An oxymoron is a phrase that doesn’t match. Like Jumbo Shrimp. Hillary Clinton defining indictment is a liberal oxymoron. Makes little sense.
George Carlin was a very popular comedian in his day. Starting out on That Girl, Carlin’s TV appearances on shows such as The Ed Sullivan Show and Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show brought him national attention. In the 1970’s Carlin became an eccentric, biting social critic and political commentator. He was the first Saturday Night Live host. Numero Uno.
He was also a liberal. Big Time. Dressing in a stereotypically “hippie” style, with a beard, long hair and jeans, he would joke about religion and politics. And refer to drugs. And he was funny.
Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. – George Carlin
Carlin was also a 1st Amendment warrior. His routine “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television” (1973) led to a complaint by the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC banned the broadcast as indecent. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the order and it remains in effect today.
