Lewis Black: Two-party system ‘a bowl of shit looking in the mirror’

Comedian Lewis Black's first concert film, set to open this week, is unsparing in its criticism of both political parties.

In a clip played by MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, Black says, "Our two-party system is a bowl of shit looking in the mirror at itself. ... Basically, the last eight years, I feel, the Republicans stood around farting and the Democrats went, 'Ooh, let me smell it.'"

"It's a pungent truth," Olbermann commented to Black. "I think it probably has never been more obvious than currently during this health care debate."

"It's just unbelievable," Black agreed. "How did we end up in a position with people defending health insurance companies?"

"What I've always wanted to do with these protesters," Olbermann suggested, "is go, 'What's your personal medical history?' and I would bet you that you'd get 75% of them going, 'Never been sick a day in my life!' That's the only way you could be satisfied."
Story continues below...

Black added with astonishment, however, that "I've become a mainstream comic. ... I'm hosting the USO benefit tomorrow night. ... It seems strange that in our lifetime, we went from Bob Hope to me."

This video is from MSNBC's Countdown, broadcast Oct. 6, 2009.

Listening to DeMOBlican/RepublicRAT "debates" is like endlessly hearing from a bunch of bowls of urine all about how bad bags of feces smell.

The problem with both of these corrupt forms of excrement is that neither form of party excusenik can see anything past their wallets
