Anybody doubt who George Carlin would be supporting in the primary?



It's pretty obvious.



They want obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and the vanising pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.

And now they're coming for your social security money. They want your fckn retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it all from you sooner or later. 'Cause they own this fckn place. It's a big club. And you ain't in it. You and I are not in The Big Club....

The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged . . .

2. Most likely no one.

 

But it's obvious whom he'd choose among the five currently running with a non-zero chance of winning, if he was going to participate.

3. He would have loved Bernie.

As far as I know he did not participate after the McGovern Nixon election, but he would have loved Bernie.

8. Saw him last on Keith Olbermann

I remember hearing him comment either there or on another interview he didn't vote.

I do remember hi encouraging Keith to keep going on, especially the last ten minutes of his shows and with Special Comment.

Carlin was the ultimate truth teller and it is a big club and you and I don't belong in it. He would love Sanders.

9. Carlin would have been making hay this primary season

But maybe it's just a little too easy these days? I mean, the stuff practically writes itself, especially this week.

"No we can't!"
"The Iraq war only matters to the far left"
"Fuck you!"
"I'm so tired...!"
"I feel sorry for the youth..."
