There’s nothing wrong with laughing at your own side, provided the satire is well done. One recent example of the left ribbing Republicans effectively, for me at least, is Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock. But is satire so obvious and unfunny even worth getting upset over? You decide.

Jim Carrey, in a Funny or Die video, plays the frontman of Lonesome Earl and the Clutterbusters (the band played by The Eels) and a God-loving, gun-toting, violence-prone Charlton Heston.

In the video, Carrey riffs off of Heston’s 2000 ‘from my cold dead hands’ NRA convention speech. His audience? A bunch of slaw-jawed Hee Haw yokels (I’m not sure about this, being somewhat of a boor myself, but I believe they represent you and me!) sing about gun owners “profiteering from pain and fear.”

Biting satire, indeed.
