Get the sense that @jimmykimmel's line of reasoning is something like: "I'm on X side, I'm *smart*, ergo X side must be the smart side (while ignoring all the idiotic things members of X support, do and say).

Because reading bad jokes from a cue card, then talking to another ninny celebrity about their book or movie, is so tough and intellectually demanding.
