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.

(Just my opinion, of course. Your mileage may vary. You have the right to be wrong.)
He's not all that liberal. His books are filled with Anti-PC rants that would make some liberals' heads spin.

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.
