I've always refrained from mixing comedy and politics. Some comedians can blend that cocktail. Not me. I always find that even if a political joke is hilarious, you run the risk of upsetting half the crowd. And I felt that way twenty years ago, well before the current “Us vs. “Them” dynamic that permeates American communication. You cannot tell an “us” from a “them” on sight. Just talking to your neighbor, your florist, your butcher (do you have a butcher?) has become "landmine hopscotch". One false assumption about NAFTA with your barber could have dire cosmetic consequences.
