Carlin would be asking for a beatdown if he tries to go one on one against Ann, it could be pretty funny. There was another post on getting tickets if you are lucky enough to be in the area:

Leno is a first class liberal craphead I stopped watching a year ago, This sounds like a set-up to me. Dont cut Carlin short ,he is liberal but he isnt a dummy, and he believes his own crap.

Coulter, the acid-tongued conservative with a new book out, and Carlin, the quick-witted, antiestablishment comedian...

There you go. Acid-tongue vs. quick-wit. Anybody knows that conservatives are knee jerk, hate filled, and nearly stuporous. While the other side has heart, are the only intelligent ones, and wise.

I heard Ann on Rusty Humphreys last night and she said she was not appearing with Carlin because for their was no point in her debating a professional comedian.

She said something like that would be like pissing in the wind, but I cant be sure that was her exact metaphor because the radio connection was deteriorating.

Carlin's a little long in the tooth by now, and P'd off at EVERYTHING!! He has a hard time even blinking his eyes.
Twenty years ago it would've been interesting. He'll probably embarrass himself.

You are entirely correct!

"Carlin, the quick-witted, antiestablishment comedian."

Excuse me? In what way in the last ten years has he shown himself to be quick-witted? He was always overrated by the leftist media establishment he was a part of, just as clods like Lenny Bruce were. Antiestablishment? Right--- and I suppose Margaret Cho is brave and funny too.

Ann's only problem is that Leno's audiences have been getting more and more filled with rabid leftists a la Bill Mahr's show, although it's not nearly as bad as Mahr's yet. It can be hard to come off well if the crowd claps at everything Leno and Carlin say and hisses at her, regardless of the fact that she'll be making the only coherent points.

Be more fun to watch Carlin and Maher together. Seeing who is angrier, more hatefilled, and more anti-American.

That had to be one of the easiest shows Johnny ever did. After the monologue, he couldn't get a word in edgewise! IIRC, he even gave up his chair behind the desk to her.

IMO, she's taking unecessary risks by appearing on that show with Carlin as co-guest.

I've seen Carlin's routine(s) on HBO. He's a disgusting hate-filled liberal.

You know Carlin will be loaded for bear. I hope Ann is too.

Leno's show is Maher's squared as to the liberal slant, including the audience in the peanut gallery.

There are only two reasons to go on a show like this, to defend your POV, or sell books. Her book is number one, and her POV will not be allowed to come through. George Carlin would complain about a stint as the lone male, in the Kit Kat Club with a bottle of Viagra, and a case of condoms. He would spend most of the night hating his age and Bush, then the rest of the time railing against pesticides that caused his dysfunction.

So big brave Coulter should stick to conservative shows and shows where she's only facing no-talent talking heads? Carlin could give her a fight, so she avoids it. Where is the courage in that.

I've seen Carlin's routine(s) on HBO. He's a disgusting hate-filled liberal.

And on that side Coulter is a disgusting hate-filled conservative. They have that in common, so a debate between those two would be a site to see. If I were Leno, I'd cancel everything including the monologue, set two chairs in a boxing ring, and let those two have the entire hour.

Leno's show is Maher's squared as to the liberal slant, including the audience in the peanut gallery.

Mahr is an amature compared to Carlin. Coulter would clean his clock.

Ann will win.

It all depends on who's scoring the match (if there is one). Liberals will give Carlin points for a misinformed bon mot, while scoring Ann off for quoting facts (because we all know she's mean-spirited and horrid /sarcasm).

There is a third reason. Showing you're not afraid to defend yourself against those who hold their beliefs as strongly as you hold yours. Coulter doesn't want to defend her point of view. She wants to go on conservative talk shows with fawning hosts so she can spout her point of view without fear of contradiction. And she wants to go on puff-pieces like The Today Show so she can smack Lauer around and hawk her book. There is no hardship involved with that, no chance of failure or embarassment. Coulter is taking the easy road.

He would spend most of the night hating his age and Bush, then the rest of the time railing against pesticides that caused his dysfunction.

No, I think Coulter vs Carlin would be a pretty good show. Pity she won't do it.

It would be embarrassing for her. The audience is there to laugh. Carlin will score more on the laugh meter (for the typical Leno crowd), therefore, he will win. Coulter is probably well aware of this and chooses not to subject herself to it, any more than Carlin would dare go on a forum where he's scored on his grasp on reality.

he didn't write this either. i didn't think so.


