George Carlin on Politicians

Now there’s one thing you might have noticed I don’t complain about . . . politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck

Yeah, well where do people think these politicians come from?

They don’t fall out of the sky! They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality!

They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses, and American universities; and they’re elected by American citizens!

This is the best we can do folks!

This is what we have to offer! It’s what our system produces: garbage in garbage out!

If you have selfish ignorant citizens . . . if you have selfish ignorant citizens you’re going to get selfish ignorant leaders!

The term limits ain’t going to be any good! You’re just going to wind up with a brand-new bunch of selfish ignorant Americans so maybe, maybe, maybe, it’s not the politicians who suck! Maybe something else sucks around here . . . like the public!

Yeah the public sucks! There’s a nice campaign slogan for somebody! The public sucks because if it’s really just the fault of these politicians then where are all the other bright people of conscience where are all the bright honest intelligent Americans ready to step in and save the nation and lead the way?

We don’t have people like that this country!

Everybody’s at the mall scratching his ass, picking his nose, taking his credit card out of his fanny pack and buying a pair of sneakers with lights in them!

So I have solved this little political dilemma for myself in a very simple way.

On election day I stayed home. I don’t vote. I don’t vote for two reasons. Two reasons I don’t vote. First of all it’s meaningless. This country was bought and sold and paid for a long time ago. The stuff they shuffle around every four years doesn’t mean a thing!

And secondly I don’t vote because I believe if you vote you have no right to complain. People like to twist that around. I know they say, they say, well if you don’t vote, you have no right to complain. Where’s the logic in that? If you vote and you elect dishonest, incompetent people, and they get into office and screw everything up; well you are responsible for what they have done!

You caused the problem! You voted them in! You have no right to complain!

I, on the other hand . . . who did not vote . . . who did not vote . . . who in fact did not even leave the house on Election Day . . . am in no way responsible for what these people have done and have every right to complain as loud as I want about the mess you created that I had nothing to do with.

So I know that a little later on this year you’re going to have another one of those really swell presidential elections that you like so much you’ll enjoy yourselves. It’ll be a lot of fun!

I’m sure as soon as the election is over, your country will improve immediately. As for me, I’ll be home on that day doing essentially the same thing as you. The only difference is when I finish masturbating, I’m going to have a little something to show for it folks!
