(CNN) – Comedian Lewis Black sounded off on what's making him mad on the political front in an interview with CNN's Larry King Monday.
On Hillary and Bill Clinton:
"Oh, boy. Could she - ambition. Ambition to the point of distraction, like exhausting ambition. Like, who's got that kind of energy? Like, who wants it that much? What could she be thinking? Why - why - what's really irritating is the two of them both. You know, they care so much about our country that they're going to kill each other to prove how much they love this country, because we won't be - we won't be going in the right direction unless we pick one of them!
On Barack Obama:
Barack Obama, I don't like hope. OK?
On John McCain:
"The year 2000, you have the opportunity of electing George Bush, what kind of governor of Texas. They meet like twice a year in Texas. Or you have the possibility of electing John McCain when he was sane, when he was a sane man, really, like spectacularly sane. And then they go, well, let's wait until he loses his mind, until he's got to pander to every idiot in sight. "
Lewis Black, for years I have always wondered, what in the world people find funnny about you. ANd you know what Im still wondering.
You are not funnny at all. GET LOST!
Oh Come on, the Clintons won't kill everyone, just the democratic party!! :)
LEWIS BLACK FOR PRESIDENT!
Very smart person, funny but very accurate.
More free advertising for Obama.
deep cuts for Clinton and Mc Cain, and basically nothing about Obama.
When a candidate talks about HOPE, then just elect the sucker. Nothing else can ever be as important as the guy standing up there talking about hope. There is no other requirement at all.
First choice for President:
Second choice for President:
Third choice for President:
I love this guy. He says what we're all thinking even though we're backing candidates.
That's about it – in a nutshell!
What? Was that more coherent on air?!! And why was this posted as news?....
He is awsome, I love Lewis Black.
LOL! " I dont like Hope" That is just so funny. I mean, everybody likes hope, but hope isnt what I am willing to gamble on right now, I need Solutions!!!
Hillary Clinton 2008!!!!
I LOVE Lewis Black. He must be having a field day with this election!!
Another isntance of media "personalities" swaying idiots votes with their opinions.
If you're drinking in all the swill the media pumps out about the candidates, you deserve another Bush for president.
Don't Blame Hillary because of your Bias .. Mr Black!!
You are the Biggest Loser's.. You and the "Black Dreamers"
"I had a Dream".. You all live in an altogether different: "World"...
CONCEDE! Or RECEDE!!! Never to Rise again
i love the comment about Barack. loool
CNN needs to sign Carville and this guy up...
New segment called "Straight Talk"... the show that is not afraid to be politically incorrect!!!
"I was inspired by a dynamic orator whose rousing rhetoric, until just recently, had avoided serious media scrutiny..."
LOL. He's funny.
I do like hope–Barack 08
HAHAHAHAHA I love Lewis Black!
This whole section of Larry King Live just kept reminding me of dumb dumber and dumbest ( that comedy movie with Jim Carrey) I am 38 years old and I still have HOPE that one day the world will be better if not for me then for my children. If you take away hope then you are really left with a rut.
Oh Lewis Black, you are an awesome guy. I am sad though that i haven't been able to see your new show, you deserve a medal for being so awesome.
Obama Richardson 08!!
I do not like talking. Give some real idea.
You can find out bone from egg if you, with "that much energy".
But I agree his last words at the end of the show "Anderson, enjoy your 1996"(about which he said, who cares)
This is news worthy?
Hope is not tangible ! I want my SSI when i retire and if these young people get there way with Obama I wont have anything thats what I believe ! I want someone who looks out for those of us who have put and put and put into the country with are tax dollars for so long and dont have a whole lot of money not like some persons who make 100,000 dollars or more who can care less about me!!
Hillarious... and so true. I love te guy, we should have him as commentator on CNN.
