We went to the Second City comedy club last night. There were political jokes, as always. And they cut deeper into the elephants than the donkeys, as always. But there was vocal pushback from some members of the audience.
One of the performers shot back, "If you're booing now, hold onto your f---ing hats!"
But in decades of going to Second City, I have never heard Republican pushback before. Never. This is Chicago, of course.
I took it as a startling sign
that donkey chances are in decline.
