Carlin used to be funny. Now, he's just another ultra-liberal comic has-been.

Maybe I grew up and he didn't. Anyway, something changed since the glory days of AM & FM and Class Clown. He must be the one who changed because I still think those old albums are hilarious.

He's not all that liberal. His books are filled with Anti-PC rants that would make some liberals' heads spin.

Carlin used to be funny.

I think it was 1970-ish that he made his last funny comment.

I don't think Carlin is a liberal as much as he is an anarchist. He just hates authority in all its forms. Therefore, he's not funny any more. Humor needs a target, and when EVERYTHING is a target, well, it just loses some of its punch, no?

George Carlin is a bitterly disillusioned and deeply unhappy man. It shows in his comedy act, and is extremely unattractive. Some people find him funny, I find him to be demented.
