Dr. Jim Garrow: The Rosanne Conumdrum

The Roseanne Conundrum:

Dr. Jim Garrow

One of the selling points of Roseanne no matter the role she is playing is the tonality of what she says and then the absolute horrors that escape her pie hole. It is her schtick, we know it, we love it – hate it – laugh at it. I am of course referring to those of us with a sense of humor and not those who have a political agenda or a profit motive in mind. What do you do with a tv series that has stratospheric ratings and you are the competition? Manufacture a crisis and then manage the crisis. Pull the suckers down. Nah, you say. Our media mavens could never pull off something like that? Really?

For those of us who do not have our heads in the sand or up our butts we are witnessing the crucifixion of the absurd. One of the last bastions of knee slapping comedy is the comedy that Roseanne Barr has been famous for over the decades. Outlandish, absurd, how could she get away with saying that, comedy. Then she came up against the sour puss Nazis pontifices of morality who control much of the media and definitely turn the ship of CNN this way and that. Socialists whether National (aka Nazi) or other wise are a sour lot waiting like a spider to pounce on any who dare shake the web. You dare not laugh at them or their compatriots who run organizations funded partly by government grant and then the rest with a dime or two of Georgy Porgy Pudding and Pie Soros.

The last bastion of battering with outrageous comedy has been brought down, temporarily at least, by the Laughtists – that new fangled arbiter of free speech and sad to say we are the lesser for it. Amos and Andy would be rolling in their graves if they could see what the modern day vaudevillians are doing and paying a heavy price for.
