From Tina Fey's sharp impression of Sarah Palin on SNL, to Stephen Colbert's mock presidential campaign, to Jon Stewart's continual riling of the GOP on the Daily Show, the most prominent modern satirists emerge from the left. Join Dr. Alison Dagnes for her exploration of the cultural and philosophical differences between conservatives and liberals that causes this comic discrepancy. A Conservative Walks Into a Bar is an in-depth, entertaining, illuminating analysis of the nature of satire itself, trends in media consumption, and the role of money in politics—insights to which you will certainly give a tip of the hat.
