Introduced as an "equal-opportunity skewerer" by Lodi Mayor Bob Johnson, comedian Will Durst proved the description by making light of politicians, popular culture and even Lodi itself during his 30-minute set at Thursday's Leadership Forum.

The political comedian took the stage wearing a gray suit and white tennis shoes, and quickly quipped that Johnson's name made it sound like he was in the Witness Protection Program.

    I have never met someone who so often draws conclusions that have nothing to do with my posts...
    I was not defining the parameters for "you". I was drawing the parameters for "me". in reference to when we are cool... and when we are not... you of course will write what you want... that is not in my control and I am glad it is not.

    Darrell: And there is the difference between us. I will not define the parameters for anyone in what they think, say, do or write here. I always have the choice to either converse, debate, argue, laugh with/at or ignore people here. That choice is up to every individual. If you do not want to converse with me then that's your choice, but I will not make sure to fall within your parameters so as to be "cool" with you. I was being nice when I asked if we were "cool". I will not change my views and opinions, or the way in which I deliver those views and opinions here, so as to be "cool" with you. Maybe you'll just have to ignore me if you can't deal with the conversation/debate with me. Or you can make the very childish choice to be like Jerome and decide not to address me here, but still post rude and nasty comments about me. Of course it's your decision.

    Anyway...

    Happy 4th Everyone!!!!

    Like I said before... Im "cool" with all bloggers. I am never "cool" with posts that ridicules people's intelligence

    So its your move... make posts that agree/disagree with people's ideas, thoughts, positions as well as make life's observations and we are "cool"... if you make fun of people's intelligence or make them appear to be kooky... then we are not cool. In fact, I consider people like this to be an enemy to humanity.

    K stated...Darrell: What you don't seem to understand is that a comedian can be funny to some and not to others

    No person ( any profession) is funny when they talk/ joke about people that they despise... Dave Letterman for example has never met a conservative that he likes. I have seen him in interviews where he talks about life as he sees it. Some comedians use their profession to lampoon people they do not like.
    If I knew a comedian hated liberals, and made a living enthusiastically embarrassing them through jokes, I would not/think that person funny. For you or anyone to laugh at people like this nauseates me...
    I know I am in the minority on this... I'm just explaining why I think the way I think. I have watched Letterman at least 12 times in my life and can honestly say, I have not cracked a smile once as he performed. To me its like watching a parent discipline their child who enjoys seeing the child suffer as a result... not funny.
    That is one reason I can always appreciate Johnny Carson type comedians as they are comedians without agenda's...

    Darrell: I have tried to encourage you to respectfully debate and converse with me; and for goodness sake a little humor is encouraged as well!!! I then hit my limit and resorted to giving back as much as you dished out. I would appreciate it if you would treat me with the same respect that you expect from me. That also includes respecting my name and not harassing me about it. I also expect you to not take my comments out of context or I will simply do the same to you. I'm no wall flower... you push...I push back. And if I have an opinion about someone like Sarah Palin it doesn't mean I have some deep seeded agenda etc, it simply means that I am posting a completely honest and genuine opinion with facts as I clearly see them.
    So, are we cool? Your move. :-)

    Darrell: What you don't seem to understand is that a comedian can be funny to some and not to others. A comedian can also be funny sometimes and not at other times. It depends on their material that day or on that particular joke/set. Just because I think Letterman is funny it certainly doesn't mean I laugh at everything he says. Hey, I laugh at a lot of comedians. I am absolutely positive that I laugh at your favorite comedians too. And how many of us spend personal time getting to know a comedian we find funny before we decide to laugh at their jokes? Not me. You seem very fortunate to be able to get to know comedians personally before their act.

    K... I knew for sure that you would consider Letterman funny... Since I have never met you and since I am not psychic, I must have an ability to detect the obvious... If one is observant, and has many life experiences and takes the time to see the comedian interact with people when not in a performing situation, many things become obvious... like you and Ms Bobin enjoying Jon Stewart... Id bet my house on that one... oh I must be psychic... (smile)

If something is not true that I type, it is because I made an honest mistake. I have no reason to lie.

    Hey, looks like you're pulling a Palin now. LOL! You may have made a mistake at first, but then you simply double down and back up your mistakes by lying instead of just admitting you were wrong. It says a lot about ones character when he/she cannot admit his/her own mistakes (big or small).

    Trying to save face (and lying) just makes it so no one will trust you and everything you say becomes suspect. Your character is revealed and it’s not in your favor, Darrell. Hopefully you can work on it.

    Oh, and since you insist on giving me a pet name on these blogs (Katrina), does that mean I am supposed to come up with one for you? Oh... let me think about that one for minute! LOL! Maybe I should call you Real Facts?

