I knew it wasn't him when I got it.
I heard what he said recently about "Governor Bush" (he said he calls him that because it was the last thing he was really elected to.)
My use for Carlin ended 20 years ago
This is pretty good, but I doubt it's from leftist George Carlin. :-)
I seriously doubt this is from George Carlin. He would have been ranting about the US troops in Iraq.
Or declaring there is no God.
This isn't George Carlin, it's Shakespeare.
>>:In the meantime, maybe someone ought to ask Mike Barnicle if he wrote it.
There's a yuk on every page!
(Disgraced former Boston Globe, and later Boston Herald,
columnist/Imus lackey/WTKK talk host was caught lifting
some Carlin-isms in his columns. He said he had never read
the book BRAIN DROPPINGS, from which some had appeared.
Then someone found a clip of the TV show "Chronicle" and
there was Barnicle touting that book he had supposedly
never read, saying there's a "yuk on every page".
If this were Carlin, it would have been funnier; just as angry, maybe, but funnier. Some of the sentiments aren't TOTALLY different from what I'd expect from Carlin, but overall it seems a bit too right-wing for him.
Kind of like that one that is credited to Andy Rooney. No way is this George Carlin. The words Poverty Pimps will never cross his lips.
Mike Barnicle is a looooser.
I don't think this is Gearoge Carlin either. (A man I used to respect, but not anymore)
Goerge Carlin is a bitter, *extremely* anti-American jerk who's intelligence is so vastly eclipsed by his own opinion of his intelligence.
He has become like Bill maher, a guy who has learned how to say stuff that sounds really smart to people who don't know any better. He's taking advantage of people's ignorance.
I base this off his new book which I just read. He's changed from a sharp witted comedian who I used to love to a bitter old man mad at the world. (At least his writing makes it seem so)
There is no way George Carlin would say any of these things. He would come out firmly stating that is is all the governments fault and everyone's lives are entirely the governments responsibility.
"I doubt it's Carlin too. It's probably another fraud email like the "I'm a bad American" email that circulated a few years ago that was incorrectly attributed to him."
I've committed the following to memory from that email:
I believe that the money I make belongs to me and my family, and not some mid-level governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it to crackheads squirting out babies.
I'm sad to hear that it wasn't from Carlin, but that summed up my feelings on that issue pretty well.
Believe me, Carlin did not write this. He'll be crying about this on his website for another five years like he did with the famous one that was going around. LOL!
George Carlin's humor took a huge turn for the worse when his beloved wife died. I believe she was the one that kept his dark side intact. He is/was very bitter about her death. This is what happens when you have no religion to heal your heart.
You are problaby right. It's ironic that he is so hateful towards Christianity yet if he had some fait.. not even Christianity but any faith at all in something bigger than himself, he probably would be more able to put it in perspective.
His new book, When Will Jesus Bring the Porkchops was depressing and sad to read. I knew Carlin's views were not the same as my own on many topics, but I know he is(was) usually really funny, and I am a big boy, I can take a bit of ribbing. I was execting a book full of funny jokes and quick wit.
Not far into the book, though, I realized that I was reading the mean-spirited rantings of an extremely bitter and miserable old man. If he had 2 positive thoughts in a row his brain would go into a seizure. The book reads more like this mans complete and total mental breakdown then a book of jokes. I am not even really religious and even I was offended by his seething hatred for Christians and anyone of faith, or for that matter anything in the world that represents even the smallest bit of decency. His jokes about Christians seem like overkill, and now the seem like really bitter hatred like he has some kind of an ax to grind. We know that he is an athiest, his jokes about it were funny 20 years ago. The facts that he's gone on about it for this long and has ratcheted up the bitterness tells me that there is more to the story, possibly from his childhood at the Chatholic school (specilation of course) or something, because he is really at WAR with any kind of faith whatsoever, and it goes beyond humor in that book. The George Carlin that I was a fan of is long gone.
It's fine to be adge and push the envelope, but if you're gonna do that, you have to make it FUNNY. If it's not funny it comes off like you're just a psycho old man. Bitter bitter bitter, mean and miserable. I put the book down and went outside and let the sun shine on my face and was thankful that I a do not have his worldview.
If this is because of the death of his wife, I truly feel sorry for his loss, it has ruined this man. I hope he can find some peace in some way. What's sad is his own worldview does a lot to prevent that. I hope somehow he starts to feel better.
Andy Rooney is so senile he could not pour pee out of a boot with the directions on the heel.
Thats not very nice. Andy Rooney died a few years back, and just because nobody told him yet, we should show some respect.
Here he is last week, at the Petah Jennings memorial, God rest his soul:
