Dana Carvey, Jon Lovitz Note Comics Refuse To Make Jokes About Barack Obama
— Ace

I listened to this yesterday. This clip misses some of Carvey's observations (and his impression of Barack Obama at the beginning), but it has a lot of it.

I've had this idea that Dana Carvey was fairly conservative for a while. It's no that he says conservative things; it's that when given an opportunity to say the easy, obvious liberal thing, he usually doesn't. I doubt he's any kind of solid conservative, and probably voted for Obama last time (as many people did), but I do get this vibe off him.

There are two things in this appearance that suggested further that he's conservative leaning. The first is that he makes reference to the idea (only briefly alluded to in the clip; earlier he was more detailed) that it is a standard method of shutting down conversation and discussion to label a statement as "hate speech" and, therefore, unworthy of any further consideration.

Conservatives don't own that idea, certainly, but it does seem like we're more keenly aware of it, as it's so often directed at us.

The other thing is that after this clip (again, not part of it), Lovitz states that he doesn't think that either Romney or Obama has actually explained how they'd fix the economy. This is one of those times where if Carvey were a liberal, I'd expect him to just agree, or tell Lovitz that Obama does indeed have a plan.

Instead he did the opposite, saying something like "well, actually, Romney says he wants to get the government out of the way and he thinks that will get business productive again."

It's not conclusive or anything. But I find it interesting that it was just so easy for him to sit there and just say "Yup, neither one of these guys has a plan." And yet maybe it wasn't easy for him.

The clip itself is about how comedians still won't make jokes about Obama, although both agree that there are "sensitivities" and "emotions" about it, and Carvey agrees it was hard to "find an angle" on Obama earlier. However, Carvey specifically goofed on comedians who are "still" making Sarah Palin jokes but apparently won't attempt to poke fun of the actual guy currently in power. "Question Authority," he notes, seems to be out the window.

I might be over-reading things here, because Carvey's main motivation seems to be balance, that is, not angering his fan base, keeping above it, keeping his eye on the fact that his job is "entertaining people" and not "preaching politics at them." That said, that's kind of a conservative stance too.

I'll see if I can dig up a longer clip of his appearance. Incidentally, this was yesterday, on the Dennis Miller show, Lovitz guest hosting, Carvey phoning in as a guest.

11 Plus, I always thought Carvey's George H. W. Bush impersonation was not a send up but an homage.

Carvey never seemed mean with any of his impressions or characters. You could tell that his goal was to do the best impression possible -- both funny and accurate.

I've gotten the impression that Carvey doesn't (didn't?) like to talk about politics, that it was alienating and that he didn't feel the need to piss off half his audience just so he could get in with the bien pensant Hollywood crowd.  That could just be some projection on my part.

But the guy hasn't had serious work in a while.  It would be sooooo easy for him to go all libtard and get a few guest spots. He might just think it's crass to talk politics.

Turns out that SNL cast was pretty conservative.  Not full blown conservatives, but definitely not typical hollywood liberals.  I have a feeling that Hartman and Farley probably had some conservative tendancies, and Sandler has to be somewhat conservative seeing that he cares not one bit about artistic quality and only about making money (nothing wrong with that). 

 

Of course, Franken was part of that cast too.  Maybe his BS is what has led some of these others to go the more conservative route.  Who knows.

I like Dana Carvey.   I loved his GHW Bush and Perot inpressions on SNL.  I don't mind a comedian poking fun at the guys on MY side when I know he or she is just as likely to poke fun at the guys on the OTHER side.  In that situation, I don't care what the     comedian's own political leanings are.    It's nice to hear someone, be he conservative or not, calling for that same kind of even-handed treatment that used to be de rigeur.

17 Good point about Dana Carvey's Bush.  Also, Hartman's Clinton was in general pretty easy going, but funny.  At least those impersonations could appeal to a mass audience.  The last time SNL did that was in the Bush v. Gore debates.  Then SNL's Bush became much more mean spirited, and SNL started losing some audience.

21 It think, like both Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell, there are a lot of people who just "accept" Liberalism.  Once they actually find themselves looking at the facts (something that has to be voluntary), they move Conservative.

I think Lovitz and Carvey both fall into this camp.

Posted by: AllenG (Dedicated Tenther) Channelling Breitbart at July 31, 2012 09:35 AM (8y9MW)

22 Carvey isn't usually mean-spirited.  That might indicate he's not a liberal, either.

I think at this point he's an "independent liberal". He's liberal and can point to a few issues if he's pressed, but he really doesn't trust the rest of the movement or anybody in it.

Every once in a while a Democrat comes along that makes liberals realize the incompetence of the people in their movement.

Let's face it......Barky leaves a trail of comedic gold in his wake.

