It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. It’s the last few days before the election and Democrats are running scared, even though Obama claims that they love him and his policies. While such dreams of fancy could provide enough fodder to fill a year’s worth Conservative Comedy Friday’s, as the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change shows us, sometimes less is more.

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Last Friday, White House spokesweasel Josh Earnest announced Barack Obama’s appointment of a new Ebola czar, explaining “what we were looking for is NOT an Ebola expert, but rather an implementation expert – and that’s exactly what Ron Klain is.” Because, you know, the White House has done such a bang up job using non-expert “implementers” to do things…

Industry experts have come up with a variety of explanations as to why the price of crude oil suddenly dropped from “a four month high of $117.95”—with American gasoline prices at “the highest ever level for this time of the year”—to “their lowest in six weeks.” A wide range of reasons are offered: expiring futures contracts; doubts about the pace of global economic recovery; the restart…
