“These days, I strive to be a bitch, because not being one sucks. Not being a bitch means not having your voice heard. Not being a bitch means you agree with all the bullshit. Not being a bitch means you don’t appreciate all the other bitches who have come before you. Not being a bitch means since Eve ate that apple, we will forever have to pay for her bitchiness with complacence, obedience, acceptance, closed eyes, and opened legs.”
–Margaret Cho, from the forward to Bitchfest
I love George Carlin SO much, and in this interview, he really shows what a thoughtful person he is. We all know he’s funny and smart, but his responses are also disarmingly sincere, considering that I ‘m used to seeing him as a wonderfully crass comedian.
I especially love that moment at the end when he tells young Jon Stewart, “You’re going to show us a lot,” which has turned out to be very true, don’t you think?
