Who is Sarah Ball and why is she saying awful things about Emo Phillips? And, why is she not saying awful things about Robin Williams? I.E., if she is going to bash those twelve, she ought also be brave enough, and have a critical eye, sufficient, to take on sacred cow comedians like Williams and George Carlin.

Okay, first, let's run down the twelve she does go after:

1) Larry the Cable Guy" is funny to people who think Larry the Cable Guy is funny. And, he's likable, likable, likable. That's how he Git(s) Er Done.

2) Carlos Mencia: Ms. Ball got this one right. (If Carlos Mencia didn't steal jokes he'd be the unfunny-ist comedian since" Carlos Mencia.)

3) Howie Mandel is not doing stand-up when he's hosting Deal or No Deal -- he's a game show host. To say that he is not funny based on the venue? Howie Long is retired from the NFL and is now a studio analyst with FOX Sports. Does that mean he currently sucks as a defensive end?

4) Dane Cook: The super finger won't get Dane into the Hook Hall of Fame alongside, "I don't get no respect" and "take my wife, please," but it will get votes -- and, Rodney and Henny never had a Garden full of fans doing it with him unison.
