Funny to the Left of Me, Angry to the Right

Heard on NPR a few minutes ago: A guest on the Leonard Lopate Show said that the left just can't manage to be angry, while the right can't seem to generate humor. Maybe I'm missing something. The right has Chris Buckley, P. J. O'Rourke, Jonah Goldberg, David Kahane, Glenn Beck, and so on. Who does the left have? A bunch of guys and gals who fall over laughing whenever someone mentions Bu$hitler.

And the left doesn't do angry? The only thing the left does better than angry is pompous, condescending self-righteousness. (The anger comes when you put it like that.)
