when I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely

There’s a thought provoking, rainy-day piece over at the New Statesman. It observes that comedy is inherently left-wing and the left is doomed.

“...Chris Rock maintained that stand-up comedy should always be punching upwards. 
It’s a heroic little struggle.”

“You can’t be a right-wing clown without some character caveat, some vulnerability, some obvious flaw.”

“You’re on the right. You’ve already won. 
You have no tragedy. You’re punching down.”
