At an awards ceremony put on by the “People for the American Way” (directions to the “American Way” involve a sharp left turn off a cliff), host of the event Chevy Chase spouted off against President Bush. That’s not surprising, but what Chase had to say was comical in an unintentional sort of way.
After some other expletive filled tripe, Chase said, “This guy in office is an uneducated, real lying schmuck…and we still couldn’t beat him with a bore like Kerry.”
Credit where credit is due– He’s half right.
I managed to learn that Chase was the Valedictorian of his high school class, and got a B.A. in english from Bard college, so he’s obviously in the position to call somebody with an MBA from Harvard and who is President of the United States “uneducated.”
Chase left the dinner a little early. Somebody said he hurt his back, no doubt at having lugged around all that misdirected hate all night. It certainly wasn’t from carrying good scripts or talk show offers.
More laughs. At the dinner, Alec Baldwin and Susan Sarandon accepted their “Defender of Democracy” awards. Who would have thought that United States could be defended soley by two vacuous actors armed only with pointed idiocy?
