    Stewart is funny and Colbert is the kind of comic genius that  is very rare. Olbermann can be funny in an extremely snarky way but the Edward R. Murrow act makes me roll my eyes on occasion. I love Rachel Maddow because she's smart and can explain difficult concepts in a way that makes them understandable. Sadly, she's not funny.

    I know that comedy is very subjective. Some people find Adam Sandler, Mike Myers and Jim Carrey funny even if I don't quite understand what is funny about them. I find Rachel Maddow's "jokes" to be nothing if not cringeworthy only because her delivery screams, "I'm making a joke". Then she laughs at her own joke and I cringe even more. It reminds me of NPR's Brian Lehrer. He will stop an interview dead in its tracks so that he can get his line out whether it's appropriate or not. I'm all for quips but not when I have to be stopped in my tracks before being hit on the head by them.

    Like I said, subjective. However, to me Rachel Maddow is one of those people who is not funny yet thinks they are and you can never convince them otherwise.

    This head movie makes my eyes rain.
