Skip to comments.Billy Crystal Calls GOP Candidates 'Dark Knight, an American Psycho and a Charismatic
Posted on 02/26/2012 8:01:43 PM PST by Nachum
NewsBusters reported Friday that Oscars host Billy Crystal intended to mock GOP "idiots" during Sunday's awards presentation. Roughly forty-five minutes in, Crystal was true to his word taking a cheap shot at the Republican presidential candidates (video follows with transcript): Billy Crystal: A dark knight, an American psycho, a charismatic crack addict. You'll get to choose one on Super Tuesday. And of course the audience found it hysterical.

Way to be cutting edge Billy. A joke bashing Republicans to a crowd to the left of Stalin. Courageous.
These Washington insider elites are smarmy, laugh at their own jokes but are not funny.
So I’m confused...which is the charismatic crack addict?
Between the 5 (our 4 and their 1) theirs is the only one that I know of that has definitely done drugs and admitted it.
Must be liberal projection again
Too bad they have the “second biggest TV audience” of the year. Too bad some fools are actually influenced by what these comedians say.
It would be better if he had said: The professor and the preacher plus the liberal and the loon.
Ooookay, which is which?
How about the big eared, muslim kissing jackass in the white house who just ruined America's credit rating, tanked the economy, put us in debt and is shrinking our military.....?
What say you Billy on Dumbo's performance so far?
Which is supposed to be which? I mean, it’s only funny if there’s a grain of truth. If there’s a grain of truth, it’s usually evident. But I honestly can’t tell who he thinks is a crack addict. Presumably liberals think all three are psycho...
What funny joke did he make about our sitting president?
Bunch of phoneys. Why aren’t the Occupy protestors there?
Thats why I’d rather gouge my own eyes out than spend hours watching half-wit, self indulgent and pompous celebrities have orgasms about each other’s movies that 7 people in the country have watched. If Billy Crystal and the entire auditorium of celebrity retards got nuked, the world would be a better place.
Just make sure Kim Kardashian was right next to the nuke when it went off.
Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it.
- Barack Hussein Obama
The Oscars? Do they still bother to televise that?
Crystal spoke from personal knowledge of his Hollywood/entertainment friends. He and his friends live in the cesspool of decent humanity. I’ll bet there are many people who get a high by living vicariously with these people and pay for their dress and jewelry.
Isn't that the perfect description of our Dear Leader, Pharaoh Obama?
I'll take the Dark Knight, thank you very much!
And probably most of the people who were there to hear it. Seems to me like only a psycho or somebody high would have made any connection between those words and any of the R candidates. Who the heck did he think he was talking about in a comment that made absolutely no sense to a sober person?
Why arent the Occupy protestors there?
...because according to Billy, occupiers are cool. Said during the show!
I’m an actor out here in Liberal Land and I’d rather watch re-runs of Storage Wars.
Some of the comments on the Oscar thread below are pretty funny: freepers actually mooning over these shallow, self-absorbed, left-coast, libtard ninnies and Billy Crustal’s tired, leftover Catskills schtick.
Billy Crystal: A dark knight, an American psycho, a charismatic crack addict. You’ll get to choose one on Super Tuesday.
That’s dumb, it doesn’t make sense and it isn’t even funny. Poor thing, he’s lost his touch.
Ditto. -Except I prefer the NBA All Star Game and replays.
Billy: you're a typical, gutless, liberal elite, who only has the balls to be brave when you're in front of your other brain-dead liberal, Hollywood elite friends. Glad I haven't wasted a dime on any of your trash movies over the years. Come to think of it, other than hosting lame awards shows, you're pretty much washed up aren't you?
My wife had it on in the next room. I happened to walk through on my way to the kitchen and heard him talking about Harry Potter making several Billion dollars. Then he cracked that “and he only had to pay 14% taxes.” Lame-o.
Which begs the question, why do Liberals lock their front doors, to protect themselves from people like us or to protect themselves from other Liberals?
I don’t know of any Crackheads, (or Burglars) that Voted for the McCain / Palin Ticket.
Sounds like he went to the Al Franken school of not-so-funny political joke telling.
I guess a “President Algae” joke just wouldn’t be as funny.
I’m going between, Barry, Dave “YUUUUP” Hester (he really gets on my nerves), Jarrod and Brandi et al and a re-run of this years NFL Scouting Combine.
Yeah watching storage wars right now Yyyyyyyyyuuuuuuuuupppp!
That actually sounds like Obama if you ask me
“A dark knight, an American psycho, a charismatic crack addict.” sure he wasnt referring to Obama who is dark,
likes to make sure babies are deadier than dead and admitts to doing cocaine and other drugs and has charisma
My dull life gets even duller with every passing day. LOL
Billy Crystal would lose a fight to Joy Behar.
One of the worse offenders IMO is the popular late night show CoastToCoastAM that claims to be nonpartisan. But more often than not it's like Saturday's guest who declared that the Bush Administration was full of psychos and George Bush is a psycho.. saying that as a youth Bush blew up frogs with firecrackers and on and on for several minutes with reasons why Bush is a psycho.
Listener emails forced the host to ask about Obama -- Obama has traits of a psycho.
I can see how people make that mistake, said the guest. Obama like all of us may have faults but he is not a psycho. The clown claimed that he read Obama's books and anyone who can write like that is definitely not psycho. Well at least now we know that Bill Ayers is not a psycho.
Yeah, C2C listeners may be kooks but they vote and several thousand may have just decided to vote for Obama.
(Someone will come on and defend Bush for balance? Not in the several years since George Noory replaced Art Bell. Has never and will never happen.)
AWW! That was tonight? And I missed it? What a crushing blow!
How will I ever go on without knowing which over inflated ego got stroked with a gold plated hunk of tin. I mean sure, I could watch any news program for the next week and find out, but that’s not the same!
IT’S JUST NOT THE SAME!!!
Why does ANY cnservative watch ANYTHING from Hollyweird??
More to the point, why do conservatives continue to pore their hard-earned money into the wallets of Hollyweird elists who turn around and treat conservatives with didain and derision??
They don’t like us - let them do without OUR money and see how quickly they come begging to get us back!!
I thought we was talking about Obama. :)
Gotham needs you!
Let me think on this, do I want Ricky Gervais back? Hmmm... this is a hard call...hmmm...no. I’ll take Crystal’s snarkiness over Gervais.
Billy Crystal Nacht is an 0bamanite capo and useful infidel..
Much to do about nothing.
I saw the clip. Didn’t seem like it was even funny to the lefties. To be funny, the joke has to make sense. It didn’t.
Thou shalt not speak ill of “The One” for it is blasphemous, even in jest!
That’s how I took it. ; )
Bill Clinton is the only charismatic crack addict that I think of.
