Martin Short's brilliant tribute to the killing of Osama Bin Laden performed on Letterman last night.

That was GREAT, thank you! Love Martin Short!
To the tune of “Candle in the Wind”...
“Bastard in the Sand”
Sounds like something Slings might wanna not-ping!
(Tarded puter on dialup...)
Love him. :)
Martin Short rocked it!!
That is SO violent.
I love it. Thanks for posting.
That will be the last time we see Mr.Short on Letterman.
Now that was awesome! Thanks, loved it.
-We could have shot you anywhere, we shot you in the face
I love that fact. All terrorists should be shot in the face even if they die by other means. No fan of the Italian mob, but I think that's how they do it to disrespect and prevent open casket funerals.
In the wake of 9/11, Dennis Miller made a pretty sharp move to the right. Based on interviews I've heard him do on his radio show, he's pulled his friends Dana Carvey and Martin Short somewhat in that direction as well.
Just sent it out to my email chain!
Hats off to Martin Short! He gets it!
I wish he was in more things.
The only thing I didnt like him in was when he had his own special. Dont know what went wrong there.
I’ve never cared much for Short’s comedy, but this was grand. I note that Obama wasn’t mentioned at all. The seals were front and center.
Really? I've always pegged him as conservative/libertarian in his views and comedy - but unafraid to take-on whoever/whatever is in office / in the news
Based on my personal observations of him on SNL and the few times I caught his HBO show, I think he had some liberal leanings, but did try to assess individual events and people pretty objectively, but there were some times he took some pretty cheap shots at Reagan and conservatives decades back.
I wish he'd come around to the right on the issue of life like he has on a lot of other topics. I've heard him struggle with it a few times on his show. It's as though deep down, he's intelligent enough to know life begins at conception, but there's still something (whether it's a twisted libertarian sense of 'choice', or the opinions of the celebrity circles he moves in) that keeps him from fully dealing with the matter on an intellectual basis.
That just warmed my heart and made my day!
“Martin Short is hilarious.”
I just think of his “Ed Grimley” character and LOL.
Dennis Miller since 9/11: Big fan of Bush’s war on terror, big fan of waterboarding, despises Nancy Pelosi, etc.
Excerpt from one segment on BOR show: “Dennis Miller defended the practice of waterboarding terrorists to save the lives of Americans, calling the technique “heaven-sent.” Miller: “Something that takes somebody who’s willing to strap a bomb on and yet freaks them out to the point where they’ll tell you where the next bomb is by pouring water down their nose and they don’t even die, I think, wow, this is heaven-sent.” He also heaped praise on President Bush for “keeping this country safe in the interim seven years” since the 9/11 attacks.
Miller: “That’s what I admire about him. He’s willing to be hated for the rest of his life to do the right thing. And I just want to look in the camera. This is the last time Ill be on this show when he’s my President and my Commander-in-Chief and say, Thank you, sir. I feel privileged that you were the President during this time in American history.”
He is a very fine fellow, I must say. :-)
Like him in small doses. Sketch comedy, supporting roles.
2 hours of him in anything, is wearing.
"I'm not being defensive! You're the one who's being defensive! Why is always the other person who's being defensive? Have you ever asked yourself that? Why don't you ask yourself that?"
I just think of his Ed Grimley character and LOL.
The Ed Grimley character was his best. I remember an SCTV skit where he was waiting for Christmas. I must’ve seen it 20 times. Also, “What ever Happened to Baby Ed” from SCTV.
It’s called growing up. I had to do it too. The only difference was that I did it during my 19 to 24 years. Maybe if I had much more money and surrounded myself by libtards I might have held on to the age of 30.
His Jiminy Glick character was cute, too. This is a video of Jiminy Glick interviewing Dennis Miller:
(starts at 4:40)
[Better vid at post #14.]
IMHO that’s one of his most underrated characters.
LOL! Very good.
Thanks for the ping.
Do you remember who I am today? ;-p
I can't remember most of it, and am too lazy to search around for a link, but the funniest part was:
Norm McDonald him I like
kd lang a great big . . . star
Of course I remember who you are today! I would have remembered yesterday too, had I saw you, which I didn’t, and certainly not on a disreputable thread about exploding watermelons. Oh my, no.
Here’s the CBS orig. version
LOL WOO HOO!!!!
This takes me back to the 80’s, Yeah, Obama got FACED! Uh hua, FACIAL! LOL
Ah who knew those junior high school memories would come in handy!! LOL
You made Hubby laugh.
I almost missed his laughter because I was laughing to hard myself.
Years ago, Short had a show of his own, IIRC on CBS. It impressed me as a monument to subversive, edgy humor. This was during the Clinton adminstration... One sketch involved the cover-up of a presidential assassination, in which the Administration substituted a lookalike who just happened to be a hermaphrodite, as the audience learned when a thinly-veiled Hillary confronted her “husband” in the shower. Up came the title: “Not quite the president... not quite a first lady.” Thought I’d bust a gut, and the show was canceled immediately thereafter. Two episodes.
Short is fearless.
