Dennis Miller Rants About War and the French
About.com ^

Posted on 03/14/2003 2:31:25 PM PST by locopolitico

Here's a complete transcript of Dennis Miller's hilarious rant on the "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" a couple weeks back. A few choice lines: "I would call the French scum bags, but that, of course, would be a disservice to bags filled with scum." "If you're in a peace march and the guy next to you has a sign that says Bush is Hitler, forget the peace thing for a second and beat his ass, because he is not Hitler."

Speaking of the French, did you know that their tanks have five gears? Yes, it's true. Four reverse gears and one forward gear - in case they are attacked from behind.

Here's the best part:

"You know something, this is — this stuff has got to stop, somebody's got to say something good in this community about this man. ... if you're watching, I want to just say, I think you're doing a hell of a job and I'm proud that you're my president. I want to thank you and wish you Godspeed because you got a tough deal of the cards. I think there are a lot more people out here on your side than you would think."

My absolute favorite Miller Line of all time came from his appearance on Donahue a few weeks ago, a Godfather rip that went more or less like this:

"France? Yeah here's my message to France: Gas up the dinghy and go fishing with Fredo, because you are dead to me!"

wow....Dennis Miller said that? Hell must have froze over and pigs are flying. Dennis, I see you in a whole new light. I'm glad to see that you've come back from the Dark Side.

That brings us to... well, you know where that brings us, to the French. The French, you might as well gas up the dinghy and go fishing with Fredo because you are dead to me, okay. You know something? These pricks are now putting — they're putting swastikas on our flag in France. You've got all those boys buried in Normandy. And after we had the good taste to chisel the armpit hair off the Statue of Liberty you gave us, you know something, I — always thought that tint was oxdized copper. Little did I know it was green with envy.

LOL!

You know, Jay, I used to be a liberal. You look at what happens in the State of California with untethered liberalism. Everybody in this state in charge now is a Democrat. It's no longer the Andreas Fault, it's Gray Davis's fault.

Aint that the truth!

Sadly to say he may have just sunk his boat with the entertainment industry. Remember they are like the press, 98% liberal/communist/antiwar wacko.
I hope it does not affect Dennis as negatively as I think it will.

Dennis Miller is a comedian. He's an independent contractor. His "acting" career never really got traction, so as long as he is able to make people laugh, he'll be fine.

I tend to think there are more Dennis Millers in Hollywood these days than there are Jeanene Garofalos. It's just more difficult to express yourself when you're a liberal who's breaking from the traditional liberal line.

"If you're in a peace march and the guy next to you has a sign that says Bush is Hitler, forget the peace thing for a second and beat his ass, because he is not Hitler."

"1. Political prerequisites. It is my unalterable decision to smash Czechoslovakia Iraq by military action in the near future. It is the job of the political leaders to await or bring about the politically and militarily suitable moment.

"An inevitable development of conditions inside Czechoslovakia Iraq or other political events in Europe the Middle East, creating a surprisingly favorable opportunity and one which may never come again, may cause me to take early action.

"The proper choice and determined and full utilization of a favorable moment is the surest guarantee of success. Accordingly the preparations are to be made at once.

"2. Political possibilities for the commencement of the action. The following are necessary prerequisites for the intended invasion:

"a. Suitable obvious cause and with it, b. sufficient political justification,. c. action unexpected by the enemy, which will find him prepared in the least possible degree.

"From a military as well as a political standpoint the most favorable course is-a lightning-swift action as the result of an incident through which Germany The US is provoked in an unbearable way for which at least part of world opinion will grant the moral justification of military action..."

Ya know, I've got a feeling that the atmosphere in the U.S. is changing and that more and more people are becoming more vocal in favor of what is going on. I really think this is going to be a boost to Miller's career, and rightfully so.

There is a subtle change going on which I am reading on other message boards, more and more people are starting to voice their support of the U.s. and willing to enter into debate against the anti's......

I am optimistic for the first time in a long while.....

So it appears, and as it comes from eshu I'm not surprised.

I believe there is definitely a trend toward conservatism in our country. Which may be why more and more conservative celebs are coming out of the woodwork lately.

Dennis came over in a trade deal. We traded Arianna Huffington for Dennis Miller. - Tom

I have had about enough of this paleo Rothbardian, crypto Randian, paint anybody a fascist who is not running nekkid through the trees with a bong in one hand and a copy of "The Ominous Paralells" in the other, Barabara Streisand. Go take it to LF eshu. You'll fit right in.

Alright Mod, last time was a private request. Now its going public. Can we get this stinking pile offal out of here, permanently? Abuse button pushed.

Well, Halleluah. I was getting ready to plagarize Poohbah's "WHERE IS ZOT? THE WORLD WONDERS." Maybe I'll lurk a little in the sewer today, and see some more vitriol about THE NASTY LITTLE CLIQUE(tm).

I saw Ed Harris one night speaking at a pro-choice — pro-choice rally. Ed Harris the actor said we shouldn't go to war. I was thinking if you can't get your head around the war, why don't you just think of it as choosing to abort Saddam Hussein. Wouldn't that be a rationale that you could possibly —

He was in fine form, judging from the transcript. I wish I'd seen it.

That in itself is sad. I truly believe Miller got too conservative over the years for HBO. HBO Comedy still has his old shows and you can see that his opinion really started changing about 97-98. And what did HBO replace Miller with? Bill Maher. Can't stomach it to watch him, although I may try to catch the repeat this weekend

"I used to be a liberal"
