"Is it just me, or is George Bush the worst President in the history of the United States?"

UPDATE: The video went dead. It showed the comedian Neil Hamburger saying that line, listening while the audience cheered and hooted anti-Bushily, and then saying: "Which makes it all the harder to understand why his son, George W. Bush, is in fact the best president we’ve ever had." Ha ha. I love that.

It's likely that Neil Hamburger is really a weiner whereas in the long run President George Bush will be judged a winner...

WV: preaz (I'm not kidding you!)

Why is a 5 year old clip of Neil Hamburger relevant today?....or are you just testing to see who can stomach this clown?

Ann Althouse said...

"Relevant"... everything here is relevant to: interesting me.

Look at the date on this post and know it's you.

Every guy has some Neil Hamburger in him. There isn't a guy in the world who doesn't want to fall apart...at some time. That's both his appeal and why he makes them cringe. Do women feel anything but disgust? I doubt it.

Ann Althouse said...

I find the act extremely funny, and I am female.

Rodney Dangerfield without the charm.

So...why do I hang out here.

Well...Ann....you are an interesting person....and therefore....I comment...and believe that...I am interesting as well.

Hey, Althouse just outed herself. She admitted to being female. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

He reminds me of a bad Paul Lynde without the charm

I was unable to watch the whole thing because it stunk so much. I doubt if it got any better later on.

Funny stuff. The George Bush joke was good.

Hamburger's depiction of a desperately bad, flop-sweat beslimed hack comic is reminiscent of early Andy Kaufman, but it still takes guts to perform such an act. Most comics are so hungry for their audience's laughs and love they don't dare do something the audience might not 'get' (and therefore elicit boos or strained silences).

I hope he hasn't quit his day job.

Dang Cook! You made me miss Andy Kaufman ... again!

For what it's worth, I thought this guy was funny-great!

Methadras said...

Kaufman has already done this.
