Rich Little?! Was Flip Wilson (and Geraldine) Too Controversial?

I know a lot of younger people read this blog. I know a lot of you are confused today, because some guy named Rich Little has been selected to fill Steve Colbert's shoes at the White House Correspondents Dinner. To understand, you'll have to have a brief history lesson.

Rich Little was funny back when we had a Republican in the White House who was losing his mind and who provoked a Constitutional crisis. Even when faced with a slimey crook like Dick Nixon, Rich Little poked gentle fun through impersonation. Nothing at all like Colbert's brutally hilarious lampooning of Bush last year.

So, now that we have another Republican as outright lizardlike as Nixon, it's time to bring back Rich Little.

Old people like us have lived through this history once before.

Rich Little, eh?

Guess he owes this gig to Frank Gorshin's untimely demise.

Actually, I thought Rich Little was dead too.

I'm sure Dubya will find Rich Little's humor much more easily digetsed than Colbert's.

No thought required.

"Hey! He sounded just like Kirk Douglas before his stroke!"

It's still almost another year until the dinner, Xavier. There's still a chance that Rich Little will be dead by then. Maybe they can get David Brenner to fill in.
