Racist drivel.

I am amazed you would put this up.

Haven't seen it yet, I'm at work, but speaking of controversial, did you catch the Bill Hicks routine Letterman showed on Friday, that he originally had cut in 1993? It's up at the CBS late show site, I'm sure also on youtube.

The Bill Hicks stuff was funny especialy towards the end, so is the work of the late George Carlin or just about anything that goes after the Musim religion or any religion for that matter... fine by me.

But... I have a problem with steriotyping Arabs/Persians, seeing as we are over there bombing thier villages at the moment for who know why. American attitudes towards these people is messed up.

Jeff Dunham has gotten more and more into the racist category. I know it is a thin line that comedians dance on between offensive and funny, and normally I rarely ever hear a comedian cross it.

Recently though, Dunham has delivered jokes that strike me more as racist than funny. I can't even put my finger on what exactly it is that makes him come across as racist as opposed to just being edgy, but the feeling I get from his recent standup is that he has racist feelings against Arabs and blacks.

I don't think he's too bad, but I wouldn't say his act is good. The dead terrorist bit especially gets tiresome. It's basically "I kill you" dragged on and on, and just feels like filler.

This guy is a hack.

Seriously, why is this up?

Jeez um, lighten up folks.

When he first wiped it out I thought the dead terrorist would be racist. at the end of the video I sort of didn't come to that conclusion, bad taste certainly.

The guy is generally a hack, but such is the nature of a ventriloquist.

I am sure norm pasted it because he is mocking a religious extremist. Not always a PC activity, but usually funny.

Such is the nature of Leno. I think Letterman had this guy over on "ventriloquist week" a few months ago, but there were others that actually were impressive.

And I was wrong above, this is not controversial, this is just bad. Reminds me of a skit Leno did years ago, pretty sure in 2003. He brought up mock products of some sort, and one of them was a doormat of a "terrorist" (a muslim, of course), where you cleaned your shoes on the beard. My friend immediately said, "these [slang word for Americans], I bet if he had a muslim in front of him he'd crap his pants". Which is pretty much true.

I don't get why Leno is more popular than, say, Kimmel. I mean the whole Matt Damon thing? And who else can get Harrison Ford Don Cheadle, Brad Pitt, Josh Groban, Cameron Diaz, Ben Affleck, among many others to appear and sing on a video called "I'm fucking Ben Affleck". They wouldn't have done it for anyone else, let alone that unfunny bastard Leno.

Red Seven.

This is over the line because made in America armaments are currently being dropped on civilians in Afghanistan. Its over the line because of the 1300 people that have just been slaughtered in Gaza... one third of them kids. This is not just over the line, its a discrace. Dehumanisation of other cultures is a big problem in the West.

I would expect the owner of this site to see the difference between going after religion and demigrating a victimised society.

re:seeing the difference between denigrating a "religion" and a "victimized society"-as someone who's come out on the wrong end of this equaition both ways and many timees, i wouldn't have it any other way. i strongly support norm's (or any bloggers)right to insult or criticize anyone he chooses, no matter how "victimized".

The 66-year-old Garrett has been the Trojans’ athletic director for 17 years, but he received caustic criticism for his handling of USC’s scandals. The school didn’t say whether Garrett retired or had been fired.

Both Garrett and Haden are former USC football players. Garrett won the Heisman Trophy in 1965, while Haden was the Trojans’ starting quarterback for three years in the 1970s under coach John McKay.