 

Moreso than Gerald Ford, stumbling a couple of times.....moreso than anything that either of the Bushes did.

There is a shit ton of material for jokes about Barky.

But it's like there's been a gag-order against using any of it.

 

This should offend anyone in the entertainment world.....anyone with any semblance of a working brain.

 

 

Also over at Breitbart....

to "Shove it!".....after he told them to "Kiss my ass". 

And it's the "Shove it!" part that really has gotten their panties in a wad.

And there's *really* nothing funny about the MFM treating him like a precious flower, ignoring his faults, and the Media-Entertainment complex insisting there's just nothing there to make fun of. Even ignoring the 300-400 scandals he's been attached to, initiated or otherwise involved with, from the comically threatening NBPP to Solyndra to Gulf oil and FandF, with Turbo Tax Timmy and Valerie "Rattus Chicagous" Jarret and "beer summits" inbetween. The entertainment industry is Izvestia, the press corps is Pravda. And they *volunteered* for it.

Obama will have set the let back for a generation.  They will come back, like a bad cancer cell, but at least we will have them gone for a while.  This is the first step, admitting that liberals really are against free speech and they really do want to tax you to death.  Miller, Lovitz, Carvey would never become Republicans, but that is ok.  Alot of republicans don't really believe in conservative values.  Getting them in the conservative camp is a good step forward.

They're bitter and they'll always be bitter, and that's where they get their acid edge. Dana's more of a Horace guy, i.e., well-adjusted. Horatian satire is for the right-thinkers who don't always have their knickers in a knot. Think Chaucer, Shakespeare, Austen.

Pretty much.

Chris Rock and Al Franken are the main flaming liberals I can think of from that timeframe while Carvey, Miller, Lovitz, Sandler, Victoria Jackson, and others were either conservative or at least libertarian.

I know less about Chris Farley's personal politics but his brother, who was in An American Carol, is certainly right of center.

No.  Only if they are attacking normal culture, but never if they are attacking those who attack normal culture.  That is a death sentence for them.

Defenders of sanity and reason never gain celebrity in that pursuit unless the society is, itself, sane.

Actually, Jay Leno has been doing a lot of Obama jokes lately, and getting big laughs.  It's one way you can always tell the sitting President is in trouble.  Even Jimmy Fallon has done a few here and there. 

 

But of course, SNL is the big one.  If they really don't go after Obama this fall, in an election year, the show will close after this season, guaranteed.  Nobody will watch it.  They managed to make Al Gore funny, they can surely make Barack Obama funny.

79 They managed to make Al Gore funny, they can surely make Barack Obama funny.

The problem is, from their point of view, they did *too good* a job of it with Gore.

The Bush-Gore debate skit with Gore interrupting everyone, making dismissive sounds, and talking about the lockbox was hilarious because it was spot on.

The Bush impression by Will Ferrell was funnier by being out there.  W and company had fun with that skit by later forming a "Department Of Strategery" based off a Ferrell comment.

81 Barky is a walking joke ... when he's not destroying everything of value he can.  But, he's black, so no one can point that out (as we know even here as stuff that would be regular for any other president was not allowed for the Precedent).  White guilt is powerful stuff and it is more destructive than any nuclear weapon, as we've seen with our nation being totally taken apart in the last three years, culminating in the new declaration of "taxing inactivity" in order to assuage the white guilt of having to tell the piece of shit, America-hating Indonesian that he was out of line in his illegal, un-American, un-Constitutional and criminal feral takeover of 1/6 of the economy.

That's how it goes and that's how the greatest nation to have ever existed has taken itself down.  We are now in the American Socialist Superstate  and we got there because of one reason and one reason only, which Lovitz and Carvey are still too pussified to really acknowledge.

I don't think that scoamf has a sense of humor.

 

That by itself is hysterical.

83 Regarding Farley, what we do know was he struggled with his Catholic faith, but never seemed to have abandoned it.  I get the feeling he may have been pro-choice and pro-gay marriage, but he never would have had the vitriol to those who were pro-life and pro-traditional marriage.  He probably just wanted everyone to get a long.  That is very different from much of today's left who seem to have nothing but scorn for any non-leftist thought.  Just my two-three-four cents.

84 Its pretty easy to find the real comedians and quality guys by who will rip on Obama and who won't. And there are so few its disgusting.

He isn't very smart and is extremely insecure so when he does something that he's not very good at, specifically bowling but it really could've been anything including basketball, he subsequently makes a dumbass comment about the Special Olympics on Leno without having the foresight that God gives marginal retards to think "this might not be such a fucking bright idea".

How the hell couldn't SNL make fun of "You didn't make that"?

 

Mr Mike is rolling around in his grave, in his grave!!!

