Quotes

George Carlin: It's the old American double standard. Say one thing, do something different. And, of course, the country is founded on the double standard. That's our history. This country was founded on a very basic double standard. This country was founded by slave owners who wanted to be free.

We really don't need any of those guys.
21 May 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Once again, George Carlin skewers the irritation and hypocrisy in our society. My favorite part was his rant about the FCC (and this was before Janet Jackson's nipple on the Superbowl). I will say that "George Carlin: What Am I Doing in New Jersey?" isn't his best work; I just saw "You Are All Diseased" a few weeks ago and liked it better. But any of his work is still great. As long as there are f---ed up characteristics of our society - especially anything about politics - he'll always have something to talk about.

Anyway, this is just more proof of what a great comedian he is. As far as I'm concerned, all of his seven dirty words belong everywhere.
