Friday Night Standup - Dennis Miller

  • A new poll shows that Senator Kerry's support in the South is strongest amongst blacks. Kerry's appeal to Southern blacks is obvious. He is a white man who lives far, far away.
  • A recent police study found that you're much more likely to get shot by a fat cop if you run.
  • I still feel pangs of remorse over an insidious habit I've had since I was a teenager. About three times a week, I attend estate auctions and make insulting, low-ball bids for prized heirlooms until I'm asked to leave.
  • I'm like Bush, I see the world more like checkers than chess.
  • If some unemployed punk in New Jersey, can get a cassette to make love to Elle McPherson for $19.95, this virtual reality stuff is going to make crack look like Sanka.
  • Police in Washington D.C. are now using cameras to catch drivers who go through red lights. Many congressmen this week opposed the use of the red light cameras incorrectly assuming they were being used for surveillance at local brothels.
  • President Bush gave his first-ever presidential radio address in both English and Spanish. Reaction was mixed, however, as people were trying to figure out which one was which.
  • Washington, DC is to lying what Wisconsin is to cheese.
  • What is guilt? Guilt is the pledge drive constantly hammering in our heads that keeps us from fully enjoying the show. Guilt is the reason they put the articles in Playboy.
  • As for what many are calling racial profiling in the aftermath of September 11th, well, get ready to be pissed off, you ACLU-Fucking-Morons, we're dealing with a massive threat and limited manpower, so, you want them to check everybody out equally? Sure, fine okay, but let's at least compromise and put the Swedish dwarf a little further down the list than the Iraqi explosives expert carrying a Belgian passport with more eraser marks on it than Kid Rock's trig final.
  • There's a lot of differing data [about global warming], but as far as I can gather, over the last hundred years the temperature on this planet has gone up 1.8 degrees. Am I the only one who finds that amazingly stable? I could go back to my hotel room tonight and futz with the thermostat for three to four hours and I would not detect that difference.
  • Sure, the lion is the king of the jungle, but, airdrop him into Antarctica and he's just a penguin's bitch.
  • And quit bringing up our forefathers and saying they were civil libertarians. Our founding fathers would have never tolerated any of this crap. For God's sake, they were blowing peoples' heads off because they put a tax on their breakfast beverage. And it wasn't even coffee.
  • You know there is a problem with the education system when you realize that out of the 3 R's only one begins with an R.

Dennis Miller has always been one of my favorite comedians, even before he made his turn to the right. Too bad his show on CNBC got cancelled last week.

Lorna said...

Funny, but wrong, so wrong. Just like my first husband, now that I think about it. And why did you have to make me think about it?

Comfort Addict said...

Dennis Miller has always bothered me for some reason. He's okay when he's in wry mode but, more often than I like, his humor seems a veneer for anger.

Laurie said...

Skizz, Lorna and Comfort Addict - I think Dennis Miller is a living doll and his quickness and cleverness impress me. However, I also agree with you guys and I'm not a big fan of his rants although I am amazed by them.

Sylvana said...

Does Dennis Miller really think Kid Rock took trig? I don't even think he could get through the prerequisites.

Laurie said...

Sylvana - You never know. It could all be an act. Wouldn't it be funny, if Kid Rock were really a genius?
