He was unusual for a comic in that he was extremely bright, and extremely honest, and he respected his audience enough to assume they were smart enough to "get" his humor, and mature enough to handle his honesty.

Lord knows, in the era of George Bush Jr., American badly needs people who are both intelligent and honest.

If you're looking for a politician with both of those qualities, you'll be searching a long, long time.

RIP, George, the world is poorer for your passing.

I know one personally, but he's no longer a politician. Take that as you will..

Not sure how I feel. The skit was brilliant, but I got the impression that he was coasting for 30 years after that, using that one skit for his meal ticket.

Yeah, but not at ages 3.5 and 2, please. All we need is them making even more sense in their insubordination and pointing out Daddy's daily hypocrisy and oxymoronic behavior.

They're going to have to discover the Carlin stuff on their own, just like I had to. It's much more subversive that way.

“ The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating…and you finish off as an orgasm!" George Carlin (1937-2008)

RIP, buddy. You had the right idea.