 

It's funny to see that slob Danny Aykroyd has completely joined the evil 1% and shills vodka all day long...Mr. Subverise is now as joined with his head up the ass of the liberal twats as Babs Streisand.

It's just pathetic. He was a hero of mine...he's been a douche for a long time now, just like Stern, another pathetic no talent joke.

88 My most embarrassing moment was when I met Dana Carvey and could only remember his name as Ed Grimley. he was so gracious and kind about it that it made the situation worse.

89 I saw Dana Carvey in a recent stand up act. I definitely think he leans to the right, he was slamming Obama (and the audience was whooping in delight because everyone is so scared to mock him, it was a breathe of fresh air) he also gave some roundabout praise to Mitt Romney.

It wasn't obvious partisanship, but I'd make a large wager he's voting for Romney.

90 I think we're spending far too much time deconstructing Chris Farley. All I know is you can tell a lot about your steak by sticking your head up your ass, but I'd rather take the butcher's word for it.

91 My basic rule regarding the politics of public figures is that if you don't know, then he's not a liberal. Liberals just can't contain themselves for long; they simply must drop clues that reveal how "cool" they are.

92 And, anyone who has more than two brain cells to rub together understands full well that you never even contemplate giving serious power to someone you cannot criticize or ridicule in any way you like.  Doing such is nothing short of suicide and about the dumbest thing one could ever do.  That is what PC has led to.  It doesn't matter if the individual in question doesn't care what you say, if society is organized in such a way that speech of any sort is squelched because of surface attributes, and even worse, people are scared to pursue criminal charges against obvious criminals abusing power because of the same, then putting such people into power is about the most reckless and ridiculous action any society can take.  That is what this PC crap leads to.

If Mitt wins, I know that I can say pretty much anything I want about him - about any of his features, about his family if I even care to, about anything - and no on is going to jump on some insane idea of "hate speech".  I can rip on Mormonism all day and everyone knows that I am allowed to do that, whether they agree with me or not.  If Mitt commits a crime in office, I have little fear that he will not be vigorously pursued and held accountable, to the best of the abilities of those in Congress, at least. 

One cannot even think of voting for someone who they cannot be assured of the above, since that is how truly insane abuses of power occur and build up right in front of everyone's eyes - and there is little worse than illegal things that everyone knows about and, therefore, are tacitly accepting in their intentionally ignoring them.  Even if I agreed with someone 100% and trusted them fully, if I thought that I would ever have a problem making any joke about them or critique of them or accusation against them I would just not vote for them to have any power, as all sentient beings should think.

Isn't it ironic that Hollyweird may blackball you for NOT

Posted by: seamrog at July 31, 2012 10:55 AM (gPlQc)

94 I have a faint memory of Dana Carvey doing a HBO stand up special right before the 2008 election in which he drooled all over Obama. Also right before the 2008 election he did a SNL skit where they did a Of Mice and Men bit where Senior George contemplated killing his son George simply because George was so stupid. "Can't do it....wouldn't be prudent". Also, about 2 weeks ago Carvey appeared on the Tonight Show and mentioned Mormon's and the "magic underwear". He ain't that conservative.

96 well, he was on leno IIRC and he was given the typical lefty chance to say Shibboleth and instead he offered criticism of SCOAMF, saying that SCOAMF was like a doctor with a patient in the ER dying of a gunshow wound and Obama only cared about fixing the knee ligaments, doing knee rehab. In this analogy, the GSW is the bad economy and the knee rehab (i.e., irrelevancy) was obamacare.

98 Um, I've never gotten the vibe Dana was even somewhat conservative. I think he's pulling a Jon Stewart here. Hey, I'll defend conservatives every once in a while so I'm so independent minded even though I agree with liberals 99 percent!

100 "I might be over-reading things here, because Carvey's main motivation seems to be balance, that is, not angering his fan base, keeping above it, keeping his eye on the fact that his job is "entertaining people" and not "preaching politics at them." That said, that's kind of a conservative stance too."

That is actually commom-sense; which is pretty conservative.  Carvey's worked in Hollywood and through that he knows politics, how people react to other people when they are assessing the power people have, how that can be used to raise or lower someone.  And it seems he is smart enough to keep extraneous politics at an arm's length; why open a fight on a front that can only hurt him?

Darn, dead thread, as I actually have something (second, or third-hand) to contribute.  A lifelong friend who knew Carvey in the SF Bay area through a shared school for their kids said in fact he is quite normal, and friendly, and seemed a lot more sane than - uh - the majority of folks at the events they attended (we are talking the SF area).

 

I believe I've also read where Carvey's contact with the Bush family following his iconic impersonations of GHWB left him very comfortable and fond of the whole family, their decency and intelligence.  Not hard to believe that Carvey is actually pretty normal and reasonable about political matters - there are some like that in Hollyweird, though they usually have to be quite careful.
