George Carlin is what Michael Moore will be like in five or ten years.
Other than the two Bill & Ted's flicks, I've never cared much for this foul mouthed curmudgeon.His real old stuff was actually REALLY funny...

Is there anywhere left in America where George is welcome?
God, he's a bitter sumbitch.
Have you seen the title of his new book? Something like "When Is Christ Bringing the Pork Chops?" My word, that is extraordinarily bad taste, that title. But then, George professes that he does not care two toots in a cuspador...about anything...except getting gigs where he can spout and make the rest of us feel like fools. Pity. He is, I think, a good man spoiled. But he spoiled himself.
He is very defensive about his belief in UFOs or the strong probability of life from out there. He jumps on God believers and sez there is so much more evidence of UFOs. He is rather arrogant when spouting his beliefs.
He did a good job of narating some Thomas the Tank Engine videos.
Is that where he invented the "Hippy-Dippy Weatherman"? He was pretty button-down back then.
he does it for the money ... and so people will talk about him
What an interesting tidbit! Thanks.
Compared to Ringo Starr, he sucked as Mr Conductor
.....and I ain't payin'. So long sukas. Don't let the door hit you 2 in your scrawny & fat arses.
Between his heart attack and his poor wife's death, he's become pretty bitter. Yes, he's a public figure and puts himself out there for comment. But let's also remember him in our prayers.
Thirty years ago, "some people" were idiots.
Fifteen years ago, lots of people became idiots.
Today, everyone but George is an idiot.
He's pleased that he stayed so smart all these years and everyone else became so damn stupid.
It won't be long before all he has to curse at are the "stupid people" changing his diapers for him in the nursing home. And none of them will care what he says.
I was not aware of that. He has indeed turned bitter and unfunny. (And speaking about people traveling for "hundreds of thousands of miles" as lacking in "intellect" is highly ironic.)
But you have more compassion than I do. Glad you posted.
Strangely, though, Carlin isn't ready to leave town yet: He's jumping to the Stardust in February after a falling out with the MGM Grand.
Carlin, at 67, is no more going to abandon playing Vegas than he is going to stop cursing in his act because they both bring him lots of money, which is probably one of few things aging, bitter men like George Carlin - when they realize that their lives have been basically empty - cling to. Pathetic.
Carlin's obvious belief that he is smarter than everyone else in the room also gets old, fast. He's living on his past fame and celebrity and the fact that he can still curse and swear as well as any rapper while pretending intellectual prowess by mocking everything and everyone. How trite.
If anyone still wants to pay good money to watch this old doper call you names: be our guest....but don't complain about it and don't believe much of what Carlin says, either. He's not leaving Las Vegas anytime soon.
Say, you are a good sport, aren't you?
