Indeed, the morbid unintentional satire of the RNC may mean that you don't require more cheering up. GOP delegates sure had fun, doing what reactionaries do: laughing at the wrong place, and at the wrong people, cumming in their pants over the porn fantasy of infinite wealth. The Democrats, up next week, are almost as bad, of course. While both corporate capitalist parties pretend to acknowledge their (our) presumed desire for a social democracy, the Dems at least struggle just a little with how that's contradicted by the lack of an economic democracy. The Republicans don't even see the problem, or just don't give a shit.
But as regards the theater and culture of the Reaganoids' worldview, their showbiz problem is that they don't get the very basics of funny. Making fun of sick, poor, disenfranchised and victimized Americans ain't funny.
Teasing scientists, women, ethnic minorities? Nope. Responding to Code Pink activists, anti-war protesters, Occupiers and Iraq War combat veterans by screaming “USA, USA!” like brownshirts? Not so high-larious, but these folks seem to have missed Lenny Bruce, Dick Gregory and Sarah Silverman (with whom I am deeply in love!), and I am guessing do not watch Colbert and Stewart and Mahr, no, or read Thomas Frank or Senator Al Franken.
