The clip displayed above is more humor in a similar vein, a segment from the 1940 Bob Hope film The Ghost Breakers, synopsized thusly on the IMDb:
Mary Carter (Paulette Goddard) inherits her familys ancestral home, located on a small island off Cuba, and, despite warnings and death threats, decides to take possession of the reputedly haunted castle. She is joined by radio broadcaster Larry Lawrence (Bob Hope) who, believing he has killed a mob gunsel, flees
In the scene shown here, Larry Lawrence (Bob Hope) and Mary Carter (Paulette Goddard) inquire of Geoff Montgomery (Richard Carlson) about the nature of creatures known as zombies, providing the
Lawrence: You live here?
Lawrence: Then maybe you know what a zombie is
Montgomery: When a person dies and is buried, its seems there are certain voodoo priests
Carter: How horrible!
Montgomery: Its worse than horrible because a zombie has no will of his own. You see them sometimes walking around blindly with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring.
Lawrence: You mean like Democrats?

Sorry I was wrong
An oldie but goodie! I always knew Bob Hope was conservative, but seeing him say that in a movie...well, my appreciation of him rose even higher!
Goes to show they were that bad back then too.
Nothing has changed except they got more power than they should have ever been allowed to hold.
One time during the 1950’s Hope was golfing with President Eisenhower at Augusta National when another golfer sliced their shot and it went sailing towards the presidential party and bounced off their golf cart. Hope looked at Ike and said “He’s either a Democrat or he saw my last picture.”
Jimmy Stewart, Henry Fonda about republicans and democrats
"It's true hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance?"
LOLOLO!! Love both these clips.
What Oprah forgot to mention was the men that told him he couldn't vote were all Democrats. It was democrats that stood in school house doorways to keep them segregated. It was W.Wilson that segregated the military. Was Bull Connor a Democrat? Was Gov. Wallace a Dem? How about Gov. Fulbright? In the old video you can see with black marchers getting fire hosed, the police chiefs are all Democrats. There were NO KKK members that were Republicans. The Grand Wizards were all Democrats. Republicans sent troops to integrate the schools. The Republican party was started to ban slavery. The first blacks in congress were all Republicans. The solid south was solid because they were all Democrats.
I'm 67 yo so I watched it. I grew up with separate bathrooms and drinking fountains. The south only changed after prayer was abolished in school and abortion was legalized. Even the Civil rights Act couldn't pass without Republican votes. Gore's father voted no along with many others. For Democrats to have such a strangle hold on minorities is a result of ignorance of history and out right lies. How can a black person that says they love the Lord vote for the party of abortion and sodomy? How thick do the scales have to be to see they have sold their soul for a welfare check.
Comedians in Hope’s day were smart enough to distribute their barbs across both sides of the aisle.
Not like today’s crop of hate-spewing 24/7 Republican-bashers.
Thanks for the laugh and wisdom.
Hope was great!!
And he did it in a funny way. But lefties today ... the way they ridicule Republicans is just downright hateful.