    This is just too much. LOL! So, Darrell, you sit there and ponder whom the comedian might "respect" before you will consider letting out a giggle at a joke? I've just got to ask... how do you know whom the comedian "respects"? Do you do an interview before the show? Do you research the performer before the act? How do you do it? This ought to be good.

    Ms Bobin stated... Would Mr. Baumbach have enjoyed Durst's routine if he had ONLY bashed the left…
    Ms bobin... I appreciate that question as it has merit. Thank you for asking.
    .
    I love good comedy. When the comedian bashes anyone, left or right, I think it is OK if the comedian does it out of respect for the person being bashed. That is why roasts are funny. Comedians that respect the person being roasted is asked to bash the person which is taken as good natured fun. Don Rickles is famous for that as well as many others. However, when the comedian like Letterman or Durst who openly disrespects and and hates the right... Bashes the right... it is no longer done in humor but in the name of animosity and greed.( money made from the activity)
    To make money at the expense of others when your motivation is negative, it no longer is funny.
    So if any comedian does not respect the “left”, I would not laugh at the jokes they told about the left.

    Apparently, Mr. Baubach stopped reading the article after the Palin and Cheney jokes.

    And since when do YOU get to determine who "lacks character" depending on the type of comedy they enjoy, Mr. Baumbach? Based on most of your comments in this forum, you shouldn't be judging anyone's character but your own.

    Actually, I think that Don Rickles' comedy is tasteless and trashy, but it sure has made him millions over the years.

    I have never understood how anyone could laugh at any comedian when the intent is to make money from activity that hurts others. It is the same reason I do not appreciate your commentary Mr/Ms Lee... you Bash good people like Palin. I do not like Obama at all... but when I say something about him... it is in reference to this ideas, policies and agenda... If you spoke against Palin's positions and ideas, I would have no problem... I have never seen one position of Palin's you disagree with... you focus on her personally.... that is the kind of thing I have “no “ sense of humor of as I think it is vicious.

    You people are too thin skinned. I'm admittedly pretty far the right on my politics. I'm also a big fan of Durst. I've seen the guy at least a half dozen times over the years in Sacramento comedy clubs. The thing with Durst, you have to read the newspaper to get his bits. I personally make fun of liberal thinking all the time. In fact, I can think of no better example of an oxymoron.

    One thing that bothèrs me is how much the city manager appropriated from the "office" fund to Send all the good old boys to this event? And who got free city taxpayer funded tickets to this event that couldn't afford the gigantic $150 fee? Hope this isn't another fleecing of the Lodi taxpayers like the downtown wine tasting that was"forgiven" the $40,000 fee, I'd assume, because they couldn't afford it. I believe Van Ruiten winery was one winery ong others. I'll find that article in the Sentinel and post the link to it later. Stay tuned!

    Ms Lee stated...Yes, Darrell, I love comedy. Why are you so twisted up in knots over a comedian? I think it's just that you do not appreciate comedy.

    Another insincere question Ms Lee... and more insults... That you would enthusiastically enjoy the type of comedy where a person like Durst who hates the right... and bashes them in his comedy, speaks loudly to your lack of character than it does to comedy... I bet you even laugh at Letterman.

    As far as the personalities Doug suggested were comedians or entertainers... and you agreed...he and you insult their heart and soul. Except for Streisand, no others are entertainers by profession. The only reason someone like you would refer to them as entertainers or comedians is to discredit their ideas...
    Its only entertainment... right?

    Doug... when someone has an ax to grind , and they bash people who they hate or have animosity toward “in the name of comedy”, it is not funny. If I bashed unions with jokes for example, it would not be funny. But if a union man who appreciates unions joked and bashed union people, I'm sure it would be funny.

    That is why I cannot watch late night comedians... many hate the right and relentlessly attack and make fun of... they do it in the name of comedy... but because they hate who they make fun of, it is not funny.

    actually Doug.... If I go to a business conference, i GO TO DO BUSINESS.I expect the conference to focus on economic concerns and address points and possibilities that could possibly help in the business world. I find it a waste of time to listen to people like Durst. If I listen to comedy, I do not expect the comedian to hate the people they make fun of. When you watched the Dean Martin Roasts, the people there cared for the people they roasted... that's what made it so fun. This guy does not like conservatives and is not funny in any way... I think your question is insulting.

    Mr. Durst is also in the back pocket of labor unions for whom he has been making radio commercials touting public works projects in the state. Not that public works projects are not needed, I would prefer that the state utilize the tax funds collected in California specifically for public works projects, go to the areas that they were originally intended. Not to the general fund as has been the norm.
    While I can appreciate his ascerbic wit, he tends to extend his most vicious and / or petty comments towards those on the right rather than equally between the right and left.
