The great comedian, author and satirist George Carlin needs little introduction to LRC readers. Carlin has always included politics as part of his material, bashing both conservatives and liberals alike – with hilarious results. He often criticized elections as an illusion of choice. He said the last time he voted was 1972, for George McGovern who ran for President against Richard Nixon.
In the following video Carlin gives his opinion of politicians, elections and the voters who participate. But be warned: As is typical of him, there is a lot of bad language. (4:20)
