George Carlin, RIP

June 23, 2008

Sad news. George Carlin has died. In his heyday in the Seventies, Carlin was sheer comic genius, a caustic wit who scorched his targets (usually on the Right) with screamingly funny monologues. He wasn’t nearly as funny in later years, perhaps his time had passed, but his best routines still had the power to make me laugh.

In Carlin’s memory, here’s one of my favorites: Carlin on the differences between football and baseball.

There are no Whole Foods in Iowa.
