It’s time Rush learns Chinese:
All I can say is…
Is Rush Limbaugh a comedian?
His second attempt at it sounded more like Japanese I thought.
Normally, I don’t care for what The Young Turks say because I don’t think they add anything new to the conversation, but I kind of agree with this segment about how juvenile it sounds to imitate asian languages. Are the young Turks being fair, though?
They have a liberal viewpoint, but so does Rosie O’Donnell. She actually said “Ching Chong” or something like that in imitation of some Asian language. Then there is the comedy show from Britain where the woman imitates what several languages sound like as she fakes being an interpreter. There are several people who do “fake” languages on youtube to garner laughs, I guess. What about Saturday Night Live? They usually have a liberal viewpoint.
Some people think this is funny, that’s the bottom line. I don’t think it’s a conservative versus liberal, provincial versus cosmopolitan thing.
For a really good Cantonese imitation check out Russel Peters, a Canadian of Indian origin who gets away with imitating anyone, and does a really good job.
I imagine that Not wants to act “fairly” to all comedians and classifies them into four types, that is, 1)conservative-provincial, 2)liberal-provincial, 3)conservative-cosmopolitan, 4)liberal-cosmopolitan. Am I right? I would classify comedians into only two types, that is, funny comedians and not-so-funny comedians. I feel that Rush Limbaugh is not a talented comedian.
Rush Limbaugh is a very talented polemicist.
I love it that tora3 thinks all these political radio personalities are comedians… The comedy is that these people have jobs in our culture.
“Am I right?”
My impression is that you lean rather toward the left, actually.
Joking aside, my remarks were related to the comments by the man in TYT video, tora3.
“Rush Limbaugh is a very talented polemicist.”
I think this is fair to say.
@Steve I watched that Russell Peters video a while back, but I completely forgot about it. What a laugh! It never gets old.
