Steve’s latest was pretty damn funny, especially his Ted Cruz reporting. (The sad thing is that Cruz — one of the biggest liars in history, and such a slime ball that he is hated by his own party — pales in comparison to Agent Orange, and been virtually ignored by the media.)

I think we are all afflicted by a form of the Dennis Miller ratio (old, white, male, educated, absurdist, progressive). My son — 32, with a degree in one of those hard majors where they had labs and so much work it’s very difficult to graduate in four years even when you stay sober — had a lot of trouble warming up to my NBA hot take on the Hack-a-Shaq. But he did laugh at “Sinking the Bismack.”

Think of how small a data point that represents in our population: under 40, college educated, tech geek, likes sports enough to understand the Hack-a-Shaq, and knows about WWI battleships. He’s half way to being a comedy unicorn.
