I’m a huge Lewis Black fan. I think that he is probably the funniest (and quite possibly) sanest man in America. Well he is currently doing a gig at the City Center in NYC, and well, making the rounds of various talk show (hey, they apparently have talk shows on the Web!), promoting his show, and talking smack about politics and religion.
What could be better?
What I really found interesting about both of these rants is that he posits that paying taxes is patriotic. Yeah, you read that right. If you are reading this before you watch the vids, his position is that the rich have money, and should pay taxes. Black feels that nothing could be more patriotic. Taxes pay the military, cops, education, clean water, and Hell, what could be more patriotic than all that?
Lewis Black, is a stand-up comic who, for several years has been doing a â€œnews analysisâ€ bit on The Daily Show entitled Back in Black, his most recent segment ran the other night and this is what he had to say.
