Lewis Black on Bush censorship of his act (LANGUAGE!!!!)
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:01:26 AM »
Be warned that Black is a Silver Springs, MD native and this is his HBO (no language bleeping) special in Washington, DC itself. He is in the belly of the beast and says so, in this stinging, at times brutally honest look at Jews versus Christians (our God is kinder than his God) --- and then he gets into politics itself. This 2008 program offers up this gem....

"Let's face it. When you went into that voting booth, you had a choice between two bowls of shit. The only difference was the smell."

...And then he gets gnarly with the specifics, on how he had to tailor his act to not offend the President's handlers.  HANDLERS.  And then they put him up facing Dick Cheney instead and here this program gets truly, hysterically funny.  It's raw. It's direct. And although I do disagree with Black (and have seen him in person), I think it's THIS kind of political speech which needs protecting most of all.

Politicians need to be laughed at. Even royalty suffers the court jesters....or should. Here's "Red, White and Screwed"....