Subject: Bad American by George Carlin

Well....make your own judgment!

I Am Your Worst Nightmare. I am a BAD American.

I am George Carlin.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some midlevel governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts squirting out babies.

I'm not in touch with my feelings and I like it that way, damn it!

I believe no one ever died because of something Ozzy Osbourne, Ice-T or Marilyn Manson sang.

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer.

I believe it's called the Boy Scouts for a reason.

I don't think being a minority makes you noble or victimized.

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you'd better do it in English.

I don't use the excuse "it's for the children" as a shield for unpopular opinions or actions.

I think fireworks should be legal on the 4th of July.

I think that being a student doesn't give you any more enlightenment than working at Blockbuster. In fact, if your parents are footing the bill to put your pansy ass through 4-7 years of college, you haven't begun to be enlightened.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God or gods, just leave the rest of us out of it. This also applies to sexuality.

My heroes are John Wayne, the Simpsons, and whoever canceled Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time arguing about it.

I think global warming is a big lie. Where are all those experts now, when I am freezing my ass through a long winter?

I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I didn't wander forty years in the desert after getting chased out of Egypt, I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you, so shut-the-#$%!-up already.

I want to know which church is it exactly where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches. And where does he get his money. And why is he always part of the problem and not the solution.

I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you're running from them. I also think they have the right to pull your ass over if you are breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I hate those bastards standing in the intersections trying to sell me crap or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause. These people should be targets.

I think if you are in the passing lane, and not passing, your license should be revoked, and you should be forced to ride the bus until you promise to never delay the rest of us again.

I think beef jerky could quite possibly be the perfect food.

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.

I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement.

I think Dr. Seuss was a genius.

I'm neither angry nor disenfranchised, no matter how desperately the mainstream media would like the world to believe otherwise.

I believe if she has her lips on your willie, it is sex, and it is sex for both of you. This even applies when you are President of the United States.

If that makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

If you too are a BAD American please forward this to everyone you know. We need our country back!



Comments: As of this writing (mid-2003), versions of this paean to political incorrectness have been floating around for three years, falsely attributed to George Carlin, Ted Nugent, Andy Rooney, Denis Leary and others. Carlin disavowed it on his Website. A variant ran in Ted Nugent's Adventure Outdoors Magazine in early 2001, but the politically outspoken rock star didn't take credit for it and other versions had already appeared elsewhere on the Internet.

More than one person has laid claim to authorship of the piece, but the likeliest candidate to date was a frequent contributor to FreeRepublic.com under the nickname "Bootyist Monk." The earliest known posting, entitled "I Am a Bad Republican," was dated September 1, 2000.




so let's clear up this rumor

You're wrong. Coulter doesn't want to defend her views? Come on. She wasn't physically attacked by the audience at the Heritage Foundation.

Anyone who's seen Coulter versus the numerous leftists she's debated knows that Carlin is simply a pathetic scare quote "rebel" whose "edginess" comes from questioning whatever leftists think should be questioned. Check out the debates between Ann and Peter Beinart in front left-leaning college crowds if you can still find the video-- she absolutely destroys him. True, Ann shows up on H&C a lot, but she hardly gets puff treatment from Colmes and she's usually on with a leftist to balance her.

The idea that the Today Show does puff pieces when it comes to conservatives shows you don't watch it that much. You know what--- I don't blame you. But the fact is, while Lauer is an annoying quasi-Stalinist with delusions of moderation, he is much better informed than, say, Carlin. Lauer is at about the same level or just below Steffie, Russert and Bob-- in other words, he's a knowledgable, partisan hack, just like they are-- but far above mere Carlin/Andy Rooney level.

"I heard Ann on Rusty Humphreys last night and she said she was not appearing with Carlin because for their was no point in her debating a professional comedian."

- Subsequent posters don't seem to get the point that Anne was making. She uses sarcasm to deflate self important liberal elitists and make them look silly. She has to play off of their pomposity and indignation to score points.
Carlin also uses sarcasm, is not pompous and too cool to show indignation. So their debate would be a dual of, "can you top this" funny one liners and he, being a professional comedian who has tested his delivery of one liners before many audiences, would win such a meeting.
