oftentimes obscene, which other libs go ape for. An example was Stephen Colbert’s observation that “the only thing” the president’s “mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*ck holster.” The live audience at the Ed Sullivan Theater went wild.

Now another wit has sounded off. He is Limmy, whose actual name is Brian Limond, and he tweeted this howler earlier today to his 329,000 followers on Twitter:

But this time no one was laughing. One Twitter user scolded:

But he wasn’t done, as today’s tweet attests. At least this time, the thumbs downs were more prevalent than the likes. Here are several reactions:

What makes this all so much more galling is the kid glove treatment the Left accorded Barack Obama when he was president. Even the slightest suggestion that the man was anything less than a god was met with accusations of racism or worse.
