      Don’t have the quote, but Joel went a bit further. He said the Republican’s son was repressed and unhappy whereas the Democrat’s was happy and well-adjusted. Good on him to add the need to let people be free and open to be how they were born to be.

      It was not a malicious joke that was directed at gays, or where gays
      were the butt end of the joke. The Republicans were.

      That was one of his good ones. Some of his jokes fell flat but I think it was more the audience and not him. I actually thought the President had the funniest bits of the night.

      Michelle Obama was giving Greek Goddess Fabulousness in that off the shoulder Marchesa gown!!! WERK FLOTUS!!!

      It was a little more nuanced:

      “I also host a show called “The Soup,” which is on the E Network. (Cheers, applause.) Thank you. To Republicans in attendance, E is the channel that your deeply closeted gay son likes to watch. (Laughter.) Democrats, it’s the same channel that your happy, openly gay son likes to watch. (Laughter.) E is also home to the Kardashians, who, believe it or not, are Republicans. And I know that, because they’re always trying to screw black people. (Groans.) Yep. Now just the men. OK. (Laughter.)”

      Really I should have said “pointed” not “nuanced” just lazy writing.
